Today was a beautiful day for our walk. A very successful walk-a-thon. Thank you for your support. Students enjoyed walking with their friends and receiving a visit from Sparky the fire dog. We really appreciated the support from our families, the Torbay Volunteer Fire Department and the RNC. It was pretty exciting.
A reminder to Kindergarten families that there is no school for Kindergarten students tomorrow. We will be having our last KinderStart session.

Early French Immersion ● French Immersion is a program designed for non-francophone children. Parents/guardians interested in registering a child for the French Immersion Kindergarten Program must select their zoned school. If Early French Immersion is not offered in the zoned school, parents/guardians must select the school closest to their place of residence that offers Early French Immersion (EFI). ● Early French Immersion Kindergarten registration takes place on a first-come first served basis for a limited number of seats. Applications will be dated and time-stamped upon submission of the online application form. All students are entitled to a program in English so if your child is waitlisted for EFI at a school that is not your zoned school, space will be held at the zoned school. Parents/guardians will be provided with further information once class lists for EFI are finalized in September. ● For a list of schools offering the Early French Immersion Program, click here. ● For more information about the French Immersion Program, click here. Additionally, a presentation is also PROVIDED HERE for review. Kinderstart/Kindergarten Inquiries If you have any questions regarding the Kinderstart/Kindergarten program and registration process and details, please contact your zoned school administrator for assistance or email your questions to email@example.com.

School Development Surveys are conducted annually to gather feedback from students, staff, and parents/guardians to inform the school development process. The survey results will be provided to your child’s school and used with other data to identify the school’s strengths and challenges. Your child’s school will then create and implement a plan to build on successes and address areas of challenge.
The survey is anonymous, which means that we cannot connect your survey responses to you. We encourage everyone to participate so that we have the most accurate representation of family perceptions at your school.
