  1. ASA- After School Activities Trimester 1: Sorry for the error in the students signup sheet, “It should read starting date-Monday 19 September and not Wednesday 19 September”
Information and sign up forms were sent home on Tuesday and these are to be returned to Ms. Celeste in the office. If your child has not returned their form, please make sure it is returned on Monday so I can complete the lists by the end of next week. I have attached the ASA sign up sheets for ES and MS/HS.
