Welcome to a new school year!  This year will be full of learning and laughter, challenges and change.  Our hope is that your child works to their fullest potential and acquire the skills to be able to communicate, understand, read, and write in both Chinese and English.  Even in a month’s time, you will be amazed at how much language your child has learned and how much academic and personal growth will have taken place.

Teachers work hard every day to personalize learning for each child, but also design tasks that are engaging, meaningful, and relevant.  As partners in educating students, we ask parents to support your child in these ways:​

  • Ensure that your child gets plenty of sleep at night.  This means an early bedtime, especially for those students who need to get up early to catch the bus or attend Kids Come First.
  • Have a quiet place for your child to do homework and to do nightly reading.
  • Have a consistent routine in place (i.e. a set time that homework is always done; a set time for home reading; a set time bed time)
  • Pack a healthy snack and lunch every day.  Remember that as the school year progresses; your child’s appetite grows as they physically grow, so you will need to pack more food.
  • If you drop your child off, it is important to drop them off on time.  It is good for your child to be part of the classroom’s daily routine from the very beginning of the day.  It also ensures that they will not be missing any important activities or lessons.

In the coming days and weeks, a lot of important information will be sent to you via email, D2L, or in your child’s agenda bag.  Please make it a habit to check all three on a daily basis.

Looking forward to a fantastic school year!

Christine Cheung

Principal
