Mount Edward Elementary

Call Home - September 16, 2018

Just a friendly reminder that milk orders are due back to the office by this Tuesday, September 18th.  Your cooperation with this would be greatly appreciated as the order has to be put in mid-week to our milk provider.

If any of you have not yet returned the updated Registration Form or the Consent for Publication of Student Personal Information and Student Work form, we ask that you do so asap.  It is imperative that we have up to date contact information on file at the school.  Also, if your contact information changes throughout the school year, please remember to contact the school to advise of such changes.

The home and school will be having their first meeting of the new school year on Tuesday, September 18th at 6:00 pm.  As always, everyone is encouraged to attend as they are always looking for new members and volunteers.

Curriculum night will be Thursday, September 20th from 6:00 to 7:30.  Parents and/or guardians are encouraged to attend to meet their child’s teacher and receive information on their child’s classroom routines, expectations and curriculum.

During  last year’s spring fling, the school community had an opportunity to vote on a new school logo.  On Thursday during curriculum night, our Home & School has arranged to have a t-shirt company here with sample sizes of t-shirts which will be available to order showing off our new logo.  An order form will be sent out the following week to all families.

Picture day will be held Friday, September 21st.   If your child is absent that day, the retake date is October 24th.

A reminder to all parents and guardians that in order to volunteer in schools within the Halifax Regional Centre for Education, individuals must have a current Criminal Records Check and Child Abuse Registry Search on file at the office.  If you would like a volunteer package sent home, please call the office and one will be sent home with your child.  A reminder that these checks are only valid for 3 years so if you suspect that yours has expired, please give the office a call at 902-435-8459 and we can check our database.
