Principal’s Update

It was a pleasure to work with all the children this year and we hope you will have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you in September.

While you are away on vacation, it would be beneficial for your child(ren) to continue to read regularly. The Winnipeg Public Library is free for residents of Winnipeg and they also have an app that you can access with an internet connection and books and/or audiobooks can be downloaded to your mobile device. Get the library app! The library has manny online services for quick and easy access, including: OverDrive (Libby), Kanopy, Hoopla, RBDigital, Flipster, PressReader and Naxos.

Online eBooks are great for travel and it can be a wonderful convenience. (Holding books in your hands are also important too!)

There are thousands of books available through the Winnipeg Public Library App and there are no late charges! The app will remove the book/audiobook from your device when it is due. It is well worth checking it out!

To view the upcoming staff assignments, please visit the website.

You will hear from your child(ren)’s homeroom teacher no later than the week of August 26-30, to schedule a home visit.  The teachers hope to have the majority of home visits completed before the first day of classes.  The appointments will be in the morning, afternoon or evening of that same week. If your child will have the same teacher and you feel you do not require another home visit, just let the teacher know when he/she calls your home.

The first day of school will be Wednesday, September 4, 2019.  The doors will open at 8:30 am. You will receive a preliminary calendar for the school year in the report cards at the end of the year. 

The school office will be open July 2 – July 5 and re-open August 19.  Office hours during these weeks are from 8-4 pm.  Mrs. Madden will be available during these times. At other times during the summer feel free to call the school and leave a message on the appropriate line 204-984-9600.

We will all be checking phone and email messages periodically throughout the summer.  

I look forward to strengthening our relationship as the school as we continue to work together to provide “Excellence in Education, Under the Gospel”. 

Have a great summer and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email.
