AHM Voicemail for Friday January 22nd

At the K-2 dismissal, there are a number of cars that are parking and blocking the driveways of our neighbors.  We understand that you may feel that you are only there for a short time; however, one of the houses is a business and this is severely affecting their customers.  Should this continue, the owners of the houses may be forced to call the police.

Please note that Covid regulations are not permitting the exchange of Valentines this year at Arnold H.  If you send them to school with your child, they will be returned to you.  Thank you for being a Flexible Flamingo.

We continue to work hard daily at Arnold H. to make sure that our students and staff are healthy with all of our strategies in our operation plan.  Staff are now actively screened as they arrive daily.

How can you do your part?

1.       Please remember to screen your child daily.  If they have 1 symptom they must stay home from school.  Symptoms include fever, cough, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pain, purple markings on the fingers or toes, headache and fatigue/exhaustion.

2.       Please send two clean masks and a water bottle daily with your child.

3.       Please return the blue profile sheets to your child’s teacher.  It is very important that we have  up to date information in the event that contact tracing is needed.

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

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.​

For the parents who are using our Kiss and Drop to bring their children to school.  We ask that you observe the following:

·         Please do not wait and watch your child enter the building.  There are three staff members on duty should your child need help.

·         Please move ahead to the front of the line if the opportunity presents itself.

We are also alarmed at the number of parents and students who are walking in the bus or Kiss and Drop lanes when arriving at school.  Please set a good example and use the sidewalks and crosswalks that are intended for pedestrians.

You will be getting an alert for the 2020-2021 school supply fee of 10$ at some point. There was a glitch in the system and some of you received an e-mail about 2019-2020 school fee. This has been fixed. The District apologizes for this error.

Yesterday was the final delivery of student lunch bags daily. Families are asked to call the Greater Moncton United Way if there is a need throughout the summer months.

The first day of school for next year will be Tuesday September 8th 

 

We wish everyone a safe and happy summer filled with lots of fun!  We look forward to seeing everyone in the fall. The school phone messages will not be picked up between June 24th to August 31st.

 

That’s all for today.  Thanks for listening and have a great summer.

I am pleased to say our Year End Slide show is ready! So, pop some popcorn, put on some fun music, and sit back and enjoy the show. A huge thank you to Mrs. Holman for putting it all together.

Click on the link below to see the slideshow. It is about 45 min in length so it may take a few minutes to open. The slideshow has also been posted to our school website.

Good afternoon parents and guardians of Arnold H. McLeod School,

This is a special voicemail message for Wednesday, June 17th.

Each year at AHM grade level teams select one student who has shown growth either academically, behaviorally or both throughout the school year to receive the Apple Growth Award.

Unfortunately, this year we are unable to celebrate their accomplishments during our final assembly in June. With permission from their parents we have posted the write up on our school website under the “documents” section. The students received a certificate, plaque, and a picture.

It is with great pleasure I announce the six Apple Growth winners for the 2019-2020 school year.

Kindergarten- Francois Allen

Grade One- Bryden Brown

Grade Two- Alexander Gallant

Grade Three- Zein Iqelan

Grade Four- Saddie Geldart

Grade 5 Kenneth Kay

Congratulations to all of you. We are very proud of the accomplishment you made this year.

Good afternoon parents and guardians of Arnold H. McLeod School,

This is the weekly voicemail message for Friday June 12th,

Minister Dominic Cardy made an announcement today at 11:00am about the return to school plan for September. Follow the link below to watch his announcement.

 We are working on staffing for the fall and once that is in place we can begin to look at the physical layout of the school and a safety plan will be put in place. Please help us begin to transition your child for the fall now. Please explain to them the concept of a class bubble. This will be their sole grouping for all activities inside and outside of the school. Things will look the same and different next year. Arrivals, recess, specialty classes, lunch and departures will look different as we follow required safety guidelines. Some AHM traditions such as Math Flex and all our wonderful clubs and activities may have to be put on hold. We will do our best to make these changes as smooth as possible for our students and staff. We also understand that things could change at any time according to government directives and we will adapt and change accordingly.The Return to School Plan can be found on the Anglophone East School District Website.

Report cards will be picked up at the school on Monday, June 15th. It will be a drive-thru pickup. Please drive up to the pylons at the K-2 doors. If you are walking please line up at the pylons by the Kindergarten playground. Your child’s homeroom teacher will meet you and bring the report card to your vehicle. Please remain in your vehicle so we are following social distancing protocols. No one will be permitted into the building except for staff.  If you have multiple children, you can come at the time that is most convenient for you. K-2 will be from 9:00am to 11:30am and 3-5 from 12:30pm to 3:00pm. If you can’t come on this day, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.

•We are missing 200 library books and would appreciate it if you could return them when you come to the school on Monday. Please put them in a plastic bag labelled with your child’s homeroom teacher. The books will be cleaned later. Also homeroom teachers are looking for their classroom library books. It would be greatly appreciated if you could return them on Monday too.

Homeroom teachers were doing their final contact home this week. We appreciate your continued support throughout this time.

• The bagged lunch program ends on Friday, June 19th. If your family needs food please contact Peter McKee Centre at 506-383-4281
