As of February 15th,
only nine children have registered to join us in Grade Primary in the Fall.
Two weeks ago, we sent home
a note inviting parents who live in our boundaries to register their children
for next year’s Grade Primary class. Please
pass along our registration invitation to parents who may not have children in
our neighbourhood school.
It is very important for us
to have an accurate registration during the month of February.
First of all, we get to know who is coming.
Secondly, we have the opportunity to access any additional supports that
may be required for these students. (It
is much more difficult to access additional services after the school year has
started.) Thirdly, our staffing
allocation is based on the number of local students who register during the
month of February. We need 20+
registrations from within the neighbourhood by February 28th.
Please spread the word.
We also register our
Northbrook neighbourhood children who wish to attend the Early French Immersion
Program, but they do not count in our totals.
I had the opportunity to read
over 100 of the First Term Report Cards that went home on Tuesday, February 12.
It is easy to see that our students have accomplished much over the first
term. Formal learning is a
cooperative effort and if everyone does his/her part, great success can be
achieved. Thank you to all –
students, parents, and staff!
The Northbrook School staff members are preparing a Math Curriculum
presentation for Thursday, February 28th at 6:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you and the children.
The purpose of the program is provide you with the opportunity to work on
the various types of Math activities prescribed to meet the Department of
Education Math Outcomes. This is a participation program, so come along and have some
Math fun with us.
100th Day of School:
This week, the Grade Two’s will display their 100’s
collections in the gym. The Grade
Primary and One students will have some 100th Day activities in their
classroom. It’s a big day.
We are so lucky:
We have a group of volunteers who work with us in and
out of the school on a regular basis. Their
commitment allows us to do more than we could otherwise do.
Thank you so much!
The make up date and final appearance for the
Northbrook Hockey League will be March 1. Thanks
to Mr. MacLean and the parents who have helped to make this possible.
The Home and School hosted a successful dance on
Saturday past. The silent auction
seems to have generated a lot of interest.
Thanks to all who attended and all who served. The event raised about $2000.00.
Dress for Success:
In our scenario, this should read dress for the
weather. Our weather will continue
to fluctuate over the next while. We
have noticed that some of the children seem to think the warm weather has
arrived. We still need winter
coats, hats and gloves. So, please
check this out for us at home.
Please call 464-2064 before 9:00am to report student
absences. The voice mail will take
your message if Mrs. Potter is unavailable.
Library / Author:
We have had local authors visit the Library and work with our students
over the year. This week, Mary-Jane
Hampton will work with our students in Grades 5 and 6.
March Break / Easter:
The next breaks in the school calendar will come soon.
March Break will be held from March 11-15th and March 29 (Good
Friday) and April 1 (Easter Monday) follow shortly after.
