Class Placement & School Start Up

July 04, 2016

Class placement & School Start-up:

Much thought goes into creating classrooms at our school.  Teaching staff carefully considers the following criteria when placing students: class dynamics, specific grouping for academic or social-emotional needs, gender, and students' learning styles.  Class lists will be posted on Tuesday afternoon at 2:30pm on our front doors.  Kindergarten families will have received information regarding the gradual entry process and their child's scheduling.   


Start-up 2016-2017

Our first day of school is for 2 hours from 10am to 12pm (no lunch) on Tuesday, September 6th, 2016.  The following day school commences as per our normal schedule; please see below.  Chef Rick will begin making his amazing lunches starting Wednesday, September 7th!  If you would like your son/daughter on the lunch program for September please fill in a lunch program envelope (these will be sent home on Tuesday), insert the correct amount of money, and drop the envelope off at the school office or kitchen in the first week of school.   


Morning bus pick-up will be as follows:         

Esowista & Ty-Histanis - 9:25 am

South Chesterman Beach - 9:35am

Boat Pick-up at 9:40am

Dismissal time is at 12pm. 

First day process:

Students will proceed to last year's classroom at 10am. 

New students please check-in at the office.  At 11:15am we will have a whole school assembly to go through some of our general operating procedures.  Students will then be dismissed from the gym at noon.

Individual teachers will be sending home a school supply list in the first few weeks of September.
