About Melissa Street
The afterschool program that runs out of Melissa Street accommodates children from Kindergarten to Grade 5 who attend Barkers’ Point Elementary. Located in the Pepper Creek area, this facility is as diverse as it is expansive. Fun and creative centres like a playhouse, a school bus and a cozy reading corner are irresistible to the children and offer endless opportunity for learning and play. Their outdoor play space boasts a playground, hills and a wooded area which encourages great imaginative play. Transportation to our facility from school is provided by the school district.
Happy New Year! It is officially cold weather - Please don't forget to dress your child in appropriate outdoor clothing. Our Educators try to take the children outside twice a day. Layers are always a good idea, too! Indoor shoes are also needed!
Reminder if you have not paid your yearly Helping Hands fee of $10, then please do asap!
Classroom calendars and newsletters will now be on Seesaw. There will also be a copy outside of your child's classroom door.
