AHM Voicemail for Friday January 15th

Picture retake orders are due to your child’s teacher by Monday January 18th.

Please be advised that at Arnold H. McLeod we are promoting and teaching our students to be independent. This includes our Kiss and Drop area.  The role of the staff supervising the Kiss and Drop is to assist only if it is needed.  The staff have been instructed to allow the students to open their own doors and put on their own backpacks.  This is especially important during this time of Covid protocols.  The staff are there to provide a safe environment only not to assist the students getting out of the car.  Should a child ask for help after being a persevering penguin, the staff would gladly oblige.

By the end of this week, students should have brought home a Learning from Home Packet.  Please leave these packets in the backpack unopened.  You will be advised by the school and/or your child’s teacher via email when you can open and complete the enclosed work.  With the uncertainty of school closures due to active Covid cases, our school is being proactive and sending these packets in case.  We do NOT have any announcements or news to share.

Next week, we will be sending home blue Profile Sheets to update information in our school system.  This is very important for contact information, so please take the time to update all necessary information.

AHM is happy to be one of the schools granted access to the New Brunswick Department of Education and Early Childhood Development's new free online library called SORA. With SORA, students have access to over 9,000 e-books, audio books or read-alongs in French and English. This week and next, our librarian Mrs. Davidson, is giving presentations to students, showing them how the website and app work. An info sheet will be sent home with students next week that provides the steps for logging on. Happy reading!


That’s all for this week.  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend.​
