Good evening families. This is Grant Reilly, principal of Arthur Stevenson Elementary. Thank you to contributing to a wonderful first week back. It was terrific to see all of our students’ grins and smiles last week. We were allocated an additional teacher late Friday morning, so I am happy to report that all classes are finalized and students will remain in their present classes. Many thanks for your patience with this process. On Monday the first PAC meeting of the year will take place at 6:30 in our school Library. This is an important meeting with many plans being set out for the school year, so please attend if you can. As always, childminding will be available. Early this week, the school will send out verification forms. Please take the time to check these forms over, especially in regards to your email addresses, as individual teachers and myself use email as a form of communicating with our parent community. As well, a second school calendar will go home this week. Please disregard the one that came home last week, as there were errors with some of the dates. The corrected calendar is also on our school website. Cross country runners need to get their permission slip forms into Mr. Scott by Tuesday, as the first race of the year is Wednesday. Help us ensure a safe school community by not parking along the school fence on Bank Road close to the bike racks during school drop off and pick up. This area becomes too congested with our kids getting their bikes, and it becomes impossible to see if students are walking behind your vehicle. Thanks for your cooperation.
Have a tremendous week!
