Leadership students support our grade 7 orientation

Today we kicked off the school year with some great helpers.  About 40 returning grade 8 and 9 students were on hand today to welcome our grade 7 students with some fun activities, help them with their lockers and serve them a wonderful lunch in our almost completed "Outdoor Classroom". What a friendly start to our year. Thank you to everyone who came out to lend a hand.

The new bike racks were well received by many students who rode their bikes to school today. We would like to remind students to take their locks with them when they leave school.

Over the course of this week, teachers will be doing classroom activities to help students get to know their classmates and make new friends.  Students should not be overly concerned if they do not know anyone in their homeroom class yet, they are sure to make some new friends in the days to come!

It was wonderful to welcome back our grade 8 and 9 students to the school and catch up on some summer news. Demographic forms should have come home tonight for review.  Fee sheets will be out later this week. Reminder to parents to print off the first day forms that need to be signed and returned ASAP.  They are located to the left of the blog on our website: www.cbe.ab.ca/b691
There is a pizza party for the homeroom that is first to bring in all completed forms!

Wednesday September 4, 2013 is our first regular day 1.  We will be having an extended homeroom all week long to review school procedures and handle minor administration. Thanks!
