Principal and Vice-Principal’s  Message clip_image001.png 
Karen Spragg and  Suzanne Kennedy

October’s weather felt like summer as EPESCS students participated in numerous activities.   All grade three students participated in Swim to Survive, a program offered by the  Lifesaving Society to ensure that all children possess minimal skills.  Students participated in invitational and regional cross country meets.  EPESCS students were the overall tournament winners at the regional meet—congratulations to our runners!  Both the girls and the boys soccer tournaments took place—the girls placed second and the boys third. 

As students were gearing up for Halloween, they were also contributing to the “We Scare Hunger” campaign run by the Me-to-We club.  The club collects non-perishable items for the local food bank to ensure that no one goes hungry.  The Scholastic Book Fair ran for four days this week from Monday, October 30th until Thursday, November 2nd in order to raise funds to add to the assortment of reading materials available to students in the library. 

A reminder that Progress Reports go home on Friday, November 17th.  QSP cookie dough order items will arrive on Wednesday, November 8th.  More information will be sent through the Remind app and posted on the website. 

Parent teacher interviews will take place during the evening of November 23rd from 4-7 pm and on Friday, November 24th from 9-12 pm.  The school will be using parentinteview.com to arrange meeting times with teachers. 

Wednesday, November 15th, EPESCS will be opening our doors to next year’s junior kindergarten students during the Let’s Learn clinic from 12:30-5:30 pm in the gym. 



Halloween at EPESCS
There were two spooky parades over the past few days at EPESCS.  The Kindergarten students marched earily through the halllways of Saugeen Central wearing their costumes on Thursday, October 26th, and on Tuesday, October 31st, the primary students amazed and terrified students and staff with their Halloween garb.

Parking Requests:  Please note that the custodial staff are requesting that if you are parking in the parent lot, kindly do not park your car in front of the dumpsters.  For two weeks the company that empties the dumpsters has been unable to access them as there are cars parked in front of the bins.   In addition,  kindly do not park or drop off your child in the bussing zone from 8:30-9:00 am and from 3:00-3:40 pm.

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
