Champs Vallée Voyageurs News – September 12, 2017
FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL
It was great to welcome all of the students and families to our new school. The start of school went quite really well with teachers and students making the most out of our temporary accommodations at Bellevue. The students and teachers were very excited to be in their new classrooms. Our Champs Vallée office can be found across from Bellevue’s office.

You will be notified by email when news and information from our school is available. We will aim to post weekly or bi-monthly updates. Our school will also communicate messages through PowerSchool.
In the event of an emergency or if information is needed to be sent urgently, our school and division have the ability to send notifications by phone, text, and email. Please complete the Online Verification when it is sent by Black Gold Schools to ensure that your information is accurate.
New this year, all of our field trips, fee payments, and student progress will be able to be accessed through PowerSchool. Please contact the office, if you help accessing to your PowerSchool account.
Our school’s website is https://ecvs.blackgold.ca, which contains much of the up to date information and links to our blog and calendars. Here you will find the Black Gold calendar, ECS calendar and the school google calendar.
On this site, you can also access our school calendar. This calendar has all of our school’s important dates, like school photos, field trips, etc.
If you have a google account, you can add our calendar to your calendar. You can also subscribe to our blog page.
Click on this link: https://ecvsnews.blogspot.ca/p/school-calendar.html or click on the tab near the top of our blog that says CALENDAR.
Once you are there you will see this at the bottom of the calendar:
Just click on it and follow the instructions to merge it with your own
Our Google Calendar is updated daily or as soon as something needs to be
added or changed. We do not recommend printing the calendar and posting
it on your fridge as we don’t send out notifications for daily input.
However, if you are a subscriber to the calendar, you will receive a
change notification if you like. This is something you can control in
your settings. We also post the next week or so of important dates at
the end of this blog post every week, so you will also have a quick
weekly view that way.
Our school (like all BGRS schools) is on an automated call out system.
By 9:00 am and 1:00 pm every day the system will email, text and/or call
parents of absent students. To prevent these
messages, please contact our school and let us know in advance of a
student absence. Our preferred method of notification is through our Online Absence Form. If you do not have access to a computer or device, you can also call our office at 780-929-8663 and select option 2. You can talk with our secretaries or leave a message.
