Back to School – September 2013

With only two weeks until the school doors re-open, it is time to start thinking of Fall and “back-to-school” routines. We trust that everyone has had a great summer break and look forward to another wonderful year at Bert Ambrose!
The first day of school for students in Grades 1-6 will be Tuesday, September 3 at 8:45 am and students will be dismissed at 10:45 am. Students will return to last year’s teacher or last year’s classroom if their teacher is no longer at Bert Ambrose.
*Mr. Filmer’s students will meet with Mrs. Lee in the portable.
*Mrs. Broderick’s students will meet with Mrs. Forster in Room 9 in the Primary wing.
*New students will meet with Mrs. Ollenberger and Ms. Trockstad in the library.
We hope to have class lists composed by the morning of Wednesday, September 4 and these will be posted inside the school that morning. (Please note, if we are not able to complete the process by Wednesday morning, students will return to last year’s teacher for an additional day.)
Kindergarten students and families will be contacted by the Kindergarten teachers during the first week of September and provided with full information about the transitional plan for their first week at Bert Ambrose. The first day of school for K students is Monday, September 9. Times for the transition week are as follows for KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS ONLY:
Monday, September 9 – Wednesday, September 11 = 8:45 am – 11:45 am
Thursday, September 12 – Friday, September 13 = 8:45 am – 1:00 pm
Regular school hours will begin on Monday, September 16 for Kindergarten classes.
