Friday, Oct. 31 – Grade 8 & 9 Students

Due to circumstances beyond our control, our Challenging Needs and Grade 7 students who already submitted permission and payment only are able to attend the showing of The Addams Family on the morning of Friday, October 31, 2014. Unfortunately the Arts and Culture Centre overbooked this performance and we were bumped from our booked seats.book_life

Due to this unfortunate event, we have arranged to send our Grade 8 and 9 students to go to the Avalon Mall Cineplex to watch the movie The Book of Life (rated G). There will be no extra charge to those who have already paid for The Addams Family, you need only return the below permission slip approving of the change in event by tomorrow, Wednesday, October 29th. If you wish to attend the movie but did not submit a payment for The Addams Family, you must submit $12 with the permission below to your homeroom teacher by tomorrow, Wednesday, October 29th. Please note that there will not be any concession stands open at this time and only change is accepted in the theatres’ vending machines. We apologize for any inconvenience this change in plans may have caused.

“You’re not concerned about the way we are, in my mind my dreams are real. Now you’re concerned about the way I feel, tonight, I’m a rock ‘n’ roll star.” ~Oasis

BJH – Kids Eat Smart Program

Beaconsfield Junior High has been offering a KSE Breakfast Program since 2007. Already this year, we have seen an increase in the use of our program, which is offered every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and made possible by the volunteer efforts of staff, parents and students.

With BJH’s Kids Eat Smart Club, students can enjoy a variety of healthy foods such as bagels, yogurt, cheese, milk, juice and fruit. Whether they participate once a week, once a month or every day it’s offered, the Club is open to any child that missed breakfast, couldn’t eat before their bus ride, or enjoys socializing and eating with their friends.

If you are able to make a donation of funds or of product (Milk, juice, cheese strings, yogurt tubes, bagels, cheese whiz, margarine or jam), the impact is doubled as Kids Eat Smart will match any donation!

Thank you. We greatly appreciate your support. Please contact Katherine Bussey, Breakfast Club Coordinator at katherinebussey@nlesd.ca with any questions.
