Cette Semaine à Sissons - September 14th to 18th, 2020

Here is the news for Sissons school and community for the week of September 14th to 18th inclusive.

School Photos – Cancelled
In last week’s Cette Semaine, we announced that school photos would be this coming week. Unfortunately, and on the advice of ECE, the school district has announced that pictures will be cancelled for the time being. Currently, the district is working closely with the photography company to see if there are solutions. Should there be any changes, we will be sure to let you know.

Grade 1 Berry-Picking Camps
Our district’s indigenous learning department has organized this year’s Grade 1berry-picking camps once again. The camps start this week and continue in to the next. The dates for our school are:
Mme Emma – Thursday, September 17th
Mme Gabrielle – Friday, September 18th
Mme Jessica – Thursday, September 24th

First PAC Meeting – September 23rd
We will be holding out first PAC meeting of the year on Wednesday, September 23rd at 7:00 pm. This meeting will be held via Zoom in order to allow for the greatest number of parents to attend, while also ensuring we respect social distancing guidelines. The link to the Zoom meeting will be published in next week’s Cette Semaine. The meeting minutes from the June, 2020 meeting are now available as well. We hope to see you all there!

Meet the Teacher
As with many things this year, we are learning new ways to approach old routines. One of those is Meet the Teacher. Normally, this would be held during the third week of September at the school. We are currently making plans for an alternative and hope to announce our plans and some dates in next week’s Cette Semaine.

Email Contacts with Teachers
It has taken us a couple of weeks to sort out the parent email lists. Now that is done, we will be distributing those email lists to individual teachers. If you haven’t yet heard from your child’s teacher by email, you can expect hear from them soon.
