LIBRARY CLOSED & LOST BOOK CHARGES

The library is now closed and students will no longer be able to sign out books from the library.  If your child has a library book at home, please return it immediately, so that we can complete our inventory.

Also, we will be sending home a notice to those children who have outstanding books and if you can’t find the book, please send back the amount of money that will be stated on the form.

CENTRAIDE BACK TO SCHOOL SHARING STORE PROGRAM

We will be sending home an information package to all parents about the Back to School Sharing Program.  This program is to help low income families to obtain school supplies at a reduced cost.  All applications will now go directly to Centraide.  The information package will inform you of the dates for the Back to School Store.

PRESENTATION AT PIERRE ELLIOT TRUDEAU ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Preschoolers know much better than they behave, and their good intentions can be short lived. There is no better test to adult maturity than the immature ways of the preschooler. The secret to taking care of them is to understand their immaturity isn’t a mistake but part of their developmental design.

Please join us June 7th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm for this parent workshop discussing the Preschooler Personality.
