The Home and School meeting has been rescheduled for tomorrow – Wednesday, September 26th in the library at 7:00.
All are welcome!
Hello CQES Families,
Just wanted to take a moment and invite all of the parents to our “Meet the Family” night on Wednesday, September 12. Many of you may know who staff are at CQES, but some of the staff may not know you – so please come out and introduce yourself to your child’s teacher(s)! We know all of the children, but sometimes we don’t know who the adults are in their lives! We encourage you to make this an evening just for the adults as there tends to be a lot of adults talking, in adult language, and it is not fun for the children. Also, we are unable to provide supervision. We will meet in the gym at 6:00 where introductions, communication practices, school goals, school handbook and additional supports are all explained. Then, there will be two sessions, about 15 minutes each, where you are invited to go to your child’s class and introduce yourself to your child’s teacher. During this time, your child’s teacher will explain the curriculum, their classroom expectations and their communication practices. Looking forward to meeting and seeing you all on Wednesday!
Thursday, September 6th is the first day of school for students.
At CQES the new kindergarten students will go directly to their classrooms.
The grades 1-3 will meet in the music room.
The grades 4-6 will meet in the gym.
Please remember that the school bus may be 10-15 minutes late or early to pick up your children, especially on the first day. We ask for your understanding and patience at this time. 🙂
Congratulations to Jeremy Nicholson who will be one of Central Queens’ bus drivers this year. He is taking over the route driven by Alan MacIsaac last year (bus #13). This year bus#13 is being replaced by a new bus #58.
John Larsen‘s old bus 163 will be replaced by a new bus #59 this year.
