THINGS TO REMEMBER

 

Parents no longer need to fill out the Daily Health Checklist; however, if your child is feeling unwell please let the classroom teacher know and  keep them home.

​Outside play happens each school day, weather permitting. Please send your child with labelled seasonal gear.

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. 

 

Volunteers are now allowed back in the classroom. Please ensure that you have a recent Police Record/Vulnerable Sector Check before volunteering. 

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

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

TUITION

We are excited to introduce an online form of tuition payments through TUIO. More information will be emailed to all Preschool families 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.  Contact our Office Manager at office@thelittleschoolhouse.ca for more information. 

VOLUNTEERING

Parent Involvement:

 

There are a number of ways to get involved and be part of this amazing school.  Fundraisers, classroom participation, field trips, board of directors, and 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. Please note, all volunteers working with children must submit a current Police Record/Vulnerable Sector Check.

Bragg Creek Education Services Association (BCESA)

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 mostly 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.

 

2022 BCESA Board of Directors

President - Erica Couillard
