Registration for students entering Kindergarten in September 2020 and new students in the area that will be starting September 2020 starts on February 3 and continues until February 27. Registrations will only be taken between the hours of 10am to 11:30am and 1pm to 2:30pm. If you are unable to attend during these hours you will need to call the school office to make an appointment.
All registrations received during the month of February are treated the same. Therefore, there is no rush to register on the first day.
There is no need to re-register any student that is already registered in the school. This is for new registrations only.
Information on the registration process can be found on our website at https://cameron.burnabyschools.ca/registration/
Hello Parents and Caregivers,
A gentle reminder to everyone that children should not be dropped off at Cameron before 8:45 am. We do not have any morning supervision inside or outside the building and the warning bell to line up outside classes doesn’t ring until 8:50 am.
We often do our best to accommodate parents and students on occasion, but I have noticed that the number of students arriving at the school before 8:30 am has been increasing over the past couple months. Additionally, with the weather getting colder and wetter, it creates a real dilemma for our staff who then feel compelled to take time out of their morning preperation time to let students inside.
Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation.
Everyone knows what it feels like to try to get through the day if you haven’t had enough sleep. For students, that can mean having trouble learning because of difficulty concentrating, solving problems, or remembering. Sleep is a time for your brain to repair cells and build new pathways, which is critical for learning.
As part of our mental health strategy over the 2019-20 school year, we’ll be providing teachers with information and tools to help teach students about:
- the importance of sleep for health and learning
- how to get enough sleep
Sleep, along with nutrition, stress management, exercise, and positive social connections, are all connected to positive mental health.
