This year, as we continue to focus on
Sustainability and timely communication, we will be utilizing
electronic communication as much as possible. Examples of this
include: on-line Report Cards, direct email to families, on-line
permission slips, expanding the use of Edmodo, using the website,
Twitter, and Instagram to keep families up-to-date, instead of
‘newsletters’. More information will be available on these as we
progress through the year.
To support your long-term planning,
please visit “Important Dates”, “Strong Beginnings”, and the “School
Calendar”. We hope you are able to attend the Back to School
Barbeque on Tuesday, September 16th.
