Welcome Back Social

Please join us to celebrate a new school year at the Welcome Back Social on Thursday, September 21st from 5:30 to 7 pm. It is a wonderful time to meet new parents and have a slice of pizza with your child’s new teacher. No need to go home and prepare dinner for your tired kids after the parent/teacher session. We are offering cheese and pepperoni pizza for $1 a slice! Gluten-free personal pizzas are
also available. Please purchase your pizza ASAP so we have the right number — ordering closes tonight Wednesday, September 20th (tonight!) on our hot lunch website at https://trafalgar.hotlunches.net.  Hope to you see you all there!

permission form in order to participate in practices and mini-meets. Students in Kindergarten to Grade 7 are welcome to join the team.  Parents need to complete a permission form AND email trafalgarsports@gmail.com in order to receive info.   Permissions forms are now located outside of the office.

After School Courses – Sign Up Before It’s Too Late

Spots for after school courses are also filling up.  Some spots left in SeaSmart,  Young Rembrandts, Young Entrepreneurs and Choir.  More details on our Fall 2017 After school courses page – here.

French immersion kindergarten – update

It has come to our attention that although there is a vacant classroom at Trafalgar, the VSB has not provided permission to post a position for a French immersion kindergarten teacher.   It is our view that the VSB’s stated commitment to French immersion education must be supported by action, including the speedy restoration of FI kindergarten classes to schools where practical.  Although there is only a small amount of time before classes are finalized, the PAC has contacted the superintendent to express our concerns and ask for action.
