Kindergarten Orientation:  Tomorrow, Thursday, May 23rd, 9:10 – 10:15 am in the gym for all upcoming 2019-20 Kindergarten students.  Please remember to bring your completed “Welcome to Cordova Bay” information sheet for your child and a photo of them.  Looking forward to having you all!

Saanich Peninsula Health Immunization Records:  Confidential envelopes will be sent home in the next day or two for students in Grade 1-4 from the Saanich Peninsula Health Unit.  Please keep this immunization information for your records.

PAC On-Line School Supply Ordering for 2019-20:  On-line ordering is now OPEN for ordering School Supplies for the 2019-20 school year.  Monk Office provides 10% of the on-line sales of school supply kits to our school Parent Advisory Committee (PAC).  If you wish, families can order and pay on-line for their child’s school supplies and they will be delivered to school the first week of September.   See the attached PDF for more information on how to access the online ordering.  Should you wish to not order on-line, school supply lists will be available at the school office at the beginning of June.

Lost & Found Items:  There are a lot of items in the Lost & Found!  Please come into the school during drop-off or pick-up to view the items on the tables by the gym.  Items not claimed by the end of June will be donated to charity.

Bike to School Week - May 27-31:  Students are encouraged to bike to school during this week.  Jodi Meacher, a parent volunteer, will be handing out stickers at the front of the school to give to those students that have biked.  The stickers can be placed on the poster by the Lost & Found.

Families Leaving Cordova Bay Elementary School:  If you have a child in Kindergarten to Grade 4 and your family will not be returning to Cordova Bay Elementary in September, could you please let the school office know asap for planning purposes.  Thank you.

Class Placement Request for 2019-20:  Click on this LINK for information from Mrs. Heron regarding Class Placement Requests for next year:  

Dirty Wall Project:  Please bring in any loose change weighing down your pockets or purses and deposit it into the bin you see on the gathering desk just across from the office. This change will go to the Dirty Wall Project that we have been learning about this year. Nickels and dimes add up to dollars. Please help. Thank you.

A Request from the Gardening Club:  Please bring in your empty, clean PLASTIC milk/juice jugs with lids. We need them for watering the garden. They can be tossed over the fence into the garden and we will organize them. Thank you!

The Power of Why:  The Amazing Power of Music

Reporting of Student Absences:  A friendly reminder for families to ensure that you contact the school Safe Arrival Line at 250 658-4002 if your child will be absent from school.  If you’re child will be away for more than one day, please ensure that you call of all the days that you child will be away.  This is a huge help to the Safe Arrival Parent Volunteers.   Thank you!
