Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
Share Your Love of Reading! Volunteer for Wee Read!
Our first round of Wee Read has been a wonderful success! Volunteers read English picture books to 52 of our ECS and Grade 1 students helping them work on the pre-reading skills necessary to become a great reader. We looking for volunteers for our second round of reading beginning in January.
Volunteers are the heart of the program. They come to the school for 60 minutes once a week for eight consecutive weeks. If you deliver Hot Lunch or pick up your child after school, there are 30 minute sessions that can fit into your schedule! Volunteers read with two groups of two students. Each group works with the volunteer for 30 minutes. During the 30 minute session, volunteers read an English picture book, talk about the book they read, and play games that support literacy skills. Because each volunteer reads with the same children each week, a bond is developed. This makes the time together special, helping the children believe in themselves as readers.
For detailed information, check out Mme. Kulmatycki’s Literacy Support eTeacher Page.
