Have a wonderful Spring Break : )

FYIs

  • Communicating Student Learning- It was wonderful to see so many families at yesterday's parent-teacher interviews.  Thank you for coming!
  • Waste Disposal- We are having some challenges with our new waste disposal system in that food product is being placed in each of the different recyclable bins, contaminating the materials.  When we return from Spring Break, all classes will follow the pack in, pack out model with lunch kits. Instruction will start with organics and will build from there as we become proficient in sorting.
  • Intensive Core French (ICF)- Calling all Grade 5 parents!  Our ICF Parent Info session is happening right after Spring Break.  It'll be at 5:30 pm in the school library on Tuesday, April 2nd.  Registration opens the following morning at 7:45am.
  • Grade 6 Photo- Please see the attached information for ordering info for the Grade 6 photo

    From the Office
  • Report Cards and Envelopes- The report card and envelope contents are yours to keep.  Please return the envelope with your child to the school at your earliest convenience as we will be reusing them for final term.
  • Kindergarten registration- For staffing and class configuration reasons it is important that we have accurate numbers for our incoming Kindergartens.  If you happen to know anyone with a Kindergarten aged child in our catchment that has not yet registered, please encourage them to do so as soon as possible.
