Agendas The students have started to record homework assignments in their agenda. Thank you for submitting the $10 fee to cover the cost of the agenda book! Notices Just a reminder to check your child's agenda for items such as notices, flyers, and newsletters. These contain important information! Opening Routines When the bell sounds at 9:10 each morning, the students enter the school under the direction of a teacher. In the classroom, outdoor shoes are removed and "indoor" shoes are donned. Students then remove from their backpack any homework that is due, their agendas, and their pencil case. Each morning begins with O Canada, general announcements, and a prayer. Indoor Shoes A reminder that every child should have a pair of "indoor" shoes. These shoes remain at school and should be suitable for running around in the gym in Phys Ed class. Clean shoes must be worn at all times; students don't want to be caught with only socks on their feet if we ever have to exit the school from a location away from the classroom (such as the library or gym) as part of a surprise fire drill! Fire Drills The students have reviewed fire safety procedures in the school, and will be participating in several fire drills in the coming months. All the children have been encouraged to involve the entire family in planning fire safety procedures at home. Lock Down Drills The students have also been briefed on what to do if the school is put into a lock down. Two drills will be held during this school year. Birthdays When a student has a birthday, the class sings best wishes to him or her, and a special blessing will be given. Students with summer birthdays will be surprised one day during the year!
