What to Bring: 

Please always send your children with rain gear and warm layers.  Our weather changes very quickly here, so it's best to be over prepared then under prepared as we will try to spend most of our time outside.  



At the Bell (2:30): After School Staff will pick up grades K - 2 at their classrooms and escort them to the program. Grades 3 - 5 are to meet in the Strong Start room. These instructions will be included in the afternoon announcements from the School.

2:30 – 3:00 pm: “Check In “ at the Strong Start room will include attendance, a healthy snack and setting expectations for the program.

3:00 – 4:30 pm: Instructor time outside – in the case of extreme inclement weather the group will stay in the Strong Start classroom (upstairs).  The locations will vary depending on the day including the Wickanninish School forest area, the forest area in Tonquin Park or Tonquin Beach. We will have all parents sign a walking field trip waiver before leaving the school grounds. 

4:30 pm: Students are to be picked up in the Forest area outside the school or in the Strong Start room on stormy weather days.
