Message from the PrincipalI


Winter weather will undoubtedly arrive at some point in our area so I’ve posted the bus cancellation information below.  If the weather is bad, it’s a good idea to listen to local radio for bus cancellation information.  We will also make every effort to put the information on our scrolling message on the school website (www.egr.bwdsb.on.ca) .  As well, I will send out a message on remind. When listening to the radio, remember that we are bus zone 14 (Durham and Holstein).  
 Thanks  again to Egremont Optimists for bringing the Hallowe’en spirit to the school on October 31st. A spooky and fun time was had by all!
Please remember to communicate with the school in a timely manner if your child’s transportation or end of day arrangements will be changing.  For example, if you know you are planning to collect your child(ren) early, please send a note to their teacher.  It is very important that we know, at day’s end, whether your child will be on the bus or going to day care or walking home.  Last minute information can cause delays and leave buses running late.  
Progress Reports come home on November 17.  Interviews will be scheduled for the evening of November 23 and during the day on November 24th.  Progress Reports are intended to provide information about a student’s development of the learning skills and work habits during the fall of the school year, as well as, a student’s general progress towards the achievement of the curriculum expectations in all subjects.
We have a couple of exciting events coming up in November.  November 17, at Egremont, Jessica Allossery will perform an evening concert in the gym.  Tickets are $15.  Partial proceeds will go to support the Egremont Music program.  Jessica will also be working with students during the day in a song-writing  workshop.
On November 29th we will be offering our Healthy Minds evening, presented by staff, students and Parent Council.  We hope that many families will be able to attend, hear keynote speaker Josh Yandt (former Bluewater student) and experience  classroom presentations.  Classes will be sending home invitations soon.
Our milk program is just getting up and running and we are excited to see how things run.  Many families have already signed up.  Proceeds, of course, are going towards playground enhancement, for which our Parent Council has many ideas.  The milk purchasing form is included inside, along with  “remind” sign-up instructions.
