Wee Read Volunteers Wanted
Brentwood School would like to thank all our wee read volunteers that read with our kindergarten and grade one students. Thank you for bringing the joy of reading to our young students! Our students always looked forward to your visits every week and you truly made a difference in strengthening their foundations for reading and overall school success.
We are hoping to start our next round of wee read soon!
Be a wee read volunteer!
We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that sup
port literacy skills. This eight-week program was designed by Alberta Reads (www.albertareadsnetwork.com) to help Kindergarten and Grade One children strengthen the foundations for reading and school success, and help children develop a love for books.
If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be, there will be a volunteer training session on Monday, April 15th at Westboro School (6:30-7:30). If you have already completed the training, you do not have to attend the session again. Please email Tracy Russell (email@example.com) if you would like to volunteer.
When Can My Child Start Kindergarten?
To register for kindergarten in the 2019-20 school year, your child must be five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2019.
*Birth Certificate or Passport required
Starting school is an exciting time, for both children and parents. Although exciting, it can also be daunting if you don’t have the information you need. To help, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has put together an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible for Brentwood Elementary families.
LOGOS Kindergarten will follow Schedule B calendar.
BRENTWOOD ELEMENTARY INFORMATION NIGHT

Guide to Reporting Student Achievement 2018-19

Dress for the Weather
Students are expected to bring jackets and appropriate clothing to stay warm and dry during these upcoming cold winter months.
Please ensure that your student is equipped with proper winter wear (warm footwear, jacket, mitts, hats, raincoats)
Thank you, and stay warm!
With the winter season already here, we want to remind parents to dress children appropriately for the weather when getting ready for school or the bus. The weather often changes unexpectedly throughout the day, so please select suitable outerwear and ensure your child is prepared for changing conditions.
If inclement weather conditions occur, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) advises parents of any bus cancellations using various communications tools—automated-telephone messages, alerts posted on www.eips.ca and school websites, Twitter, Facebook, local radio stations and on Versatrans My Stop. Any morning bus cancellations are posted on www.eips.ca by 6:30 a.m.
Decisions regarding bus cancellations are guided by EIPS administrative procedures that states, “school bus service may be suspended…when Environment Canada reports a temperature of -40 C.” Other reasons for suspending or delaying school bus services include adverse weather and poor road condition.
When school bus services are suspended, schools remain open to students. EIPS believes parents have the right and responsibility to make choices for their children based on their beliefs and perceptions of safety during times of inclement weather.
Please print/complete submit forms to office if needed:
No Child Without: Free MedicAlert for students
In our ongoing effort to provide safe and caring schools for our students, Brentwood Elementary is once again participating in the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation’s No Child Without program. The program is a national initiative that provides no-cost MedicAlert services to children—between the ages four and 14—who have chronic health conditions. The goal is twofold: to help children with severe allergies, medical conditions or special needs and to assist schools with medical-emergency plans for students.
Once a child is registered, their school is provided with advice on a medical-emergency plan for that student and given a list of medications, allergies and medical conditions the student has. If your child has a serious medical condition or allergy and could benefit from MedicAlert services, contact the school office at 780-467-5591 To learn more about the No Child Without program, visit www.nochildwithout.ca.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
