Dear Parents,

We are all looking forward to seeing you at our Winter Holiday Festival in the Gym on Monday December 18. Led by our own Mr. Judge, music teacher, all Cornish students will participate in several musical performances and recitations; art work will also be displayed and there will be light refreshments available after the program, courtesy of our very generous CCPTO. Please have your child at school by 5 pm so Mr. Judge can have them organized and seated for the program, which will start at 5:30 pm.Students should wear ‘Sunday best’ attire.

Along with this week’s letter, you should also have received:

  • Report cards! Please contact the front office or your child’s homeroom teacher if you did not receive them.
  • Information regarding next Thursday’s Holiday Shop (organized by our CCPTO).
  • Forms for completion if your child is planning to go to the CCBA/Witherell Center in Lebanon for the winter LIFE program of swim lessons, martial arts, yoga and other activities.

The weather is getting colder!  Please make sure your child has the right weight jacket or coat for the day’s temperatures; a pair of gloves or mittens; a hat; and boots.  Once snow has arrived, any student wanting to play in the snow will be required to have snow pants as well as boots, hat, mittens or gloves and jackets.  For their protection, we will not allow students to play outdoors if they do not have appropriate outerwear.  

Several parents have expressed concern to us regarding cars going around vehicles temporarily parked by the gate as they drop off or pick up their children.  If you need to take time to help your child get in and out of the vehicle; assist with coats, lunch boxes and backpacks; or need to come in to the front office to relay information; please park in the lower lot, leave your vehicle and walk up through the side gate.  If your child needs little or no assistance, then pull up as far as possible when you first arrive and, for student safety, please wait for the vehicles in front of you to resume forward motion rather than going around them.
