Final Bits of Information
The office is now closed for the summer. Ms. Spencer will be back the week of August 15th. If you have questions or want to register your child for the 2016-2017 school year, please call her then to set up an appointment. You may also visit the registration section in our quick links on the right.
2016-2017 School Year

2016-2017 School Fees
Included in the end-of-school envelope, sent home with your child, is a list of consumable fees and supervision fees for the 2016-2017 school year. School fees must be paid by the first week of September 2016, and cheques are still the preferred method of payment. A return envelope for your payment has been included. You can start sending in your payments as early as the week of August 22, 2016. If you cannot pay by the deadline, you must call the school to set up a payment plan. Failure to do so will mean that your name will be given to a collection agency in October 2016 and AN ADDITIONAL 15% WILL BE ADDED TO THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE.
Inside the end-of-school envelope, you will also find the school calendar, transportation information and a list of supplies that your child will need for the next school year. Ms. Blinn is having all her Grade 5 students go through their remaining supplies and will have a check list letting you know which items need to be replenished, instead of buying everything over again for Grade 6.
If the Transportation Department has assigned your child as a walker, and you have managed to get busing for him/her this year, you must fill out the transportation request form again for next year and every year. You can drop by and see Ms. Spencer as of August 15th to make these arrangements and fill out the form. Also, a few families have reported address changes that will take effect over the summer. Your transportation form may still have the old information, since they were published with this year’s info. Don’t worry! Your address has been updated in the system, and a modification will be sent from the Transportation Dept.
Summer Reading Tutor
Lise Huck will be available during the summer to tutor any child who is struggling with reading. You can contact her about arrangements and her fees at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great summer! See you in August!
