School News:

INFORMATION NEEDED – We need to know if you are registering a Kindergarten Student at our school for the 2020-2021 school year.

Hello Parents and Guardians,

As you are probably now aware, French Immersion Kindergarten Registration begins on January 13th.

SD #62 Enrollment Priorities state that students with siblings registered at our school in the 2019-2020 school year have priority when enrolling in our Kindergarten program. This does not include students who are in Grade 8, as they will be going onto high school next year.  Please see the district’s enrollment webpage http://www.sd62.bc.ca/parents/registration/student-enrolment-priorities/

To help us understand how many siblings we can expect to register at our school, please email our School Student Records Clerk, Deb Israel at dlisrael@sd62.bc.ca right away and tell her:

  • the name of the kindergarten child you are enrolling, and
  • the name of their sibling(s).

Please note: this is for our school’s information only.  You must officially register your Kindergarten child online starting January 13th at: http://www.sd62.bc.ca/parents/registration/.

We thank you in advance for your help in this matter,

The École John Stubbs Office Team


Messages from the library:

The annual Read-a-Thon will be taking place at John Stubbs from January 20-25. One aspect of this fantastic week of literacy is the Book Swap. We are asking families to donate gently used French or English books . All students will then get to choose one book to take home and keep. Donation boxes will be available in each classroom, the library and the main office. All book donations are greatly appreciated.

Library books over the holidays – If students have library books at home over the holiday season, please do not take them with you if you are travelling out of town.

KINDERGARTEN AND LATE FRENCH IMMERSION REGISTRATION

Kindergarten Registration Placement
Families that have registered for French Immersion Kindergarten will be receiving confirmation of placement by end of day Friday January 24, 2020. Those that do not secure a placement at John Stubbs will have the opportunity to register at their catchment English school on Monday January 27, 2020.

FRENCH IMMERSION KINDERGARTEN, LATE ENTRY FRENCH IMMERSION AND NATURE KINDERGARTEN
January 13TH – 17TH, 2020

GENERAL KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
January 27TH – 31ST, 2020

In the past all Kindergarten registration has taken place at the same time in SD 62 but this created challenges for parents and caregivers whose children did not get a spot in one of the specialized programs due to limited space and high demand.

Moving the registration dates for Nature Kindergarten and French Immersion to the earlier dates will allow those families ample time to participate in General Kindergarten Registration.

Parents will receive a letter home with more information next week.  PAC is asking for donations of gently used or new items that can be used as gifts for parents and siblings of all ages.  We will also happily accept gift cards or cash so that we can ensure enough gifts are available for kids to purchase.  Donations can be dropped off at the school office between December 2-6.  Volunteers are also needed to help wrap gifts and re-stock items each shopping day.  Please sign up here if you can help:  https://signup.com/go/jesSsMu

Dear Parents and Guardians of Ecole John Stubbs Memorial,

Recently, Mathieu Laframboise (Outdoor Education Teacher and Grade 7) and I (Jodie Montgomery, School Counsellor) applied to our PAC community for the purpose of funding for the school garden, which we are beginning to bring back to life.  We have generously been given $500 and also the recommendation of requesting items to be given in the form of donation from our parent community. This is a wonderful suggestion, and after consultation we have generated the following ‘wish list’ of items that we believe would greatly assist us in bringing the garden vision to fruition!  We are hopeful that parents (or grandparents, or anyone interested in sharing) may have some of these items that they no longer have use for:

-seeds
-nails
-untreated wood (minimum length of 5 ft)
-hammers
-rebar
-sod cutting tool
-soil suitable for planting
-medium to large pots (minimum size of 14” and up)
-hand held rakes (approximately 10” in length)
-benches
-trellis
-garden gnomes J
-garden gloves in good to new condition

We are excited to have an amazing, empty canvas of a garden on our school property that is ready for our students to be part of the creation process.  If you have any of the above items that you are able to donate, please email Mathieu or myself and we will organize where they can be dropped off.

With appreciation,

Mathieu Laframboise and Jodie Montgomery
