Pipestone School Kindergarten Registration
We are into the final stretch of learning for the 2017-18 school year. Most important to us is continuing to provide a very high level of safe, caring welcoming atmosphere at our school - the Pipestone way! Along with that is our focus on helping students achieve their best for the outcomes in our program of studies. One of several important measures of achievement takes place when our grade six students write the provincial achievement exams in Math, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science. The grade five students in our combined 5-6 class will be writing the Social and Science exams as they have taken the curriculum in those subject areas this year (they will not write the Social and Science exams next year as they will cover the Grade five Social and Science curricula in the 2017-18 school year).
Highlights of so much to look forward to:
- Easter events
- field trips
- in school musical performances
- spring class photos
- theme/school spirit days
- the annual track meet (scheduled for Friday, May 26 here at Pipestone). We'll be looking for volunteers to support the events and the concession
For more information on these or any other school happenings watch for the monthly school calendar, look for school wide emails/phone calls, check your child's agenda book each day, or call the school.
It's a great time for "Learning To Succeed!"
