New Registrations for 2021-2022 on hold

Hi community members and families interested in registering their child(ren) at our amazing school,

This is to inform you that as of right now we are not accepting new students until spaces become available for the 2021-2022 school year. For those who have children on our waitlist, you will be contacted in the order that the request was received. This process of contacting parents about spots will continue throughout the summer, up until school starts up again. There have been an overwhelming demand for students to attend our school, which is so wonderful to see, but unfortunately we do have to cap numbers so that we have spaces for our teachers and students.

As you wait, please make sure you register your child with their catchment school, if you are new to the area or they aren’t currently attending a school. For those students who are currently attending a school in our district, keep them there and if a spot opens up we will contact the school to have the child’s records transferred over to us.

For parents who have children attending our school and you know your child will not be returning in September for whatever reason, please let the school know so that we are aware of possible spaces.

Thanks!

Jared King — Principal — South Canoe School – Outdoor Learning Program

Sinks!

Big thanks to District Operations for installing sinks into Mrs. Scott and Mme Styles/Mrs. Van Damme’s rooms over the break 🙂 Will make hand washing so much easier!!

WELCOME BACK!

We are excited to have our students back with use and learning outdoors! Please make sure your child(ren) are dressed for the weather as teachers will be taking students out even more now. The school is a safe place to be and the District has done a great job making sure it is clean and ready for students and staff.

Happy Monday!

Jared

Parent/Student/Teacher Goal-Setting Conferences Nov 19

Just a reminder that this Thursday November 19th there are Goal-Setting Conferences for parents and students along with their teachers. This conference will be the first reporting period for students. The focus of this conference is on the progress of the student, strengths and needs for improvement, and setting one or two goals that the student can work on. The meetings are relatively short (15-20 mins) so please keep conversations on track and on the student. If there are other things you would like to discuss with the teacher please make an appt for another time to discuss as this time is for reporting on the student.

Thank you so much for your support and willingness to meet, whether via Teams or face-to-face. If you are meeting face-to-face we will make sure that safety protocols are being followed and met by all parties.

And a reminder that dismissal is at 11:07 am on Nov 19.

Cheers,

Jared King

Principal
