Morning Radio News @ 9:05 am

Morning entrance:
All Students are to enter the school through the front doors.  Students are not to come in the far south parking lot doors.  You are allowed to go out these doors at recess, lunch and after school. 

Recess and Lunch:
During the nice weather, we are wanting all students to get your snack and make your way outside.   Fresh air and movement activity is good for all of us. 

Newly planted grass:
Many have noticed, they have recently put in a new pathway along the north side of the school. There is fresh top soil and new grass seed planted, we are asking that everyone stay off of this until the grass has a chance to grow.

There are a few students who still do not have a lock on their locker.  All lockers are to have a lock on them to keep personal items secure.   It would be appreciated if homeroom teachers could follow up on this. All empty lockers have now been locked up.  If classes still need a locker, please talk to Mr. Bergeron. 

Homework Club: Homework club has started up for the school year. Anyone interested in extra help with homework can join Mr. Forrester in room 215 on Monday, Wednesday & Fridays from 8:00-9:00 am and Tuesdays and Thursday from 3:06-4:06 pm. Ask your teacher for more information.

We encourage drop off and pick up of students on Greenlea – It is safer for the students and less congested in the parking lot.

Parents picking up students – We ask that you do not wait outside classrooms. Please wait outside front entrance of the school or inside the main lobby if the weather is unfavourable. At middle school we encourage independence. There are over 635 students and the hallways are very congested.

Please, do not park in the bus lane – the buses need to be able to pick up students safely.

Consider the Environment - We encourage your child to walk, bike or ride the bus to school. Parking Lot Congestion – Go Green!!!!!

Please complete information forms package and return them to Homeroom teacher asap.
