Indoor Shoes, Extra Clothes, Note Totes and any remaining library books - pack them, in backpacks this weekend!
Don't forget to send to school your child's indoor school shoes, a zip lock with a set of extra clothes (shirt, pants/leggings, underwear & socks - label everything! Even the underwear :) and their Note Tote. There was no exchange on the last week of school prior to the holidays but there are still some library books that have yet to be returned. Please return them on the 1st day back as Monday is library day!
Back to School Woes
It is not uncommon after a 2 week break for your Kinder to have some feelings about going back to school. Some will be bubbling over with excitement to see their friends and educators, some will be grumpy over that 8am start time. Take it easy, communicate with the Kinder team at drop off or via Remind if they had a rough go in the morning and rest assured that by week 2 they will be back in the swing of things.
OCDSB Kindergarten Registration - Jan.22nd-26th, Hilson's Info Night Jan.18th - Time 6pm
Hard to believe that we are already planning for the 2018-2019 school year but early registration greatly helps in school organization. Families with younger siblings that are heading to Kindergarten in September are encouraged to register their child during the week of Jan.22nd. The Kinder team will be hosting their Kindergarten Info session the evening of Thursday, January 18th at 6pm for families NEW to Kindergarten. Please spread the word to any and all friends and family you may have that are looking to register their child for Kindergarten. Year 1 (JK) and Year 2 (SK) students welcome!
