Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

Good afternoon, Creeker Families:

We are into Week 2 at the Creek. I hope your child is settling into the new classroom and is enjoying getting to make new friends and increasing their learning.  


Safety Reminders

 Morning Drop Offs -  Please continue to 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

 PM Pick Ups - It is nice for the adults  to chat with friends at pick up time , but this is a time when we are loading students onto the busses so it can make  for a busy area that could be unsafe. Please find another place to meet if you want to chat.

 Blues in the Schools - our  Harvest Jazz performance is this Tuesday at 1:10 pm. John Campbelljohn, a guitarist and dobro lap steel player will be performing for our students.

 Grade 3-5 Art Program - Jennifer Kruger with Estey Creations, will again be holding an Art program at our school on Mondays and Tuesdays starting on September 24 and 25th  and running for 10 weeks. More info to come on this in the coming week.

 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.

 Student Fees and Cashless Schools - If you have not yet done so, please jump to the website right away to pay the student fees . http://anglophonewest.schoolcashonline.com/

 Terry Fox Walk - We will be walking around the school perimeter on Friday. Students are welcome to donate a loonie and wear a hat if they wish!

 Fluoride Mouthrinse Volunteers Needed- We will be in need of 3 volunteers to help set up the mouthrinse program on a weekly basis. This would entail preparing the fluoride, filling the dixie cups for the students and delivering them to the classrooms. It would take about 45minutes or less, starting at 8:00AM. We can choose the day that works for the three volunteers. Please call or email the school if you are interested in helping out and let us know the days that work for you. I hope to have the program running  by the last week of September.
