School Memo #2 - Monday, September 9th, 2019

​Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

We are into Week 2 at the Creek. I hope your child is settling into the new Creeker routine and is enjoying their learning and growing with everyone.

Procedures and Reminders

Morning Drop Offs -  As we settle into routine, please remember to let your child out through the right passenger door next to the parking barrier.   - Please remember not to go around other cars in line, even if your child has gotten out of the car as we want to avoid accidents.

Dogs on the playground or visiting during drop off or pick up – some students can be afraid of dogs, so we ask that if you do walk them with you to pick up your child, that you remain away from the sidewalk where students are.

Fire Drill – we will be having our 1st fire drill this Monday. Students have already heard the sound of the alarm and have been practicing with their teachers to ensure they know what to do!

Student Fees and Cashless Schools - If you have not yet done so, please go to the  website as soon as possible  to pay any  student fees . http://anglophonewest.schoolcashonline.com/


Meet the Teacher this Wednesday 6:30- 7:30 pm !  - Come on out to meet the staff, learn about the school and your child's class. Meet in the gym at 6:30 pm . This is a meeting for the adults in particular rather than student oriented.

Blues in the Schools - our  Harvest Jazz performance is this Thursday  at 1:10 pm.  Dan Doiron will be performing for us and KCS students will be joining us as well 

Terry Fox Walk this Friday 1:15 pm  – To bring awareness to the incredible work that Terry Fox did to fight cancer,  we will be walking around the school perimeter on Friday. Students are welcome to donate a loonie and wear a hat if they wish!

Immune Suppressed  Student in our School – please read the  important attached letter so that you are informed as to a student who is immuned suppressed due to medication associated with an illness. It outlines when to advise our office as to any  sicknesses your child may have during the year that could compromise his health.  Thank you for your attention.​
