Progress Reports

Progress Reports are coming home this week. These reports are intended to give you an idea of how your child is pogressing in their learning skills and growth as a learner. Focussing on learning skills is important, because we know that good learning habits and effort will lead to success! This is a good time to help your child think:

Where am I now? (What can I do? What am I doing well?)

What are my next steps?

We value home school communication. Please return the bottom portion of page 2 to provide comments and if you wish, request to discuss your child's progress

Bus Reminders


  • Be at your stop 5 minutes before scheduled pick-up in the morning (Drivers cannot wait for children to arrive to the stop.)
  • Wait at your designated stop in a safe place, back from the side of the road.
  • If you need to cross the street to get on the bus, always wait until the bus has come to a complete stop. Look for the stop arm to come out and for the flashing red lights. Watch the driver. When the driver is assured that all traffic has stopped he/she will signal for you to cross the street – but continue to watch for traffic yourself. Always walk, don’t run.
  • Take your seat promptly and sit properly, facing forward at all times.
  • Place bags and backpacks in your seat, keep the aisle of the bus clear at all times.
  • Windows should only be opened with the permission of the driver.
  • Always keep your head, hands and arms inside the bus.
  • Throwing objects inside or outside of the bus is not permitted.
  • Talk quietly; the driver needs to concentrate to safely drive the bus.
  • Eating and drinking (this includes chewing gum) is not allowed on school buses at any time.
  • Students in Grade 3 and under should be greeted by an adult or older sibling.
  • Always follow the bus driver’s instructions and treat your driver with respect and courtesy.
