Kindergarten officially began on August 12th at Side Creek. In order to introduce the students to the staff members and their rooms, the kinder teachers took the students on a quest to find the "Queen of the School" - the principal! Students were guided around the building to meet and watch as staff tried on the glitter slipper to find it's owner. Finally, after searching - the kindergarteners finally found Ms. Gariepy! (Students won't soon forget the staff members after seeing them all try to fit into the glittering slipper!)
This activity introduces the new students to important people around the building and makes a great beginning activity for the students. There are nearly seventy kindergarten students coming to Side Creek this year.
Student Drop Off/Pick Up Options and Procedures
The new Drop off/pick up procedures (Kiss and Go) at Side Creek worked with great success on the first week of the 2014-15 school year. Special thanks to all of our parents who followed the procedures correctly. We are pleased there were no real problems in the first week and hope to continue with the procedures throughout the school year. These procedures were drawn up with the safety of your children in mind. The links above will give you complete information as to what the procedures are, and a map showing the correct traffic pattern. Below are pictures of how the drop off/pick up procedures went in the first week of school.
This year's "Back to School Night" will be held on Thursday, August 14th, from 6pm to 8 pm. Parents will have a chance to meet new staff members as well as our new assistant principal, Ms. Anne Ferris. All parents are encouraged to come to the school and participate in the scheduled activities. Please click on the link below to see the "Back to School" flyer.
