Hello Division 16 and families!
Here we are, poised to begin a new school year, with so many exciting possibilities. I know we are all looking forward to seeing one another and catching up, hearing about summer holidays, exciting adventures and new learning.
As you know, school begins Tuesday, September 8. On this first day, Grade 1-7 students attend between 9 and 9:45 AM only. Kindergarten students begin their new year between 10 and 10:45 only. This will just be an opportunity to see who we have with us and if there are any changes in our school community. Students attend their LAST YEAR classes. We hope to meet our new classmates by the end of the week. If you are not able to attend on Tuesday but will be returning to school please call the school office to notify us of your short term absence. Wednesday will be a regular school day that begins at 9 AM and ends at 3:01 PM.
Division 16 – We will be working on our annual “Belonging Project” while we await the arrival of our new friends and classmates. Your homework is to get your mind thinking about activities that will share information about and welcome the new Division 16 students to our community. We can chat more about this when you return. Get lots of sleep! Drink lots of water! I can’t wait to see you all.
To our Grade 7s from last year, good luck to you. We will all be thinking of you on your first day of High School and sending you big hugs and wishes for joy and success. Remember to visit us often.
