Thank you to those parents who expressed an interest in joining the School Council. Our initial meeting for the 2014/15 school year will occur on Tuesday, 21 Oct from 6:30 – 8:00pm in the school community room. Child care is available should you need to bring along a little one.
A draft agenda will be sent out a couple of days prior to the meeting.
Please note, we am in the process of recruiting a new chair. Interested parents are can contact the outgoing chair at [email protected] or speak to Mr. Carter.
The October 2014 newsletter will be posted on the school site over the next few days. Please look for the following featues:
- The key message about our provincial scores and school improvement plan
- Keep the calendar handy for school wide events
- October 10th school yard clean up
- Kiss and ride etiquette
- General information from the school board
I cannot emphasise enough the importance of checking in on the web site fequently. It is truly a portal to a wealth of information and communication.
Please note the following information items.
We have increased slightly over last year in the number of students enrolled at the school. As a result, we will not need to make any changes in the school organization.
We will however, be making some staffing changes due to system needs. Our 6/7 class will have a full contract teacher assigned to it. Please welcome Mrs. Crystal Manuel as the new teacher to the class. Many thanks to Mr. Snell for getting the class set up for a great start.
Please welcome Mrs. Jessica Walker as the SERT and Learning Center teacher. We look forward to working with you in the service of our students.
Don’t forget that we are hosting a “Meet the Teacher” night on September 25th from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. Your child will be introducing their parents to the teacher and then possibly a tour of the classroom and school.
Please be sure to visit the School Council table on the 25th where you are able sign on and or pick up a volunteer package. For those new to the school we provide forms to expedite a CRC and for returning volunteers a declaration form to comtinue your status as a registered volunteer.
We will be trying out a fundraiser at the open house. A “Tea-rific” table will be available where you might want to order some regular and specialty teas. With the right amount of interest this may turn into one of our regular fundraising ventures.
Information about ordering the milk and school lunch program will come to you very soon.
It is hard to believe that October is less that 2 weeks away!
Hello everyone and welcome to the 2014/15 school year. We have a few reminders as well as some announcements.
On the first day of school we will congregate in the gym after the first bell. Teachers will have class lists and will be situated around the perimeter of the gym. After everone has found their teacher and classmates we will dismiss to the classrooms.
As per Board direction we will be using the Safe Welcome system right away. Doors will be locked at 9:30 AM and unlocked at 3:15 PM. During the day use the monitor/door bell to gain entry. We all know that this is an added safety feature for everyone in the building.
An information package will go home on Thursday of the first week. It will include a board callendar and forms that need to be sent back to the school right away. Check the Simcoe County School Board web site for a wealth of current information. The school site will be updated as well through the first few weeks to reflect staff changes.
