Terry Fox Run and school info

 

Terry Fox Run

From Sept. 21st – Sept. 30th we will collect donations for the Terry Fox Foundation. We are trying to reach our goal of 2 dollars per student! We will have collection boxes in each classroom for any donations.

On Friday, Sept. 25th each division will participate in a Terry Fox Run. This year will feel a little different as we will not have a school wide event but rather have cohorts run a scheduled times throughout the day.

Please encourage your child to wear red and/or white on Friday!!!

 

Verification Forms

Student Information Verification are being sent home today with all students.  Please check your child’s backpack for the (pink) forms.  Please review and indicate any changes to the information and return to the classroom by Friday, September 25th.

 

Absences & Late Arrivals

If your child will be late or absent from school, please call the school office at 604-517-6020 by 8:50 a.m. To keep our students safe by verifying student attendance as quickly as possible each day, it is important that parents and guardians use this central reporting system.  Voicemail messages can be left 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your convenience.  Please do not use email to report student absences as not all emails are monitored regularly.  If we do not receive a telephone call, staff will call home to verify your child’s absence.

If you are bringing your child to school late, please go to the school office for a late slip before going to the classroom. This is very important so that the office knows that your child has arrived safely at school.
