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.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
The first day of school for Grade 1 – 5 students will be Wednesday, September 7.
The office will be open on Tuesday September 6, however, there will be no school for students on this day.
When the Welcoming Bell rings at 8:09am on Wednesday September 7, returning students will line-up at the exterior door of last year’s classroomand new students will report to the office for an orientation. 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. This will be a full day for students so please make sure they come with a snack, lunch, and indoor shoes. Students will be dismissed at 2:10pm.
Grade 1-5 parents should look for an email on the evening of Wednesday September 7. If we can finalize our class placements on Wednesday September 7, the email you receive will contain information about your child’s new teacher. If we are not able to finalize our class placements on Wednesday September 7, Grade 1-5 students should report to last year’s classroom again on Thursday September 8.
Kindergarten students will begin their Gradual Entry on Thursday, September 8. Information about Kindergarten Gradual Entry was sent home in June at our Kindergarten Orientation event. There will also be a follow-up email sent to parents during the first week of September.
