    Synervoice message for Sunday, September 11, 2016
    by Blair Lloyd - Saturday, 10 September 2016, 5:18 PM

    Good evening, this message is intended for the families of Beattie elementary located on McGill road. This is Mr. Lloyd with an update on class configurations for the 2016-2017 school year. I want to thank all of our families for their patience as we worked through class configurations and student class placements. Due to an increase of enrolment here at Beattie Elementary., the school was issued a new classroom late Friday afternoon. As a consequence, on Monday, the school will be ready to have grade 1-7 students join their new classrooms. Instead of posting class lists on the front windows as was originally planned, I would like students to go to the classroom that they were in last week. After announcements, they will be assigned their new classroom. As planned, Kindergarten students will begin full days starting Wednesday.

    Thank you for patience and continued support during this process. I look forward to an amazing year!

    Have a good evening,

    Mr. Lloyd

    4. Attendance Tues. Sept. 6 and Wed. Sept. 7 is crucial. We will know more after the start of these two mornings how our enrollment is looking and if we can start in new divisions as soon as possible.

    5. Communication will be through newlsletters, website and the School Facebook page. I do email using MYEDBC to be sure to check your email as I sent an email last week. Please ensure the secretary has your most current email addresses in our system. This is extremely important.

    Sincerely, Mr. Lloyd

    First Week of School
    by Blair Lloyd - Wednesday, 31 August 2016, 10:04 AM

    First Week of School

    Any families new to our area (or from the former Beattie School of the Arts) should ensure they come to register at the school starting August 29th. Please bring two pieces of identification to show your address (BC hydro bill and driver's license for example) and please bring your child's care card and birth certificate. Please come anytime after 10:30 am.

    The first day of school is TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 6th. Doors will open at 10:20 and school will begin at 10:30. All children should report to the gym. On WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 7th, all children will report back to their last year's teacher's classroom again and then we will spend Wednesday reviewing school beliefs and reminding children about our school Code of Conduct.

    Our hope as a staff is to finalize class placements as soon as we can. Enrolment dictates whether we can go ahead and post the classes or we need to wait for more staffing if enrolment has increased over the summer months and we can no longer accommodate the demand with the present number of classrooms. Attendance on Tuesday Sept. 6 and Wednesday Sept. 7 is very important for us. I will be in touch via synervoice so all will know when the new class lists will be posted and when we can start in our new divisions.
