and remember to bring your child's birth certificate and Care Card.
PAC FUNDRAISING - Did you know, you can support the fundraising efforts of your PAC, just by buying groceries at Overwaitea? There is no extra out-of-pocket cost to you! Simply buy an Overwaitea gift card (mention that it is to support Greenwood/Midway Elementary PAC), then use your gift card to pay for your groceries! 5% of all gift card sales goes directly back to the students (field trips, special guests, and more). What a great way to help your school!
Fundraising 6/7 Field Trip - THANK YOU to everyone for your continued and ongoing support of our fundraising efforts. We have started dreaming/planning for the 2018 field trip.
Contact Information - We must have up-to-date information in order to contact families in an emergency. Please call or email the school office if there is a change in address, phone number, email address, or your child's health or home situation. If you prefer, you may also print and fill out our change form, and return it to the school.
Please check your child’s hair for head lice on a weekly basis and, if necessary, on a daily basis. Public Health has provided us with an excellent "tip sheet" for "How to Deal with Head Lice."
