Thank you for your flexibility as we moved our parent/teacher interviews virtually this year.  While there were some technical errors, generally we have had great feedback and for the most part, school and home were able to connect.  If you were not able to connect and are wanting an opportunity to meet with your child's teacher, please reach out to the school.

For next week, 

Scholastic Book Fair is Here!
Our school’s Book Fair is going ONLINE, so save the date! 

From November 23-December 6, take the opportunity to refresh your home libraries, grab some meaningful gifts, or find your next read! Discover the newest books hot off the press, from the comfort of your home. 

Bonus: Every purchase supports our school and keeps kids reading!

December 2nd is a spirit day, "Dress As Your Favourite Literary Character"  Prizes to the classes with the most participation, keep it simple!  Students must still be able to wear their cloth masks and we ask for no additional props.

Have a wonderful weekend, Falcons!

Parents/Guardians,

On the evening of November 26th, and morning of November 27th, we have our Parent/Teacher Interviews.  With our COVID protocols, these will look different this year.  All interviews will be virtual or on the phone.

I highly encourage all families to book an interview.  This is an excellent way to connect with your child’s teachers as well as continue to build a strong team between school and home.

To book your interview time, please click on the link below:

https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/EastRidgeCommunitySchool@bwdsb7.onmicrosoft.com/bookings/

Once on the site – 

  1. Select one of the two types of interviews – JK-Grade 3 or Grade 4-8. This narrows the list down to staff for those grades.  
  1. Select your child’s teacher. If you are wanting to meet with multiple staff, you can go through these steps and book other meetings with additional staff.
  1. Select the date and times available.
  1. Scroll down and enter your name and email. Then add your child’s name. 
  1. Hit the book button

You will receive an email confirming your date and time, as well as the link to the TEAMS virtual meeting. At the time of the interview, please click this link to automatically join in the virtual meeting with the teacher.  You can join this meeting from any browser, on a smartphone or computer.

If you have any difficulty booking your appointment, please try a different browser (ie chrome, firefoxetc). If you continue to have trouble, please call the school.

Thank you for your continued flexibility,
Sara Morrow, principal

Some updates from  East Ridge!

Tomorrow we will continue to observe Remembrance Day through a virtual assembly.  Many classes have participated in adding to our assembly through readings and artwork.  We will continue to acknowledge this important day in Canadian History.

Our next SCC meeting is on November 18 at 6:30.  If you would like to attend, please send an email to sara_morrow@bwdsb.on.ca. These meetings are still organized through a virtual TEAMS meeting.  Those who attended the last SCC meeting do not need to ask for an invitation to the meeting, you will be automatically sent an invitation.

Progress Reports will be sent home with students on November 20th.  

Parent/Teacher Interviews will be held the evening of November 26th and the morning of November 27th.  These meetings must occur virtually at this time.  We will share how to book an interview time with you soon.  We encourage every parent to touch base with your child's teacher at this time.

Thank you for your continued support

Hello Families,

On November 5th and 6th we will be having a school wide cross-country race here at East Ridge while still adhering to our new health and safety protocols. The race course will be well marked around our school property and the students will complete a certain distance depending on their grade.  Students will race with their class only and we will record their times. Participation ribbons will be awarded, and we will also acknowledge the top 3 times in each grade. Please send clothes and running shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy and a change of clothes.     

Thank you,

East Ridge Community School
