EIPS Parent Survey: We want to hear from you
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) supports parent engagement at the Division and school levels. Gathering feedback from parents about the overall performance of EIPS and its 42 schools is an important component of that engagement. While parents of students in grades 4, 7, and 10 currently participate in the provincial Accountability Pillar Survey, EIPS is launching a Parent Survey designed to offer all parents an opportunity to provide their feedback about the Division and their school.
Rudolph Hennig School encourages all of our families to take a few minutes to complete the brief online survey. It will take approximately three minutes and will help to supplement the Division’s Accountability Pillar Survey data. The survey is open until Nov. 24, 2015.
Complete the 2015 Parent Survey now.
Thank you for your participation.
A Book For Every Child
RHJ is collecting new books for the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library's "Book For Every Child" program. Please deliver your new, unused books to Rudolph Hennig's library from now until November 30th.
Every new book that your child donates gets their name in a draw for a treat from Grimm's!
Thank you for your Raven support!
Boundary Exemption Requests
Boundary Exemption Request Process
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) boundary exemption request process for the 2016–2017 school year will take place from February 1 to April 15. This is the only time of year students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 wanting to attend a non-designated school in the upcoming school year can apply to do so. Interested families must fill out a Boundary Exemption Request Form and submit it directly to their requested school.
The Boundary Exemption Request Form will be available in mid-January. Additional information about the boundary exemption request process, schools with closed boundaries, and frequently asked questions can be found by visiting www.eips.ca/boundary-exemptions in the new year.
Students already accepted into their non-designated school don’t need to reapply.
Final decisions will be made by April 22, 2016.
School Boundaries Meeting
Upcoming Open House Consultations on Fort Saskatchewan School Boundaries
Mark your calendars for one of two upcoming community consultations for the next phase of the boundary review process in Fort Saskatchewan.
Thursday, November 19
Wednesday, November 25
Open House drop-in from 4:30-8 p.m.
Rudolph Hennig Junior High, gymnasium
9512 92 Street
Families are welcome to come at any time either evening that suits your schedule. A short presentation will take place at approximately 6 p.m. each evening. Representatives from Stantec Consulting Ltd. will review the data that has been collected and share an overview of what the data is telling us about how and where Fort Saskatchewan is evolving and growing. Attendees will have the opportunity to review the proposed options on new school boundaries for Fort Saskatchewan.
These options have been developed to determine a boundary area for the new K-9 school in Fort Saskatchewan by realigning our existing school boundaries.
We want to hear what you think about these options. Opportunities will be available throughout the entire open house to review the information, ask questions, and provide your feedback. The feedback collected will be used to review and refine the options. One final round of community consultation will take place before the recommended boundaries go to the Board of Trustees for approval in early 2016.
We encourage you to be part of these discussions. Please join us.

Included in this email is information on the Student portal as well as how to access your Powerschool information using your iPad or iPhone and the downloadable application. The Apple IOS and Android applications on first login can take up to 5 minutes to login. This is due to a large amount of data being downloaded to the mobile device and not because of a slow wireless or Internet connection.

Free Eye Glasses
FREE EYEGLASSES FOR CHILDREN!
When 80% of what we learn is through vision, and 1 in 4 children begins school with a visual challenge, eye examinations and correction of these challenges, when possible, is important for so many reasons. Uncorrected vision can lead to challenging behaviours, learning difficulties, low self-esteem, etc. Some families may opt not to test children’s vision and/or purchase eyeglasses due to the inherent expense. The Pearle Vision – Sherwood Park Project may be of help!
Every year, each Pearle Vision allocates one day in December to provide a target group with an eye exam (covered by Alberta Health Services) and free eyeglasses, if required. Pearle Vision - Sherwood Park Mall, chooses to support children from families with financial hardship who do not have another source (eg. health benefits) to meet this important need. This year, the clinic is on Tuesday, December 8th. Please share this information with your school counsellors and others, so it can be raised with families.
Some of our EIPS students have been assisted in the past! Hopefully we can bring things “into focus” for more of our students this year, and possibly pick up on some challenges that may otherwise go undetected.
