Every School Day Counts at York River P.S.
Welcome back to school! Please review our September newsletter by clicking here. There is some important information for all students and their families.
Every School Day Counts!
At York River Public School we believe that "Every School Day Counts". We continue to work together within our school, our school board and with our community partners to inspire every student to reach their full potential and provide access to rich learning experiences. We recognize that in order for every student to achieve excellence and experience a positive sense of self and belonging that they must be in regular attendance at school because "Every School Day Counts". This year using the "Every School Day Counts" initiative it is our hope to raise awareness in our school about the importance of regular school attendance as it pertains to student achievement, a sense of belonging and overall well-being for all our students. We will be working actively to increase student attendance at York River. Our hope is that through early intervention and collaborative problem solving we will reduce chronic absenteeism by fostering positive relationships with student and their families and remove barriers to regular attendance at school.
Remember that at York River, "Every School Day Counts!"
Welcome to York River Public School, 2016-2017
September is always a very exciting time for us at York River Public School.
We want to welcome all those students who are joining us for the 2016-2017 - our returning Otters, as well as our new Otters to kindergarten, Extended French, Grade 7 from Bird's Creek, Coe Hill, Hermon and Maynooth Public School and those students joining us from other areas. A special welcome to those families who are new to our community.
The school office will be open from Monday, August 29 to Friday, September 2 (excluding Wednesday, August 31) for families who wish to register their children.
We are excited to welcome a few new staff members:
As always we will begin the year with 'Character Camp' and daily assemblies, a time to come together with our Otters and talk about roles, responsibilities and expectations at York River Public School.
All students will receive a school planner during the first week of school. These planners are a great way to develop organizational skills and a wonderful tool for communications between home and school. We are asking for $2 to offset the cost of the planners.
During the first week of school Student Information sheets will be coming home. We ask that you check these important data forms over, made any necessary changes and return the to the school as soon as possible. It is important that we have up to date information and phone numbers for each of our students.
School Council is a great way to get involved in your child's school. Nomination forms will be coming home with our September newsletter. Please consider joining us. Our first meeting on Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30 pm in our library.
Please know if you have any questions and / or concerns throughout the year we are always here to help you. Do not hesitate to call the school and ask for Marion Wilson, Principal or Sarika Henry, Vice Principal.
