Grade 1-6 Christmas Concerts Tonight!
Here is what you need to know!
Our concerts are taking place tonight at the DOW Centre in Fort Saskatchewan. See the times below:
- Grade 1 & 2 - 5:15 p.m.
- Grade 3 & 4 - 6:30 p.m.
- Grade 5 & 6 - 7:45 p.m.
Babysitting is available in the Lion's Pride room at the DOW. Parents are required to sign their children in and out with the supervisors before leaving or taking their child. We also require a means of contacting the parent in case of emergency before accepting children into our babysitting area.
When the concert is finished, please let your classroom teacher know that you are taking your child with you. That way we know that every child is safe and accounted for. Thank you for your support!
What about tickets?
Each child received 2 free tickets and we sold extra tickets through the office for $5 each over the past week.
We are currently sold out of extra tickets for the Grade 1 and 2 concert. Extra tickets for the Grades 3-6 concerts will be for sale at a table in the lobby this evening.
How do I access the Live Streaming of the Concert?
We are trying our best to live stream. Our student volunteers are doing their best to get it up and running. Click here to access it.
The live stream will begin a few minutes before the concert is expected to start.
Our Kindergarten friends will celebrate on Tuesday, December 18 in the school gym at 9:30 a.m.
When Can My Child Start Kindergarten?
To register for kindergarten in the 2019-20 school year, your child must be five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2019.
Be a Wee Read Volunteer!
Support Our Students with Reading!
Our school is excited to be implementing Wee Read, an eight week program to foster the love of books and strengthen our ECS and Grade 1 students’ foundations for reading and success at school.
Volunteers are the heart of this program. If you are interested in volunteering an hour of your time a week to read with our ECS and Grade 1 students, please go to Mme Kulmatycki’s eTeacher page “Be a Wee Read Volunteer!” at http://ardrossanelementary.ca/eteachers/4130/wee-read for more information and the sign up form.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
