"Hot Off The Press!" - January 2015

Happy 2015!  I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas and New Year.  The weather was cooperative, for the most part, making travelling far less stressful than last Christmas season.  A New Year marks new beginnings and a fresh start.  For many of us, we have still managed to follow through with our New Year’s resolutions.  Before we know it, report cards will be coming home again!  With these cooler temperatures and wet weather, comes the need for boots, hats, mittens, and extra mittens.  Thanks for remembering to pack these! The winter season also means that our traditional Burkevale ski days will begin.  There will be four ski days this year.  The dates for these are listed below.  On behalf of the Burkevale staff, we would like to wish you a very Happy New Year!

What few people know is that: “of all the types of parent engagement…learning at home has the biggest impact on student achievement.”

The Parent Tool Kit, which accompanies this Guidebook, has been developed to help promote parent engagement and to help parents understand the role that they can play in helping their child learn.

"Hot Off The Press!" - October 2014

It is hard to believe that our first month of school is already over.  Students seem to be adjusting well to the new routines of the classroom and school yard.  Teachers have commented on the fantastic communication with parents via the agendas.  This home-to-school connection is so important – thanks for your vigilant efforts!
