Grade 6 Closing

It is our pleasure to inform all of you about our grade 6 closing here at Donagh Regional.  Guidelines from CPHO  need to be followed and we want to do what we can to make the day enjoyable for the grade 6 students. 
This is what we have planned:

-We will be celebrating on June 26th at 12 noon.
-Each student may be accompanied by two guests (maximum of three people including the student.)  This needs to be respected as we have number restrictions.

-All students and two guests will line up behind the school (3-4 playground area) at a pylon.  Staff will be in the area to instruct you.  When you arrive to the school you can park in the staff parking lot as well as bus parking lot.  When you exit the car go toward the back of the school. 

-Students will enter the Gym by the side door; guests to follow.  This will take place one family at a time.

-Each student’s name will be announced and he/she will proceed to the stage; walk onto the stage; pick up his/her Grade Six Certificate from his/her teacher and exit the stage (guest can take pictures.)   

-On the stage the student can have his/her picture taken with his/her teacher while maintaining social distancing,  if desired.

-The student and guests will exit the Gym. The student may join his classmates in the designated area for a treat and mingle while practicing social distancing (apprx 20-30 min).  Guests will return to their vehicles and wait for their student.

Plan for Student Personal Items/Report Card Pick Up

Hello Parents/Guardians,

We are now able to provide you with student personal items and second term report cards.  Teachers will be in to pack up the items on Tuesday and on Wednesday, May 27th you will be able to come to the school to retrieve the items.

Our plan is to do a drive thru pick up.  When you pull up to the school someone will hand you your child’s items.  If you have 2-3 children in the school we ask that you come during the pick up time for your oldest child.  At that time you will receive all the packages for your children.

Plan:

Wednesday, May 27

9:00 a.m – 11:00 a.m –  KA (Mrs. Collins), KB (Mrs. Dalziel), 1A (Mrs. Doyle), 2Y (Mrs. Myers), 2A (Ms. Duffy), 3A (Ms. Graham)

11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m –  4A (Mrs. Arbing) 4Y (Mr. Knox), 5A (Mrs. Cox), 6Y (Mr. Quinn), 6A (Mr. Hennessey)

 

Have a great weekend,

Jason

Welcome to Kindergarten

May 05, 2020

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Welcome to Kindergarten Program is designed for parents/caregivers and their children who will be entering kindergarten in the 2020-2021 school year. All thirty-seven Public School Branch schools with Kindergarten organize a Welcome to Kindergarten Program for their incoming students. At the Welcome to Kindergarten Session, families were to receive early literacy resources and learn strategies for using these resources with their child at home. The goal of Welcome to Kindergarten is to provide pre-school children with the resources and experiences to begin their formal education with a foundation of literacy nurtured in the home.

The program is developed by an organization called The Learning Partnership and the bag of educational materials was purchased for families by the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning.

Unfortunately, due to COVID 19 and restrictions placed on schools we will be unable to host Welcome to Kindergarten Sessions for families in the schools this year. Your child’s school will be contacting you shortly to make arrangements for you to come to the school pick up the Welcome to Kindergarten Bag. The bag contains books and many other tools that will help you interact with your child and prepare them for entry into kindergarten. We at Welcome to Kindergarten believe that Parents are the Child’s First and Best Teacher!

I would also encourage you to click on the link below for videos that will give you information about the program and how to best use the materials to maximize learning with your child.

Enjoy the Welcome to Kindergarten Bag and have fun with the materials! Stay Safe!

Regards,

Ken Gaudet                                                                                                                                                        Welcome to Kindergarten                                                                                                                                Program Manager
