Rainbow Fish Musical Presentation
On November 22nd, the kindergarten to grade two students are travelling to the Performing Arts Centre to enjoy Rainbow Fish!


Beauty and the Beast: The Musical on December 6th
On Friday, December 6th, the students at Martha Cullimore (Grades 3 through 8) are invited to attend the performance of "Beauty and the Beast" at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, in Niagara Falls. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience the performing arts at a local venue. The show begins at 10:30 a.m. and is approximately 135 minutes in length, including one intermission.

Staying Healthy This Season
Although we usually encourage children to share, there is one thing that we’d prefer that doesn’t get passed around this year - germs! While being back at school gives children more opportunity to interact with each other and play together, there are some simple steps we can all take to help each other avoid coughs, colds and more serious types of infections.
Wash those hands! We recommend that students, and even parents, wash their hands with soap and water regularly. If there isn’t a sink nearby, using a good hand sanitizer should do the trick.
Cover all coughs and sneezes. This will cut down on the number of icky things floating around in the air and landing on surfaces, making it less likely that children will breathe them in or touch them. If you have to cough or sneeze, do it into a tissue or onto your upper sleeve.
If you’re sick, stay home. Although it’s important to be in class, don’t be a superhero. Take some time, feel better and then come back when you’re healthy, alert and ready to learn!
WHEN TO KEEP YOUR CHILD AT HOME
Please keep your child at home and away from others if he or she has any of these symptoms: fever, diarrhea, vomiting, rash, frequent coughing or sneezing, yellow or green discharge from the nose, ears, or eyes, sore throat.

December 12th Bring-A-Mug Hot Chocolate Social and Open House
We are planning on having a simple Christmas celebration open house where families come, bring their mugs to fill with hot chocolate, enjoy some baked goods from the bake sale, and spend quality time participating in some festive activities.
o Relax and enjoy musical selections at the Cookie Café. Students will present special poems, instrumental music and songs. Kindergarten students will kick off
the line up of talent. A program of presentation times will be published closer to the event.
o Visit the North Pole Bakery to decorate sugar cookies
o Visit the Reindeer Workshop to make reindeer candy cane crafts
o Make beautiful giant snowflakes in the Winter Wonderland Room
o Holiday Math & STEM Challenge Room
o Visit Rudolph’s Robotics Barn
o Junior and intermediate students can take on the Great Christmas Escape
Challenge in one of our Escape Rooms! Schedule to be announced.
Many thanks to our School Advisory and Council and Martha Cullimore Staff for organizing this event!
