This Week’s Happenings

The highlight of the week was definitely our Meet the Teacher Night. Thank you to all those parents who were able to come and meet their child’s teacher and see their classroom. Communication between home and school is important to us. If at any time you have a question or a concern do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher through a note in the agenda or a phone message (all extensions can be found on the school website.) In addition

This week was all about reorganization. On Friday 101 of our Pumas in grades one to seven moved classes or had changes of teachers. One student commented that is like the first day of school all over again. We are now set and there are no more changes to classes. I will be posting an updated list of staff on our website later this weekend. We are looking forward to hiring a new teacher for our 5/6 class and for day fours in kindergarten.

We have begun the school year with an emphasis on the Board motto of `Learn, Lead, Inspire – Together`. This week a number of our students showed

I’d like to take a few minutes to formally say thank you on behalf of the teaching staff. Our days
at school are often a flurry of activity and it is nice to have a moment to slow down this evening
and express our appreciation.

Our school board’s vision statement begins as follows, “Students will attain individual excellence
through dynamic programming provided by an effective staff and supported by a committed
community.” You, the volunteers, play a significant role in Primrose’s “committed community.”

June is an extremely busy month as we wrap things up for the school year.

 

This week our students in grades three and six wrote EQAO.  These provincial tests help us set goals for the school and the board.  Thank you to the numerous volunteers who helped scribe for us.

 

We would like to sincerely congratulate all of our Pumas who participated in the local production of The Wizard of Oz.  A number of students were able to see the play and were amazed at the

It is hard to believe that next week is June.  Where has our year gone?  With the warmer weather we would like to remind you about bringing hats, sunglasses and sunscreen to school as we are outside several times during the day.  Also, we would like to remind you to send your children with proper footwear.  We are an active school and at recess students run around and play on the climbers.  Flip-flops make these activities dangerous as they don’t provide a lot of

The highlight of this week was definitely Thursday’s Turn the Tide, our Eco Arts Night.  Congratulations to our Eco Team for all their work getting ready for the evening.  Our EcoMoms ( Shelagh, Nicole H, Kelly, Jennifer, Megan, and Kerrie Lee) give countless hours to get our Pumas thinking about our environmental footprint and to inspire our youngest environmentalists.  We are blessed to have Jan Helps teaching art to every student at Primrose.  The pieces that she had students create were fabulous.  The
