Principal

JANUARY 2017
Dear parents, guardians and students,

Happy New Year and welcome back to school. It is so good to see the smiling, excited faces of the children arriving today. Schools can be terribly lonely places without children. We welcome everyone back for 2017.

January begins a change in the way we will be doing dismissal at Derry Village. It has become necessary to make significant changes to the way we conduct car pick-up at dismissal time at Derry Village School. Beginning Tuesday January 3, 2017. Car Pick Up dismissal will take place at the front of the school following these procedures. Here is a map of the new procedure.

We will also begin our Winter NWEA assessment for Grades 1-5. Kindergarten students will begin their first Reading Benchmark. Be ready for Progress Reports 

Yours in education,

Chris McCallum
