School District No. 73 has a new Student absence reporting system. As of Monday, October 31st our new Safe Arrival system goes into full effect at Sun Peaks. Rather than phoning the school to report your children's absences, please use one of the three methods provided BEFORE 8:30am. Reference cards (see below) will go home with students by the end of the day on Wednesday, November 2nd for parents with all the necessary info. If you have not yet done so already, please follow the instructions in the email sent to parents with your username and temporary password; these are needed to use the website or app for absence reporting. The toll fee number relies on Caller-ID for authentication so does not require a username or password. Thank you for your cooperation.
Get Ready For Kindergarten!
Is your child entering kindergarten in September 2017? Do you know families who have children who will be starting school next fall?
Take advantage of this early start to build on your children’s skills and development and help prepare them for a positive experience in Kindergarten. Get support and your questions answered with this series of activities and events throughout the year before your children start school.
Tuesday, October 25th from 6:15-8:30pm is the first presentation in the series. Marianne Vande Pol, District Early Years Coordinator, and Roxane Letterlough, Aboriginal Resource Teacher, will speak with parents and child care providers about a number of topics, including what is generally expected of children when they are starting Kindergarten, what the gradual entry process looks like, and how they can help their children get ready for starting school. There will also be a brief overview of the new school district curriculum, and information about what supports are available for Aboriginal children and families. An Early Childhood Educator will also be joining us to talk about how your children’s early experiences in daycare, preschool, or at home can help to prepare children for the transitions of starting Kindergarten.
Please share this FREE and exciting opportunity with families who have children starting school in September of 2017!
Registration is through the Early Years Centre – Child Care Resource & Referral at 250-376-4771
