Bondar Update (November 13, 2020)
Posted on 11/13/2020

Dear Bondarians,

Although this week’s weather didn’t always look like it, winter is coming and we know that the snow and cold weather will soon be here.  At this point in the year we would like to give some winter updates to our procedures.

Winter Clothing / Indoor Shoes

As we move into winter, please ensure that your child(ren) is dressed for the weather of the day; in layers if possible. Also, please ensure your child(ren) has indoor shoes at school, and winter boots for outside. When students do not have indoor shoes, they cannot participate in indoor Physical Education, and the dripping snow and slush creates unsafe conditions in classrooms. Please note that indoor shoes are also required for students in Grade 7 and 8. 

Bondar Wear

Show your spirit!  Our School Council will be organizing Bondar wear for our students and staff this year.  An order form will be sent home today, Friday November 13th.  In order for the clothing to arrive before our winter break we ask that all orders be in on or before Wednesday November 25th.  Cash (exact amount - no change will be given) or cheque payable to Roberta Bondar School Council.

Interview Reminders

We will have interviews (virtual/telephone) on November 26th for teachers to connect with families and discuss student progress.  Due to limited time frames the interview times for that evening will be for families where the teacher has requested an interview.  If you would like to discuss your child’s progress, and their teacher has not asked for an interview please contact the teacher to set up an appointment on a different date/time.  A reminder that families are always welcome to request a meeting with their child’s teacher throughout the school year.  

Please continue to check our school website for parent resources, community messages, and our calendar at

Stay safe and be well, 

Deb Woods & Jeff Griesbach
