Today was a great day! Thank you to all students, parents, and staff for the positive energy that was shared throughout the day. It was a joy to see students connecting with friends, playing outside at recess, settling in their spaces, and engaging in learning.
A smooth first day is made possible when everyone works together. Thank you for your support and we look forward to an amazing year together.
It’s a great year to have a great year!!
Below are a couple reminders for this first week:
Dress for the Weather
With the hot temperatures outside and no air conditioning throughout the building, students and staff definitely felt the heat today. Please ensure students are dressed appropriately, in layers, for the warm weather and have a water bottle they can refill throughout the day.
Your child will be coming home with a green agenda form. The agenda is an extremely important classroom tool in elementary school as it helps with communication between the school and home, and aids students with organization and preparation.
All students are required to have an agenda for the 2022-23 school year. Glen Allan has agendas for families to purchase for the cost of $4.25. We recommend these agendas for student use as they are of high quality, formatted for optimal classroom use, and students having the same agenda provides consistency in the elementary classroom. If students have attended Glen Allan in the past, the agendas are similar to what they received previous years. If families choose not to purchase an agenda from the school, it will be the responsibility of the family to provide an agenda that has space for daily communication.
Please complete and return the bottom portion to the school by Friday, September 2. If the green form did not make it home today, you can access another copy- https://www.glenallanelementary.ca/download/397123
