School has closed for the summer months but we are already planning for September!
Parents, please expect an email detailing the first week of September and school start-up process, in late August. We have been busy planning a first week that will build community and assist our students in acquiring skills that will help them be successful in their school year. Please note that students will be grouped in several ways that first week, with students assigned to their 2016-17 classrooms by Friday, September 9.
School opens Tuesday, September 6 with all Grade 1-6 students attending for one hour, 8:48-10:00 am. Students should return to their last year’s classroom for attendance and then will rotate through various groupings. We will welcome new students to Mamquam entering grades 1-6, in our Library Learning Commons and then take them to meet with their peers for the remainder of the week. The remainder of the week, September 7 on will be full day school for grades 1 – 6 (8:48-3:00 daily)
Our incoming Kindergarten students will have a gradual entry to school that first week. They too will attend the first day, September 6, for an hour, from 10:30-11:30 am. Their schedule for remainder of the week will be: Sep. 7 – 10:45-12:00, Sep. 8 – 10:45-12:00, Sep. 9 – 1-3:00 pm, Sep. 12 – 8:48-12:00 and September 13 they begin their first full day of school, 8:48-3:00. We will provide grouping lists and classrooms for the first week’s learning activities and post them in our front foyer so that parents can escort children to the classrooms.
Parents don’t forget to enjoy our garden this summer, watch how fast it grows and pull a weed or two! MESY is still looking for volunteer help with watering over the summer months (the perk is you also get to harvest!). If you can help out a day or two, please sign up with Michi at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a FANTASTIC summer and we look forward to seeing all of our families in September!
