It is hard to believe that it is August already and that we are planning for the return of the students! You may find the following information helpful in your preparations for September.
First Days We will have a staggered start to the school year at Bishop Pinkham. Grade 7 students begin Tuesday, September 4. This is a full day; lunch will be provided to students. After our youngest students have had the school to themselves for a day, we welcome all our students in grades 7-9 on Wednesday, September 5. To support students transition back to school we have coordinated multiple activities to help students work together to create a strong and proud learning community together. Our school hours will be 8:00 – 2:30 Mondays through Thursdays and 8:00 – 12:00 on Fridays.
Transportation On their first day, Grades 7 – 9 students will be assigned lockers. Please note that at this time of year, class schedules are accessible throughout Power School but still changing frequently. Students will receive a copy of their timetable and course outlines from each of their teachers.
Students who will be riding the bus should have submitted a pre-registration to the CBE in June. Bus routes and schedules for the 2018-19 school-year are posted on the CBE website at www.cbe.ab.ca/busstop
Hard copies will be available in our school office on August 29. Buses will begin on Tuesday, September 4.
