We are excited for new classes today!

Dear Parents,


The first week of school is coming to a close and we are now ready to move into our new classes. Thank you for your patience and support of our first few days of start up. The students have spent time over the past few days getting to know each other, the staff and also reviewing school wide expected behaviour. 


At 3:00 today, please pick up your child(ren) in the following areas:

-French Immersion Primary: Outside Music Portable 

-English Primary: Outside Frame Building 

-English and French Intermediate: pick up in your usual location 


Staff have taken great care to think and discuss the placement of children into classes. Various factors are taken into consideration including learning needs, social dynamics, gender (when possible and relevant). Staff have looked to build on opportunities for students to develop independence and also create new friendships. After this week of observing students and their developmental changes over the summer, we are confident that the children are in the best possible placements to support their learning.  Once students are in their classes they will not be moved. 


I will be communicating more information in a newsletter. Please also keep your eyes open for our office package that will be coming home next week.  Also, important information will be posted on our Selkirk Website at

The Selkirk PAC would like to invite you to a Welcome Back Tea on Thursday September 13that 9:15 am (after drop off) in the library. 


We look forward to a productive engaging and positive year together. 


Warm Regards, 

Ms. Burton 

Principal ​
