Our Superwalker program is in full-swing! Students who walk, or who ride their bike or scooter to school can collect a stamp from any of our Senior Superwalkers (students on the tarmac in the bright green shirts and/or orange vests) when they arrive to school in the morning. All students are invited to participate in our Wednesday Walking Club at lunch recess, where they can collect 2 stamps at once for their participation. It is fabulous to see so many students participating enthusiastically already! This year, with each card completed, students can come down to the Green Gym at any morning recess to collect a charm. Once a student has completed 5 cards, their picture will go up on our Superwalker Wall, and they will be invited to a year-end party in June. Keep moving Plum Tree!
Our Black and Orange Day will take place on Tuesday, October 31st. Students are welcome to wear their Hallowe’een costumes or black and orange if they choose. We look forward to seeing your creative costume ideas! The traditional parade will take place in the afternoon, allowing students to share their costumes with each other. An alternate space with activities will be provided for students who are not participating in the parade. More details will follow in a letter.
