Juniper Ridge Parent Update: Feb. 5-9th, 2018

Hi Parents,

Here are the updates for this week at our school. I have also attached the PIZZA with the PRINCIPAL form should you want to print it and have your child enter for February. They really do love it!

VIRTUE OF THE WEEK: COMMITMENT

PARKING ISSUES: Can I please ask parents to abide by the signage around our school as to where you can and can not drop off or pick up children. The signs seem obvious and yet, I am still getting lots of complaints of parents parking for convenience not safety. Please do not come into the STAFF PARKING LOT and please do not block the entrance of our parking lot or neighbour's driveways. I know it isn't ideal, but we need to work together.

PAC NEWS: PAC MEETING Monday Feb. 5 in the library. 6:00 pm and Childminding is available. Come get involved. The PAC run this meeting and as the principal I give a report at each meeting.

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION BEGINS FEB. 13-16 at Juniper. Please bring a HYDRO BILL, BC SERVICES CARD/CARECARD and BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Registration starts at 9 am each day and ends at 3 pm.

COMMUNITY SAFETY DAY is coming up Sat. March 3 from 2-4 pm. Please make a note of this event and support the Community Association and the school with your presence.

PARENTS PLEASE COMPLETE THE MINISTRY STUDENT LEARNING SURVEY. I will resend the instructions and access to this survey. I would love for every parent to complete it. Please share your views.
