Announcement – November 14, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians:

It’s hard to believe that our first term is a little more than 2/3 over.  We have been settled into our classrooms for 4 weeks now; I thank you again for your patience and understanding as we worked with the day school during the construction. Our students are settling into a routine too, and are enjoying many different projects and learning activities in their classrooms.

We want to remind parents that morning Arabic classes begin at 9:30 a.m. and finish at 12:00 p.m. Please note that there is NO TEACHER SUPERVISION before 9:15 a.m.  In the interest of student safety, please do not drop off your children at school before 9:15 a.m. There will be an adult on duty between 9:15 and 9:30 to meet the students at the drive-through area at the front doors. DO NOT PARK in front of the school. If you need to come into the school with your child, please park your car in the newly-enlarged parking lot.

It is also important to remember that when a child arrives late, it is disruptive for the teacher and the class, and for your child’s learning.  If your child is late, they must sign in at the office and get a Late Slip to take to their teacher. With the exception of Kindergarten classes, students will then go to their classroom on their own. For security reasons, no parent is allowed to go to a classroom or wander through the school.

There are no classes on November 21st as the teachers have a PD day. After that, we have only 4 more Saturdays left this year. Our last class is on December 19th. We start again on January 9th, 2016.

The instructors are always happy to speak with you regarding the progress of your child; however, this meeting must take place before 9:30 a.m. or after 2:30 p.m. You can arrange this meeting either at the office or by phone or email with the instructor.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. You can contact me by email at sue.boudreau@ocdsb.ca, by phone at the Woodroffe Avenue Public School phone number listed above, or by coming in to the office on Saturday mornings.

Thank you for your attention to the important matters listed above.
