Hello Stratford Elementary Families,
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to sell yearbooks this year. This was not possible last year, as you remember that students did not return after March Break. It was very disappointing for our staff and students. Our committee has been working very hard with collecting pictures and organizing each of our assigned pages. It takes a long time to get each of the class’ pages just right. It is going to be a fantastic yearbook this year with lots of colorful pages and inspirational quotes. We are hoping that you are going to support SES this year by purchasing a 2020-2021 yearbook so that your child will be able to remember this extraordinary school year. Yearbooks are being pre sold for $25 and will remain on sale until April 21st, 2021. We will contact you in June when the yearbooks arrive. Simply log onto the Lifetouch website and order your yearbook online. ybpay.lifetouch.ca You will be prompted to enter our school code. It is 11542621. Don’t miss out on your opportunity!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Shellie Hughes.

It has come to our attention that the speed of the two way traffic on Glen Stewart Drive between 2:20 and 2:40 on the school days is dangerous. We are concerned with students crossing Glen Steward Drive while parents wait in their cars.
Please help us keep your child safe by walking to the front area of the school close to the Canadian flag pole to safely pick up your child.
We know that your child’s safety is your number on concern as it is ours.
Thanks for helping out! Sincerely,
Janet Cameron Principal
