First Day Procedures
Tuesday, September 1, will be the first day of school for the 2015/2016 school year. In order to make the morning go as smoothly as possible we wanted to let everyone know what the procedure for the first day of school will be. In order to facilitate assigning almost 800 students to classrooms we will be doing a staggered entry. Please note procedures may vary by division.
Junior High 8:30 AM- Students will meet on the back tarmac and will be called in by grade to the small and large gym. Homeroom teachers will call out names and take students to their classrooms.
Division II- Grades 4,5,6 8:45 AM– Division II teachers will be outside on the tarmac behind the school. One teacher from each grade will be at a table, their grade will be clearly posted. Students will “check in” with the teacher who will give them the name of their homeroom teacher and direct them where to line up. All other grade teachers will be in the location of the line up to assist students. Once the majority of the students are assembled homeroom teachers will walk their students inside. Staff members without a homeroom will be circulating to assist those who have any questions and help direct students.
Division I- Grades 1, 2, 3- 9:00 AM- Division I teachers will be outside on the tarmac next to the playground. One teacher from each grade will be at a table, their grade will be clearly posted. Students will “check in” with the teacher who will give them the name of their homeroom teacher and direct them where to line up. All other grade teachers will be in the location of the line up to assist students. Once the majority of the students are assembled homeroom teachers will walk their students inside. Staff members without a homeroom will be circulating to assist those who have any questions and help direct students.
Kindergarten- Using Conference Manager (link on school website) parents will sign up for an interview time. An email will be sent in late August indicating which teacher you will sign up for.
Blessed Cardinal Newman School with the assistance of school council, will again be offering the opportunity to pre-purchase school supplies for all returning students grades 1 – 6. Our firm, Write-on Stationery will purchase, package and deliver all of your children’s school supplies to Blessed Cardinal Newman for the next year.
The student supply list was provided and checked by the teachers at Blessed Cardinal Newman. You can be assured that everything on the order form is quality merchandise (Crayola, etc.) and that the price offered is competitive with what is available on the market. Please note that all prices include GST.
NEW! You can now place your order on-line at www.write-on.ca.
If you do not order on-line, your order and payment must be submitted to your homeroom teacher by June 17, 2015 Sorry no late orders will be accepted at the school. Late orders may still be submitted online or sent directly to Write-on Stationery. All individual orders and payments will be forwarded directly to the supplier immediately following this deadline.
More information about ordering can be found when you select a school supply list below.
Hello, this year students will have the opportunity to select their junior high option courses online using Google Forms. Students will need to use the Calgary Catholic Google log on information to access the forms. A brief description of each option is provided in the link below. If you have any questions please contact the office.
The following links are to the forms where students will sign up. Please note that once an option is full the selection will no longer appear on the form. Also, ensure you are signing into the correct grade, as options are different at each grade level. For example, current grade 6 students would access the grade 7 link and current grade 7 students would access the grade 8 link.
We would like all selections made no later than Friday, June 5. Links can be accessed from our website and d2L as well.
