First Day of School – Elementary Students

(grade 1 to 5)

Kindergarten: Kindergarten students do not attend school in the first week of school. Instead, there will be a ‘gradual entry’ so that the children have time to become accustomed to their new school life. Letters regarding gradual entry have been given to parents who have registered their child. Please contact the office if you have any questions.

Returning Students: For the first few days of school, returning students will return to their last year’s teacher and classroom. They will stay there until the school board announces that schools can move the students to their new classroom and teacher. All effort is made for this to be done as quickly as possible, usually in the first week of school. When the warning bell rings at 8:40, students should line up in their last year classroom line. They should look for their last year’s teacher or a staff member holding up the name of last year’s teacher.

New Students: The warning bell will ring at 8:40. At this time, all new students go to the elementary gym. Once there, they will be brought to their temporary classroom, where they will stay until the school board announces that the schools can move the students to their new classroom and teacher. All effort is made for this to be done as quickly as possible, usually in the first week of school.

Elementary School Supplies: 

Teachers have purchased bulk supplies and parents are asked to pay cover these costs. These supplies will be set up by teaching staff in the classrooms.

  • Kindergarten: paid directly to the office
          • Payment can be made via cheque (payable to JS PAC) or through the Hot lunch site. www.johnstubbs.hotlunches.net/admin

            **If you have not already done so, register for an account using the school access code:JSPAC2018**
            Grades 1-5: Bulk orders for each grade level paid directly to John Stubbs PAC

      First day of School – Middle School Student

    • (grade 6 to 8)

    When the warning bell rings at 8:40, all middle school students should go to the middle school gym. Once there, they should look for their name on the posted class lists and then go stand with their new teacher. There will be a short assembly before the students move on to their new classrooms.
