Dear Alexander Park Families,
This is our first newsletter to our 2022-2023 school families! Before Summer kicks off for our office staff today, we wanted to send one more reminder about the first few days of school.
Our first day of school for the new year is Tuesday, September 6, from 10:00 to 12:00. We will be hosting a welcoming pancake breakfast for all families starting at 10:00 until 11:00. At 11:00 Grade 1-3 students will join their previous teachers until noon, and Kindergarten students will leave with their families. Buses will run one hour later and arrive home 3 hours earlier than regular days.
The first regular day of school is Wednesday, September 7.
For Grade 1-3 students this may be the first day with your children’s new teachers, or there may be a different learning plan depending upon whether we need more time to finalize class configurations. We will let families know our plans when we know more definitively our enrollment and our staffing needs.
For Kindergarten students this will be the first day of AM or PM sessions. If you are unsure which session your child will attend, please call the office on or after August 22. Kindergarten children will move between classes for the first two days, and we anticipate assigning students to classes will happen at the end of the first week. More information about Gradual Entry can be found on our website: https://apes.sd6.bc.ca.
The school bell schedule and the school district calendar are attached to this e-mail for your information.
We hope your family finds some time to refresh and relax over the summer. We look forward to seeing you in September. Our office is closed after Friday, July 8, and re-opens on Monday, August 22.
The Alexander Park School Staff
