First Day of School

Grade 1 – 5 students will start school on Tuesday, September 7.  When the Welcoming Bell rings at 8:08am, returning students will line-up at the exterior door of last year’s classroom and new students will report to the office for an orrientation. Students will spend the first day in their last year’s classrooms, so we can determine who has moved away and who has recently registered.  Students will be dismissed at 11:16 am on Tuesday, September 7. 

Assuming we are able to finalize our class placements on Tuesday September 7, Grade 1-5 students will be able to go to their new classrooms on Wednesday, September 8. Parents will be notified who their child’s new teacher is by email on Tuesday evening. Students will report to the outside door of their new classroom at 8:08am on Wednesday September 8.

Kindergarten students will begin their Gradual Entry on Wednesday, September 8.  Information about Kindergarten Gradual Entry was sent home in June at our Kindergarten Gift Bag event. There will also be a follow-up email sent to parents during the first week of September.

School Supplies

Families do not need to go out and purchase school supplies for their children. The school has purchased school supplies for each classroom, and families are charged a School Supply Fee to cover the cost of the supplies used over the course of the year. In preparation for the first day, students will need to have a backpack and a clean pair of indoor runners (with non-marking soles). A School Supply Fee Letter will be sent home as part of a newsletter during the first week.

If you have any questions, please give us a call.  Have a wonderful summer!
