New School Year 2016-2017

Back to school English Rentree

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!


School Supply List for 2016-2017

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!

Speech and Hearing Month

Ears are for Reading Too!

May is Speech and Hearing Month in Canada.  Talking, reading, and playing with your child daily will promote healthy speech.  These simple but important daily activities also help your child become a reader because oral language is the foundation of literacy. Children need strong vocabularies to help them understand what they read. Children need to learn how to rhyme and hear the individual sounds in words before they can learn to spell and read simple words.

Adequate hearing is necessary for the development of speech and language and important for learning at school. Your child can’t learn what they can’t hear! Delays in speech and language may be an indication that your child has a hearing problem.  However, a mild hearing loss can easily go undetected and lead to delays in reading and school achievement. The ear is the “doorway” to the brain for sound. Hearing loss of any type blocks that doorway, preventing sound from reaching the brain. Ear infections are common in young children and can impact hearing and therefore slow the development of speech, language, and early literacy skills.

One way to help your child’s reading skills develop, is to have your child’s hearing checked.  Speak well. Hear well. Live well.  

Families with questions or concerns about their child’s speech and language are encouraged to contact the Speech-Language Pathologist through Albert Community School.
