School Council Meeting
Wednesday, September 21st (6:45 pm) – we are looking for parents who wish to serve on this year’s council.
FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
The 2010 – 2011 school year officially started on Tuesday. Thank you to all the parents for their patience while we sorted everyone out and got students settled in the classrooms. Parents are reminded to drop their child(ren) off in the playground with their teacher and not escort them into the school. This keeps our hallways clear and safe for all of our students.
Your child would have brought home a package with important school information and forms. Please ensure the forms are completed, signed and returned as soon as possible.
