Principal Update September 5 – September 8 – Connect Charter School

Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

September 5 - September 8

This Week's Highlights

Our grade 9 students enjoying their first week back at school.
Welcome back Connect Charter School students and families, and welcome to our new families!
I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and is excited to return to school. Our staff are well prepared for the school year and we are all looking forward to being together at school. 
A big THANK YOU to our School Council and Parent Society for working together and providing such a wonderful meal and event last night. Our school would not be the same without the support of these groups and of our wider parent community.
Secondly, a big THANK YOU to the Earl Grey Golf Club who generously donated a John Deere Gator (pictured below) to our school. This machine will be used to support our student excursions at the Field Experience Center, beginning Wednesday September 6th!
