A Week in Review

We have finished the first FULL week of school and it certainly has been FULL! Thank you to our families and the community for supporting us and the transition back to school. We are SO happy to be back together again and learning with and from one another. As we continue to journey through this school year, we will be in regular communication through the Blog, Twitter, Instagram and EDsby. Should you need to speak with us, do not hesitate to contact us at the school or send us an email. Please see below for information from this week and the coming weeks.

SCHOOL START UP PACKAGES – these were sent home today via email.  Student GAPPS login information will be required for families to complete the forms.  The form will include:

  • The Start-Up Permission Form
  • Student Information Consent Form
  • Request for Faith Accommodations Form 
  • School Council Nomination Form

We ask that these forms be completed by Friday, September 24. 

SCHOOL COUNCIL – every parent is welcome at School Council. This is a forum to hear more details about what is happening at the school and to support initiatives and provide input into many things here at the school. You may come to as many meetings as you choose and you do not need to hold an ‘executive role’ on council to attend. If you are interested in having an official vote for decisions at Council, please complete the nominaton form in the School Start-Up Package. Meetings are held in the evenings (virtually), six times a year. Monitor the blog for more information. Our first council meeting will be on September 30th at 7:00 p.m.

SCHOOL MODEL CHANGE – This week we shared a form for you to complete if you were interested in having your child change from virtual to in-person learning or vice versa. The form is now closed. We will review the responses in the coming days and be in touch before September 27th if we haven’t already. If you have any questions about this, please contact the school.

TERRY FOX – This year we are going to move our Terry Fox Walk/Run to the beginning of October because of our later start to school. Stay tuned for more details regarding this event and how you can support it.

SAVE THE DATE! Curriculum Night is set to be held on MONDAY OCTOBER 4th. At this point we are planning for it to be a virtual event.
