Punctuality letter and Green Acres timing

Attached is the letter being sent home today with all students regarding punctuality and consequences. Please reinforce with your child our expectations.

GREEN ACRES – Please note that students are expected in their Group room by 8:15 a.m. sharp and should return to school by approximately 3:15 p.m. Although the weather outline is sunny, students should dress for slightly cooler temperatures in the morning. A BBQ lunch is being provided. All groups are posted in the Main foyer outside the cafeteria. This promises to be a great day allowing our students to interact with students from other classes in the same grade. Any students not attending the trip will be placed in a class with another grade (i.e. grade 7’s with a grade 8 class or grade 8’s with a grade 7 class).  Thank you to the over 95 % of our grade 7 and 8 students who have brought in their permission forms.

Wednesday October 1st – Grade 7 trip

Thursday October 2nd – Grade 8 trip
