5-9 Christmas Concert – Wednesday, December 11th at the Celtic Performing Arts Centre (College of Piping)
Gr. 5-9 Christmas Concert
Ticket request forms are going home with students Nov. 6-7th. These are due back November 22nd. Parents can request up to 3 tickets on this form. Once the due date has passed, the leftover tickets will be placed in the office on a first come first served basis. There may be a few tickets left for at-the-door purchase the evening of the concert but we hope everyone will take advantage of getting advance tickets to ensure you have enough tickets for your family members. Please contact Mrs. Mullen at the school if you have any questions! crmullen@edu.pe.ca
The concert will begin at 6:30 PM that evening but the students will need to be dropped off a little bit earlier than that to get ready. This exact time will be announced.
Fundraising
We are wrapping up our first Band Fundraiser (ADL Cheese) this week – orders due on November 8th. Please stay tuned for information on our next fundraiser. There will be a bake sale held at the Christmas Concert in the lobby of the Celtic Performing Arts Centre. Students are asked to bring $5.00 for baking supplies to contribute to this. Two of our band parents have volunteered to do the baking for this sale with the $5.00 contributions that the students are bringing in. Please have this $5.00 handed in by November 22nd at the latest.
A reminder that this year we will not be keeping extra funds raised by a student in their name for the following year. Try to fundraise the appropriate amount for your child’s amount owing (this amount is usually determined officially in the Winter) or if a student fundraises extra, it will stay in the overall fund to benefit the group.

School Therapy Occupational Therapy (OT) Program

Hi everyone! My name is Anne-Marie Peters and I am an OT with over 12 years of experience working with children.  I am very excited to be working at your child’s school for the 2019- 2020 school year.  I will be at Miscouche Consolidated every second Monday.

Occupational Therapists work with children of all ages and know a lot about children’s development in the areas of: fine motor, gross motor and visual motor, sensory processing and environmental set-up.  The focus of the service will be working together with classroom teachers and school staff in promoting children’s motor and sensory development to assist children in achieving their learning goals and successfully participating in school.  I will be spending time in classrooms, gym and music, the playground and in small group settings offering guidance, suggestions and tips.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at aspeters@ihis.org.  I look forward to a wonderful year working together with school staff, students and you as parents!

Anne-Marie Peters, OT Reg(PEI)                                                                                                          Occupational Therapist, School Therapy OT Program
