MORNING MEETING ROOMS, LOCKERS AND SCHEDULES:
All Algonquin students should have received a letter last week informing them of their Morning Meeting Room for the upcoming school year.
All students will receive their course schedules on the first day of school.
Grade 6 students received their locker information in their letter so they are ready for our Locker Night on August 28th from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Grade 7 & 8 students will find out their locker information on the first day of school.
GRADE 6 LOCKER NIGHT:
Our Grade 6 Locker Night will take place on Wednesday, August 28. Families can visit Algonquin between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. At this event students will be able to practice their combination lock, organize their materials for the first day of school and share in an Ice Cream Social, sponsored by the Algonquin Parent Organization. Ice cream sundaes will cost $1 per person. We hope to see you at this important and fun transition activity.
