A HUGE thank you to Michelle Sutherland and all her helpers for cooking and serving our 39 kilograms of potatoes.
It's Harvest Time at Roch Carrier!
In the late spring, Ms. Carew's and Mme. Bercy's classes planted potatoes under the guidance of Michelle Sutherland and her father. This week, again with help from our two favourite gardeners, the grade 6's dug up the potatoes. Students have now been challenged to estimate amount and weight.
On Monday, September 28th, the grade 6's will be weighing, scrubbing, cutting, boiling, roasting, and finally serving potatoes to the school and daycare. Michelle will be there to supervise, but we need parent volunteers to help make all aspects run smoothly. We are hoping you can help from 9:00 - 2:00, or even if you have a few hours in the timeframe, we would love to see you.
Ms. Carew, Mme. Laviolette, Mrs. Gasperetti, Mrs. Mosier, and all the grade 6's.

Happy New Year! Welcome to our new and returning families to another school year at Roch Carrier ES. We wish you all a happy and successful entry in September.
With the hard work of our custodial staff, our school looks shiny and new. We thank you for all your hard work! In the front office, our office ladies, Leanne and Brenda, are happy to assist our new families. Our teachers have dedicated many hours into preparing for the new school year. Our School Council has again supported all our efforts to make this school year an exceptional one for each of our students. Thank you one and all!
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Morning arrival on September 8th:
If your child is taking the bus: Please arrive at the stop at least 15 minutes ahead of time. For younger students, please place a label on your child's backpack that states their name/grade/contact number. The bus will be met at school by a staff member who will bring the students to their homeroom teacher.
If you are bringing your child directly to school:
ALL GRADE 1 STUDENTS: Please bring your grade 1 children to the gym where class lists will be posted and homeroom teachers will be waiting to greet your children. We ask that parents say their goodbyes in the gym.
ALL GRADE 2-6 STUDENTS: Please bring your children to the back yard of the school. Class lists will be posted by grade around the yard along the walls of the school and the fence. Students are to gather in their grade area where they will be placed into their class groups by teachers and will enter the school at the bell.
If you are coming with your child on the first day, please remember that parking is very limited. We anticipate lots of vehicular traffic.
We request that parents say their goodbyes in the yard or in the gym.
Homeroom placement: Please note that for a variety of reasons, classes and teachers can sometimes change before the end of September. You will be notified if there are any changes.
Lost and Found: Please label EVERYTHING that you send to school with your child. Our lost and found fills up very quickly with unlabeled items.
EMPTY SEAT REQUESTS FOR BUSING: If you are requesting empty seat busing consideration for your child, please pick up an application form at the office. Please note that at this point only one bus has been allocated to our school. As a result, our empty seat allocation will be extremely limited or non-existent.
