DID YOU KNOW...

According to the 2015 DoE Provincial homework Policy:
Students will
• Regularly complete homework assignments on time and to the best of their ability.
• Seek a clear understanding of assigned homework (e.g., objectives, timelines, resources needed) and ask for clarification if expectations are not clear.
• Learn to manage the time and resources they need to complete homework.

Families will
• Provide encouragement and appropriate support to help students develop study skills at home (e.g., time management).
• Help students balance time spent on homework, extracurricular, and out-of-school commitments.
• Contact teachers if their child is regularly unable to complete homework assignments or needs
significant amounts of time or help.

STUDENT ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
Parents are asked to drop by the office if your child is arriving late or leaving early, so that we can
better ensure the safety of our students. An adult will be asked to sign your child in or out of the
school regardless of the grade level.

LOST AND FOUND
Parents ~ The Lost & Found bin is already filling up and we are only one month into the
school year! Parents are reminded to label their child’s clothing and personal items so
that they can be returned if found! Please drop into the school lobby to take a peek into
the bin before the items are donated to local charity!

For students in Grade 9, the school hosts a French trip to Quebec and Montreal; the trip is usually for five - six days. The cost of the trip in 2017 was about $750 (this amount may be subject to change for 2018) and Parents should be aware that the cost of the travel does not include spending money for students. However, you may participate in a payment plan for your child, in grade seven and grade eight. Therefore, if you would like to begin this process, please contact me and I will help you get the process started!

BCS Monthly Newsletter, The View, will be emailed. This is a conscious effort to conserve paper for the environment (and to save money!) The 8C Monthly Newsletter, will be emailed home at the beginning of each month.

Early morning pre-order of lunch is a MUST; this is a cafeteria, not a restaurant! A copy of the cafeteria lunch options will be emailed at the beginning of each month. Each lunch meal deal is $5.00 - drink, meal, & dessert.
