Principal's Message

Happy April to everyone and Happy spring break to all!

April is an exciting month as we begin to prepare for the initial visits of our pre Kindergarten students who are starting Kindergarten in September 2016. We are hosting a Kindergarten Orientation evening May 4, 5:30-6:30pm.

May 5 & 6, we will be hosting our Kindergarten Screening. The appointment times will be arranged in our office and we will notify families closer to these dates.

We look forward to connecting with all our new Kindergarten students and parents in May. If you know of someone who has a child that is of Kindergarten age starting in September, please let them know that they can stop by the school and pick up a registration package anytime between 8:30-4:30pm.

Thank you, and once again I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, and happy spring break.


Take care,


Mr. Colin Campbell

The variety shows are held Friday mornings during our regular assembly time (9:10 - 9:45). Watch for letters to come home in the coming weeks with more information.
