Lost and Found
On April 20, 2015 Pine Street will be hosting a SPELL-A-THON as an academic fundraiser for students in Grades K-6 which will give the students the opportunity to show off their spelling skills and earn pledges for their school at the same time.
Students will be asked to spell words appropriate for their grade level. SPELL-A-THON proceeds will be used to purchase literacy kits and new technology for the school. All students participating will be eligible to earn a number of incentive prizes on the amount of pledges they collect.
Rewards include a pizza party for the class from each grade level with the highest pledges returned and highest pledge donations, a raffle to be Principal for the day, and many other great prizes. The top earner for the school will win the Grand Prize – an iPad mini. All students will be rewarded with additional resources in their classroom and technology enhancements in the school.

Pine Street Volunteer Parent Society is not a registered charity and therefore any donations do not qualify for an official charitable donation receipt. However, Parent Council will issue receipts in the name of businesses only, for the Spell-a-thon or any other fundraiser. Please indicate you would like a receipt with your cheque, but it must be issued from a business account. All other donations will not be issued receipts.

ECS Information - Updated March 9th
Our ECS registration is in full swing for the 2015-2016 school year. If you have not already registered for Kindergarten for next year, please do so as soon as possible. Please note that we do require either a birth certificate or Passport before we can register your child. We hope that the majority of registrations will be submitted by the end of March or early April. It is important that ECS registrations be submitted as soon as possible to assist us in planning for next year.
Several parents have expressed interest in a full-day ECS program at Pine Street. For the 2015-2016 school year, we will run one morning and one afternoon half-day program, as well as two full-day programs: Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday with alternating Wednesdays for both classes.
We will try to accommodate parent requests for specific programs as best as possible, but it will be difficult for everyone to get their first choice. ECS parents will be informed of the decision as to which program their child will be in (morning, afternoon, Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday) during the week of April 13-17th, when we have more exact enrollment numbers. Please contact Student Transportation after April 17th to register for bus service.
Please contact Evelyn Gaudet if you have any questions.

Kindergarten Busing FAQ
When do I need to register my child for bus service for the fall?
You can contact Student Transportation following the Spring Break to register.
Is noon time busing available?
In urban Sherwood Park noon service is available although ride times can range from 30-90 minutes in length depending on enrollment and the pick-up or drop-off location.
Is there a transfer for the noon busing? What happens at the transfer and where is it?
There is a small transfer for urban Sherwood Park noon busing behind the Sherwood Park Mall.
Students board a bus at their pick-up location and may be required to board another bus that will transport them to their designated drop off location. There is a Safety Monitor at this site assisting students in locating their assigned bus.
Pine Street School Newsletters
The currrent Newsletter is now available for viewing.
We are noticing an increase in the number of students arriving late each morning, being dropped off by parents. Students can arrive any time after 8:00 am. If students are arriving early to school, they should wait in the front foyer until 8:15 am and go to their regular doors. Classes begin at 8:35 am.
Thanks for helping our school day run smoothly!
