Victory News – September 15, 2023
We hope that this message finds you well and that our students are enthusiastic about their start to the new school year. As we embark on this journey together, let’s embrace learning, growth, and collaboration. Your dedication and curiosity make our school community special and we look forward to seeing you at our Open House on September 21st.
Good attendance and punctuality are important in order to maximize school achievement and are good habits to develop for later in life. Please remember to contact the school office when your child is going to be absent or late for school. Attendance is taken in the morning and afternoon of each school day. Students are marked absent if they are not in class on time. Students arriving late must check in at the office so the office attendance register can be amended to show a late arrival.
Our first PA Day takes place on Monday, September 18th.
We welcome families to visit our Open House that will be taking place from 5:30 to 7:00 pm on Thursday, September 21st. We look forward to seeing you! This event is a lovely opportunity to explore our classrooms, meet our dedicated teachers and discover the rich learning experiences that await your child.

Celebrating special events and occasions at school is a great way to create a positive atmosphere. We ask that you consider celebrating with non food items such as pencils, stickers, books, puzzles or board games for indoor recess. Food items come with risks for our students with life threatening food allergies or medical conditions. To reduce the risk of student exposure to allergens any food items brought in must be approved by the classroom teacher prior to the event. If approved please ensure that all ingredients are clearly listed on the food item.
DROP OFF/PICK UP FROM SCHOOL
There are several NO PARKING zones around the school. Please be aware and adhere to the bylaw when dropping off and picking up students from school. This helps to ensure the safety of our students. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
