September 12th – 16th

Welcome to Kindergarten at St. Paul School!

We had a wonderful first week of school and enjoyed meeting all our new students in Kindergarten! In the first week of Gradual Entry, the children met their new friends, explored their new classroom, and learned how to play safely on the playground! We look forward to the second week of Gradual Entry together, where the children will get to know their friends even better and begin to familiarize themselves with our classroom and school routines.

Friendly Reminders:

Snack: Please send a nutritious snack (such as fruit or vegetables) as well as a reusable water bottle (please do NOT pack juice boxes). Please also ensure that your child is comfortable opening any containers you send and that everything is labeled.

  • Allergies: Please do NOT include seafood, peanuts, or any kind of nut as we do have children with severe allergies at our school.

Label: Please label everything you send to school with your child, especially their school sweater. All children in the school have the same two styles of sweater. If your child has misplaced his/her sweater, please let us know and we will check the classroom and your child’s classmates. We also have a Lost and Found located outside of the school office.

Shoes: Unless your child is able to tie their own laces, please ensure that their school shoes and runners for gym have a Velcro closure.

ClassDojo Electronic Invitations: have been sent to join our Kindergarten 2022-2023 class, a communication app where we will be posting photos and messages throughout the school year of your child’s classroom experiences. Please use the notice with the code to access and you can share in your child’s learning! And let us know if you did not receive an invitation

Cloth bags: have been sent home with your child today to be decorated and brought back to school by September 17th. This bag will stay at school and will hold your child’s gym shoes. If your child did not take a bag home, please let us know. Special thanks to a fellow parishioner, Mrs. Tinson for making the bags!

Extra items: A gentle reminder to please gather and collect the needed items for the school year. The whole list can be found on last week’s blog. Please have all items clearly labelled and brought by Friday, September 16th. 

Photo Day: Photo day is on Monday, September 13th. Please make sure your children have the school sweater and best smile ready! 😄

  • Group A (next week’s afternoon group): We will be taking our photos at around 9:20 am – it is hard to give an exact time as it is dependent on the photographer. If you are unable to bring your child, there will be a photo retake day on October 18th where they can take their photo!

Pick-Up and Drop-Off: For the safety of the children, this will always be at the ramp leading to the Kindergarten door. Also, please remember to cross at the crosswalk when crossing the front parking lot.

Absentee Notes: If your child is sick or absent, please email your absentee notice directly to both classroom teachers AND the school office at

Blog: Please subscribe to our Kindergarten blog and check the school webpage often for important information and updates.

Walkathon: Our annual school Walkathon is on Thursday, September 29th. The Walkathon raises money for future technology, the music program, and sports equipment. Please continue to raise pledges for our school!
