Picture Day flyer (with student)
- September 17th – Western Day (Hot Dog Day) September 19th – Individual Photos
HOT DOG DAY
We will be having our first HOT DOG DAY for this school year on WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 17th. This hot dog day will NOT involve Kindergarten. This month’s theme is “WESTERN DAY”, which will be in conjunction with the Grade 7 fundraiser. The Grade 7’s are raising funds to help with the cost of some of the activities while they are at Timberline Ranch. If your child(ren) wishes to dress–up in this month’s theme, he/she is to
bring in a .50c donation. Order forms will go home tomorrow with the students.
INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PHOTOS
Individual student photos will be taken on Friday, Sept. 19th. Please ensure that your child is in full uniform on this day. Your child will be bringing home today the portrait selection sheet from Lifetouch. Whether you are ordering or not please complete the form and have your child give
the form to the photographer on picture day. Samples of the photos will be sent home via the school approximately 2 weeks after photo day. Please ensure that your child(ren) are present at school for these photos as they are the photos that are used for the school database.
The school website is now up and running. Please take time to check it out. The school calendar & school newsletter will be posted on the website along with any other important information. You can also follow us on Twitter & on Facebook.
CRIMINAL RECORD CHECK
Any parents who wish to volunteer at the school to work one on one with students and wish to volunteer to drive students must have a criminal record check. You are required to get a letter from the school and then you are to go the Surrey RCMP detachment to get the check down. There is no cost associated with the criminal check if you are volunteering.
Staff meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon. Dismissal is at 2:15 pm.
If your child is going to be late or absent, please call the office before 9:00 am., if calling prior to 8:30am, please leave a voicemail for the school secretary, do not leave a voicemail for the classroom teacher, as the
teacher may not have had time to check their voicemail When your child returns to school, please ensure that an Absentee Form is completed with the correct date of the absence, the reason for being absent and a parent’s signature. This form is to be given to the teacher so that we are able to keep an accurate record for the attendance audit. An Absentee form is attached and can also be found at the school office or downloaded off of the school website. If your child is going to be late, please have him/her sign in at the office and get a late slip.
