School Calendar for 2016-17.
K-7 School Supply List 2016-17 *If pre-packaged supplies were ordered they will be available on September 7th.
We are pleased that Mr. Lee will be leading our grade seven band in the fall. GRADE 7's will be participating in BAND during school time, and will be required to have an instrument, and purchase assigned music. Planning is already underway. If parents wish to rent instruments from Tapestry, they will be hosting a rental evening at Cliff Drive on Monday, September 12th from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. If you need more information or have questions regarding rentals, please contact Bob Mullet (Tapestry) at email@example.com. Please check the following link regarding rentals - notice.
Cliff Drive Obstacle Build
Our PAC has completed fundraising for our obstacle course addition to the playground. We need to recruit a team of Cliff Drive parents to build it together, as a great, fun community event! The build dates are Friday, August 26th and Saturday, August 27th. If you are able to help out, please contact PAC member Tara at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support!
Return to School - First Week Times
The first day of school for 2016-17 is Tuesday, September 6th. Classes in Grades 1 through 7 will be in session from 9:00 - 12:00 noon. Regular classes begin on Wednesday, September 7th from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Our Kindergarten students and their parents received a specific gradual entry schedule in June.
First Week Procedures
We will once again be following the procedure of having students return to the classrooms they had in 2015-16, for the first few days, or possibly the first week of school. It is only after the final confirmation of student numbers that we will be able to move students into their new classroom for this school year. Students are asked to enter/exit through the same doors that they used last school year. Our new Grade 1 students will begin their morning in their former classrooms. Kindergarten will have Open House, when the Grade 1's are in the Library. All new registrants in Grades 1 through 7, including those in Late French Immersion, will meet Mrs. Chapman in the gym, and they will spend the day with their grade peers.
Stay tuned for our September newsletter once school is in session. I look forward to meeting many of you on the first day of school - and many more during the PAC Welcome Back BBQ and Meet the Teacher evening on Thursday, September 22nd!
