New Classes

We hope that students will move to their 2015/16 classrooms by Thursday morning. Enrolment may have fluctuated over the summer and final student placements may need to be reviewed. Once our numbers are secure, we can finalize our class configurations and teacher assignments, review student placements and move to their new classes. We will make every effort to have students in their new classes as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

School Supplies

  • If you ordered packaged school supplies, they may be picked up in the gym on Tuesday, September 8th. Please check in with a member of the PAC, in the gym, for assistance and record-keeping purposes.

  • If supplies are not picked up on Tuesday, they will be delivered to the children, once they have moved to their new classes.
