Student Absences

We are aware that there have been a number of late-arrival calls going out in error. We apologize for the inconvenience that this causes and we are taking steps to ensure that this does not happen. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

The Dance-a-thon is on February 9!

Palmerston raises money only three times a year: the blowout extravaganza of Mayfest, everybody’s favorite Wednesday activity Pizza Lunch and the shake-off-the-winter-blues dance party called Dance-a-thon.

The kids love it, and the funds that your children and you raise go directly towards enriching their educational experience at Palmerston.


  • 1st place: The class who raises the most money gets a pizza party in their classroom.
  • 2nd place: The class who raises the second most money gets a classroom party.
  • New this year: Participation prize: All classes that have over 90% participation in the fundraising will get an outdoor disco recess!

The Dance-a-thon pledge forms have already gone home, so check the backpacks. (If forms got lost, kids can get new ones in the office.)

Please help your children ask neighbours and family members to pledge and give what you can. Take the form to work or to a family get-together. There are many people who want to help your kid have a great school experience and this is one way they can.

Thank you in advance for us helping make this event a great success!
