Thank you for bringing your children to school on time and ready to learn! If you happen to arrive later than 9:05 a.m., please check in at the school office with your child for a late slip. Our school principal, Ms. Thomas, is really keen on having all the students in the school arrive on time, and maintain excellent attendance throughout the school year.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays will be gym days for kindergarten this year. We will have gym class after recess from 11:00 to 11:50 p.m. On those days, please have your child wear runners to school, as well as comfortable clothing. Children with long hair will be asked to tie up their hair so they can see better and be safe. Mr. Costea also asks students to take off any jewelry that might get caught during activities or games in the gym. Please ask your child what colour group they are in for gym class. After running warm-up laps, students organize themselves and sit in four groups as they get ready for learning in the gym.
We have already been in class for one week, and Wednesday, September 13, 2017 is our first full day of school! Over the last week, we have already read several stories together. I believe books are a great way to extend oral language for students and to also introduce new concepts.
