Welcome to 2019-2020
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community,
Welcome to a new school year. We look forward to another year of partnership with you.
The first week of school is a wonderful and exciting experience for all. Just as your children may have been counting sleeps, so too have the staff been preparing, many of them coming in this week and preparing their rooms to make them perfect for that first day.
Kindergarten Parents / Guardians:
First of all I would like to thank you for all the hard work you have done in preparing your child over the last four years for this new adventure. The staff and community are grateful to you for trusting us in partnering with you in educating your child. This is a big step and I would like to express my gratitude to you for choosing the Mount Pleasant School.
The first week is an important time for Kindergartners and therefore we start with a gradual entry.
Grade 1 – 7 Parents / Guardians:
Welcome back! We are excited for another school year and renewing and continuing our partnership with you in educating your children. Please remember that on the first day of school students will only be in their classrooms for one hour (9:00-10:00). Your children will be attending full time starting Wednesday, September 4.
We also want to make sure that students are in classes that best suit their strengths and needs. To be thoughtful about classroom placement we will not finalize class lists until the end of the week. On Monday (September 9) the children will be in their classes with their teacher for the year.
All Parents / Guardians:
SCHOOL CASH ONLINE! At Mount Pleasant we are moving to digital payments this year. There are many reasons for this:
- Increase student learning time / less teacher time spent on collecting and counting money
- Less possibility of funds going missing. More accuracy / fewer mistakes in collecting money.
- Most importantly: Student Safety! We are growing increasingly concerned with students carrying money in backpacks
- Many families already pay bills online and find it easier for home accounting
