I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.
Our staff is busy preparing for September and we are looking forward to working with our students.  We have lots of exciting opportunities planned for the year, stay tuned for more info! 
At this time, some students have noted their homeroom placement on PowerSchool.  Please note, there was much planning and consultation, amongst our staff, that went into building class list.  Parents were offered an opportunity last spring to make requests for class placements and we honoured these to the best of our abilities.  At this time, there will be no homeroom changes.  It is our belief that your child has been placed in a class that best suits them and we believe they will be successful in that setting.
A reminder that we will be doing a staggered entry, as follows:

​Tuesday, Sept 3, 2019 - Grade 5, Grade 7 and PLP only
Wednesday, Sept 4 2019 - All students
Our warning bell in the morning is at 9:05am, period 1 beginning at 9:10am.  Afternoon dismissal is at 3:40pm.  If your child is bussed, please check the CBE website for transportation information, including bus times and stops.  The link is:
Stay tuned for further information which will be sent out the end of August.
