Class Re-Organization

Dear Parents/Guardians:
Re: Re-organization of Grade(s) 1-6:

As a result of the changes that have taken place between June and September in our school’s enrolment and in order to comply with the Ministry of Education’s Primary Class Size Compliance requirements, as well as acceptable class sizes in all classrooms, we have needed to make modifications to our classroom organizations.  All changes will take effect on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.

We have reorganized and deleted one classroom. Unfortunately, Ms. Michael who teaches 5/6 has been relocated to another school as of September 25th, 2017.  A letter was sent home today with all students explaining any homeroom class changes for our remaining teachers.

If your child’s classroom placement was changed, another letter was sent home letting you know today.  Also, your child was given the opportunity to visit in their new class this afternoon to meet their new teacher and class.  We will move permanently to our new organization on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.
 
Rest assured that in all of our classrooms, our teachers differentiate the instruction, assessment, and expectations based on each student’s individual strengths, needs and interests.  The new class placements have been carefully organized to support class dynamics and needs. Most students have been moved in groups and are familiar with the other children and teachers. We ask you to support these changes and help your children make the transition as smooth as possible.  
  
Thank you for your ongoing support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Joseph

Principal

January is Tamil Heritage Month

On October 5, 2016, Motion M-24 was passed in the Federal Parliament, officially proclaiming January of every year as Tamil Heritage Month.  Tamil Heritage Month aims to celebrate the richness of the Tamil language and its literature, as well as to highlight the vibrant traditions, histories, arts, and cultures of Tamil Canadians. In addition, it seeks to recognize the significant contributions of Tamil Canadians in key areas of social, cultural, economic, and political spheres. 
According to the Tamil calendar, January 14, 2017 is the start of the Tamil New Year during the month of “Thai”. On this day Tamils around the diaspora will be celebrating Tamil New Year and Thai Pongal, the Tamil harvest festival. 
Thai Pongal is the most important and widely-celebrated festival amongst Tamils around the globe. Thai Pongal is a time to give thanks for the blessings of the previous year and a time to look forward to the New Year. Pongal refers to rice cooked in milk and sweetened with chakkarai…

Character Assembly on "Integrity"

Our Character Assembly this month will be focusing on "Integrity". Throughout the month, our students have been discussing what integrity means to them in the classrooms and with their friends in the school yard. Our students are learning that to have integrity means to be truthful and sincere; to care for the well-being of others by how they treat each other. Displaying integrity is not always easy. It is one of our most difficulty character traits to live by and sometimes it takes years to truly understand what it means.

We look forward to honouring those students who have displayed this trait at our awards assembly on Wednesday, October 28th at 11:15 a.m.

Parents and guardians are welcome to join us.  We thank Mr. Clark and Ms. Croteau's grade 2/3s for hosting the assembly this month.


"Integrity is doing the right thing even if it's difficulty; even when no one is watching." 


"If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it."
