General Information

All of the Kindergarten to Grade 8 students are required to have and use agendas.  These agendas are used as a daily message book and organizational tool, where assignments and events are recorded.  Parents are asked to read and sign the agendas daily, and help students make sure the agendas are taken back to school each day.  Parents are welcome to write notes about days they know the student will be away for appointments, etc., and to share information with the teacher.

The Principal’s message is updated regularly on our Edsby River of News. Please check for updates, and reach out to us with any questions you may have.
