Dear Muir Families,
We are down to the last few weeks of school and there is still a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done. From Track and Field meets (Area and Regional) and class excursions, to organizational matters relating to class placements, timetabling, end-of year-wrap-ups, graduations and farewells, Alexander Muir P.S. continues to be a place of excitement and energy!
We would like to remind parents that our Term 2 report cards will go out on Wednesday, June 24th. As a result of the current job action affecting elementary schools across the province and in York Region, the planned early release for students on June 25 is cancelled. On Thursday, June 25, 2015, schools will be open and classroom instruction will continue for the entire normal school day. Friday, June 26, 2015 will remain a PA Day. If your child is eligible for school transportation services, school buses and taxi services will continue according to the typical full day schedule. The school board has communicated this scheduling change to in-school child care centres, including before and after care providers. Please check with your provider directly to confirm arrangements for this date. We recognize that this may cause some inconvenience. Please be assured that we continue to have your child’s achievement, well-being and safety in mind.
In advance of our Grade 8 Graduation, we send Good Wishes to our graduates for their new adventures in High School. Also, as the busy days of June rush by, we would like to take some time, again in advance, to wish all of our families a safe and happy summer and look forward to working with you in the fall.
Don’t forget to honour a Dad or a significant person in your life on Father’s Day – Sunday, June 10th! Remember the Golden Rule: ‘Treat others the way you wish to be treated.’
