Our first day of school will be a full day on September 1st, 2015. Please pack a lunch as we are a closed campus and our concession will not be up and running until later in the month. Our bell schedule for next year will remain the same. On the first day of classes Elementary students are to gather on the tarmac at the back of the school while the Junior High Students will gather on the field beside the tarmac. Elementary and Junior High Grade Levels will be posted. Students will gather with their grade level group and the grade level teachers will read out their class list and then proceed with their teacher to their classroom. Staff and teachers will be available to direct you. In your homeroom there will be information handed out by the teacher regarding school procedures and classroom schedules. Students’ school supply lists are located on our website http://schools.cssd.ab.ca/stalphonsus, if you wish to pre-purchase the package please submit online by June 30, 2015. Pre-purchasing is optional and items may be purchased on your own. Please bring the basic supplies for the first day. Students will not be required to bring all items on their first day as lockers will be assigned in the first week. Junior High Students may purchase a lock from the school for $5.00 or they can bring their own lock that they have purchased.
Each student will receive a package from their homeroom/T.A. Teacher in the first couple of days with our September newsletter, forms that are required to be signed and returned to their teacher and a fee sheet. Please see the newsletter for the fee payment schedule. We encourage you to become familiar with our school web site as it offers important information regarding school newsletters, upcoming events, field trip permission forms and links to D2L.
On behalf of our staff, we would like to sincerely thank you for choosing St. Alphonsus School. We are sure you will find it to be an exciting and rewarding choice. Please ensure you notify your current school that you will be attending St. Alphonsus next year so that your file can be forwarded to us.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school. Blessings for a wonderful summer!
Mr. Michael LeVangie
