Highlights from this past week

This past week was reading week so our students were able to experience the love of story-telling through the gift of time donated by a variety of virtually presented guest readers. We are grateful for their time and our students truly enjoyed this opportunity as well.


We had School Student photos and Class photos on Tuesday. - If your child(ren) was/were not able to partake, re-takes will be on October 26th.


On Wednesday, the students and staff dressed up as Twins/Multiples! It was super fun and our students got very creative! We also had our very first assembly of the year hosted virtually by our grade 8 students!


We are happy to re-introduce our "Spin-to-win" program again this year. Each day, students have an opportunity to receive a "student-shout-out" slip for any recognized good deeds around the school. Each shout-out is entered into a raffle - and once a month, at virtual assembly, those students whose names get drawn get to "spin to win" a prize. This week, two of our students got to steal the principal's chair for a day and other great prizes!


If you would like to donate to our "Spin to win" initiative please submit gift cards, etc. to the school's office. We appreciate your support!


Here are a few highlighted moments throughout the week for you to check out.

Important Reminders:

  • WATER BOTTLES: Please ensure that your student brings a water-bottle each day to school.


  • MASKS: Masks are required inside EICS Facilities by all students, staff and authorized visitors.


  • ILLNESS AND ABSENCES: A reminder for all families that the AHS Daily Assessment needs to be completed and actioned each morning prior to coming to school. If your child is experiencing symptoms please choose:


    1. “Flu-like symptoms”

    2. “other illness or injury” If they are experiencing symptoms that you do not deem to be flu-like, or your child has a medical appointment.

    3. “parent excused.” If your child is experiencing no symptoms at all, please choose this. The parent excused absence should only be chosen if you are keeping your child home for a reason that does not pertain to a medical issue. (i.e dance competition)


  • BUILDING ADMITTANCE: Please call the office or ring the bell upon your arrival and a staff member will greet you at the door. All doors will remain locked at this time.


  • CONSENT FORMS & SCHOOL FEES: Please note, these items are due. Please log in through your parent portal to pay them. - If you have any questions, please call Tess Guerin in the office at 780-922-4522.
