Please see the attached order form for the SCC Family BBQ and Classroom Walthrough which you should have received yesterday. We would love to see you all there. Order forms and the amount are due by the latest on Friday. No late orders will be accepted since this is a catered event. Face painting and bouncy castle will be available for the students and their siblings. This is a great time for our school family to get together and socialize. I am sure it will be a beautiful day!
Walthrough are a chance for your child to show you their classroom. There will not be any formal presentations by the teachers as they will be helping with the BBQ. This will take place from 5:00 - 5:30 p.m. with the BBQ to follow at 5:30 till 7:00 p.m.
For those students taking part in our Cross Country run at Douglas Park, you can indicate this directly on the order form and we will make sure your orders are ready after the race.
See you all on Wednesday evening.
Come join us on Monday evening at 6:30 p.m. at the school for our first SCC meeting of the school year. Everyone is welcome and your support would be much appreciated.
Happy Labour Day everyone,
Thank you for making our first few days so excellent. Our entire staff worked tirelessly to make our school start a successful one for students and parents. We were all so excited to see the students, hear their stories and adventures from summer, and get started on the learning journey for this year. Please watch those packpacks and binders for information and forms to be filled out and returned this week.
A reminder that our school day starts at 8:53 a.m. and ends at 3:37 p.m. The weather does not look all that favourable for the coming week so we suggest students come with appropriate clothing for possible cold and rainy days. Please take a look at the attached information document called Attendance Matters. This poster outlines the correlation between attendance starting from Pre K to student achievement to high school graduation. Thank you for reading this and sharing it as a family.
While I have your attention, this might be a great time to set-up your account for online payments. You can follow the easy directions after clicking on the Online Payments on the left of the screen. We will be using Online Payments for most transactions requiring payment. Thank you to those who have already signed up, it makes life much simpler for you and our teachers can then keep their focus on much more important matters, such as literacy and numeracy.
Please also look for information regardng Cross Country Running, Debating Club, Band, PAA and other groups. Most sign-up sheets should be available this week in the school for various grade levels.

Hello Students, Parents and Guardians,
We sure hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather and taking advantage of summer holidays. This is just a little reminder that school officially starts for students on Thursday, September 1st at 8:53 a.m. Our kindergarten students will have a staggered start and parents/guardians should have received communication to advise them of the actual start date last spring.
Students will gather on the playground and be directed by staff according to their grade. They will then be taken to their classroom by their new teacher for this year. Busses will run as usual. If you required information from Transporation, please see the post below for their hours and contact information. Do not worry about school supplies as we will be ordering in bulk this year in an effort to save money and time. Students should come to school with a backpack, their indoor shoes and for those students in grades 4 and up, a change of clothes for physical education.
There is still plenty of summer left to enjoy! Get outside, be active and enjoy the freedom. Don't forget to keep on reading daily to challenge your brain and keep learning.
See you soon Mironuck Eagles!
Please see the note below regarding the bulk purchase of school supplies for the next school year. No shopping required, we will notify you of the cost in September 2016. Have a safe and super fun summer!
See the document below for information regarding the summer hours for our transportation department.
