Morning Yard Supervision - Please be aware that before school from 9:05-9:20, students in Grade 1-6 are to go directly to the primary and junior yards where supervision is provided.

Pokémon is not permitted at school due to issues of theft and unfair trading.

One of our students is missing their #35 Darlington Soccer Club jacket. If you own one of these jackets, if you could kindly check to make sure you have the right number, the student missing the jacket would be most appreciative. Good news! The jacket has been found!
Oct. 2 - The school newsletter of the year was sent home with the Oldest or Only child in each family.  
 
The Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board provides screening to determine if students
qualify for gifted programming. Students who qualify for this programming may select from
the options of remaining at their home school or placement in a self-contained gifted class.
A comprehensive screening procedure for students in grades 4-6 has been developed to identify these children.
Parents/guardians may contact the school if they wish to speak with your child’s teacher
and/or the Special Education Resource Teacher for further information regarding this
programming. Please contact the school by Oct. 24.

Please be sure you come to a full stop at the 3-way stop on Glass Court.  Durham Regional Police are on site almost every day.  They have been issuing warnings since Jan. but will now start to issue tickets.  Each ticket costs $110 so please be sure to come to a FULL stop.  Not only will this save you money, but it will keep everyone safe!  
 Please read the attached poster regarding vandalism in our Clarington community.   2014 Graffiti ad.pdf
Parent Involvement Corner - As parents and guardians, we all want our children to do well in school and in life.  Research shows students are more successful when their parents are involved in their education.  But what does parent involvement include?  KPR's Parent Involvement Committee - which includes parent, guardian and community representatives - reminds busy parents they likely are involved in their child's schooling already.  That involvement may include communicating regularly with the school; helping your child with schoolwork; attending school events; and more.  During the summer, in particular, parents can help their children keep up their literacy and math skills.  Watch the school website over the next few months for practical, easy ways to help keep your children learning throughout the summer months.  For more information on parent involvement, visit www.kprschools.ca

Please...have your children walk to school or ride the bus if at all possible.  Our parking lots are too small to handle a large volume of cars.  The south parking lot is dedicated to staff parking and is almost always full.  The north parking lot is dedicated to daycare staff, daycare parents, and those dropping off children for Junior and Senior Kindergarten.  The bus loop is closed until all buses have loaded and unloaded.  We ask parents of children in grades 1 and 2 to drop their children off using the Glass Court entrance.  We ask parents of children in grades 3 and up to drop their children off using the Beaver Street entrance behind the school.  Thanks so much for helping us to keep our children safe!
