This year we are linking our Meet the Teacher Night with our Terry Fox Fundraising Drive. You are invited to attend a hotdog BBQ before meeting me tonight, 15 Sept 2014. All proceeds from the BBQ will be sent to the Terry Fox Foundation to help find a cure for cancer. The BBQ will run from 5:00 to 6:00pm. Hotdogs and water will cost $1 each. From 6:00 to 6:15 teachers and families will walk or run the track to symbolize Terry's selfless run to raise money to find a cure. At 6:15, parents can visit their child's classroom. The evening will end at 7:00pm. I look forward to seeing each of you there.
The Student Information Verification Forms are going home today. Please check over your child's form, and update any information that has changed. Please make sure that you sign the form, even if all of the information is correct. Please return the form to the school as soon as possible.
I would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding when filling out all of the order forms that have been coming home over the past little while. I understand that it can be overwhelming, especially if you have more than one child. Please make sure when ordering Milk, Pizza and Pitas that you seperate your payments for these items. Orders for these programs are processed by different groups of parents or staff members, and it can be difficult to seperate out the money that goes to each account. Once again, thanks in advance for your understanding.
I would like to welcome each of you to another exciting year at Arthur Public School, and to Mr. Sidlar's grade 4 class. I am extremely excited, and looking forward to a great year of fantastic learning. I have a lot of great activities planned, and can't wait to get started. Please let me know if I can do anything to make your year better. Let's make this the best year that we possibly can!
Mr. E. Sidlar
During a recent staff meeting we were introduced to an exciting new communications tool. Remind is an online application that allows me to send out quick text messages or emails to people who wish to subscribe to the service. By using it, I would be able to quickly and efficiently send out messages such as "Remember that our class is going skating tomorrow" or "The field trip tomorrow is leaving at 8:30am". It would not replace my website as a communication tool, but would be a faster way for me to let you know important information. Please note that Remind is for communication out only. You will not be able to respond to any of the messages that you recieve. Also, please note that this service is to be used by parents only. Students will not be allowed to subscribe on their personal devices.
I would encourage you to sign up for this service if you are a fan of text messages or emails on your mobile device. Please be advised that standard text messaging rates will apply according to your mobile device contract. To sign up for my Remind please view the document below and follow the instructions to subscribe.
