School Life

Agenda Books

In an effort to save costs for families, we are trying new agenda styles.  Kindergarten students do not have agendas, they have communication bags.  Grade 1-8 students will be provided with an agenda.  Homework and important notes will come home in the agenda, which will be used as a communication tool between teachers, parents and students. The cost for the agendas is $3.00.  For our Kindergarten students, the communication bag cost is $3.00.

Athletics

Students are involved in daily physical activity and school teams that include; soccer, volleyball, basketball, cross country running and track and field. For more information please see our Clubs and Sports page.

Attendance Expectations

Punctuality and regular attendance on the part of the student is important to the process of learning. Both the individual student and his or her classmates may be impacted as a result of this issue. Parents will be contacted when late attendance and punctuality become a concern. Board attendance counsellors will be involved if attendance and punctuality do not improve after parent contact has been made by the school.

When your child is going to be absent from school, for any reason, please contact the school at 905-433-0331.
