WE MADE IT! As another school year ends we wanted to thank the school staff, the parent community and St. Edward's church for their support in continuing to make St. Cyril school an enriched and fun learning environment where the students can grow in our Catholic faith. We wish you all a great summer with your kids. We also wanted to share with you a checklist of things you may wish to do to ensure you close out your child's school year successfully and have you well positioned for next school year J.
Check the School's Lost and Found. You would be surprised at what you might find in there that belongs to one of your children!
Sign up for Cash Online. The school board is moving to this system to collect monies from everything from class field trips to Spirit Wear. This system has several benefits:
We reduce our environmental impact by eliminating paper forms going home.
We avoid having our children walk around with cash or cheques that can be lost or misplaced.
The system makes life easier for parent volunteers by producing reports that we can use to place order for various things and we can easier track who has paid for what. https://www.schoolcashonline.com/. Using this system actively makes coordinating activities for your kids much easier for teachers and us parent volunteers
