Principal's Message

Welcome Back to Another Excellent Year at Cecil Swanson School

Welcome back to another excellent year at Cecil Swanson School. The Student/Parent Handbook is a valuable source of information about school hours, behaviour expectations, student safety and general information. This year we are asking you to sign the various pages as you read it over with your child. This will be one more opportunity for your child to review our schools expectations.
Teachers are already hard at work preparing some really great lessons for our young learners. They have also started planning field trips and other special experiences for the 2019-2020 school year.
Thanks to all of you who had the opportunity to volunteer last year. Your support was greatly appreciated. This year we hope to have a field trip schedule for you by the end of October. We realize that it is difficult for many working parents to volunteer on short notice. It is our hope that by giving you this information in the fall you will be able to rearrange your work schedule to attend at least one field trip this year. And if you are really interested we could definitely use your help in our classrooms or the Library (The Learning Commons). We know that you are aware that this is a special time for children when their parents go with them to school events or participate in the classroom, so please think about it and hopefully you can spare a few hours.
School Council and the Cecil Swanson School Society provide important support to our school. It is an excellent way to be involved in your child’s school. The first meeting will be on September 10 at 6:30 pm in the school staffroom and the October meeting will be the General Elections. All parents are welcome! Please come and support your children’s school through School council.
We will have our first meet the teacher evening Thursday September 12 from 6:00 – 7:00. We encourage all parents to attend with their child. This is your opportunity to give us important information about your child. We all want to plan for the success of all of our children.
Next week a brown envelope with forms will be sent home with your child. Please check your childs’ back pack for these forms and return them as soon as possible to the school.
After school all children are to go home and check in with an adult before coming back to play in our creative playground. Only those students who are being supervised by an adult may stay and play. Children are not to arrive at school before 8:00 AM as there is no adult supervision available. Both of these measures are to ensure your child’s safety. If your children go home for lunch, they should not return to play until 12:33 PM. At that time, teachers and Lunch Supervisors are available to supervise them.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the office.
Sincerely
Mr. Adam Topp, Principal​
