It is hard to believe that in a week the halls will be filled with the chatter of children. I hope everyone has had an amazing summer break, and that the students are ready to come back to school for another year of learning. I am looking forward to seeing everyone next week!

Our first day of school is on Tuesday, September 4. Students in Grades 1-7 will be attending school from 9:00 am until noon. Students who are returning to Pebble Hill, should line up by 8:55 am at the door where they lined up in June. Most students will return to last year’s class for the first few days, and the K/1 classes will be taken to the library. If your child is going to miss the first day of school, please call the office at 604-943-0228 and let us know.

Please do not bring any school supplies until Wednesday.

New students already registered will start the day in our school gym.

New students not yet registered should report to the school office.

Our PAC will have a welcome back table in front of the school with coffee on the first day. The PAC executive will be happy to answer questions for new families and are looking forward to welcoming back returning families.

All Kindergarten students should attend on September 4 from 9:00 – 9:45 am. Kindergarten families should follow the “phase in ” schedule that was sent home in June. The Schedule can be seen by clicking on this link: .Gradual Entry Letter Group A 2018  If you are uncertain if your child is in Group A or Group B, please contact the school office or check with the teachers on Tuesday morning.

FAQ: WHY DO STUDENTS START THE SCHOOL YEAR WITH LAST YEAR’S TEACHER?

Our school organization is based upon information provided by families anytime between February and the last week of school.  We now need to determine if there have been changes such as:  families that left during the summer who did not notify the school, or whether all new registrants show up for school.

We can see if our projected enrolment and class organization is consistent with our actual enrolment. By starting the students in last year’s classes we have the opportunity to determine if that information is still accurate while avoiding having young children subject to unnecessary moves.  Students, especially very young ones, quickly become attached to a new teacher and their classmates.  It is very important that we avoid moving them from a class in which they have been placed.  By starting with last year’s classes we avoid disappointment.

Students will be placed in their new classes as soon as possible.  Both the students and teachers are keen to begin to build their new learning communities.
