Grade 4 Transition Letters to MiddleSchool

Dear Grade 4 parents, you were emailed on Friday a letter indicating which Middle School your child will attend for grade 5.


The majority of our students will be attending Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School (OLPH). More information regarding options and late entry French Immersion will be forthcoming.


Students that are designated for St. Theresa can potentially attend OLPH, you must contact the Principal of OLPH school: Mr. Alyre Morin . (780) 467-5631


St. Theresa School boundaries are closed and they can only accept resident students. If you received a letter then you are a resident student.


Also, St. Theresa students would have received a second email asking parents to pick options for their grade 5 child. Options open right away.


Please call the school if you need any assistance in understanding your child's placement for grade 5.

FLEX OPTIONS OPEN ON TUESDAY

February 12, 2020


Dear Parents:


Madonna’s Flex Programming Option’s Session 3 is starting!


This is an opportunity for students to be given choices based on their individual interests.

Through the use of project-based learning activities and “flex” time, teachers are able to provide

students with extended learning opportunities. “The fundamental goal of education is to inspire all students to achieve success and fulfillment, and reach their full potential by developing the competencies of Engaged Thinkers and Ethical Citizens with an Entrepreneurial Spirit, who contribute to a strong and prosperous economy and society.” (Ministerial Order on Student Learning #001/2013)


Our third scheduled Flex session will run on Fridays - Block 8 & 9 (1:30 to 2:40 pm). Sessions are on the following dates: February 21st and 28th and March 13th and 20th, 2020.


Sessions will open for bookings on Tuesday, February 18th at noon. Sign up is online at www,schoolbookings.net using event code faxwd.


Session availability is based on a first come first serve basis and are limited in numbers. We

may be offering some of the same choices during other flex sessions throughout the year based

on popularity.


Thank-you to Parent Council for their continued financial support of these programming

opportunities.


If you have any questions, please contact the office at 780-467-7972.


Mrs. Antoniuk and Mrs. Lindbeck
