“Welcome back. I hope that you had a great summer. For the grade 6 students, for the grade 10 students from Stockholm, and for any students new to our community, I extend a warm welcome to our school.
We have no new teachers this year, but we welcome back Ms. Copp and Ms. Chewka from their maternity leaves. We also welcome Jessie Shirley and Tristyne Straub who will be interning with Mr. Marchand and Mr. Walker until December.
Extracurricular activities are already up and going. I encourage all students to join an activity. It will be fun, and furthermore, there is a lot of research which shows that students do better at school when they are more involved in its activities.
We will be sending Data Verification sheets home with students. This is something we do every year. The point of this is to update any biographical information that has changed. Examples would be any changes in phone numbers, email addresses, land location, or marital status. It is important to us that we have accurate and up-to-date information.
Talking about current email addresses, soon we will be sending out the usernames and passwords to log on to ConnectEd to parents who have not yet used it. With this program, you can track your child’s grades and attendance, among other information. You can access this from the tab on the left hand side on our school’s website. If you have forgotten your log-in information, call the office and we can reset your account. But we need a current email to do this.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the staff. My door is always open. I hope you all have another great year at school.”
