Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

I hope your family has had an enjoyable summer, and that your child(ren) are ready for an engaging and rewarding year ahead. As always, our school’s focus will be on best practice in teaching and learning, with a strong focus on academic success. We have several exciting initiatives planned for this year – stay tuned for details!
Thank you to our Bowcroft community who came out for our free book & ice cream giveaway this summer. It was a pleasure to see so many families and staff members each Monday morning. We had about 60 people in the gym every week. It is very uncommon for an elementary school to organize such an AMazing opportunity for staff and families to connect in July and August. Thank you to Ms. Bonham for leading this initiative once again this summer!
Class lists will be posted by the school office beginning at 12 PM on Friday, August 30. If your child(ren) would benefit from knowing their classroom placement and meeting their teacher prior to September 3, feel free to visit on this afternoon.
Classes begin on Tuesday, September 3 at 9 AM, with our daily free breakfast available from 8:45 AM to 9:00 AM. Please note we will be offering a more limited selection of breakfast items this year as provincial funding for this initiative has not continued. However, many thanks to President’s Choice for their $4,000 donation to our breakfast program. These funds will ensure we will have food items available for students throughout the fall.
Students should proceed directly to their classrooms on Tuesday morning. We ask that parents only stay with their child(ren) for a short time so that teachers may establish regular routines as soon as possible.
Bowcroft’s start and end times are:
Grades 1-6 Kindergarten Monday to Thursday 9:00 AM - Entry School Bell 12:15 PM – 1:00 PM – Lunch 3:40 PM – Dismissal School Bell A 15 minute recess is included each morning.
