First Day Back News!

In order to keep things running smoothly on the first day, here are a few things to remember:

 

  • Both pedestrian and vehicular traffic will be very busy, please refer to and adhere to the new Parking and Traffic Management Plan.
  • Last week parents received an email indicating that École Claudette-et-Denis-Tardif will be using our unoccupied wing of modular classrooms for the first few weeks of school. That will impact our parking and drop off routines.
  • If you are driving your child and just dropping them off, please use the “Kiss & Go” lane (Drop Off Zone) on the West side of the school (parking is NOT PERMITTED in this zone).
  • If you are driving your child and need to exit your vehicle, please park only in designated zones (residential areas to the NORTH of the school).
  • As you arrive at the school, student volunteers (in bright yellow vests) and staff members (in bright pink), will be on-hand to provide bracelets for Kindergarten students and answer general questions.
  • The kindergarten students will be provided with bracelets to help staff and other students identify them and offer assistance if necessary.
  • Please use only the MAIN Entrance (#2 West Side) as all other doors will be locked
  • When students arrive they will go directly to the gym (with all of their belongings).
  • Parents are welcome to stay for the welcome assembly. This will be followed by a 10 minute window where parents may escort their child to their classroom for “First Day of School” photos!
  • Please note that all of our teachers are available by email and we will be hosting a “Meet the Teacher Night” on September 7, 2016. Please allow the staff to focus on the students during arrival.

We look forward to seeing you on the first day!

Welcome to Our Updated Website!

We are pleased to be launching our new “mobile device friendly” website so that users can now navigate our site with greater ease while using a smart phone or other electronic device.

Please note that there are still some inactive links and unfinished pages during this transition period.

We appreciate your patience as we bring our upgrade to completion.

Parent Information Evening (September 15)

For the past several years, New Horizons School has been using Restitution Self Discipline as our behavior management approach.

Since our school has added many new faces over the last few years, we thought it was time for a refresher course. We are fortunate to have Diane Gossen, author and creator of Restitution Self Discipline, visit our school and present to parents on the evening of September 15 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Ms. Gossen will also be facilitating a staff in-service on the September 16 Professional Development Day.

We hope that parents take this opportunity to attend this informative session.
