Mme. Tanner's return
Please note that Mme. Tanner will be transitioning back to work over the course of the next three weeks.  Her return to teaching will be gradual therefore Mme. Baisley will remain until Mme. Tanner is able to take on all planning and instruction for all classes.  This provides a unique opportunity for students and teachers to be part of a classroom whereby they'll experience co-teaching, and a lower teacher to student ratio.

Volunteers needed
Safe Drop Off Data Collection
In collaboration with our Parent School Support Committee, we are once again re-examining our safe drop off to try to try and determine what improvements might be made to increase the flow and eliminate the amount of time parents are waiting in line to drop off. This task will require multiple parent volunteers to collect a variety of data over the course of 2-3 weeks, starting on March 20th from 7:40-8:05.  If you are available to assist, please let us know by using the “Contact Us” tab on our website.  Indicate SAFE DROP OFF DATA COLLECTION and your preferred date(s) to volunteer.
We will be looking at a variety of data to help guide us including a bus survey that the PSSC is developing.  We know that approximately 700 of our 870 students are designated as bus students.  However, we also know that far more parents are choosing to drop off instead.  The school’s drop off area was designed by an architect based on the school having a very small “walk to school zone.”  Consultation has happened with Anglophone East School District, the City of Moncton, the Department of Early Childhood and Education, Codiac RCMP, and the Department of Supply & Services.  The school has also reached out to Dr. Louis Malenfant, a leading researcher in the area of pedestrian safety.

Volunteers are appreciated
On behalf of the entire staff, I would like to thank the Home & School Executive and all their volunteers for a splendid Staff Appreciation week.  Despite Mother Nature having hijacked last week, the staff felt special and appreciated with the kind gestures and gifts.

Volunteers from the school community can contribute so much to the culture of a school.  If you or someone you know is interested in either coaching or running a school based club, please visit the documents section of our website where you'll find a request for volunteers document.

Have a great weekend and enjoy this mild winter weather!

Report card and Dec Newsletter
Report cards went home today.  As the new report card system was very different from our previous system, it was a steep learning curve, from start to completion.  We want to ensure that any errors we may have made in the comment sections are corrected.  If you notice an error or omission, feel free to let your child's teacher know so that it's corrected for their student file.

On another note, a short December Newsletter with important information can be found on our website under the news tab at the top.

Have a great weekend.

We are asking everyone make use of the School Cash Online site to pay for your order, then simply return your completed or4der form to the school with your child on or before November 30. Delivery time is estimated to be 3 weeks from the time the order is placed, so we are hopeful we can get the clothing to everyone before Christmas. There is a space on the order form to initial should you wish to purchase as a gift and have your order held at the school for pickup, instead of having the order sent home with your child when it arrives.

First Day of School News
Fortunately enough our School Connects messaging system is up and running again as of late yesterday.  Due to it being offline for the week teachers were unable to set up their classes to send a message to their students over the weekend. 

On our website we will be posting all grade levels with room locations.  Many teachers are in the same classrooms or location as last year.  Each teacher will have their own list posted outside their classroom door.  All students will be coming inside on the first day.  Due to there being already 720 students registered, we would ask that parents help with the congestion and traffic in the following ways.

1.  Send your children on the bus if they are a bus student.  An adult on site will help them find their classroom.
2.  Walk your child to school.
3.  Carpool

All teachers without a homeroom will be available on site to help with directions and questions.

On another note, our Online School Cash payment system will be up and running shortly.  You will either receive an email alert or a message from the school when it's available.  We highly encourage online payments as it greatly reduces the amount of cash and cheques that our staff needs to handle.

We wish everyone a great long weekend and look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday morning.
