VRCS will be hosting a Meet the Teacher night this Thursday (October 5th) at 6:30 -7:30. Each teacher will be hosting a 30 minute information session in their classroom and then repeating it for the second half hour, for those of you who have multiple children in the school.
This is the first time in recent memory that we have hosted a Meet the Teacher night. I will be looking for your feedback, in order to improve this event.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to meeting you here.
Our Welcome Back BBQ is scheduled for today from 2:45-3:45.
This will be an informal gathering of staff, students and parents welcoming everyone back to a new school year. Please note that the buses will be dismissed one hour later than normal.
Hope to see you there!
All the teachers have been busy over the last few days making sure that their classrooms are ready for the start of the school year. We are all very excited to get started.
There has been a few changes this year in staff and how we are going to do a few things. First off, you may notice that on our staffing page we have a number of new staff members at our school in grade 3, 7 and guidance.
Second, our Welcome Back BBQ has changed a little in its format. We will still be having our BBQ after school on the first Friday (September 8) of the school year but there will not be any classroom sessions. We would like to have this event as a very informal social opportunity for teachers, parents and students to just meet and talk. Please note that the buses will be dismissed an hour later than usual (at 3:45) to allow for all to stay and participate.
We have a more formal “Meet the Teacher” night planned for October 5th, where parents will be invited to come in to the class and hear all about what the curricular and behavioral expectations will be. More information will follow when we get closer to the date.
There have been a number of changes to our staff over the summer. Feel free to check out our updates on our STAFF page.
Reminder to Parents Regarding Bus Stops for next School Year
Many bus routes, especially in the Charlottetown area, have been re-designed to accommodate zoning changes that have been approved by the Board of Directors of the Public Schools Branch. The redesigned bus routes may result in students traveling on different buses and at different times in September than in the current school year.
In an effort to help inform parents of these changes, please ensure parents are aware that they should check their September bus information using the bus stop utility on the Public Schools Branch website even if they have not been affected by the zoning changes. The information can be accessed at the following link: http://www.gov.pe.ca/edu/psb/bus-stop-search/. This website will be available on June 26.
A reminder that our annual spring concert will be tomorrow (Wednesday) at Vernon River School. We will have 2 performance times: 1:00 pm and then again at 6:30. For the evening performance children should arrive 15-30 minutes before the concert.
Parents and Guardians please also remember to dress your child appropriately for their performance:
- grades K-5 to please wear clothing that shows their Canadian pride (Canada Day shirts, shirts from across Canada, or even just red & white!)
- Please remember how warm it gets
- All band students will wear their band uniforms for the concert — white dress shirts and black bottoms.
Please make every effort to have your child attend. Thank you for your cooperation.
