EMERGENCY CLOSURE

Parents and schools need to work together for the betterment of the students. Parents play an important role in providing support and building the confidence of their children. Parents should check some of the tips or activities they can use to develop their children’s confidence and improve their school experience.

Regular Communication Between School and Home on a Daily Basis

Student agendas will be sent home on a daily basis. Regular communication between classroom teachers and parents/guardians is expected in order to facilitate communication about your child’s progress.  Please check your child’s agenda daily for memos from school. *Read and Respond and Math homework is sent home Monday to Thursday every week unless otherwise notified by the classroom teachers.

No Peanut or Peanut by-Products Allowed at School

Tsi Snaihne School is an allergen aware school. There are children in attendance who suffer from severe and life threatening allergies to peanuts and nut products. Please, carefully read all packaging of food included in your child’s lunch or snack. We are also asking the school community to be sensitive in the use of scent, perfume and other related products as there are children with asthma who react to the use of these products.

No Microwaves Available for the Heating of School Lunches

In addition to safety concerns, heating of individual lunches takes valuable nutritional time. We want to ensure safety and that the entirety of the lunch break can be used by students for the purpose of eating.

Monthly School Calendar

A monthly school calendar will be sent home at the beginning of each month to make sure all members of our school community are aware of special events and activities. Please check the monthly calendar for our Parent Committee meetings – everyone is welcome to attend.

All Students Require

In-door shoes and a school bag – an extra set of clothing for students in Early Years.

Solution Teams

The Community Connections Solution team reaches out to and organizes community partnerships that help accomplish school goals.  The Community Connections team creates a systematic method for identifying and organizing partnerships, maximizing the ultimate impact on student achievement.

Notable community organizations are CKON (Diane McDonald), Tarbell Management Group (Brandon Tarbell), and Twin Leaf (Carey Terrance). They each donated gift certificates to reward student success each month. Students were recognized for reaching their monthly reading goal, consistently displaying positive character traits and achieving academic excellence.

Chief Ryan Jacobs took the time to be a volunteer listener to help students reach their reading goal.
