Home-School Connections: ideas to enhance student learning at home, February 2019

February 4, 2019—Each month, school newsletters include a one-page insert called Home-School Connections. It describes ways in which families can enhance student learning at home in the areas of literacy; numeracy; healthy, caring schools and improving student learning.

This month’s Home-School Connections (Pdf) features:

  • Kindergarten Registration
    • On-line pre-registration is now available. Children must be 4 years old in 2019 (born in 2015) to enter Kindergarten.

      1. Your child’s birth certificate or passport
      2. Immunization card
      3. Home address
