Christmas Parade
The spirit of Christmas was present on Saturday Nov. 25 as the Heroes’ choir and band sang and played through the streets of Cowansville in the Christmas Parade. A very big
thank you to Transport SN for sharing the stage with Heroes’ and providing a float for the students to ride on. Also, another big thank you to parents especially Manuelle Pellicier,Barbara Glover and Melissa Rauzon as well as teachers Michele Beaulne and Laura Barr.

The students rocked! Well done everyone!

Outdoor Winter Wear
Please send your child prepared for winter weather every day. Weather changes happen quickly and I have seen many students running around outside with no winter boots or
mittens on snowy, cold days. Dollar store gloves are thin, and get wet quickly and then arehard to put on. A good pair of mittens with your child’s name or initials marked on them
would be a good investment.
Heroes’ policy is to send students outside properly dressed. However, if a student is
missing clothing from home or has managed to get outside poorly dressed, then he/she isstuck like that for the duration of the recess. A warmly dressed child is generally a happy
child. Thanks for your help with this.

Lost and Found
At school, we hold onto lost sweaters, coats, hats, mittens, gym clothes and lunch boxes for about a month. If they haven’t been claimed after a month, they are donated to the Ste.Therese clothing sale on Tuesdays in Cowansville.
Please label your child’s clothing if they have a habit of losing things.
