Grade 6 French Immersion 2021-2022

Dear New Grade 6 Parents,

Welcome to your first South Queens Middle School email!  We are excited to be starting the process for your child to attend SQMS in the Fall of 2021.

This message is regarding the French Immersion Program.  Today Mr. Tutty visited each Grade 5 classroom at DJCWA and gave the students information regarding the program.  Students are coming home with a pamphlet that gives an overview of the program and is the actual application for your child to attend the program (the pamphlet is also attached to this email).   Also, below is a Google Form with some questions for you to answer.

If your child is interested in becoming a French Immersion student in Grade 6, please fill out the Google Form; in addition, fill out the application and return it to your child’s Grade 5 teacher by Monday, May 3 as this is the cut off date for applications


Wednesday, April 21, you are invited to attend a Google Meet from 6:00-7:00pm where more information about the program will be provided by the SSRCE, Mr. Tutty and SQMS Admin.  Any questions you might have will be answered at this time. 


If you are unable to attend the Google Meet, and you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Tutty at or call the school at 902-354-7640.

We look forward to “seeing” you on Wednesday!

Parent Teacher Reminder

Good Afternoon Families,

Just a reminder that tomorrow (Thursday, April 8th) is Parent-Teacher.  As a result, students will be dismissed at 11:25am.  There will be NO cafeteria service tomorrow because of the early dismissal.

Thank you

Parent Teacher

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thursday, April 8 will be Parent/Teacher for South Queens Middle School.  The times will be 12:30pm- 2:30pm and 5:00pm-7:00pm.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to have in-person meetings. 

As a result, there will be a choice of phone interview (teachers will call you) or virtual meeting (teachers will send you a Google Meet link); we are asking that you book a 10-minute time slot with the teachers you wish to speak with about your child. 

In order to book an appointment, please phone the school (902-354-7640) between 8:00am and 3:00pm (starting Monday, March 29, until Wednesday, April 7) or email us at  You will need to let us know which teachers you want to see (please see attachment for teachers and subjects taught), your preferred method for meeting and your phone number or email address in which you will want to be contacted.

If you have any questions about this process, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your co-operation!

Report Cards

Dear Families,

Once again this year, we will be distributing report cards and IPP reports electronically via EduPost. Parents and guardians should expect to receive an email with a link to the online report by April 2, 2021.

These emails will be sent to the addresses we have on file in PowerSchool. If your email has changed, please contact us at  We will continue to provide paper copies for families who do not have an email address on file or, do not have internet access.

The delivery time of these electronic reports will vary. If you do not receive your child’s report card or IPP report by Tuesday, April 6, please contact us ASAP.

Thank you

SQMS Administration


Hello Families! Just a reminder that students should be bringing their school issued Chromebooks to school everyday, charged and ready to go. Students are not permitted to use their phones for work completion- this is because all students have access to a Chromebook from the school (or they have their own tablet, computer, etc.).

If there is an issue remembering the Chromebook for the students then they should be keeping them in their classrooms.

Thank you for your co-operation!
