Parent Peek at the Week

Week of June 22nd, 2020

From us to you.....

What a roller coaster this year has been! Thank you to all our amazing families and community that have supported us through all the ups and downs. We couldn't have done it without 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!

A new "hub" for all important school information

Today we're excited to launch a new "hub" for all important school information - Welcome to Mrs. Sampson's Office. By clicking on the link below, you'll be able to find all kinds of important information about our school - busing info, school hours, staffing, our Code of Conduct, lunch orders, etc. Check back from time to time as new items will be added over the coming weeks. If you have any suggestions on what could be part of my "office" - please let me know. Here is the link to take a peek:

A few other bits of information......

Report Cards

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 jennifer_sampson@kprdsb.ca. Thank you!


Kindergarten Registration

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.


Recess Guardians

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:
