Parent Information night will be Wednesday, September 18th at 6pm. Great opportunity to meet your child/children’s teacher(s).
Congratulations! Our school, Somerset Consolidated, has been selected to participate in the 2019 Indigo Adopt a School Program (the “AAS Program”) – a partnership between the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation (“Love of Reading”) and Indigo Books & Music Inc. (“Indigo”)
Between September 14, 2019 and October 6, 2019, the AAS Program will have two fundraising components for our school to participate in:
Every dollar raised in store at Coles County Fair Mall through the AASProgram will be provided to your school by November 2019 in the form of an Indigo e-giftcard to be used for the purchase of books for Somerset Consolidated School.
We will receive 30% discount off the list price of books purchased at Indigo, Chapters, Coles and Indigo.ca when the school uses funds raised in-store through the AAS Program
Another reminder will be sent out in the fall. Have a great summer
The Grade 8 Closing Ceremony will be this evening, June 25th @ 6:30 p.m. Reception in the lobby to follow for Graduates and their families. Dance will begin at 8 p.m. at Somerset. Pick up will be 10 p.m.
We would like to congratulate the following teachers who will be transferring to other schools in September. Nikki Waite will be going to Sherwood Elementary School; Kara Sabean will be teaching at Queen Elizabeth Elementary School and Melanie Gallant will be at Parkside Elementary. All these excellent teachers will be missed. Also Maribeth Noonan will be on a 1/2 year leave starting in September. All these positions will be filled during the summer.
Tuesday, June 18th the Consolidated Credit Union will come to Somerset to BBQ for the staff and students. We will each get a hot dog and juice at noon tomorrow. Thanks to all the staff from the Consolidated Credit Union bank who come to do this every year.
This Friday, June 14th there will be no classes for the PRESENT KINDERGARTEN students. The Kindergarten children who will be starting at Somerset in the fall will be coming to the school for an orientation.
Reminder that all Somerset Library books are to be returned on Monday, June 10th. If you see a Somerset Library book this weekend around the house that should be returned, please send it in with your child/children on Monday.
The School Food partnership had initially intended to begin pilots this year in three school hubs including Montague, Kinkora and East Wiltshire. More time is needed to put the funding, structure and systems in place, for example: · Policy direction is needed on the model · Funding approval must come through the annual budget process · A nonprofit entity must be established, staffed and funded · The necessary systems and infrastructure must be put in place to support the model. Depending on the timing of when this work can be done, there may be an opportunity to begin in some schools this year.
