All teachers and staff would like to welcome all new and returning students for their first day of the school year. We have been working hard to get everything ready for our students and we have a beautiful clean school, thanks to the effort of our custodian staff.
We have decided to change our first day process this year to allow for an easier transition to new classrooms.
Our children in kindergarten will meet their teachers in the lobby and proceed with their parents to their classrooms.
Our students in Grades 1 to 6 will all proceed to the gym. In the gym, numbers will be posted for each grade. Students will meet their teacher there. At 8:30 teachers will take their students to their classroom area to begin the day. Parents can say goodbye in the gym and carry on with their day to allow teaching to begin.
We are hoping this new process will address some of the first day congestion and confusion.
As well, we hope all parents who bring their children to school will take great care in the parking lot as it is a day when there are many vehicles coming and going.
