Our first annual “Sneak Peek” is a great success!

Dear Crusaders!

Thank you to all of our student and parent volunteers, and to all of you who came to our first annual Sneak Peek!  It was a huge success!

If you did not get a chance to pick up your package, please stop by the foyer on Tuesday morning before the bell to get it, or find a teacher on the first day.  We will help guide you to the right place!

We are looking forward to seeing all of you on Tuesday morning!  Have a great long weekend and rest up – school is almost here!

First Annual “Sneak Peek” is tomorrow at Canadian Martyrs!

Dear Crusaders!

We have GREAT NEWS!  Our enrollment is on the rise!  Last June we had 316 students attending Canadian Martyrs and as of today, that number is 353!  It says a great deal about our community and our school!  Canadian Martyrs is a great place to be!

Please be reminded that tomorrow, Wednesday, August 30, 2017 is our first annual “Sneak Peek” at Canadian Martyrs Elementary School.  Please drop in at any time from 10:00am to 5:00pm to pick up your package.

This package contains several items:

  • the confidential information that you receive each and every year.  Please take a look at it, ensure that the information that we have is current and accurate, and make any necessary changes (e.g., address, phone numbers, etc.).
  • permission forms / release forms for Church trips, internet usage, medical alerts, etc.  Please complete all forms and return as soon as possible.
  • information about which class you will be in this year and who your teacher will be!  Please note, that as enrollment continues to change, this may need to change as well.

Please note:

  • that the classrooms and hallways will not be open for tours tomorrow.  We are still working hard to get the building ready for our kids and there is a lot of work underway.  Thank you for understanding!
  • due to the confidential information contained in the packages, you will not be able to pick up packages for other students unless you have a written letter from the family.
  • We would like all forms to be returned no later than Friday, September 8, 2017.

I would like to thank in advance Mrs. Van Bargen for getting all of the packages prepared for our many students, as well as to the many volunteers that will, no doubt, make tomorrow a huge success!  We are looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow between 10:00am and 5:00pm!

Welcome Back!

Our First Annual “Sneak Peek” is almost here!

Dear Crusaders Community!
I hope you are thoroughly enjoying your Summer Break!

I want to remind all of you about our first annual “Sneak Peek” event that will be held at Canadian Martyrs on Wednesday, August 30th from 10:00am until 5:00pm.  Please stop by at some point on Wednesday, August 30th to pick up your necessary paperwork and find out who your new teacher will be!

On the first day of school, students will go directly to their classroom after the morning bell.

  • Please note that only the foyer of the school will be open to pick up your paperwork.
  • Classrooms will not be available for tours.
  • Please make every attempt to return your paperwork with your child on the first day of school.
  • If you are making arrangements to have someone else pick up your child’s paperwork, please ensure that they have a signed note stating that this is okay to do so.

We look forward to seeing all of you on the 30th!  Enjoy August Crusaders!

Back to School Shopping is here already!

Hello Crusaders!

If you are like me, you are totally shocked to see the “back to school” signs in stores already!  Please know that at Canadian Martyrs we order the school supplies that your children need to actively participate in school.  Please resist the urge to spend a large amount of money on school supplies.  A good pair of indoor and outdoor shoes are always necessary, along with a sturdy backpack and appropriate winter gear (it won’t be long and that will be on the shelves as well!)

If there are any necessary supplies, we will let you know on the first day.  Take a breath, enjoy August!
