Weekly Update October 16-19, 2017

This week is another short week for the kids! With the excitement of the Book Fair and Parent-Teacher Interviews, we're pretty sure the week is going to fly by!

Wednesday & Thursday: The Book Fair is open from 12:45 pm to 7 pm these nights due to Parent-Teacher Interviews. There will be a secretary in the office on both nights available to help out those parents who have not completed the Returning Student Registration form.

Friday: NO SCHOOL - PD Day


Our list is getting shorter but unfortunately we still have a list! Parents, if you have not yet logged into your PowerSchool account and completed the Returning Student Registration form, please do so ASAP. This is a mandatory form verifying emergency info, medical info, contact info and also contains several permission forms applying to the school year.

Weekly Update Oct. 2-6, 2017

This week is flying by! Our first Early Dismissal and Hot Dog Day was a success!

Thursday: Last day for Fall Food Drive donations! The Leduc & District Food Bank will be picking up our collection box on Friday, October 6th. Thank you to all those families that have made a donation!


A couple notes for parents:

- We still have 27 students without Parent PowerSchool accounts. These accounts can be used to check your child's attendance, make payments online, and, new this school year, sign permission forms. No paper copies will be available.

 

The office can provide you with the Access ID & Password required to start an account or to Add a Student to your existing account.

 

**Note: The PowerSchool App should not be used for elementary students.

 

 

- The Returning Student Registration form must be completed for ALL students. If you have not done so already, please log in to your PowerSchool account and complete this process. Reminders will be sent out every couple days until all outstanding forms have been completed. There are currently 88 outstanding registration forms.
