Late arrivals

| thank you | Dear families


Arriving late to school affects the individual students’ ability to be academically successful and an individual’s late arrival disrupts the learning of the entire class.


As you know we implemented a Late Policy in November of 2013. Over all there has been a significant decline in the number of students arriving late due to unexcused lates.


We would like to thank parents who have supported their children in arriving to school on time and students who have made a consistent, concerted effort to be on time for classes. It is vital that we continue to work together to ensure continued punctuality and attendance. read more (pdf)


inform | trips within walking distance

The CBE values the educational benefit of off-site activities and we want to ensure students have opportunities to go out into the community around their school with their teachers to complement their classroom learning. To allow this to happen more easily, we have simplified our process for trips that are within walking distance of the school.  This change does not include restricted activities such as swimming.

As parents, you will no longer need to fill out a consent form for your child to go on a class trip that is walking distance from the school, e.g. to a local park. Instead, your school will send a letter outlining local sites and what potential risks may be at the start of each school year. 

Teachers will be expected to let you know when they plan to include a trip to a local site. We believe that this change will allow teachers to more easily take advantage of places close to the school such as parks or libraries.

If you have any concerns please speak with your child’s teacher.


Opens 4 days a week starting Jan. 13, 2014

Principal's Message | December 2013

In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.”
Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D

We are responsible for continually assessing and communicating student growth in ways that best support student learning. Learning and assessment are understood to be part of the same process where:

  • Teachers plan for and engage in a continuous cycle of instruction, assessment and adjustment
  • Student agency is engaged towards self - understanding and active pursuit of learning.
