Term 1 Report Cards:  We know that teacher assessment and evaluation of student learning and achievement are important components of the teaching and learning process. As part of its work-to-rule job sanctions, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has directed teachers not to create comments for report cards and not to complete the electronic entry of grades. Teacher’s electronic submission of grades and the verification of those grades and comments are required to complete the report card process. As such, at this time, we will be unable to provide students and families with Term One report cards.

SAFETY REMINDERS In order to ensure student safety, we are reminding parents / guardians that students cannot be dropped off to school earlier than 8:15am, as there is NO supervision before 8:15am. Students are also reminded that they must go home right at dismissal time. Parents / guardians must inform the office & classroom teacher, if there are any changes in dismissal routines. Please do not park in the staff parking lot, particularly during entry and dismissal times. Please drive slowly in the pick up /drop off loop. This will help support student safety.

Please remember to send your child to school every day with appropriate winter clothing for outdoor play. Students spend approximately 60 minutes a day outside. Please label all items with your child’s name on it. Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation! For students to stay warm, they can wear a: Winter jacket / hat / mitts / boots; Neck warmer or scarf; Snow pants.

French Immersion:  If you are planning to move or have your child attend French Immersion in September please notify the office.  Thank you.
