September Start Up Info:

The first day of school for the 2018/19 year is Tuesday, September 4, 2018.  

Teachers and their class lists for next year will be posted outside the school by 9:00am on the first day of school.  

The grade level lists will be posted close to the entrance/exit doors for the specific grade.  All staff will be outside at 9:00am to guide students to the correct classroom and welcome students back!

If your child(ren) will be taking the bus to school this year, please have them take the bus on the first day and meet them at the school.  This will allow them and the bus driver to meet and confirm the correct bus for the year.

Students are asked to wear the colour designated to their grade, as this will help to them to meet up with their peers:

SK = Red

Gr. 1 = Purple

Gr. 2= Yellow

Gr. 3 = Orange

Gr. 4 = Green

Gr. 5 = White

Gr. 6 = Blue

Junior kindergarten students will have visits scheduled on September 4th and 5th.  Parents of JK students received a letter in July indicating their child’s teacher, interview time, and staggered entry date.

Day 1 - September 4, 2018:  Orientation visits for all JK children registered in the Extended Day Program (EDP).  Children come to school with their parents for their scheduled visit and then go home with parents.  They return to school the next day to begin their school year.  All SK students attend class.

Day 2 - September 5, 2018:  JK students who have already had their orientation visit and are enrolled in EDP, return to school today and join in with the SK students.  Orientation visits continue with the rest of the families.  These children come to school with their parents for their scheduled visit and then go home with their parents.  They return the next day to begin their school year.

Day 3 - September 6, 2018:  ALL students, JK and SK are in class.
