Welcome to Egremont Community School

Message from the PrincipalI

March is here and that means that, hopefully, spring is just around the corner! A big welcome to Mr. Andrew Aitken who was recently hired to teach our Grade 7 class.  Mr. Aitken has already imprinted his energetic style on the class and we are very pleased to have him here at Egremont.  We are still interviewing to fill our other position which resulted from the Shannon’s tragedy.  
Our speech competition was a great success, as always.  Students worked hard through the end of January and beginning of February to create their engaging oratories.  Results from the competition can be seen on page 2.  Congratulations to all for their hard work.
We currently have close to sixty families connected with the “remind”  Since starting with the app back in January, we’ve helped parents to quickly get information about bus cancellations, school events and, unfortunately, ski trip cancellations.  “remind” helps the school to instantly send out important messages to all who have signed up.  If you’d still like to join, we’ve included the information one more time.
Beginning in March, we’ll be opening up a new option for parents to pay for school activities, support fund raising, or purchase products like school clothing.  The new system allows purchase online  through various payment options.  Attached are instructions for signing up.  Our first “product” available for purchase will be the grade 1 and 3 swimming program which begins in April.  Permission Forms and payment information will be sent home on the Monday following the March Break. We really encourage families to take advantage of this highly convenient system as it takes away the need for cash on hand and significantly reduces the risk of lost money sent to school in backpacks.  Registration is easy and quick-instructions are attached.  Below is a link to a video that explains a little more about this new system.
Also attached is information about the March Break Free Public Skating that is  sponsored by the Elementary Teacher’s Federation of Ontario.
Parent Council
Our Parent Council are sponsoring several events in the coming months. Our second annual Community Music Night is now set for Thursday, April 27 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.  In May, our council is planning on supporting an evening that focuses on “Teaching Your Children to be Mindful”, and on June  14, from 5 to 7 p.m., they will host Family Fun Night.  Our council members could definitely use support from  more members of our parent community.  If you could give a little time, especially for the event in May your contributions would be of great value to our school.  Please contact Mr. Hopkins at the school if you can help...even just a little.
Let’s hope spring comes soon and brings with it the energy and replenishment that we always look forward to after winter!
