News: February 5, 2002.
Registration Time for the Fall of 2002!
may have seen the Halifax Regional School Boardís advertisement in the weekend
paper regarding registration for next year.
Now is the time for families who live in our school area to register
their 5 year olds for next yearís grade primary class.
We will register our local children, both for our own English program,
and for the Early French Immersion program that is currently held at Shannon
contact Mrs. Potter in the School Office at 464-2064
as early as possible, but no later than February 28.
While we may register students after that date, the School Board does not
provide the same options regarding space and staff.
These February registrations are used to determine staffing ratios in our
school and it is important that they are as accurate as possible.
tell your neighbours who have five year olds, but who may not have any students
in this school, that it is time to register.
It is important that these parents receive this message.
for registration are:
address within our boundaries
childís birth certificate
proof of address
Please call and give us the name of your child, even if you donít have all
your papers ready.)
will hold an orientation program later in the Spring and we will provide
registered families with information regarding the orientation program at a
later date. At that time, the
Health Nurses will require a copy of your childís immunization records.
We suggest that you start the process now to acquire the immunization
records in preparation for orientation / formal registration.
will register our current grade six students at Bicentennial Junior High School
because that is our designated junior high school. Parents do not have to register the children.
However, if you are a parent / guardian of a grade six student and you
wish for your child to attend a junior high school other than Bicentennial,
please advise us.
Cards will be given out on Tuesday, February 12.
We collected $273.00 for UNICEF.
