​Welcome back to a brand new school year – one that, if the first week is any indication, promises to be a fantastic year! Your children have been awesome. Already in the first week, we’ve observed older students helping younger kids, veteran ‘Deer Runions’ assisting new students, kids volunteering for the assembly, setting up tetherballs, patrolling and offering to babysit at our School Council Meeting and, of course, students helping teachers whenever asked. We are fortunate to be able to work every day with such a caring and responsible group of kids! We welcome all of our new families and hope you feel settled into your new school. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the office if you have any questions or concerns.

We also welcome a few new staff members: 

  • Jenna Yurchi teaching AM and PM Kindergarten
  • Christy Pizzulo teaching AM Kindergarten
  • Denae Delcourt teaching Grades 1 and 2
  • Alexandria Gilbert returning to teach Grade 3
  • Linda Grady, our new library assistant
  • Harold Whittaker covering Mrs. Kirch’s leave until the end of September​

Thank you for your understanding as we sort out how school fees will look this year. We expect to have information about lunchroom fees, activity fees and waivers shortly and will inform you about any changes as soon as everything is finalized. 

There is a need to issue a reminder about street safety. We work diligently to teach students about safety. Our patrols are trained by a constable and take their jobs very seriously. It would be an absolute tragedy if any students were involved in any kind of accident. Twice this year a car was witnessed driving through the crosswalk while the patrols had their stop signs out. In both incidents the driver seemed to be distracted. Please, please, please be extra vigilant in our school zone. It is an extremely busy road in the mornings and despite out cautions, we still observe parents jaywalking with their children on a consistent basis. We have spoken about these issues with our constable and he will be patrolling regularly

RT @ChildMntlHealth: Is today the most depressing day of the year? Actually, it isn’t. #BlueMonday may be science fiction, but it offers up a time to talk about the challenges we're currently facing in light of COVID-19 and to build resilience for the weeks (months) to come: https://t.co/UfszUGzw0W https://t.co/kJjc2dxWRW
