Welcome to Grade Four

Dear Grade Four Families,

I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer!  I’m looking forward to seeing the students on Thursday, September 10! I pray that this year is filled with new adventures, new friendships, and new experiences.  Even though there’ll be a lot of changes and modifications to our school routine due to Covid-19, let’s work together to make this a successful and enjoyable year for all of us!

Top 5 reasons why the first day of school will be an exciting day:

  1. They are coming upstairs to the intermediate grades
  2. They can reconnect with their friends
  3. They get to see all their teachers again
  4. They will be doing some fun activities in class
  5. You finally get to send them back to school again…FREEDOM for you! (Haha)

Here are the reminders for the week:

Thursday

  • Print out and fill out the Daily Health Assessment Form and make sure your child brings it to school today! 
  • Students must arrive to school wearing a mask
  • Morning drop off will occur over two time slots. Families will arrive according to last name:
    A to J – between 8:30 am and 8:45 am
    K to Z – between 8:45 am to 9:00 am
  • Bring a recess snack, lunch, and water bottle (please remember that we are a nut-free school)
  • Pick up schedule will follow the same pattern:
    A to J – between 2:45 and 3:00 pm
    K to Z – between 3:00 to 3:15 pm

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Margaret Stefirta and June Naval for accepting the role as the Grade 4 Homeroom parents. I appreciate all the extra help they will be providing me this year.

If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please make an appointment to see me or email me at gimoo@stpaulschool.ca

I look forward to working with you and your child this year!

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Imoo
