Dear Parents and Students of Gold Bar School,
It’s hard to believe that we have been back in school for two months! Our students have participated in some great activities to begin the year such as: Fit In, our Massive Buddy-Read for Read In week, the Terry Fox run, as well as valuable and informative field trips both in and out of the classroom. Students have been working hard to demonstrate their skills and have already done a practice HLAT writing assessment, a district practice numeracy assessment and our grade threes worked through the new provincial Student Learning Assessments. (whew!)
With your help, our students have settled into excellent routines including reading at home each night, using their agendas, arriving after 8:15 (when supervision begins), crossing the street safely, and adhering to our TEAMs expectations in all their interactions with staff and students! They are simply great kids!
I continue to be so appreciative of how Gold Bar parents pitch in however and whenever they can. We truly cannot thank you enough for helping out on field trips, with art projects, cutting and laminating, volunteering for our casino, being on our parent council, volunteering at Fit In and our community breakfast, and the list goes on!
There are a number of important dates and other information that can be found in our Parent Handbook available on SchoolZone. If you do not know your SchoolZone password, please contact us and we will be happy to provide it to you.
Lastly, please do not hesitate to speak to me about any concern or question you might have. We are committed to the best possible school experience for your child and open communication is a vital part of that!
Your partner in learning,
Gold Bar School
