From the Principal’s Desk — Aug 30, 2011

As the days grow shorter, the leaves get redder and the Back To School ads take over we know summer is drawing to a close.  The office is open this week and school starts on Tuesday, September 6th at 8:45 am.


Junior Kindergarten – this is a staggered entry throughout the first week – if you are not sure what day your child starts please call the office.


Senior Kindergarten – teachers will meet students in the Kindergarten yard (northwest corner of the school) at 9:00 am


Grade 1- 3 – teachers will meet students in the west yard (beside Windermere Ave.) at 8:40 am.  Each teacher will have a sign with their name, class and room number.


Grade 4 -6 – teachers will meet students in the east yard (by the field) at 8:40 am.


Grade 7 – 8 – students will proceed directly to the gym at 8:45 am.


Staff will be in the school yard at 8:30 to direct students and parents.


We ask that parents say good bye to their child in the school yard and not follow them into the school.  This is a very confusing day and it is safer to allow your child’s teacher to escort the students into their classroom.


On the first day of school each child will be given a package of information and forms.  Please review this package and sign and return the school forms as soon as possible.


Looking forward to another great school year.
