I would like to thank you all
for your continued patience with our after-school bussing. As our district
transportation continue to refine their own routines and routes, I anticipate
the wait/drop-off times to continue to improve. Here are a few upcoming reminders
for you to be aware of.
- School Tour Video
– For many families, it has been quite some time since you have been
inside our building! With that in mind, we have created a virtual school
tour which can be accessed here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1N6Oix1GhpA.
This video will be available on our school website as well.
- Grade 3-5 students will be
visited by members of the ESTEY
Art program Monday afternoon. Information will be shared
for any families interested in registering their child for this
after-school program. This is set to begin at the end of the month once
- Due to some excessive rain on
Friday, our Fire
Drill was postponed and will take place this morning.
Prior to the alarm sound, all students will receive important reminders
about how to travel safely inside and outside of the building and most
importantly, to remain calm when this important procedure is needed. For
some, this experience can generate some anxieties. We hope to minimize
these feelings through practice and discussions!
- This Wednesday, September 15th,
at 6:30pm our teaching staff will be available for a virtual ‘Meet the Teacher’
welcome. Stay tuned for the invitation coming from your child’s teacher.
- Start-up packages
that were sent home last week with your child are to be completed and
submitted back to your child’s teacher. If you have not done so yet,
please make this a priority this week as this information is very important
for our record system.
- If you have a child who
requires a medical/safety
plan due to the following, a Policy 704 form will be sent
home to be completed or updated. Please look for it in your child's
backpack, sign and return by Wednesday September 15.
- carries an Epi-Pen
- takes medication on an
on-going basis at school (for example: inhalers, Ritalin)
- needs immediate care
due to a potential life threatening situation or condition
- ongoing observations
for a health condition
- School Cash online
is available for families to pay for student fees https://anglophonewest.schoolcashonline.com/
. If payment by cash or cheque is required, please note that the identical
cost from school cash will be needed.
- We are hoping to start with Pizza as our first Hot lunch
option of the school year starting in early October.
School Cash online will be the preferred method to register for this. More
info to come soon!
Creek School will take part in the annual Terry Fox Run again this Friday, September 17th. In
order to be allowed to wear a Hat
or Pyjamas for the day, students are asked to donate $2 to
their child’s teacher. All classes will participate in our school event
starting at 1:00 p.m.
- A memo will be going home
about Cross Country
Running opportunities for children at the Gr. 3-5 levels.
A school wide event has been set for October 6th. Stay tuned
for more information.
