Notes for the coming week – September 25th – 29th

We have had a busy week at Greenfield with picture days and our Family Picnic.  Next week is looking like a busy one as well. Here are some notes to remember:

  1. First of all, a big “Thank You” goes out to the parents who organized and helped with our Family Picnic.  The weather held for us and we had a steady flow of children and parents enjoying the food and activities.  This event would not have happened without some great effort by our Home and School and volunteers.  Bravo!
  2. Our Breakfast Program begins on Monday, September 25th.  Thank you to Robin and Crystal for coordinating this program.  More volunteers are needed so please help out if you can.
  3. The HotLunches menu for October will be open on Sunday night and will be open for ordering until October 1st.  It is a long month so reminders will be sent so parents do not forget to have orders in by the deadline.  It will cover the period of October 2nd to November 3rd.
  4. Our fundraiser has begun.  Packages with the Dieleman catalog have been sent home with students and we are hoping for great support for our Home and School.  There are great items in the catalog and orders will arrive before our November Parent – Teacher Interviews. The fundraiser will go until October 10th and the dollars raised go to many activities and purchases for our school.
  5. Home and School Meeting on Tuesday, September 26th at 6:30 in the library.  It is our first meeting of the year and all are welcome!
  6.  Thursday, September 28th is the date for the Terry Fox School Run.  We will be doing the run/walk here at Greenfield if weather permits.  We are encouraging all children to bring a loonie for cancer research.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

Meet the Teacher – Thursday, September 14th

We would like to remind our parents of our Meet the Teacher evening at Greenfield Elementary on Thursday, September 14th.

Beginning at 6:30, parents can go to their child’s classroom to meet the teacher and hear  information about the classroom program.  This will be a very general discussion as teachers and students are just getting to know one another.

As many parents have more than one child at Greenfield, an announcement will be made at 6:45 to allow parents to visit another child’s classroom.

At 7:00, all parents will be invited to the gym to hear a message from Principal Sandra Jay, our Greenfield Home and School, and the Breakfast Program.

We hope our parents will take the time to join us on Thursday evening!

HotLunches for September 2017

Our HotLunches menu for September 2017 is up and ready for ordering.  We wanted to get it up as soon as we could as we know parents and students appreciate having milk and lunch options available at school.   Some things to know:

  1. All parents must re-register. At the end of the school year all information is deleted because of teacher, student, and class changes.  The information on how to use HotLunches is on our website under the Parent Page.  As well, this information is in the front our all students’ agendas.  Please contact the office if you have any questions or need help to get started.
  2.  The menu is for September 11th to September 29th.
  3.  The deadline for orders to be in is Sunday, September 10th at midnight.  There are no exceptions to this deadline.  Late orders create problems for our vendors and us here at school.  We appreciate that it is a tight timeline but we did want to get the menu up for ordering as soon as we could.
  4. Menu changes:
    *A Chicken Caesar Salad is available from Pita Pit on Tuesdays.
    *Garlic fingers are available from Captain Sub/Greco on Thursdays.
    *All prices are the same as last year except white milk which is now .50 cents.

We are ready!

Our staff at Greenfield is ready for our students to begin!

Some important “First Day Notes”:

  1. Doors will open at 8:15.  This does not mean all students need to be here at that time. Our buses arrive any time between 8:15 and 8:30.
  2. There is no Breakfast Program until September 25th.
  3. Students who arrive before 8:15 will be waiting outdoors.
  4. As students come into the school at 8:15, our Kindergarten students will be directed to their classrooms, Grade 1 students will meet in the cafeteria, and Grade 2 to Grades 6 will meet their teachers in the gym.
  5. Parents will not be going with students to the gym or to classrooms.  The exception will be the parents of Kindergarten students and these parents should not expect to stay for a long time.  We will want to begin our school day as soon as possible!
  6. Parents should not take pictures in or around the school as it may include other children whose parents have not given permission for their child’s picture to be taken.
  7. A “Welcome Back” notice will be going home with students tomorrow with more important notes and dates.

We do ask that everyone take care in our parking lot as it will be a very busy morning!
