Dear Families of Signal Hill Elementary. 

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING POSTPONED

Due to the ongoing BC Teacher’s Strike the executive of the SHE Parent Advisory Council have determined that the Annual General Meeting that had previously been rescheduled for this coming Tuesday September 9th, will be postponed until classes resume.  


LANDSCAPING OPPORTUNITY

It’s time to plan trees as part of the landscaping phase of the Intermediate Playground Project. 

We have funding in place as a result of a successful grant application last year with Tree Canada.  We have have a total budget of $15,000 and need help to manage the project.   Do you know an individual or local landscaping company who would be interested in taking on this project?  Please forward any inquiries to SignalHillPAC@gmail.com

School Supply Fundraiser

SchoolSupplies

Dear Parents,
The Parent Advisory Council would like to extend an invitation for you to purchase your school supplies in advance.

We have filed the school supply lists for each grade with a company called “Teacher’s File.” They pre-package the supplies (including the specific brand name items requested by teachers) into individual student bags and deliver them to the school. The bags are then distributed to the correct classroom, so that when your child arrives for school in September, their supply bag will be waiting for them!

Our school receives 10% of our overall order back as a fundraiser. So in addition to the ease in which you can order, and the great price on the quality items you will be receiving, you are also contributing to school fundraising by participating in this worth while program!

TO ORDER:

  • Go online to www.teachersfile.ca
  • Click on the School Supplies link
  • Enter “Signal Hill Elementary” in the School Name field – Click Go.
  • Select the appropriate grade
  • Click “Online Form
  • Place your order

This year, we are accepting ONLINE ORDERS ONLY.
Order Deadline: July 15th, 2014

Orders received after this date will be subject to a $5 processing fee and is only available while supplies last.

Questions? Please contact the PAC at SignalHillPAC@gmail.com

Specific to students at Signal Hill Elementary:

“Elementary (Kindergarten to Grade 7) Final Report Cards
The recent ESO was limited to the provision of final marks for Grades 10 to 12 students. However, many of our teachers had already completed their full or condensed report cards prior to the June 16th, 2014 walk out. As such, some of our Kindergarten to grade 7 students will receive a version of a year-end report card. All other students will receive a letter from the school principal indicating their promotion statement and reiterating that their year-end progress information will be provided in some format following the labour
dispute. Your school principal will contact you to outline your school’s report distribution process. We are hoping to have any reports ready for distribution between Monday, June 30, 2014 and Friday, July 4, 2014.
We realize how important reporting is to parents. If you do not receive a Report Card, your principal will inform you as soon as we are able to have teachers confirm each child’s year end information.”
