PARENT/STUDENT/ TEACHER INTERVIEWS Our next set of student-parent-teacher conferences are quickly approaching. The dates are Tuesday, March 26 and Thursday, March 28. The interviews will be running from 4:00-7:00 pm without a break. This also means that the hours of the BookFair will reflect those of the interviews. We want to make sure you are aware of the interview date and will be able to find a time that works for you. All the parents of K-4 are asked to attend an interview. Parents of Grade 5 students who require an interview will be contacted to set up an interview time. If you don't get a call and would like an interview, please contact the school office at 306-823-4313, to set up a time to meet. Parents of grade 6-12 students are asked to follow the same format as the fall interviews and meet with the teachers as they become available during the interview sessions. We look forward to meeting with you. Note: Mrs. Knorr-Bingham will only be available for interviews on Tuesday, March 26.
LOST AND FOUND ITEMS
In an attempt to control the huge amount of items in our lost and found, we have washed and hung up shirts, jackets and sweaters on a rack so the students can hopefully pick out any that belong to them. They will be on display for parent teacher interviews. If they aren't claimed in a week or so, they will be sent to the Interval Store or some other charity.
Student fee notices are automatically sent to each parent when they sign up for SchoolCash online. We encourage you to pay for them online but if you do not want to do that, please sign up anyway as that way you will get the notifications of student fees, hot lunches, new yearbook arrival, etc. etc.
Notices for unpaid fees were sent out with the first report cards.
** Students with outstanding school fees will not be allowed to take part in school trips whether curricular or extra-curricular (sports).
The Milk Prize Program started on Jan. 31. Students will get a scratch ticket when they purchase milk or get one from their milk card. Some of the tickets will have a large letter on them from A-F. They bring that winning ticket to the office to claim their prize. The prizes include: free milk, tubers, backpacks, lunch bags, pop ups and lanyards for a total of 63 prizes. Quite a few students have won prizes already!
