First Week of School!
Following numerous student registrations over the last few weeks, classrooms clean and set and an eager staff ready to go, we welcome you to the first day of school. Our staff spent last week preparing for our start, focusing on a review of our School Innovation Plan and looking at priorities for the year. Our Board theme, Sent to Be the Good News provides us with a challenge as we interact with those in our wider community. I am looking forward to sharing my own goals in person with you, however, I will let our students know that I am focusing on the following areas this year:
Facilitate innovative student and staff learning and opportunity.
- Participate in staff/student faith development, wellness and safety initiatives.
- Network with other educators and share our All Saints learning approaches
Our school administration team and student services personnel will meet with all of our grades individually this week to review common expectations and provide direction for support if students need assistance.
First Day of School Procedures
Grade 7 students will go to the
Cafetorium and their teacher will call their names and bring the
Grade 9 & 10 students will check the lists posted in the atrium for the room number of
Grade 11 students will check the lists posted on the windows in the hall on the second floor (front and back of school) for the room number of their homeroom. They will go to their homeroom where they will receive their schedule.
Grade 12 students will check the lists posted on the windows in the hall on the third floor (front and back of school) for the room number of their homeroom. They will go to their homeroom where they will receive their schedule.
Peer Helpers will be on hand to help students find their homerooms.
A verification sheet will be sent home with each student on Tuesday - it needs to be carefully checked over and signed by parents and returned on Wednesday.
If your child has
asthma please note the Ministry requires you to complete a medical form for your child. Please e-mail the school at AllSaints.High@ocsb.ca to obtain this form as it cannot be attached to this message. It will also be on the website as of Tuesday, September 8th.
Parents are asked to create an on-line payment account for each of their children at All Saints. The option to use credit cards is now available at https://ocsb.schoolcashonline.com/ You will get a receipt for all payments made. The student fee ($30 per student with a maximum of $60 per family) is due as soon as possible this week and may be paid online. If you have two or more students you just choose one child at a time and choose the option for (first, second, third…) child.
Students eligible for Presto cards who did not pick them up prior to school starting will be called to the office, however, will need to make their own way to school on Tuesday.
Friday, September 9th is our school photo day. Information for ordering pictures will come home ahead of this date. Students are reminded that even if you aren’t ordering pictures, your photo is required for student identification as well as our yearbook.
