2019/2020 School Year

Dear Parents,

We are in the final month of school and doing our best to end this year well!  We would like to invite you back again for next school year.  We are making plans and although much will be the same, we are planning a few changes for improvement.  If you have concerns or suggestions you believe may be of help, feel free to email me at katherton at peacechristianschool.ca or let another member of our team know.

We plan for our classroom splits and teaching staff to remain the same for K through Grade 5.  We will be saying goodbye to Mr. Assigbe (“Mr. G.”) at the end of the year and Mrs. Diminyatz will be returning from maternity leave to teach Grades 6 and 7.  Ms. Dawn Astleford (yes, she’s related to Mrs. A.) will be joining our high school teaching team, primarily for our Language Arts program.  She will be visiting us next week so if you happen to see her, please give her a warm welcome.

For high school students, a course/credit planning sheet was handed out to each student.  This has helped us plan our courses and electives for next year, as well as hopefully helped students plan for graduations and their futures.  We hope to have next year’s tentative schedule out in about a week and have students sign up for the classes they plan to take in September.  During September registration, we will make adjustments if needed, as availability allows.

Thank you for being part of our school family this year.  We hope to continue working with you and your student to learn school curriculum, as well as character traits that will take them far in life.

Regards,

Kristin Atherton

Letter of Intent and Promotional

Hello Parents,

There is still a third of the current school year remaining but we are in the midst of preparing for next year. We are planning for our teachers to remain in their current roles, as much as possible.

Mrs. Penner has let us know this is her last year of teaching full-time so we have hired a new teacher to teach our upper grade English classes. We are grateful for all of Mrs. Penner’s contributions over the last 12 years and are thankful she will still be part of our school family and have a role in our program.

Mrs. D. will be coming back from maternity leave and joining our middle school program so there will be some change there as well. The rest of our teachers plan to be back and provide another year of expertise in their areas. As always, until all the pieces are fit together, there may be other changes, but we plan and pray that God will lead us to have the right staffing for a great 2019/20 school year!

We would love to have your students back next school year and will deeply miss them in the event they go elsewhere. Because of our small student numbers, we have the opportunity to specialize programming to best meet the needs of our students. To do this, we would appreciate knowing your intentions. Please respond by email or return the attached form letter to the school. The letter explains our current discount until May 15 and our promotional “Bring One, Get One Free” is also attached.

If you choose to respond by email, please indicate if your child will be returning and if any younger siblings will be starting Kindergarten. Also, whether you would like to be invoiced so you can pay online or you wish to pay later.

Thank you for being part of our PCS family!

Regards,

Kristin Atherton
