Hello Grade One Families!
Welcome to a new school year! I feel very blessed to once again find myself at the beginning of a school year filled with opportunities to guide the students as they grow spiritually, emotionally, and academically. Following the Archdiocesan theme "Live the Joy of the Gospel", I hope that this year will be filled with joy, learning, laughter and wonderful memory-making moments for your children.
If you ordered school supplies from Edu-Pac, they have arrived and the students will bring them home on the first day of school. Please follow the instructions for labelling and organizating the supplies (to be found on the coloured sheet inside the Edu-Pac bag). Labelled school supplies must be returned to school on Wednesday September 3.
Please check the blog on Tuesday evening for a blog entry which will include many important pieces of information for the beginning of the school year.
Just a reminder that school begins at 9:00am on Tuesday September 2 and dismissal is at 11:00am. Grade One students are dismissed through the glass doors in the covered area on the south side of the school. Please let your child know who will be picking them up and where you (or the alternate pick-up person) will be waiting because the pick-up area can be very overwhelming for the younger students. It is very helpful if the Grade One students have a clear "pick-up plan" with their family. I will accompany the Grade One students outside to the covered area for at least the first week of school and there is always a staff member assigned to after school supervision.
If you have any questions please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a wonderful long weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!
