Information for Grade 5 Students

May 11, 2020

Hello Grade 5 Parents/Guardians and Students!

We hope you are well and are all keeping safe!  As you can well imagine, the process we had usually followed for Grade 5 students transitioning over to South Queens Middle School has changed.  The purpose of this letter is to explain the process for this year.  Please read the information carefully.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Stewart at or Ms Thorburn at 


We are still waiting on more direction from the SSRCE as a region but we are looking at producing a video that informs students of the building layout and the staff that will be working with the Grade 6s.  Stay tuned for more information on this topic.


If your child would like to join band next year, Ms Wilson has developed a form for you to fill out with their preferences.  Please fill out the form using this link: 

The information from this survey will go directly to Ms Wilson so that she can plan for next year.

You will find in the attachments of this email an information sheet and a registration form.  Please fill out the information on the registration form and return to the school.  You can return the form two ways: by email at or by mail at PO Box 1288 Liverpool NS B0T 1K0.  It is important to have these forms returned to the school by May 31, 2020
