June 3, 2013,
Heading into the final month of the school year is a wonderful time to pause and reflect on the success and growth of our students not only academically, but socially and emotionally, as well. As you know, our school is a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. Our students have spent the year learning about Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It has been a wonderful fourth year of learning and growing with the 7 Habits.
It is also a time to remember that the school year is not quite over yet. Our grade three and six students continue to write the Provincial Achievement Tests. The test dates are outlined in the newsletter calendar. The expectations that we have for student behaviour and academic achievement do not wane through the month of June. The bar was set high for our students at the beginning of the school year, and it remains there now.
Back in February I invited all parents and guardians to submit feedback about the school and its programs to help us plan for the 2013 - 2014 school year. In an effort to best serve our students, we strive to be responsive to their needs. I would like to thank those of you who took the time to respond to the survey. The results are included in this newsletter.
All progress reports will be posted to SchoolZone on June 28th. Every parent and guardian has received unique logon credentials (logon user ID and password) which allowed them to access SchoolZone at https://schoolzone.epsb.ca If you need assistance to log into your SchoolZone account, please contact the school.
This is the time of year where families are considering schools for next year. If you have questions regarding Kindergarten registration or other registrations for 2013 - 2014, please give our administrative assistant, Mrs. Scheetz, or me a call. We will be very happy to help answer any questions about the school and its many student supports such as the Leader in Me, the Daily Snack Program, APPLE Schools Program, intramurals and other extra-curricular activities.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the school.
