What’s Happening


Information for Primary Students:

Your teachers this summer are Sarah Craine (me), Ms. Prabha (my right hand woman), and Ms. Kayla (new).  We also have Ms. Chelsea and Ms. Olivia in extended care.  Please make your presence known if you have not met any of us.  We are the ones that are going to fall in love with your child and help you in any way we can.


You are basically going to pack a beach bag that your child will bring to school everyday.  The items in the bag a quick go-to for us as teachers to aid your child and for you to know what to buy more of.  These are somewhat suggestions.  It makes our life easier in helping your child feel better if they are in need but note: if your child does not have a water bottle, they will get water, if they do not have a towel we will dry them, if they do not bug spray, they will be sprayed.  If your family is specific about what you want your child to have, YOU MUST PACK IT ON YOUR OWN!

Your beach bag must contain:

-water bottle

– zip lock bag with sunscreen and bug spray

-zip lock bag with band aids, ointment, hairbrush, toothbrush, washcloth

– extra clothes (if child is still in toilet training process extra underwear and bottoms)

-towel and bathing suit

-water shoes/crocs/boots or just shoes that can get muddy and wet

– lunch
