Happy Summer!

June 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As we reach the end of the 2023-2024 school year, I would like to take a moment to extend my gratitude to a number of different people. I would like to recognize our students: Their curiosity and enthusiasm has made our school a vibrant place to learn and grow. To our exceptional teachers and staff: I extend my deepest gratitude  for your unwavering commitment to the education and well-being of our students. Your passion, creativity and connection with our students have helped to create an environment where students can feel valued and supported. To our parents/guardians and family members: your encouragement, involvement and collaboration with our staff has been crucial to supporting our students, your children, and we thank you for your ongoing support.

As we come together in September 2024 for another year at QES, you will notice some changes to the layout of our school day:

  • Doors will open to students at 8:20 AM: Students will have the opportunity to engage in physical activity in the open gym or connect with each other and supervising staff in the common area
  • The instructional day will begin at 8:40 AM (this year was 8:55 AM)
  • A longer lunch hour to allow students to engage in different activities
  • The instructional Day ends at 3:20 PM with students able to access staff and participate in activities until 3:45 PM (please note that bus students will be leaving the school at 3:24 PM)

Supply lists for next year can be found here on the school website.

Please note the school office will open for the 24-25 school year on August 27, 2024.

I hope that all members of our school community will be able to take time to relax, rejuvenate and spend quality time with family and friends this summer, and I look forward to seeing students on
September 3, 2024.

On behalf of the Queen Elizabeth School Community, I wish you a safe and joyful summer.

Mr. Chris Kirwan
