PRE-PRIMARY

There are still a few that are currently in the ACES Pre-Primary Program that I have not heard from to register in Primary. Please come to the office or phone the school at 902-857-2600 to let us know that your child will be attending, or not attending Primary at ACES in 2020.  For those students who are returning, you do not need to reapply. However, we will require a little more information from you.

PRE-PRIMARY AND PRIMARY REGISTRATION!

Although Pre-Primary and Primary registration was last week, we are still taking registrations.  Please contact the office at 902-857-2600 or come by the school to register.  "Note that Pre-Primary and Primary registration starts Monday, January 13th, 2020 and ends on January 17, 2020.  This will be for those students turning four years of age (Pre-Primary) on or before Dec. 31, 2020, and for those students turning five years of age (Primary) on or before Dec. 31, 2020.  Please come to the school any time before 2:30 p.m. with your child’s birth certificate and health card information.  You will be asked to complete a four page application.  If you do not have time to complete an application at the school you can drop by and pick up one to take with you, however, it must be returned within a week of you taking it."

Every Friday we will be selling bags of popcorn. Each bag cost a $1.00.  Orders will be taken in the morning and popcorn will be ready for recess.


 

  • Winter Wear - There are many times students will be outdoors for Physical Education, and including their twice weekly morning walks, recess and lunch.  They love playing in the snow and getting wet happens regularly.  Please make sure they have appropriate wear for this time of year.  Extra clothing always helps as well; in case your child does get wet.   
  • For re-scheduled dismissal for your child, please try and call before 1:10 p.m.  There are times when it is difficult to get a note to a student in time before the bell rings.
  • Please remember to call in the morning if your child is not attending school.  We only do safe arrival from Primary to Grade 3.  However, parents should still call for grade 4 and 5 students to let us know.
  • Blank bus notes A lot of you have been using the bus notes that have been handed out to you.  It is working wonderfully.  Please continue, as it insures accurate information.  These notes can also be used for students that will be picked up.   If you need more just call or email the office to let Cynthia know.  I will put them in your child’s book bag.
  • Picking up Students at dismissal.  Please remember that parents are asked to wait outside at dismissal until our bus students have left the building.
  • Pre-Primary parents are asked to use the pre-primary entrance when dropping off or picking up students.
  • Lost and Found - We are already getting a buildup of lost and found items. The lost and found table is in the front lobby.  If you are missing something, please have your child check the lost and found table.
