 Tannock brothers meet Flora Duffy

Picture

The Tannock brothers, Mathias (P2) and Josiah (P6),
 were given an awesome opportunity to meet Flora Duffy!
 The boys were chosen by their running coach, Steve Burgess,
 to participate in the meet and greet event on Monday, April 29th.
As Flora is a former student of Port Royal Primary, this was an
 exciting chance for Matthias and Josiah to interact with a Bermudian
 world class athlete.

 Port Royal School's Community Service

 

PicturePicture

In the spirit of giving - Port Royal Primary school decided to give one of their neighboring schools a helping hand.

Just before the start of the school year, the Bright Start Programme at Warwick Preschool, experienced a fire which, resulted in the classroom suffering extensive damage. This term, for their community service, Port Royal Primary School decided a grub day in aid of the Warwick Preschool classroom rebuild would be ideal. The student body raised a total of $505.00 which was presented to the Bright Start class, teachers and the school’s Principal Mrs. DeRosa-Holder during their assembly.

 IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

 
IMPORTANT NOTICE
DROP OFF/PICK UP
PROCEDURES 
We are still seeing parents and others driving in the parking area when dropping off and collecting students in the morning and afternoon. If you are having someone else collect/pick-up your child please inform them that they are not to drive into or back up in the parking area.   This is very unsafe and dangerous for our students and staff.
DROP OFF/ PICK UP PROCEDURES:
·        Parents should drive into the gate and pull forward into one of the spots to drop off and pick up students.
·        Students should walk along the median, across the crossing and along the side of the building to get to the line-up area.
·        Parents please do not pull into the parking lot area, or spots, as staff need to park for the beginning of their work day. (We do place cones across the entry area to remind you not to drive into the main lot) Additionally, the students need to walk to their transportation in the afternoon. Please do not drive into the lot in the afternoon.
·        Do not allow children to run across the parking lot as we want to ensure their safety and avoid someone being hit by a reversing car.
·        We know that rainy days can be a challenge, but we do request that everyone is mindful of these procedures.
 
We would appreciate your support concerning these procedures.

With thoughts anew

If we use our manners
As we should.
 
We are students
Wanting to Learn
So we put our hands up
And wait our turn

We’re glad we tried with all our might
We set our goals
And reach for the sky
That’s why our school standard
Is very high.

· All students should now be in summer uniform.
· The school tie should be worn with all uniforms.
· For those students wearing earrings only gold or silver studs are allowed. 
· White sports socks should be worn with the P.E. kit.  The Spirit shirt is not the P.E. uniform.
 
DROP OFF/ PICK UP PROCEDURES:
· Parents should drive into the gate and pull forward into one of the spots to drop off and pick up students. 
· Students should walk along the median, across the crossing and along the side of the    building to get to the line up area. 
· Parents please do not pull into the parking lot area, or spots, as staff need to park for the beginning of their work day. (We do place cones across the entry area to remind you not to drive into the main lot)  Additionally, the students need to walk to their transportation in the afternoon.  Please do not drive into the lot in the afternoon.
· Do not allow children to run across the parking lot as we want to ensure their safety and avoid someone being hit by a reversing car.
· We know that rainy days can be a challenge, but we do request that everyone is mindful of these procedures.
 
Leaving/Entering the School Premises
 
·         Students are not allowed to leave the school during the school day, unless a request from a parent/guardian has been received.  Students will carry a permission slip when leaving the school for any reason during the day.  Upon the student’s return, the office should be informed and the permission slip submitted for record-keeping purposes.
·         Parents/Guardians/Visitors – when entering the school during the school day please make your first stop the school office where you will be asked to sign-in for the security and safety of our students.
 
 
CLOTHING/BELONGINGS:
· Please ensure that ALL of your child’s belongings are clearly labeled with their name.  This includes—school  shirts, pants, sweaters, P.E.’s, lunch bags, etc.  Many items look alike and we want students to be able to identify their items. 
· We have had some rainy days and I’ve noticed that some students do not have their rain gear.  Please ensure that your child’s rain gear is packed in their bag each day.
 
HOMEWORK:
· Your child will normally have homework every Monday—Thursday night.  Please ensure that your child completes their homework each night, you sign their homework each night, you review their spelling words daily and that they read to you (and you read aloud to them) each night.
 
GRUB DAYS
· On out of uniform days, please ensure that your child is appropriately dressed.  For girls wearing ‘leggings’ this means that they should wear a shirt or dress that at least reaches the hip level.  Boys need to ensure that pants are at their waist and that they are wearing a belt on uniform and out of uniform days.
 
CELL PHONES
· Please be reminded of the cell phone policy that was forwarded to you on October 11, 2011.  Any cell phones used during the school day will be confiscated.  I would also encourage parents to check their child’s text messages, blackberry messenger and emails to monitor the content.
 
OTHER:
· All students should have a quiet activity for the mornings.  This can include a book to read, drawing pad, puzzles, flash cards, coloring etc.  Please be advised that toys are not allowed and any kind of trading cards are not allowed.
 
· Please let the office know of any change of address, etc.
 
Thank you for your attention to these matters.
 
                          Kind Regards
 
                         Joann P. Dill
                         Principal
