SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR
Supply lists for Back to School Solutions were sent home with students.
There is no obligation to order your school supplies this way, but it is an option. The school does get a small percentage of all the orders back.
If you are ordering this way, please send your order back to the school with a cheques attached payable to Value Drug Mart and Associates by June 21 if ordering through the school. You can choose to order online and then choose only the items you need. Your child may have some supplies left from previous years so you can order only specific items. Kits are then shipped to the school in August and arrive with labels that have your child's name on them, to put on all the supplies.
Please keep the supply list if you are not ordering this way as it will be the only supply list sent home. The lists will be posted online at the end of June.

Tips To Avoid the Summer Learning Slide
1. Make Summer Learning Fun
A day trip to the zoo, a walk in the park, or sitting by a pool can all become learning moments during a child's summer. Incorporate things like counting steps, timing activities, or learning about wildlife to keep children's brain active and improve things like memory and recall.
2. Get into A Routine
The best way to ensure you and your child commit to summer learning is to make a routine and stick to it. If there is a time every day that you know you will be with your child, use that time to incorporate learning.
Make a list of books for your child to read over the summer. Ensure they are the appropriate reading level and have your child keep a journal of words that are new to them.
Math can be one of the easiest subjects for children to slide back in during the summer. Download or buy math workbooks and have your child complete a page each week.
5. The Right Kind of Screen Time
There is no way to avoid it, so make the most of it! Download educational apps on your child's device and make sure they are getting the most out of their screen time.
