We Are Nut Aware and Shellfish Aware!

* Health Warning *

We have students and staff members attending Pentz Elementary School who have a severe life threatening allergy to peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish. Exposure to even a small amount of these products could cause anaphylactic shock, and, without immediate emergency medical assistance, loss of consciousness and death. The school has established an extreme allergy management and prevention plan for those affected, in consultation with the parents, other staff members, and the public health nurse.

At Pentz Elementary School, we accept and appreciate the diversity of our students and staff and, with the support of parents, strive to provide a safe environment for everyone. We are requesting that you do not include any peanut, nut  or shellfish products  in the recess snacks and lunches for your child.

We realize that this request is inconvenient for you at times, however, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for your support and understanding of these life threatening allergies.

Student Supplies - 2017-2018

            As in past years, classroom teachers would like to purchase the classroom supplies they require for the students themselves.  By doing this, it ensures that all students have the same type and quality of  supplies. Teachers are able to purchase in bulk, and therefore get better pricing.  Parents would need to ensure their child has a lunch box, backpack and indoor/outdoor sneakers.

             These supplies are for the entire school year and cover the basic supplies, such as duotangs, pencils, glue, and markers, along with supplies that would be required throughout the year based on the curriculum outcomes being covered at each grade level.   Teachers purchase supplies throughout the year for their students for various topics and themes being covered in Science, Art and Social Studies, for example.

            We are asking parents to send in their child’s supply money by June 26th. We do understand that not every family will be able to do so by this date, so we ask parents who are not able to send in supply money in June, to send in a note indicating that they will be sending it in on the first day of school.   Cheques are to be made payable to Pentz Elementary School.  Families may also pay by installments. 


The supply money being collected for next year for each student in

Grades Primary-Six will be $35.00.


If parents have any questions or concerns, feel free to call the school at 688-3210.
