It is hard to believe that there are three months left in this school year! Spring has sprung... finally! Many things are happening at the school so be sure to watch for information on our website, the school newsletter found on the website, the school calendar, in the teacher newsletters, and your child's agenda. Information is also sent out through Synervoice and Twitter.
Planning will be taking place over the next few months for next year. During our school based professional development days on April 11th and May 16th, teachers will be looking at how to provide the best instructional practices to our students. We will be ensuring that our students are engaged, ethical and have an entrepreneurial spirit in their pursuit of academic excellence. Our enrollment numbers have climbed and we will have a full house! Next year all of our classroom spaces will be used. To accommodate this growth, two grade three classrooms will move to the north end of the school. We will be making slight changes to our bell schedule next year so watch for that update later in May.
If you drive your child to school, you may have noticed a few changes regarding two drop off and pick up zones at the school. They have been implemented so that students do not have to cross the street if parents are not coming into the school. Supervision is in place to ensure your child gets into the school or picked up from the zones. If parents wish to come into the school with their child, you are asked to park in the designated areas. Check out more information at our parking link which includes a map with specific details. Thank you to all parents for ensuring the safety of all our students. Students have learned to use the Pause. Point. Proceed method to cross the street in the crosswalk areas. Thank you, Strathcona County, for providing pencils or erasers for each student.
A huge thank you to everyone who has volunteered this year. We greatly appreciate your time spent helping us in so many ways. Please join us for the Volunteer Luncheon on May 7th.
Wishing all our families a Happy Easter! Enjoy the time away from April 18-21st. See you back on April 22nd.
