Dear students and parents,

Train for Two - Play

UMCA is happy to invite its grades 3-7 students to the play “Train for Two” on Wednesday, November 6. We will leave school at 10:00am and will be back by 1:30pm. No need to bring lunch as we will arrive to school on time for lunch, but please bring snack. On this day please wear your blue UMCA sweatshirt.

Public Skating

Please be reminded that this coming Friday, November 8th, grades 1-7 are having Public Skating.

Don't forget to bring your skating equipment (we would like to remind you once again that bicycle's helmet is not sufficient and you need skating helmet, for your own safety). Don’t forget to bring gloves and snow pants.  Parents who want to volunteer and help our students dress up and skates are more than welcome to join.

Parent – Teacher Interview

Please be reminded that on Friday, November 15th the school will run a parent teacher interview day. Our teachers will be available throughout the day to speak with each parent individually about the student and their academic achievements. Parents who didn’t book their time yet, please see Ms. Ariela at the front desk.
