End of Year- Fees Update
Thank you for another great year using the Acorn Online QuickPay system. Please continue to go online to check that all your schools fees have been paid for the 2015 – 2016 school year as field trips, yearend activities and lost books may be added until school lets out for the summer.
For outstanding fees for 2015 – 2016, online payments for students returning to an Elk Island Public School for 2016 – 2017 may be made throughout the summer, using the PowerSchool parent portal. After August 4, 2016, online payments for students who are graduating or leaving Elk Island Public Schools will need to be made through the Student Quick Pay link https://www.studentquickpay.com/eips. Parents will then create a new account and link their student with the student ID.
All fees for the 2016 – 2017 school year will be available at the beginning of September. PLEASE NOTE that Junior High and Senior High fees may change as courses are added and deleted. The course change deadline is September 12, 2016.
If you have any questions regarding your students’ fees, please contact Mrs. Cathy Eyben, Business Manager at 780 416 9018.

2015 EIPS Parent Survey Results
The Fall 2015 EIPS Parent Survey was drafted based on key Accountability Pillar Survey questions and a System Satisfaction Survey that was administered across EIPS from 1999 to 2005. The survey was concise and gathered parent feedback on key educational quality characteristics: the quality of teaching, the quality of school leadership, communication and parent involvement, citizenship and discipline. The survey results will improve EIPS’ overall accountability structure and provide valuable data for school and division planning. 3,173 surveys were completed by parents. This is approximately a 19% response rate.

Kellie will also be missed by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, and special friends. Kellie was predeceased by her grandmother, Jean McGhan and grandfather, Bruno Jeske.
Kellie began working for Elk Island Public School in 1996 working as a substitute teacher, then teaching at Chipman, Westboro, and finally Lakeland Ridge. She also worked as a consultant for Alberta Initiatives for School Improvement project. Kellie was nominated for the Edwin Parr Award, an award recognizing excellent first year teachers for their outstanding teaching and service. As those of you who knew her can attest, she was kind, thoughtful, full of energy, and displayed a sensitivity to others which endeared her to staff and students alike.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Kellie’s memory may be made to The Lakeland Ridge Public School for memorial benches to be placed in the playground for the grade three buddies program.
