June 4, 2002.
School Advisory Council:
The SAC held a meeting on May 29 to solicit input regarding
the current School Improvement Plan. The
SAC wishes to thank all who attended and the suggestions will be reviewed at the
SAC’s June meeting.
The Home and School Association organized a successful Yard
Clean-up Day, on Saturday, May 25. Approximately
35 people were in attendance. Lots of garbage was collected from the playground area and
the lines for the playground games were refreshed.
Primary Registration / Orientation:
The school will welcome the new primaries who live within
our boundaries on June 4th. In
addition to the various registration and health checks, the children will have a
chance to visit the grade primary classroom.
Excel Lunch Program:
Excel supervisors are always looking for substitutes for the lunch program. You may apply at the Board Offices at 90 Alderney Drive.
The Excel offices will be closed from July 1 to August 12.
Late registration will be held on August 20th
We are making our plans for next year and have been for some time. Like you, we are waiting for the decision from the Court of Appeal. We will advise you as soon as we know something.
By the end of next week, we hope to know more about our staffing situation for next year. We do know that our student numbers have declined by 28 within-boundary students. That means that we will have one fewer classroom teacher next year because classroom teachers are assigned on a formula basis.
Around the middle of June, we will make our decision
regarding out-of-area requests to attend this school. Since staffing allocations are based on within-boundary
students, and since we have been reduced by one teacher because our numbers have
decreased significantly, it will be difficult for us to accept many, if any,
out-of-area requests. We will
advise all parents who have submitted out-of-area requests of our decision by
the end of June.
June Dates / Check for Notices:
There are many school-wide events in June.
There are many individual classroom events.
Please watch for notices in your child’s bookbag.

A Message from Girl Guides:

by Vivian Dorey. Members of guiding
enjoy a number of activities leading to FUN, CHALENGE AND ADVENTURE, as
well as actively participate in LOCAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

is something for everyone. For

We have worked to have a successful school year and it has been a success. In any school, or in any organization where there are a lot of people, there can be ups and downs. However, we have had a great year and we are looking forward to a great June to wrap it up. Thank you for helping us to be successful!
