Welcome Back, Wildcats ! 

Bon Retour, les Chats Sauvages.


We had a busy but successful first day.   Thank you for your support and understanding as both Ms. Kennedy and I learn the routines at Port Elgin Saugeen Central. 

A few reminders regarding the end of the day.  Kindly, pick up your child outside of the school!    Please do not enter the building as this adds to the congestion during a very busy part of the day.   Also, we request that parents/guardians call before 2 pm if there is a change of pick up arrangements at the end of the day. 

When visiting the school, all adults who are not staff must check in at the office and pick up a visitor’s badge so that we can ensure the safety of all students.

Please note that there is a form to be filled in at the end of this newsletter if you are interested in paper copies.  Otherwise, the newsletters will be available at pte.bwdsb.on.ca the FIRST FRIDAY of every month.  We will send a note through REMIND letting you know that the newsletter has been posted.   




20170919_75416_0.jpgEPECPS students will be participating in our annual Terry Fox run on Thursday September 28th 2017.  Hopefully we won’t need it, but a rain datehas been set for Tuesday October 3, 2017.  As usual, our Wildcat family will be raising money for cancer research during our Toonies for Terry fundraising week September 25-28th.  Any donation is happily accepted and goes towards cancer research and hopefully someday finding a cure.  Thank you in advance for your support.

“I just wish people would realize that anything’s possible, if you try.”  ~Terry Fox

Are you the parent or caregiver of a 3 or 4 year old?
If so, then you should read this message.
 
“Let’s Learn” Kindergarten Registration in Grey and Bruce Counties will happen this Fall 2017 for school entry for September 2018, for all children born in 2014 (Junior Kindergarten) and for those children born in 2013 (Senior Kindergarten), if not already registered in JK.
 
Early registration gives you time to learn what you can do to help your child get ready for school.  At registration, you and your child can meet school staff, visit the school, and learn about community resources in your area.
 
New research tells us that the first five years of life are key to children’s healthy brain development and learning.  In fact, by age three a child’s brain is twice as active as an adult’s.  Make the most of this important time!  Spend time talking to, listening  to, and playing with your child.  Help a new generation of children spread their wings and soar through life.

Let’s Learn… about school
Let’s Learn… about healthy growth and development
Let’s Learn… about community resources
Let’s Learn… with our children
 
Port Elgin Saugeen Central will be hosting their clinic on
