What's Coming Up:
-AGM, November 30, 2021
Everyone is welcome to attend. Join us for this Zoom meeting starting at 7:00pm with our Executive Board Members and BCESA Staff.
We are excited to introduce an online form of tuition payments through TUIO. More information will be emailed to all families later this week on how to set up an account to facilitate monthly payments through automatic withdrawal. Our hope is that this will eliminate the need for post-dated cheques moving forward. Once those accounts are established, the cheques that we have received will be returned or shredded.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
Indoor Shoes: They should be labeled, easy to put on for transitions, and they will stay at school for the year.
Backpack: All children should come to school each day with a backpack large enough to fit a library book, lunch box and water bottle.
Snack: Each day, preschool students are expected to bring a healthy, nut-free snack, as well as a spill-proof water bottle that they can sip through the day.
***PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANYTHING WITH NUTS OR NUT PRODUCTS***
Labeling: All coats, backpacks, footwear and lunch kits should be labeled as we don't always know what belongs to who.
Doors: The school door will be locked until the classes start time while we are preparing materials and activities for the day. The doors will also remain locked during class.
At this time, parents will not be permitted to enter the classroom space. If that guideline should change later in the school year, we will welcome volunteers in the classroom. The success of our program relies on parental involvement and I thank you in advance for your support.
Please send in the following school supplies with your child during the first week of school:
2 glue sticks
1 package of thin washable markers
1 box of coloured pencil crayons
2 boxes of tissues
3 tubs of Playdough
1 box of crayons
1 roll of white paper towel
There are a number of ways to get involved and be part of this amazing school. Fundraisers, classroom participation, field trips, board of directors, special event organizers are just a few ways to be part of your child's school. You will also get to know the teachers and meet other parents along the way. Because the Little Schoolhouse is privately funded, we rely upon the support of each family to help make this school run at its best.

Board of Directors:
As mentioned above, the parent led board consisting of a President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary work together with the Teacher and make up the Board of Directors. This school board operates under the incorporated title of Bragg Creek Education Services Association (BCESA). The board is a volunteer position that is filled by parents currently enrolled at The Little Schoolhouse. It is a one year commitment of about 5 – 10 hours per month, including one board meeting per month. Elections take place at the General Meeting. This is just one of the many ways parents get involved not only in the school but in the community as a whole.
