Carnaval de Carrville Mills – Fri. Feb. 17th -Grades 4-8

Dear Families,

Part of the expectations of the French curriculum is to develop an appreciation of French culture. An important part of French-Canadian culture is the Winter Carnaval, which takes place each year in Quebec City. To pay homage to this wonderful cultural celebration, we will be creating our own mini Carnaval at CMPS!

We will kick things off  with a week-long game of Bingo. The first class in each division (primary, junior, intermediate) to get one line will win a hot-chocolate party!

Classrooms JK- Grade 8 will also be are invited to compete in our Carnaval door decorating competition. The winning class will earn major bragging rights!

Weather permitting, the week will culminate with an outdoor winter Carnaval on Friday, February 17th. The Carnaval will begin at 1:25pm and end at 3:10pm. The Grade 8s will manage activities and lead teams of students in Grades  4-7 through the various stations.

Please remember that on Friday, February 17th, students in Grades 4-8 will need to come dressed in winter attire -please make sure your child comes to school with boots, a hat, gloves and  snow pants,  as they will be spending the afternoon outdoors.

We are very excited to be bringing Carnaval to Carrville Mills and look forward to a fun-filled day of French culture.




Mme. Jarvis, Mme. Wong and Mme. Yehudaiff

SHARE AFRICA -Feb. 6th – March 6th

The student council leadership committee has been discussing the many ways that we can strive to become a good, positive citizen.  Through these conversations, the students’ short term goal is to restore hope for kids around the world.  The committee would like to shine a spotlight on kids that are less fortunate.  While researching, we came across the SHARE Africa organization:

SHARE Africa saves lives, fosters a sustainable future and vastly improves the quality of life of children and adults in African communities, life threatening diseases and abject poverty.

Starting Monday, February 6th – Monday, March 6th a special bin will be placed in the front foyer.  Our mission is to collect the following: picture books, notebooks, colored pens and pencils, clothes and shoes, games, soccer balls, school bags, toiletries (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo etc). Any contribution will be greatly appreciated.

Revised Lunch Recess Schedule

Due to the constantly changing weather, we have modified our lunch hour recess schedule. during the winter months our fields are either covered by slippery ice or mucky mud.  In order to provide students with safe opportunities to play outdoors we have been keeping students on the tarmac during recess. The revised schedule will be the following:

12:25 – 12:45 -Eating Lunch

12:45-1:05 – Primary Indoor Recess / Junior and Intermediates Outdoor Recess

1:05-1:25 – Primary Outdoor Recess / Junior and Intermediates Indoor Recess


Lunch assistants, teachers and educational assistants will continue to supervise students both inside while eating lunch and during the recess times.  We will be monitoring the new schedule and will make adjustments as needed.
