We have started a new initiative at Courtenay Elementary. We would appreciate all families following the guidelines sent home in the report card envelops.
We are implementing a school wide 'school supplies' program and are asking parents to contribute 25$ for each K or grade 1 student and 30$ for each grade 2, 3, 4,and 5 student. We can be very efficient with our buying and in the long run everyone will save. Thanks so much for your support on this school wide initiative.
All of next year's Grade 1 to Grade 5 students will return to their classes from this year for a half day on Sept. 3rd. We will all meet in the gym at 8:43 am.

At Courtenay Elementary we believe that our role is to provide students and families with a caring community where students can learn and be successful. The image here shows what is central to every decision and action we take at school.
At Courtenay Elementary we use a program called the ZONES of Regulation to teach all students how to manage their emotions and strategies for putting their bodies and brains into the optimal ZONE for learning. At home parents can support this program by using the strategies here.
