Here are some important reminders for the coming week:

1.  Please make sure HotLunches orders are in by Sunday night September 15th at midnight.  The menu covers the dates of September 16th to September 27th. We are still looking to a Wednesday option.

2. Our Greenfield Family Picnic is on Wednesday, September 18th – 4:30 to 6:30.  Be sure to send in your ticket money by Tuesday!

3. We will be celebrating International Day of Peace on Thursday with our annual school picture. Watch for it to be posted. It is always a good one!

Many volunteers are needed to make the picnic a success. If you can help in any way, please contact Kim Gaudet at 902-303-9569.

Notes for this Week!

We had two great days last week to start our school year.  Hurricane Dorian prevented us from our start today but here are important notes for parents for the coming week:

  1.  Meet the Teacher will be this week Wednesday, September 11 – 6:00 to 7:00. We will begin in the gym and parents will move to classrooms to meet with individual classroom teachers after greetings from the Principal Sandra Jay, Home and School, and the Greenfield Breakfast Program.
  2. HotLunches will begin on Monday, September 16th.  All families must sign up for the new school year as students are in different classes with new teachers.  Remember the school code is: GFHL  Please do this before Sunday, September 15th at midnight.  This menu will run from Monday, September 16th to Friday, September 27th. We do not have a menu option for Wednesdays as yet but any suggestions parents may have are welcome. Please let Mrs. Jay know.
  3. A package of yellow papers was sent home last week with important information for parents.  If you did not receive it, here it is:

Back to School – First Day Plan!

Tomorrow is the big day!

Doors open at 8:30 so parents should not bring their children to school much before that time as everyone will be outdoors.

When the doors open:

  • Kindergarten teachers will meet their students in the lobby.

  • Grade 1 students should go to the cafeteria to meet their teachers.

  • All other students (Grades 2 to 6) will go to the gym.  They should go to the number on the wall that matches the grade they are in.  Their teachers will be there and will take them to their classrooms.

    As hard as it may be, parents must say good bye at the door or in the lobby.  There would be just too many people in our classes if we allowed parents to go to classrooms and too many strangers to all our students.

    See you tomorrow!

Getting Ready…

Hello to all our new and returning students and parents!

Staff at Greenfield Elementary are busy getting ready for all our students to arrive on Thursday, September 5th for the first day of the new school year.  Our doors open at 8:30 so students should not be here much before that time.  At a later date when our Breakfast Program is operating, the doors will open sooner.  Here is our Bell Schedule:

BellTimes2019-2020

 Much information will be coming home in the early days. We do want all our students to be here on September 5th, so if parents are unsure what bus their child should take and at what time, you can check online at:

Learn to Ride a Bicycle!

              FREE LEARN HOW TO RIDE A TWO-WHEEL BICYCLE EVENT

On Saturday, June 29th you are invited to stop by the Greenfield parking lot anytime between 8:30 am and 10:30 am to learn how to ride a two-wheel bicycle.

Ken Trenholm has taught over 250 people to transition from training wheels to two wheels since 2009. To make this experience as stress-free as possible, Ken is requesting if the bicycles can come prepared: pedals and training wheels off, tires pumped up to their max, and seat raised/lowered so both the rider’s feet are flat on the ground. If the caregiver is unable to do so, Ken will gladly help with this process.

This Learn to Ride event is open to the whole community so feel free to bring a friend. For those interested, $10 tickets will be sold on a baby barn and/or a WestJet trip to help support the U15 PEIFC soccer team traveling to Nationals in Edmonton this October.

Two Important Notices!

Our school year is quickly coming to an end!

Our Grade 6 students had a wonderful day at Camp Triumph yesterday. We are looking forward to our trip to Sandspit and Shining Waters on Monday with our Grades K to 5. The weather is forecast to be sunny with clouds but may be a bit cooler. Children should bring a sweater or jacket.

Important Note 1:
It is our Breakfast Program’s last day tomorrow. We have two great coordinators for the Breakfast Program, Kim Gaudet and Crystal O’Keefe, as well as many dedicated volunteers. A BIG THANK YOU to them for providing such a wonderful program for our students.

As there will be no breakfast program next week, children will have to have breakfast at home.  As well, they should not be dropped off before 8:30 unless they come on a bus.

Important Notice 2:
The forecast is for very rainy weather tomorrow. As the Consolidated Credit Union was to barbecue for us, we had to come up with a Plan B.  The CCU will be buying a slice of pizza from Domino’s for all students as well as providing a drink.  We will see that children who are gluten-free have what they like. Any children who do not want pizza will have to bring a lunch.  Thank you to the Consolidated Credit Union for their generosity!

Thank you to all parents who have paid the school supply fee. We appreciate this very much.  If you have not paid yet there are still a few days left to do this.
