Back to School: One more week!

Trent Ernst, Editor


And just like that, summer has come to a close.

While we still have a (rather late) Labour Day to get through, next week is back to school.

Tumbler Ridge Elementary

The first day of school will be a short day, starting two hours late and ending one hour early. Kids will go to their old classrooms for the first day of school.

This is a list of suggested supplies. Individual teachers may request alternate or additional items in September.

A duo-tang per subject or several 1/4” binders (Large Binders do not fit in any desks or storage areas), or a geometry set could be required. (All Grade 4 students require duo-tangs for each subject. Please do not label the duo-tangs as teachers may want to colour code subjects.)
