May 29th- June 2nd

Spring Fling

Spring Fling is this Friday, June 2. Thanks to all parents who brought in items for the Pamper Me themed basket. Tickets will be going on sale later this week.

School Supplies  

School Supply Fees for the 2017-2018 School Year are now being collected. The fees will be $40 and these can be paid online, or by cash or cheque made payable to Glen Stewart Primary. Please ensure you have paid these fees by May 30, 2017.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Sunscreen and school

Please apply sunscreen to your child before they come to school if they need it.  The Canadian Cancer Society says “the best protection is to apply sunscreen generously 30 minutes before going outdoors” so putting it on at home works the best. The children don’t always remember to apply or it ends up in their eyes or all over their friend. Also, long sleeves and a hat is helpful too! Of course, this is me assuming the sun will come out sometime!

Normally I don’t have a problem with the children bring in toys but last week we had a lot of hurt feelings. This week no one is allowed to bring toys into the classroom until we understand sharing and how to express ourselves without hurting someone’s feelings. We started a friendship chain and we will spend time role playing and writing about how important friends are. I’ll let you know when the band is lifted! 🙂

Friday May 19th- A grade 5 class from Stratford (Mrs.Hughes/Mr.Dunphy) will be visiting our class!! They created short stories and will be reading them to us!! This is a wonderful opportunity for KB to see “big kid’s” writing.

Have a great week

The doors will open at 5:30 on Tuesday and please deliver your child to our classroom and then you can head to the gym to get your seat. There will be 2 classes on the stage at once and they will do a little story and song. KB is with a french class doing Pete the Cat and the children can wear whatever they/you want!

Message from the office! 

Glen Stewart Primary is one of several schools across the district that collects a school supply fee from each child and the classroom teacher purchases the supplies for the entire school year. The school supply fee is $40 per child.

Parents of this year’s Kindergarten – to – Grade 2 students are asked to make this payment by the end of May in one of the following ways:

  1. 1)  Starting Monday, April 17th, school fees may be paid online through our Hot Lunch program. This option will be available only until May 31st.
  2. 2)  Send $40 in to your child’s classroom teacher. The teacher will write you a receipt for the amount.

3) Pay in person through the office. Please ensure that you receive a receipt. Grade three students moving on to Stratford Elementary will receive separate information regarding school supply fees at the Grade 4 parent information session (date is TBA).

Thank-you
