Session #1 – Friday, September 16th
Burnaby Parks & Recreation:
Join us along with Parks & Recreation Program Coordinator, Kelly Ebbers, in Room 13 for this informative session.
It is a short season and it is expected that all students will attend these practices. We begin competing Monday, September 19th. All students should report to the outside gym doors on the practice mornings at 8:15 a.m. in appropriate running clothes and are expected to bring a note if they are away.
If your child would like to participate, please complete the permission form. These forms can be found on the bulletin board outside Ms. Koh and Hickson’s rooms. (Rooms 6 and 7).
To help make families lives simpler, Armstrong buys bulk supplies for students. This means that students can access unlimited classroom supplies throughout the year for a one-time fee. As the school buys in bulk from a local supplier, we get special pricing and access to specific supplies. You will be asked to pay for these supplies in September through the online payment plan.
Grade One $30/student
Grade Two $30/student
Grade Three $40/student
Grades 4 & 5 $40/student
Grades 6 7 $30/student
If you choose not to participate in the program, you will need to purchase your child’s own supplies. Please make certain that all the supplies are purchased as they are described (colour, weight, brand, etc.)
