Welcome to Egremont Community School

Message from the PrincipalI


Term 1 Report Cards, which detail your child (ren)’s achievement of expectations in the Ontario Curriculum, will be sent home on Friday, February 22nd. If you would like to meet with their teacher to discuss theses reports, please feel free to contact the school.
Well done to our Girls’ and Boys’ volleyball teams who represented Egremont so well at their area tournament in January.  Both teams made it all the way to the finals where they were highly competitive  and demonstrated excellent sports etiquette.
The rollercoaster weather we’ve experienced in 2019 has brought many cancellations already.  We know this creates many challenges and frustrations for parents and, certainly, here at the school, we are frustrated with not being able to run a regular day. Bus companies must decide, very early, whether or not they can run, with the student safety being the ultimate consideration.  A reminder that, typically, the school does remain open, with teaching and support staff  in place so parents are welcome to bring their kids to school.
On mornings when we receive notification that buses are cancelled, I try to send notice out to our families on School Messenger Communicate as early as possible, with recognition for many families an early start is routine.  If you are not receiving these notices or would like to change the way you receive them  (voice/email or text) contact the school for assistance.
Recently, you should have received a “Save the Date” notice about our upcoming Family Math Night (March 7). We hope to see all of our Egremont families for this fun event, sponsored by our Parent Council.  There will be pizza and fun math games for the whole family to enjoy.  The next Parent Council meeting is scheduled for February 27 at 6:30 p.m., in the school library.
Our school speech competition will be held on Friday, February 15, in the gym, assuming the weather cooperates.  If not, the event will take place on the following Tuesday, February 19th, the day after the Family Day holiday.
Mr. Shannon continues to support students who have a love for skiing, with two upcoming dates, February 7 and 20.  On February 20, Parent Council will be bringing the Rocks and Rings program to Egremont for all students from Kindergarten to Grade 5.   Students in those grades will learn the basics of curling (in the school gym) in a fun program designed to engage students with this popular  sport.
Now that January is over, hopefully we can  get into some routine and avoid too many more days with cancellations.  Here’s hoping  the weather will co-operate and actually let the kids come to school and be in their regular classes.  Perhaps this is what we need...
