From the Office

To our families celebrating the Lunar New Year this month, we wish you good fortune and happiness – Kung Hey Fat Choi!

Term 1 Report Cards

This month you will be receiving the Term I Report Card. Ongoing communication between home and school remains key to student success. Report Cards are just one tool in our continuous efforts to increase student achievement and celebrate our collective learning. We encourage you to continue to stay informed about your child’s progress through teachers’ newsletters, google classroom and work sent home. As always, we value your support and feedback as we strive to meet all challenges and opportunities with optimism and enthusiasm. Report cards will be shared electronically the week of February 21st.
