Change in School Trip Date!

A notice when home today to let parents know that our end-of-year school trips have been changed to Wednesday, June 27th instead of Monday, June 25th.  The weather is forecast to be rainy and cool on Monday. Wednesday is looking to be much better day.   All things remain the same so please ensure that children have what they need for the trip on Wednesday.

Monday will be an in-school day. Please make sure to send lunches as there are no Hotlunches available on Monday.

Thank you to all parents who are still able to chaperone and to PSB Transportation who helped us with this change.

It is well known that children’s reading skills can slide over the summer months if reading does not continue to be a daily or almost daily activity.  It is important to find as many opportunities as possible to have children enjoy books.

The Summerside Rotary Library has wonderful summer reading program for children and teens. The library has many programs to encourage and support the love of reading for all ages. Students will be coming home today with the information today but it is attached here below:

Important Reminders!

Our time is getting short!  We have six school days left with our student so here are some important reminders:

  1. Notices were sent home yesterday to parents who have not yet paid school fees.  Parents can pay through HotLunches or you can pay at the office with cash or a cheque.
  2. There are many unpaid accounts in HotLunches.  Our lunch program is a cost recovery program and lunches that are ordered must be paid for.  Please take care of this ASAP.
  3. Permission forms and money for the school trips are due on Friday.  Children cannot attend unless we have these.  Please ensure they have what they need for Monday’s trip – sunscreen, water, hat, lunch, etc.   Thank you to all the parents who are volunteering on that day – we could not do this without you!

Friday Reminders

Here are some reminders for next week:

  1.  Bike Rodeo forms were sent home last week.  It is not too late for us to send them to the Summerside Police who are organizing this great rodeo on June 30th at the CUP.  It is a great opportunity for kids to practice their bicycling skills, have a snack, and win  prizes.
  2. Don’t forget to return permission forms for our field trips to Sandspit and Shining Waters.  We would like to confirm numbers.
  3. Thank you to all parents who have paid school fees for next year.  The response has been great.  Please keep it coming as teachers do want to purchase these supplies over the summer.

Have a wonderful weekend! The sun has appeared!

There are many great things in there – sweaters, jackets, t-shirts, shorts, pants, water bottles, gym bags, mittens, hats…and they do belong to somebody.

If you are missing something at home, you have your son or daughter have a look or you are welcome to drop by and have a look as well.  We will be giving away any unclaimed items to a clothing collection site, so please check before school finishes on June 27th.

School Fees and Yearbooks

School Supply Fee:
We are now collecting school supply fees for the coming 2018 – 2019 school year. As our parents know, our teachers purchase all the school supplies for their classes, ensuring all students have what they need, as well doing their best to get the best possible prices.  A school agenda will need to be purchased in September.  Student only need to bring indoor shoes, a backpack, and their lunches when school begins.

The cost per student is $40.00 and a receipt will be provided.  Parents can pay by sending money or a cheque  to their child’s teacher or to the office.  As well, a schedule has been set up in HotLunches so parents can pay online if they wish.

We appreciate parents timely attention to this.

Yearbooks:
Our 2017 – 2018 yearbooks have arrived!  They will be going home with students on Tuesday or Wednesday. There are a limited number of copies still available for sale if a student would still like to purchase one.
