t's never too early to be thinking about the start of school, and if your child will be four years old by the end of 2023, online registration is now open for Kindergarten in Grand Erie.
"By opening the window for Kindergarten registration earlier, we will be in a better place to plan and implement programming and resources to help children and families make a successful transition as they start school," said JoAnna Roberto, Director of Education. "Kindergarten in Grand Erie is an exciting time of purposeful play and exploration where the youngest learners build their problem-solving skills, form positive relationships, and develop a strong sense of who they are in the world."
Parents and caregivers of soon-to-be Kindergarten students can visit Grand Erie’s website and click on the Kindergarten Registration banner for more information about the process. This includes finding their child’s home school, which documents are required for registration, information about transportation, community resources, and before- and after-care programs.
Families interested in Grand Erie’s French Immersion program have until Friday, February 3, 2023 to express their interest in the program and spots will be assigned through a randomized selection process. New students who currently have a sibling in the program are guaranteed a spot; however, registration is still required.
Grand Erie District School Board represents more than 26,000 students in 58 elementary schools and 14 secondary schools within the City of Brantford and the counties of Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk, as well as secondary students from Six Nations of the Grand River and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. With a dedicated staff of more than 2,500, Grand Erie is committed to learning, leading and inspiring.
On May the 20th our DD Class participated in Grand Erie’s first Special Education Games. The students got to take part in a variety of fun activities. Each activity had predetermined standards and the students were awarded ribbons for each event they took part in. Our students earned a variety of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and participant ribbons.
Our class took home 1st place in the “Create your Mascot Contest”, earning us a class pizza party! Class participants included; Kayden, Lilly, Jonathan, Spencer, Karlan, Jacob, Justyse, Hayley, Alyssa, and Stantone. We all really enjoyed the day.
