Back to School

As many of you have probably noticed the school is under some construction this summer.
This summer the school is receiving a number of renovations. The music room is having new windows installed, new carpet installed, sound dampening improvements, and new cupboards for the expanded music program. The Library is receiving new windows, new carpet and some new furniture to enhance the student environment. Elementary classrooms are having windows installed and air conditioning improvements installed.

Aside from the work inside, the school is also receiving enhancements to improve energy efficiency. A new roof, envelope and insulation around the building will help with heating and cooling of the building. Drainage issues that the school was experiencing in the back of the school are also being addressed with the renovations.

I have been in contact through out the summer with the construction company and they assure me that interior renovations will be complete by the time school starts in September. The exterior renovations will be ongoing and are hopefully going to be complete by October. Plans have been made to ensure students have safe entrances and exits to the building and adequate areas to play outside during recess.

The school office will be open Monday, August 29th for registration or questions you may have. A reminder that in your preparations for the start of school remember that the school will be purchasing student supplies so there is no need to brave the lines at the department stores to purchase school supplies, take the time instead to spend some quality family time as summer comes to a close.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,
Mr. Thomson
