Volume 2
Newsletter #1                                                                                           Sept 19, 2017
Welcome back!

This is my first September start up as principal at South Broadview Elementary.  The 3 months I spent here after Spring Break last year was great and I’m looking forward to this school year.  It is great to be working with wonderful students, staff, parents and community.   I truly enjoy being at your school and a part of this great community.  I’m looking forward to our upcoming school year and I’m excited about our school goals.  We will work as a team to help our students achieve success in writing and also increasing our culture of healthy living, social responsibility and student attendance.  Please stop by the office or give me a call if you ever have any questions.  I’m also available before or after school (usually on outside supervision) and can be found outside at the front or around the playground.


As you are well aware, we had a large number of families move into the area resulting in many students wanting to come to South Broadview.  Due to the significant number of students, South Broadview received a 12th. division.  We are very fortunate to have this extra division for the school year.  Having said that, we are at capacity in many of our divisions to start the school year.

Our staffing for the upcoming 2017 - 18 school year is in place.

Meet the Teacher BBQ: Thursday, September 28 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.

We hope that all families can join us for a BBQ dinner.  This event takes place at the school from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Thursday, September 28th. The gathering is an informal meet and greet and is a great opportunity for parents and staff to see each other.  It is also a great way to meet our new parents, our new kindergarten parents and reconnect with all our parents at this event.  Parents can meet their child’s teacher in their classroom 5:30 – 6:30.


Forms have gone home with students to be completed by parents/guardians.  These forms are important as this provides contact information for the school.  Please fill out and return to the office.  Thank you for your support with this.  It is very important that we have all the correct information in case we need to contact parents in emergency situations.
Kindergarten Registration for September 2018

New this year we are having kindergarten registration on Monday, October 2.  This is for kindergarten age students starting in September 2018.  Traditionally this was during the first week of April.  Please bring care card and birth certificate and Patty will collect your information and register your child.  All registrations on the first day no matter what time of the day will be on an equal basis.


For newsletters, we like to send them out on email.  This way, the newsletter will get home to parents and it reduces the amount of paper being used.  Please make sure the office has your email address up to date and on file as this will be the email address that the newsletter goes to.  If you wish to have a paper copy, please let us know and we can do that too.  Other information from time to time may also be sent by email as well so please keep an eye on your mailbox.

South Broadview PAC

Our PAC would like to remind all parents that volunteers are encouraged and needed for all PAC run events. At this time, we have openings on the executive for vice president and treasurer and other openings such as DPAC representative, fundraiser coordinator.  If you would like more information on how you can become involved with the PAC volunteer team please contact Marcie Zimmer, PAC president at 250 833 6429.  Your help is always appreciated!  Our next PAC meeting will be on Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00 pm in the library.  As well, if you would like to join the PAC Face book page, please give us a like.

Our 2017 – 2018 PAC committee is:

School Fees

Thanks to the many families who have already paid their activity and school supply fees this year. If you have not yet done this please send a cheque or cash to school. The fees are as follows:

Just a reminder, families do not purchase school supplies.  Instead, we charge a school supply fee of $25.00 per grade 2-5student/$20.00 per grade K-1 student.  This is considerably cheaper for families who would otherwise need to go out on their own to buy school supplies.  We also charge an activity fee of $25.00 per student.  The total is $45.00 for Kindergarten and grade 1 students and $50.00 for students in grade 2 to 5.  Morw information regarding fees is at the end of this newsletter.

We have a teacher on supervision every morning from 7:50 – 8:13 therefore students should be arriving at this time.  We are unable to have staff supervising the playground area prior to this time so students should not be dropped off or coming to school too early.    Thanks for your cooperation.

Breakfast Program

We are very fortunate to have a breakfast program again this year and it is open to all students.  Marci Meadows makes a variety of breakfast items such as scrambled eggs, cereal, toast, fresh fruit and yoghurt for students who need more breakfast in the morning.  We are able to support this program due to the financial support of the Breakfast Club of Canada.  Doors to the breakfast room open up at 7:50 in the morning and it goes until the morning bell.
