Parent Peek at the Week
Week of June 22nd, 2020
From us to you.....
At Kawartha Heights we are all so sad, not to be able to say good-bye in person. Here is a little something from us, to let all our students and families know how much we care and look forward to seeing you in September!
Welcome to some new (and returning) faces!
Please join us in welcoming Ms. Autumn Landry to our school. Ms. Landry is moving from John M James PS in Bowmanville and she'll be teaching our Grade 5/6 Class this September. Welcome to our great school!
We are pleased to welcome Ms. Jennifer Richardson to Kawartha Heights. Ms. Richardson will be joining us from Dr. GJ MacGillivray School in Bowmanville, and she'll be joining the Year 1/2 Kindergarten Educator Team with Mrs. Charmley. Welcome to our community!
While not new to our school, we are excited that Mrs. Holt will be returning to us in October. Mrs. Holt has spent most of the last year on maternity leave - we can't wait to have her back with us!
A new "hub" for all important school information
A few other bits of information......
I know everyone is anxious to get their report cards. Hopefully you received the School Messenger email this past week. In case you missed it, the letter is included below. You will access report cards electronically this year - on Thursday, June 25th.
Moving Over the Summer?
If your family happens to be moving over the summer - please let us know at your earliest convenience. We have already created classes based on who is coming and who is going - so the most current information is always the best! Just email Mrs. Sampson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Will you or someone you know be registering your child for Year 1 Kindergarten with us next year? Now is the time! We want to support this important transition, but we can only include you if we know you are registered. Please ensure you complete this critical process as soon as you can. You can register at: http://kprdsb.ca/en/our_schools/resources/elementaryprograms/kindergarten.html
Kawartha Heights Family Dashboard
Our last Kawartha Heights Family Dashboard is now ready for you! You can find the link below, but you can also access it any time in the top left corner of your child's classroom homepage on Edsby.
As many of you may know, we run the Recess Guardians program here at Kawartha Heights. Recess Guardians trains junior grade students to support younger ones in having fun, learning new games and cooperating at recess. This summer, the Recess Guardians organization is offering family active8 boxes for summer fun in your own backyard! Kits are $49.99 each and give you games and ideas to try for the whole summer. Please go to https://joinactive8.com/ for more information. There is also a short video below:
