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. We will have a staggered start to the school year at Bishop Pinkham.
Grades 6 and 7 students begin Tuesday, September 5. 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 6-9 on Wednesday, September 6. Our school hours will be 8:00 – 2:30
Mondays through Thursdays and 8:00 – 12:00 on Fridays.
On their first day, Grades 6 – 9 students will be
assigned lockers. Students will also
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 2017-18 school-year are posted on the CBE website at www.cbe.ab.ca/busstop. Hard copies will be available in our school
