Parents’ Corner - FREE Math tutor

Have you ever wished for a FREE Math tutor for your child? Help is here!

From Kindergarten math to calculus, send your child on “Math Missions” developed by math educators at Khan Academy wwww.khanacademy.org

“Missions are personalized math experiences in which students can learn at their own pace, master skills that are challenging and appropriate for their level, and use hints and videos to learn and review.” Signing your child up for a free personalized account is a motivating option that tracks progress and mastery points.

Learning math has never been easier or more fun!

Parents’ Corner

Exam time is just around the corner. Does your child know that the brain does not have only a certain set of fixed abilities? It’s “elastic” and capable of much more than he or she thinks! Interestingly, studies show that people’s test performances are influenced by their beliefs about their abilities.

To help your child learn these empowering, you can show a video of the book Your Fantastic Elastic Brain: Stretch It, Shape It by JoAnn Deak, Ph.D. You can find it either by typing the title in the YouTube search bar or by visiting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4G8N9CEYiM.

Little Mermaid Invitation & Ticket Order

We are excited to begin selling tickets for this year’s production of ‘The Little Mermaid’. Once again we are pleased to offer a fantastic Dinner Theatre experience on April 9th and 11th. To purchase tickets this year, you will have to come to one of our Box Office times. This is to improve speed and priority of ticket purchases, and to avoid students transporting large sums of money, which then exchanges many hands.

Successful Book Fair

We had a very successful Book Fair this year! I would like to thank ALL volunteers who donated their precious time organizing and managing the fair. Your participation is always appreciated. I would also like to thank the Bancroft parents and students for supporting our school. This year we had $6785.15 in total sales resulting in a credit of $3685.40 for our school to purchase books! That means every teacher will receive funds to spend on books for their classroom libraries! 

A special warm THANK YOU goes out to our neighborhood TIM HORTON’S for donating their delicious freshly brewed coffee in support of our Grade 6 Bake Sales.

Scholastic Book Fair

Our Scholastic Book Fair will take place Monday to Thursday, November 19th to 22nd. Book prices range from $2.50 to $30.00.

If your child is NOT allowed to purchase small items with his/her change once he/she has purchased books, clearly indicate this on his/her agenda.

Grade 6 will be hosting a Bake Sale on Wednesday during the school day and during the evening.  They will also be featuring products made from our Fundraiser ‘Recettes en Pots’ so you will be able to ‘try before you buy’.

Find out when your child's class is visiting and when you can visit too!
