Dear parents and Guardians,
The parking lot of Dover Street is now closed. Please do not drop off your children at Dover Street. If you are driving to school please use Arrow Street or Sanders Street as the drop-off / pick-up areas. We have noticed parents are dropping children off at Dover Street in the middle of the construction zone. This is not safe! We care very much about the safety of our students and we know you do too.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Mrs. Shelley park
Important Message: Burnaby Schools Summer Session 2016
Thank you for your interest in Burnaby Schools for your child’s summer learning experience. We will be resuming registration this Thursday, May 5, with a staggered schedule dependent on the grade your child will be entering in September 2016. Courses for other grades will not be available until the scheduled date (next week)
Please see the front page of the District website for the dates scheduled to register your child.
With great thanks to some hard working Marlborough parents from our PAC and some parent volunteers, we are happy to announce that the Scholastic book Fair will be running next week. Classes will be visiting the book fair from Monday to Thursday. Students will have the opportunity to purchase books both at lunch and after school from Monday to Wednesday and at lunch on Thursday. This is a great opportunity to encourage your children to read, to get books for our library and to help the school raise funds. Happy Reading!
Construction will begin on Dover Street and east toward Royal Oak Avenue next week and will continue until mid-August. We are excited about the prospect of a bike lane along Dover and better lighting for our pedestrian crossing on the north side of our school at Dover. The vehicle lanes and the pedestrian crossing at Royal Oak and Dover will be improved as well. Please note the posted signs and pay close attention and listen to the flag persons as they are there for our safety.
The sidewalk on the south side of Dover will be closed during most of the construction. The parking lots along Dover may be closed at times during this time period as well.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Mrs. Shelley Parks
We need your help. We will probably have close to 80 students involved in our Track program this year. These students are in Grades 4 – 7. We need drivers to take the students to and from the track at Swangard Stadium. We also need parents willing to help out at the track. Thank you to coaches, Ms. Cheng and Ms. Ford (Grade 4/5 athletes), Ms. Teichroeb and Ms. Clutton (Gr. 6/7) and to Ms. Gee, she coaches both the Gr. 4/5 and Gr. 6/7 athletes. If you can help out with driving or at the track while our athletes are competing, please leave a message for Ms. Gee or drop off a note at the office. If you can drive, please be sure to fill in a Driver’s form. You or your child can pick one up from the office. This form must be filled in before you can transport students to and from an event. Thank you in advance for your support. Much appreciated!
