Principal's Message

Weekly Message for Sept. 3

​Hello and welcome back to another school year! We’re very excited to welcome all students on Tuesday, September 4.
This message was sent by email to all families on Sunday, September 2. Future messages will only be emailed to all families who have subscribed to School Messenger. If you have not yet done so, I would encourage you to complete the subscription information so that you will receive weekly information messages in your email but I will also post them here for your access.
Parking Lot Safety
Parents dropping students off for school are requested to refrain from entering the main parking lot. It gets very busy around the school at the start and conclusion of the school day so reducing traffic is a key component to keeping our students safe.
Also on the theme of student safety and bicycles we are requesting parents ensure students wear a bike helmet when riding their bikes to school. We strongly encourage active lifestyles and I think it is fantastic when students ride their bikes to school but they must wear a helmet according to provincial law.
Grade Specific Gathering Locations
On the first day of school, students should move to the following locations in the building to meet with their teachers and begin their day:
Grade 5 – Auxiliary Gym
Grade 6 – Learning Commons
Grade 7 – Main Gym
Grade 8 – Main Gym
Grade 9 – Upstairs Foyer
Of course, any students (and parents) who are new to our school and unsure of these locations are welcome to come to the office or approach any of our staff for assistance.
School Information Packages
Students will receive an information package on Tuesday to bring home; included in this package will be a wealth of information and we request that any blue forms be completed and returned to school as soon as possible.
Servery
Our school server will not open during the first week of classes. Food service for students will begin in the coming weeks and we will provide updates once we have finalized food offerings and service providers.
School Council Meetings
The Captain Nichola Goddard School Council and Parent Association will be having the first meeting of the 2018-19 school year on Tuesday September 18th (6:30pm in the Learning Commons). Everyone is welcome!!
We meet throughout the year on Tuesdays at 6:30pm on the following dates: Sept. 18, Oct. 16, Nov. 20, Jan. 22, Mar. 12, Apr. 16 and May 28. Dates are subject to change if a conflict with other school events arises. Please join us to learn more about the school and how you can get involved in supporting our students.
Volunteers
We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school. Most of our activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers.
Prospective volunteers must first register as a volunteer at the school office. You must also complete the annual CBE volunteer registration form. Volunteer clearances are valid for 5 years from the date of clearance.
By completing the form, you agree to abide by the conditions that protect the safety, confidentiality and working environment of our school. You also make a signed declaration with regard to criminal charges. Follow this link to complete the annual volunteer registration form and return to the school office with photo ID.
Please note prospective volunteers must reside in Canada for a full year before registering. Police clearances from countries other than Canada and police clearances completed for other volunteer groups or activities such as community sports groups are not accepted.
Sports Teams
We are already jumping right into the tryouts for soccer this week. Cross-country running will start the following week and volleyball the week after that. Specific dates and times will be provided to students by the PE department and team coaches. Specific information around teams including tryouts will be on the PE blog. Future weekly messages will include specific dates and times for each team. Students wishing to try out for teams need to have their athletic form signed and handed in before attending tryouts.
Music/Band Program Information
Students who rented instruments from the school over the summer, please return them to the band room before the end of this week. Grade 7-9 band students should bring their instruments to school beginning September 10th since we will be playing in class. All the details for upcoming rehearsals, tryouts and events will be added to the blog in the near future.
There will be a band information & instrument rental night along with information provided regarding the upcoming Band Camp. Dates and times will be sent home with students this week.
