Birchwood, First Day

Hello,

Tomorrow is the big day! We wanted to share some information to make the first day as smooth as possible.

If you choose to drop off your student, please drop and go along the side walk adjacent to the teacher parking lot. Please do not enter the parking lot or the bus lane. Staff and Charlottetown Police Services will be assisting.

Student’s entering grade seven will proceed through the cafeteria or the front doors where they will be welcomed by staff and organized into homerooms.

Student’s entering grades eight and nine will enter using the gym entrance and proceed to the gymnasium where they will also meet their homeroom teacher and proceed to their classrooms.

The cafeteria will be open to purchase lunch. Specials will be posted on our website in the coming days but several options will be available.

We will also be accepting bank E-transfers for online payments this year. We feel this system will be much easier for families. Student fees for individual student’s are $35 for 1 and $45 for families.
When e-Transfering use birchwood@edu.pe.ca
please include:
Students first & last name.
Grade & Homeroom
What you are paying for. Eg. School fee, soccer fee, etc.
There is no password needed as the e-transfer goes directly into our bank account.

We will be updating our web page and several important documents will be sent home with your child in the coming days.

We are looking forward to a great year,

BW Staff
