Welcome to Irma Coulson Public School

Celebrating Student Success @ ICPS
During the week of March 2-6 our Grade 1 - 8 classes will be welcoming family and friends to join them in a Celebration of Student Success. Be it walking visitors through a Day in the Life of a Grade 2, experiencing some Found Poetry with our Grade 6 and 7s, or engaging in Building Structures with the Grade 5s in our Design & Technology, our students look forward to sharing their learning with you during your visit.  Check with your student(s) or homeroom teacher for more details.

Kiss and Ride UPDATE
With the colder weather comes an increase in traffic through our 'Kiss & Ride'. To ensure the safety of children being dropped off and our pedestrian traffic, as well as improve the efficiency of our system, you'll see some additions to our processes.

Most noticeably, the Drop Off area at the front of the school is now defined by two lanes, marked clearly by signs. The right hand lane will allow families to drop off students in Grades 2 – 8, directly at the curb, then pull forward in the same lane and exit at the end of the zone. The left hand lane will now be designated for cars exiting the K- Grade 1 Kiss & Ride loop ONLY. As we transition into using a 2-lane system, we ask families to follow the direction of the staff that will be supporting this new process.

We will be sending the PITA and PIZZA forms for the last term home during the week of Feb 23 and they will be due on March 6, 2015.

Due to the complexity of organizing all of these orders we will be unable to accept late forms.  We appreciate your promptness in returning them to the teacher asap.  As a reminder if you haven't done so already, please consider signing up for cashless payments as it is immediate and easily refundable if necessary. Thank you.
