Welcome Back!

Good afternoon,

 
To our grade 1 families, welcome to the new school year.  To our kindergarten families, welcome to the Forest Hill community.
 
Please remember to communicate your child’s after-school plans to their teacher.  Feel free to send a note with your child the first day of school or email our new administrative assistant, Mrs. Ruth Ellis (ruth.ellis@nbed.nb.ca). 
 
Our daily schedule is the same as last year.  Teachers will be on playground and drop-off duty at 7:55.  Children will be dismissed at 1:50 (12:05 Wednesday).  If you arrive later than 8:15, please ensure that you accompany your child to the office.
 
Kindergarten families, please remember that your child will attend September 5th or September 6th from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM (as per previous emails).  Please be mindful when picking up your child that you are on time as a late pick up can be upsetting for children.
 
Thank you and have a wonderful school year.

student entrepreneurship.
