Highview Junior Electives

The Highview Staff is pleased to offer students in Grades 4 – 6 an Elective program again this year. This year’s program will take place on Tuesday, February 7thth and Tuesday, February 28th 2012. (This conflicts with pizza lunch, so students are reminded to NOT order Pizza on these days).  Families are asked to select carefully as participants may attend the same elective or choose a different elective for each day. These activities will complement and extend our in-class programme. All electives will start and end within the school day.

Each activity has a maximum number of spaces. Student requests will be processed on a first come, first served basis. If a program is undersubscribed, it may be cancelled and students will be given their second or third choice.

The cost of each elective includes transportation. Please do not send any money with your registration form. Once registrations have been processed, a “Confirmation of Elective Selection” form will be sent home with instructions for payment and further information for each elective. Final elective costs will depend on the number of students who select each activity. Registration forms are to be returned by December 22, 2011. Confirmation notes will be available the week of January 9th, 2012 with full payment required by Wednesday, January 18th, 2012.

In order to speed up the selection and organization of electives, we have set up an online Elective Sign Up site that can be accessed from the Highview PS website (http://www.highview.ps.yrdsb.edu.on.ca) or from your child’s teacher’s website or blog.  Please complete the paper sign up belowonly  if you are unable to access the online sign up form.

We will require some parent volunteers to join in the fun and help with supervision. If you have an up-to-date York Regional Police Vulnerable Sector Screening on file with our school office, and wish to help out, please indicate this on the registration form.

Thank you from the Junior Division Teachers.
