Good Evening Robert Little Families!

(Please read to the bottom of this email for important messages and attachments)

We had such a great week wearing our Rainbow of Colours to recognize and support our LGBTQ+ community!  It was a tough task finding items to wear each day and has opened up many conversations around inclusion and acceptance of differences.

Though there are only 10 days of school left...we have a TON of things going on around the school.  Next week is Track and Field Day, Play Day, practice for the Talent Shows and many of our clubs are ending for the year. Please be prepared for your child to begin bringing home items from school for you to look over, store, frame, or toss!

The Director’s Cut

Our Director of Education, Mr Stuart Miller, has been sharing short videos on our social media to highlight the wonderful things that we do as the Halton District School board.  Please follow this link to watch Episode #2!

Early Dismissal

On Friday June 28th, our school will dismiss 90 minutes early.  Students will be done for the 2018-2019 School year at 2:05.  Dismissal will take place from our Learning Garden! Families are welcome to join us at 2:00 to hear our closing words as we ‘ring the school bell’ for Summer Break!

For students who take school bus transportation to school: Halton Student Transportation Service (HSTS) has a bus stop calculator on their webpage for parents/guardians to use to calculate their child(ren)'s bus stop times on this day.  

For students who walk to school: Crossing guards will be in place based on the change in schedule for the day.

 

A Message from your Parent Council:

Parent Council would like to celebrate the end of school year with a complimentary pizza lunch for all students.  We will offer two slices of cheese pizza to grades 1-5 and one slice for kindergarten.  The pizza lunch will take place on Monday June 24th for grades 1-5 and Wednesday June 26th for our Kindergarten classes.  Please visit Cash Online and make a selection for your child(ren). Gluten Free and Vegan options are available.

Thank you to all the parents who have helped support Parent Council in any capacity this year.  We look forward to the 2019/2020 school year and hope to see many new faces join our team.  Parent Council's primary objective is to raise funds to support the learning of our children.  We have members 'retiring' from our school so any time you can give will be greatly appreciated so that we can continue to run programs like our Pizza Days.  Please watch out for the volunteer form that will come home with the first week package in September.  We wish you a safe and fun summer!

It is hard to believe that it is almost June!  We have so much to do in these final 20 days of school.  As the weather gets warmer families are asked to ensure your children come to school with a refillable water bottle so they can stay hydrated and cool as the classrooms warm up!  Children will begin bringing home work and personal items over the next few weeks as we prepare to say goodbye to the 2018-2019 school year.

School Council Meeting June 3rd at 7:00 PM

This will be our final School Council of the year.  We have Allison Hilborn coming from Our Kids Network, and some data to share on this year’s Have Your Say Survey.  All families are welcome to attend our Council meetings! The meetings are a great way to keep up to date with the goings at Robert Little and HDSB!  

Hope to see some new faces Monday Night!

What a wonderful day to Jump Rope for Heart!  Our students and staff spent the last hour of our school day jumping, hula-hooping, dancing and running as we raise funds and awareness for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Thank you to all the families for your generous donation to this worthy cause! We are very grateful to Mme Huc for all her organizing to make today a huge success!  Merci Madame!

 

Volunteer Tea

We loved having so many of our volunteers able to attend our Volunteer Tea on Wednesday. There were so many people who have volunteered this year, and were unable to come.  From all of the staff and students at Robert Little we want you to know how grateful we are for everything you do to support our work. This is such a great community to be apart of, and we couldn’t do it without all your help!  Thank you volunteers!

 

Fundraising for the Halton Hills Community Park at Robert Little

Please find below an advertisement from Cody’s Cows for their Teddy Bear Picnic coming up the first weekend in June.  This proceeds from this event will be put forward to our new Playground. We hope our North Star Families will be able to support this event!

 

Rafiki Bracelets - Me to We Club Rafiki Sales

At the beginning of the year, The Me to We students decided they wanted to sell rafiki bracelets as one of our fundraisers for the year.  They have been working hard making posters and writing morning announcements!

Rafiki Bracelets are inspired by Maasai beading traditions in Kenya, handmade with love by women we know as mamas—extraordinary, talented women who are beading their way to a brighter future for themselves and their families.

The bracelets will be sold for the month of May through CashOnline are $10-$15 each and will take about 2 weeks to arrive. With every Rafiki bracelet purchased, Robert Little's Me to We Club will be directing the money towards our pillar —education opportunities in India.

Fourth and Final Notice: Classroom Placement for 2019-2020

This is an opportunity for families to provide the office with a written outline of your child’s needs and what styles of teaching have been successful for your child in the past.

 

As a reminder, we do not take into consideration any requests for specific teachers due to classroom size restrictions and staffing changes that can happen over the next few months. We must stress that the class building process takes many areas into consideration when placing students. Please email Mrs. Colleen Golightly directly, or drop a letter off at our main office.

Along with our cast, all grade three, four, and five students will be performing musical numbers. To ensure we really set the scene of our musical, we are asking for all students involved to assist in their costume. We are just looking for a 1950's-inspired outfit for students to wear. Keep in mind, the students are singing and dancing on stage. Most items you may have at home but, here's a list of iconic 1950's celebrities to draw inspiration from! 


- Marilyn Monroe

- Elizabeth Taylor

- Doris Day

- Lucille Ball

- James Dean

- Elvis Presley 

- Frank Sinatra

- John Wayne 


We thank you for helping us make this a wonderful event!  More information will be sent home in the coming week. Let us know if you need any assistance in finding items that fit our 50's theme. We are more than happy to help!

It has been a very busy week at Robert Little! Spring is hopefully here to stay.  


Parking Lot


As Spring has sprung we are asking for our Families to remind their children about Parking Lot Safety.  Students should not be walking through the parking lot to find the car picking them up. We ask that the driver either park their car in a designated parking spot, walk to the blacktop and walk back to the car with the child, OR wait in the line of cars and only allow the children to enter your car when you reach the blacktop.


We know waiting in a long line of parked cars is perhaps frustrating, however we are building parking lot safety routines with the children. We do not want the children to feel it is ok to walk between stopped cars.  


Community Playground Fundraising Raffle


Thank you to our school community! Our Community Playground Raffle raised $1260.00.  We will inform the Town of Halton Hills and make additions to the planned Playground.  Keep an eye out for more information from the Town regarding the design and construction dates!


Dance a thon- One Week to Go!


We are looking forward to our Annual Dance a thon on Thursday April 18th!  We can not wait to don our white and glow items and dance the day away! Be sure to get your families and friends to sponsor your children for this school based fundraiser. Pledge envelopes are due back to the office on Monday, but families can still donate online using the donate button.


Thank you to all the families who have already placed their GLOW Order . There will be limited quantities available on the day of for purchasing. Students will need to pay cash for any items purchased at the Dance a thon!


Staff Appreciation Breakfast


We would like to take this time and thank our school council for planning and organizing the staff appreciation breakfast which took place this morning.  All the staff were overwhelmed with gratitude and joy as the delicious items were pouring in.


A HUGE Shoutout to all of you, for all your baking, your platters of fruit, your delicious ehnic inspired dishes, for the eggs, donuts, muffins, juice and yogurt we were definitely well fed.  Thank you for all of you who contributed by making a monetary contribution, council was able to purchase a carafe of coffee and tea which kept us going all day.


It is truly amazing to be part of this wonderful community.  Thank you North Stars!
