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.
