Canada's Greatest Music Class Contest

Kindergarten students and Grades 4,5 and 6 students recently participated in a music contest organized by CBC music. Students learned a song entitled, Crabbuckit, by a Canadian artist named K-OS. They recorded a video of themselves performing the song and submitted it, along with a group picture, to CBC music. Thank you to all the teachers who helped out with this project. Thank you to all the students who participated in this excited project. Mme Léger is very proud!

School Travel Planning

2015-16 will be the third year that Queen Elizabeth PS has had a school travel planning committee to look at safe routes to school. Students are encouraged to walk or bike to school as much as possible. There is a particular focus on ways to increase safety while travelling to and from school. In the near future, safe travel practices around Queen Elizabeth will be reinforced by the Ottawa Police Service. Thank you for making safe choices when travelling to school.

Drop off and Pick up Zones

- For safety reasons we ask that you please do not enter the parking lot with your car.
The probability of an accident is too high with so many children around and with drivers backing up in such a tight space. Please pull up to the curb beside the school, outside of the Bus Zone, to drop your children off in the morning. Thank you for your co-operation
