This is an important website where you can
find agenda notes, school notices, Arabic
notes, upcoming important dates, documents
and any other school-related items or notes
Please check Weebly daily!
- Check your child’s agenda every day and sign it to make sure their work is done
and materials are brought to class
- Check Weebly every day for important notices or documents
- Do not do your child’s work for them, write their homework for them, or correct
their work. It is a learning process. You can sit with them while they go their
homework and answer questions they may have.
- If your child cannot get their work done, write a note in the agenda. It will be
due the following day.
- If your child is sick, they should not be at school. They can make up the
work/lessons when they come back. Students should also be dressed
appropriately for the weather.
- With winter coming, students need TWO pairs of shoes. One for indoor
(RUNNING SHOES) and one for outdoor (BOOTS). It would be helpful to always have
an extra pair of sock and gloves in your child’s backpack at all times so they do
not forget them.
- We are a NUT FREE school, do not send anything with any kind of nuts to school
with your child. Also, students should not be bringing candy as snacks.
- Write in your agenda daily and show it to your parents so they can sign it

not jeans, tights or jogging pants. Girls in grade 4 must wear a WHITE hijab
at all times.
