You will be able to book times with your child’s or children’s teacher(s) beginning Thursday, November 13th at 7 a.m.

Please visit the following website:

You will need to set up an account for yourself, and then enter information about each of your children. Afterwards, you simply need to select your child’s teacher and click on an available time slot to schedule an interview.

In our forces and structures unit, the grade 5 students are exploring different types of towers and bridges. Lots of fun, some frustration, and learning!
