"Hello Windsong Height Families,

As many of you are aware, we are having our Remembrance Day Services tomorrow.  This is a very significant event and every year a great deal of work goes into the ceremony.  We know that some families would like to be able to attend the school service.  Unfortunately, this is not possible due to fire regulations and capacity of our gym.  Our school population of 950 children does not allow space and seating for parents, grandparents, and younger siblings to attend. We realize that this is disappointing and that families would like to be here to support their children and the school.  We ask for your understanding as space capacity is a safety issue and we are required to adhere to guidelines set by the fire marshal.

Heads up for next week:

Wednesday, Nov 13 - Picture re-take day.  Please bring back original proofs.
