Week of September 24th, 2018

Hello again to our parents & guardians, This week brings our third full week (days 4, 5, 6, 7 & 1).  We’re hoping you’re getting the hang of our block schedule and school day routines, along with knowing where to find our school calendar, staff contacts and other documents for parents.  You just have to check the above tabs and you will find what you need.  First, congratulations to our Grade 9 Girls Volleyball team for winning 1st place in their first tournament of the season in Grande Prairie. This weekend coming up is a trip to Prince George for all of Jr. Volleyball teams. Go Coyotes! This week also has us hosting our Open House Evening on Wednesday, 26th from 6:30 to 8:00pm.  This is our opportunity to have parents and teachers meet and chat about the school year.  It also gives you the chance to become familiar with where your son/daughter’s classes are located.  We will have a FreshGrade table set-up at the intersection for parents who are learning how to use FreshGrade or have questions.  We are also providing our students’ favorite snack àwhat we call Barb’s Famous Cookies.  Our concession chef, Barb Croswell, makes and sells out of the near 10 dozen freshly baked cookies she makes for Break and Lunch every day.  Hope to see you there. Updates / Coming Up School Photo Day is on Monday, Oct 1st Our Call-Out System for Absences is now up & running.  Parents/guardians of students who are absent for one or more blocks during the school day will receive auto-calls and emails starting by 5:00pm daily.  Feel free to call our Office to double-check contact information or for inquiries regarding absences.  Students who are excused will not receive phone calls. Thanksgiving Weekend is coming up ~ there is no school on Monday, Oct. 8th Enjoy your week ~ we look forward to meeting you soon.    Diana Lindstrom
