There has been a change to the distribution date for report cards for students in grades 1-8, and students in year 2 of the Kindergarten program. Elementary report cards will now be released on February 22, 2017. The change in dates was necessary due to District-wide network issues that delayed the production of report cards. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
Valentine's Day Cards
Both Kinder classes sent home a letter about Valentine's Day cards with a class list. Families can chose whether or not they want to participate. Some students have already made their mailbox, others will be making them early this week. The making and delivery of the cards involves a lot of early literacy skills like name writing, reading familiar words (the names of their classmates) and letter recognition. As you can imagine, the logistics take time as there are 30 students who for the most part hand out 30 cards. Families are welcome to send in the cards starting Thursday, Feb.9th and ending Tuesday, Feb.14th.
Playdough sign up
Play dough continues to be a popular sensory centre. Thank-you to families who have made play dough for their child's class. We are currently looking for more play dough volunteers in hopes of filling the calendar up from now until March break. Please send a note in your child's communication book or express your interest at drop off/pick up. Thanks!
It is not uncommon for families to head south or go on ski vacations at this time of year. You lucky ducks! The Kinder team wishes they could do the same!
Please let us know of any upcoming trips so that we can input them into our attendance system. Families who are vacationing for more than a month are demitted from our register and are required to re-register upon their return. This is board policy and requirement. Thanks for understanding!
