Upcoming September Events

Open House

We hope to see all of our families this Thursday Sept. 20 for our Open House.  Students are welcome to take their families for a tour of the school and their classrooms between 6:00 and 6:40 and then come and enjoy the potluck desserts in the gym a brief presentation and introduction of the staff from 6:40-7:30. Hope to see you then!


Terry Fox

Our AES Terry Fox run is scheduled for Friday, September 21st at 12:30.  We will begin in the gym with a reminder of why we run and then head outside for a school wide run/ walk.  Students wishing to make a donation may do so and may hand in donations to their classroom teacher.


Orange Shirt Day

Friday, September 28th we are celebrating Orange Shirt Day. We will have a short presentation during our September Celebration assembly at 8:30.  It was fantastic to see the “Sea of Orange” at our school  last year – we are hoping many students and staff will once again  support the day by wearing orange.

First Day of School

Students will return to their previous year teacher’s classroom on the first day of school. Once we determine if any students have moved away or are new to the school. Our hope is to have students placed in their new classes by the second day.  Once our final number of divisions are confirmed for the 2018-19 school year the SD No. 83 Director of Instruction will give the school permission to place the students in their new classrooms. Our goal is to post class lists in the evening of Tuesday September 4, 2018.
