Message from the PrincipalI

Welcome back to everyone and happy new year from all here at the school!  
Term 1 Report Cards will be sent home on February 24th which means that, during January, teachers will be determining summative evaluations and writing comments.  Unlike the Progress Report that was sent home earlier in the year, this report card  documents evaluation of student achievement of the learning expectations in the Ontario Curriculum. Students will be graded according to their most consistent achievement level.
Grade 8 students and their parents should be making plans for high school attendance next year.  Students attending a Bluewater school next year (GHSS or JDSS) will have school support in their transition process.  Students planning on attending high school outside of Bluewater will have to contact that school’s guidance department to initiate and complete the transition process.
Mr. Shannon and Mrs. Runyon are working hard with our grade 7 & 8 boys and girls volleyball teams in  preparation for their upcoming tournament.  Good luck to both teams as they head to off to  Hanover next Thursday for their area tournaments.
Much thanks to Marny MacLeod and her volunteers for their efforts in running the Book Fair back in November.  Total sales exceeded $3000.00, again, resulting in $431.62 cash back to the library for the purchase of more books!
We continue to welcome the CMHA once a month to provide mental health programming for our students.  They do a marvelous job of providing a positive message and destigmatizing mental health.  On page 2, I’ve included their newsletter.
Please see the very important notice below about “remind”.  We’re hoping to have many parents sign up so that we can continue to streamline communication, with the use of technology.  Instructions for how to sign up are included on the last page.
We were all sad that Christmas in the Bush had to be cancelled due to the weather. Thanks to the Egremont Optimists who brought  at least a little bit of the event to the school by serving their wonderful stew in our building.
Our Parent Council, who continue to provide great support for the school, are once again hosting Music Night in February (February 27th).  The inaugural event last year was a huge success and we are hoping for a repeat performance.  Look for more information to come home at a later date.
Much thanks to all of our Nutrition Program volunteers who work hard to provide nutritious snacks for our kids every day.  Thanks to Robyn Dagelinckx for coordinating and to all of our new volunteers who are giving their time to keep this important program running.
