Dear McKelvie Families ~
I hope that this email finds you well and enjoying your summer vacation.  We have been hard at work getting ready for the new school year.  With August here, I know that school preparation is making its way into your planning, so I thought that I would send out some reminders.  Below are some quick hits for you:
- InfoSnap will be sent to you via email on 8/3 mid-day.  Once you complete this process, you can log into your PowerSchool Account and see your child's teacher(s).
- We will post class lists on August 8th so that your child can get a sense of who will be in their pod.  The lists will be posted in the Gym Hallway on the County Road side of the building.  For privacy purposes, we do not post these on the school web site.
- If you already ordered PTG School Supply Packs, they will be delivered to your child's classroom for the 1st day.  If not, please see our school web site for school supply lists.
- 6th grade students do have a Summer Math Packet.  While it is voluntary, we highly recommend that your child practice these skills prior to the start of school.
- We have had a number of new hires this year.  It is likely that you will see some new names and teachers as you browse our web site.
- The first day of school for students is Thursday, August 25th.  School hours are8:50 to 3:15.  More information to follow.
- A copy of our Student Handbook can be found on the school web site under School Info.
- McKelvie does not have a Meet & Greet like the elemntary schools do.  You will notice that with each transition in Bedford, there are changes in expectation and process.  Not to worry, all of our teachers greet their students on the playground.  They give tours and get to know your child.  I promise, we will take care of each and every one!
Until my next email, I wish you an fun-filled, safe summer!
Michael Fournier, Principal
