Spring Photo Orders

You should have received your child’s Spring Photos home by now. The instructions are in the envelope, but to further clarify; the Spring Photos are based on the “Honour System”.

Keep the sheets from the package that you want and either send in payment to the school office OR go online to https://my.lifetouch.ca and place your order there. You will need the unique Portrait ID & Access Code that can also be found in the envelope. Any unwanted sheets that you are NOT paying for are to be returned to the school office.

Whats Happening

Photo Retakes
The Lifetouch photographer will be here on Thursday November 19th to take Photo Retakes. Unlike past years, the photographer will ONLY be here on the one day to do retakes, not two days. The Monday/Wednesday kindergarten students are welcome to drop in to the Muir Lake Hall anytime from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. to have their photo re-done. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.

Ward Restructure
In 2013, Parkland School Division’s Trustees identified concerns with the current electoral wards. Specifically, it was felt that they no longer reflected the democratic principle of representation by population. Click HERE to read more from our PSD70 Office and to view the proposed ward changes on a map.

CAT4 Assessments
During the next two weeks, our grades 2 and 4 to 9 students will be participating in the Canadian Achievement Tests (CAT-4). These assessments, based on Canadian curriculum, will assess each student’s basic skill level in reading, language, spelling and mathematics. Parents and teachers will receive a printed report. It is anticipated that the results will give our school information on achievement levels and will help to set direction for future learning needs. Please contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. Ferguson if you have any questions or concerns. For more information on these assessments you can visit their website at http://www.canadiantestcentre.com/CAT4/CAT4-Home.php
