If your child has not brought home a permission slip for this trip yet, you can find one by clicking the link below. Please ensure this gets back to the school by the morning of Wednesday February 15th!
Thanks so much!

Until Monday, January 23rd, the Government of Saskatchewan is inviting feedback concerning PreK-12 education in Saskatchewan. This is in response to the Perrins Report, a set of possible recommendations about the future of PreK-12 education in Saskatchewan, which was released on December 21, 2016. Prairie Spirit School Division has produced some speaking points that will be helpful in informing you of some of the issues facing PSSD and how the options in the Perrins Report may affect PSSD. Please read the following attachment:

The Colonsay School SADD Chapter will be doing a “Don’t Get Smashed” fundraiser on Tuesday, November 1 at lunchtime. Students will be able to pay $1 per hit to smash a pumpkin with a baseball bat. This fundraiser is aimed at bringing awareness to the effects of destructive decisions and will ensure students think before they act, thus empowering them to make smart, informed decisions. If anyone has pumpkins (carved or not) that you would be willing to donate to our fundraiser, please drop them off at the school the morning of Tuesday, November 1st.
Thank you for your continued support.
