Bear Creek Park Event Friday June 8th –
Fingers crossed for NO RAIN this year!
This Friday, June 8, all T.E. Scott students will be going to Bear Creek Park for our year-end celebration. We will be playing in the water park, playing games, and having fun on the playgrounds. Students in grades 1 thru 7 will have a chance to swim and play in the pool for 30 minute time slot. Students will also be enjoying a picnic lunch, meaning bringing their lunch to the park and eating outside. All parents are welcome to join us and to help supervise students. All students will be travelling by school bus to and from the park, a few parents from each class will be asked to help supervise students on the buses and at the park. All other parents wanting to join us will need to find their own transportation there. Please look for the purple permission notice that was sent home last week.
There is no cost for this field trip. Our generous PAC is paying for this FUN event!
Thank you to our community for your support throughout the year with our fundraising!
A few things to remember:
- Make sure your child is dressed for the weather
- Bring a swimsuit
- Sunscreen and hat
- Bring a picnic type lunch
- Water bottles filled with cool water
Students will be shuttled to and from the park by bus. We will begin leaving the school at 9:00 a.m. Groups will begin departing the park by 1:00 p.m. All students should be back at TE Scott by 2:30pm.
Fingers crossed for sunshine … SUPER FUN!

School Fees 2018 – 2019
Each school year, parents support their child(ren)’s formal learning experiences in a wide variety of ways. We appreciate all that you do to ensure a successful year!
In addition to providing the school supplies itemized on a grade list, parents are periodically asked for monies to cover specific items and/or special events. No student will be denied the opportunity to participate in any school activity due to the inability to pay. Please contact the Principal should you require any financial assistance.
As we plan for the upcoming school year, we anticipate the following costs:
Student Planner: We encourage all students in Grades 1-7 to purchase a School Planner at a cost of $5.00. Included in the planner is our school code of conduct, school calendar and school district information. We find this to be an excellent tool for facilitating home/school communication, as well as for developing our students’ organizational skills. However, using our school planner is optional as a parent may purchase their own version.
Field Studies and Field Trips: Classes often enjoy educational visits to community facilities which extend and enhance the curriculum. While we use school monies or fundraise to cover the costs of such activities wherever possible, there are times when parents are asked to contribute towards the cost of the trip. If you choose to have your child not participate in a field study, a suitable program will be provided at the school.
Musical Instruments: Our Grade 7 students who take band either purchase or rent an instrument. Costs will vary depending on the instrument.
Parents have the option of purchasing their child’s school supplies on their own utilizing the grade supply list or for your convenience you may wish to purchase supplies as a package through School Start. Watch for more details coming soon…
