Rainy Day Dropoff

In the morning, when you drop off your child on rainy days, we will bring them inside prior to the 8:35 bell. Please note that the entrance, on rainy days, will be the main entrance by the office. When grades 5 and 6 enter, they will go to the lobby by the gym. When all other grades come in they will remain in the main lobby area.
Thank you,
Nick Martin – Principal

Adopt a School

Great news, Parkside families….

We’ve been adopted by Coles Bookstore in the County Fair Mall!!

Beginning this Saturday, September 15th, Coles will be collecting donations in their store and online in support of Parkside’s library. ALL donations collected during the 3 ½ week campaign will be given to Parkside in the form of Indigo gift cards for the purchase of new books for our school library.

In addition, for every $20.00 that is donated, Coles/Indigo will give us an extra $10.00. That means that a donation of $20.00 will translate into $30.00 for our library!

We will be having some in-store events on Saturdays throughout the campaign, which runs from September 15th until Sunday, October 7th. Our first event will be this Saturday!!

Donations can be made at Coles or online at any time, but we’d love to see people at the store this Saturday to say hello and to support our school. Any donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated and will help us buy new books for the library.

To learn more about the Adopt-a-School program or to make an online donation, go to adoptaschool.indigo.ca

More information will follow. Please keep checking the school’s Facebook page and the school website for updates. Also, follow us on our fundraising progress on our Adopt a School page at        https://adoptaschool.indigo.ca/eng/schools/278

End of Day Update

Thank you to all parents who dropped their children off at school this morning.

I had mentioned that I would make an announcement regarding bussing for this afternoon. Many of the kinks have been ironed out with bussing. Your children will go home as scheduled on the busses that we have listed.

Just a reminder for any parents that are picking up their children; pick up is at the walker door (south west exit) at 2:45. Should there be any change in your pick up that you have planned, please let the office know by 2:00.


Thank you.
