Home / School News / This Week @ Journey June 7-11

 

First Day of School.  An email was also sent to all 6-8 families for the 2021-22 school year.  The routine is similar to this year’s start up with the exception that grade 6 come in the afternoon instead of the morning. 

Tuesday- September 7 – 1:00-3:00- Grade 6 students ONLY– check the class list on the windows at the front doors to see who their teacher for the 2021-22 year will be.  Students can then proceed to the Gym to meet their teacher and classmates.  Students will be welcomed by Principal, Pam Gerrits and Vice-Principal, Katrina Abell and then be guided to their neighbourhood and classroom.  Students will not attend Sept. 8.

 

Wednesday- September 8- 9:00-11:00 – Grade 7 Students ONLY – students will arrive to the school and check the posted class lists on the windows by the front door for their name and teacher. Once they know whose class they are in and the room #, they will make their way to their neighbourhood and classroom once the bell rings. Students will not attend Sept. 7.

Learning Commons Update: We had a wonderful year in library! You’ll be happy to know that our students read a lot this year. Since September our library lent out a total of 6,599 books!  We are asking that students return any remaining books no later than June 15th. Any books that remain overdue beyond June 15th will be marked as “lost” and an emailed invoice for the cost of the book will be sent to home. We appreciate your diligence in making sure all our precious books make their way home safely.

Daily Health Check – please remember to follow the DHC and not send your child to school if they are not well.  If a student becomes unwell, or tells us they are unwell, at school, they will wait for pick up in our Supervision Room which is sanitized between guests.  Up to two students can be in the room at one time (physically distanced and masked).  Masks – please continue to provide and remind your child to bring a mask to school each day.
