Dear Parents and Guardians,
Today, the energy and excitement of a new school year was evident throughout our building. Welcome back to what promises to be an exciting school year. We hope you and your family have enjoyed a wonderful summer. At school, we have been busily preparing to ensure that we have a smooth start for our students. I am looking forward to working with you to ensure the success of your child. We have many exciting things planned for the year and it promises to be filled with fun, excitement, and of course, learning.
The staff at Roberta Bondar Public School is amazing and committed to providing the best possible learning environment for your children. Everyone has worked hard over the last few weeks to ensure that the school, resources and timetable are in place for the first day. We are confident that a productive year lies ahead filled with many exciting and varied learning opportunities for all our
students. This week students and their teachers will be getting acquainted, discussing expectations and responsibilities, setting classroom routines and reviewing the importance of student accountability. We appreciate your support in reinforcing these expectations at home.
We would like to invite all of our Roberta Bondar school community to our Meet the Teacher Pizza Night on September 18th about what their year will include. We look forward to seeing you!
You will be receiving a lot of important information this week. In addition, we would like any updated email or contact information to reach you via all means this year. Kindly send any new information our way.
Parents, I’d like to invite you to join us for an evening School Council meeting taking place on September xx at 7:00 pm. This meeting usually occurs monthly with parents, administration, and teachers to talk about our school. You may wish to take on an elected role or simply come to the meeting to listen and or actively participate. Attached is the self-nomination form and parent candidate form, if you wish to nominate another parent. Please return your nominations forms to the main office before the meeting.
The School Council positions are as follows; Chair, treasurer, Reporter, and Members at Large. Please come to the meeting to learn more about how parents can get involved, have a voice in school matter and meet members of our incredible school community. Your involvement matters and it makes a difference for both your child and the Bondar Community.
Together, we can offer your child a great year at Roberta Bondar Public School!
Please feel free to contact me with your questions or concerns. Have a fantastic school year!
