Grade 1/2 A


Welcome Back Grade 1/2 Students with Mrs. Gillis(Room 4)

Welcome back for the 2022 2023 school year! I hope that you’ve had a wonderful summer break. 

My name is Heather Gillis and I will be your child’s teacher. I am thrilled to be welcoming students into our classroom on Monday, August 15, 2022

On the first day of school, check the class lists outside the school to confirm your child’s teacher. Teachers will be outside with signs for students to identify them.  Students will then meet their teacher near the playground line up and enter through the doors that face the playground. 

The bell to line up will ring at 7:58 am, students will enter the school with their teacher at 8:00 am, and are dismissed out the same door at 2:40pm. 

Please have students arrive with:

  • Indoor shoes (to leave at school) 
  • Water bottle
  • Lunch and snack (please note that all garbage from lunches goes back home)
  • Backpack for all belongings
  • Headphones (labelled with your child’s name, if your child does not have headphones to bring, they will use the shared ones in the classroom) 
  • All personal belongings labelled with name
  • *Please note that you do not need to send any school supplies with your child, we have everything we need! Thank you!

Important notes:

  • Please bookmark this page to keep updated on our classroom happenings!

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing your children and getting our school year off to a great start on Monday, August 15th. 

Have a wonderful weekend,

Heather Gillis
