For the Week of Sept 25, 2023
Working together; succeeding together.
Over the next few weeks we will be showcasing different parts of Edsby for our families. Edsby i s about as complex as Facebook to operate and navigate within, so if you can do facebook or Instagram, you can do Edsby. We will journey together to ensure that you are as up-to-date as possible on the progress of your child and the goings on at PPCS.
Episode 1: The River of News
This is found on your Edsby homepage (access by clicking the Edsby logo at the top left).
As many of you know, this is where you can find the weekly Bear Blast.
You will also find key happenings for the school and the division. The River of new updates regularly, so check back often.
Edsby allows you to check on your child's current progress in their classes. Check our family handbook (link below) for a key to the completion codes that you will see in Edsby.
If you are having trouble accessing Edsby for any reason, contact the school and we will do our best to problem-solve with you.
Bear Bites is Back!
Due to increases in grocery prices, we will have to increase the cost of our meals to $5.00 from $4.00, we thank you in advance for your understanding.
We will once again be running the punch card program but will be setting up a dollar-for-dollar card. You can load any amount (up to $100) that you want on a punch card. Anyone who has leftover punch cards will be notified and the value will be transferred to a new punch card. We also hope to have a digital portal set up where parents can check on how much money they have left on their child's card. Thank you for your patience as we work through this process.
Seen Around PPCS
Wellness 10 Trip
Wellness 10 hiked Klingers trail starting at Birch Beach and looping around Marean Lake. For lunch we grilled hotodgs at the Greenwater beach, then hiked into Steistol Lake. The class spent the afternoonon the lake working on canoe strokes and fishing craft. The class ended off the day creating their own tin foil tater, carrot and meat packs for supper at Mr. Bloski's farm. Awesome weather and a very scenic time of the year to get out and about. Great job by the students.
Art Club Needs Stuff for Projects
Does anyone have gift cards that they no longer use or that aren’t reloadable like Tim Hortons, Best Buy etc. or any cards like that that don’t have personal information on them? If so could art club have them for a project? I have several projects in mind that use cards..I could make do with cardboard but doesn’t work as well! Also old spray bottles like Windex etc.
Next Staff vs. Student is
Trayce M along with 6 other athletes from the North East travelled to The Harbor Golf Course and Resort at Elbow, SK for the 2023 SHSAA Provincial Golf Championship. It was a beautiful course nestled right along the shore of Lake Diefenbaker. It was also a very challenging course with a couple of blind island greens. Trayce played hard, and showed improvement at the back half of both rounds.
Volunteers and Athletes of the Month
Check Your Punch Card Balance
Once you click the link below and find your child's account number, you will see a number to the left of their account number (i.e. 17). That number will not change, so you only have to remember that number going forward.
We hope that this will help our families.
