Our lunch ordering and fundraising events system is going GREEN! Instead of filling out paper forms, parents will now place their hot lunch orders online using the PAC hot lunch link to MunchaLunch.com where parents can register and will then be able to place orders for PAC hot lunch days. These will be on select Wednesdays, with the first being burrito day, September 28th. Check the calendar for pizza days, Greek, soups, and even a full turkey dinner.
We will begin on Tuesday, September 6th with grades 1 to 7 in the gym from 9 – 10am. Kindergarten students will check in at room 104 and get their appointment time for their interview on September 7th or 8th. Parents are welcome to join us for the hour as we go over some key information. Students do not need to bring anything with them the first day. Our theme for the upcoming school year is WHAT DO YOU DO WITH AN IDEA? Join us for an exciting first week back as we re-connect with one another and look at what ideas are possible when we all work together.
We will start with:
- Purposeful Play – look for your grade sign
- Welcome and Introductions
- Safety Information for Parents and Students
- Information from the Parents Advisory Council
- 10:00am dismissal for today
Kindergarten students will check in at room 104 and get their appointment time for their interview on September 7th or 8th. They are welcome to join us in the gym after that. Kindergarten students will remain on gradual entry for the following week and begin full days on Monday, September 19th.
On Wednesday, September 7th, students will return to the gym for Zumba at 9am and then we will move into multi-age classes for the remainder of the week. If you are able to collect any recycled materials over the summer, you are welcome to bring them to school to be part of the fun! Students only need to bring their lunch Wednesday to Friday. If you pre-ordered your school supplies, you will not need to bring anything else! Students will be in session from 9:00am to 3:00pm for the remainder of the week.
Students equipped with items found on our list of basic school supplies will have the core items needed to begin school in September. Parents should wait until after school has begun before sending these supplies with their children. Everything will NOT be needed during our first few days back. Please be aware that individual teachers may have additional supply requests throughout the year. Student Planners will be available for purchase for $9.00 in September.
We are very proud of all students who participated in this year’s grade 7 public speaking contest, and both students representing Douglas Road in the Central West Zone finished in the top three places. Now it’s on to the district final showdown for our top speaker – We’re all behind you!
Public speaking may be the number one fear out there, but with support & appreciation from peers and teachers, Douglas Road is a place where students are learning to make their voices heard.
