Arthur Stevenson Families,
I hope you enjoyed your summer break and are as excited to get back to school as the staff is to see you again!
The first day of school for students in grades 1-7 is Tuesday, September 6th. Tuesday is a short day with school beginning at 10:30 and students being dismissed at 12:00. All students on Tuesday will report to their teacher from last year. Students new to our school will go to the library. Students going into Kindergarten do not attend Tuesday as they have an individual gradual entry plan. If you are unsure of your kindergarten child's gradual entry plan, please phone the school.
Wednesday, September 7th is the first full day of school for students in grades 1-7. On this day, students will be put into grade groupings with peers their age. Students will spend this day reviewing school expectations with our ROCKS behaviour matrix. We hope to have our enrolment known by Wednesday, so that we can begin finalizing student placements in classrooms for the upcoming year. Please be patient with us this year as we have experienced a number of registrations that could impact how many classrooms our school has this year.
This also means that it is very important for kids to be at school on Tuesday and Wednesday so that we do in fact know how many kids we have in our school. Please be sure to call the school if there is a circumstance whereby your child will not be attending these first couple of days.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
