Room in APPLE!

It’s not too late to join APPLE for the 2017-2018 school year.  Contact registrar@appleprogram.ca to see if there’s spots available in the right grade for your child.  We would love to have you join the APPLE community!

Important Emails have been sent to you!

Both the Family directory and the minutes from our last GM have been recently emailed to you.  If you do not seem to be receiving APPLE email or you wish to change your email contact information, then please contact secretary@appleprogram.ca.

Please remember that the directory is to be used for APPLE community activity only.  Thank you to Mari our secretary for compiling all of our information into this handy tool!

Student Absent Line

The new absent line is up and running – 1-844-305-3756

You can report late arrivals, full day absences, and sign outs.  The system automatically identifies your children based on the registered phone number or if you are calling from another number then you will have the opportunity to add your registered number.

Sign up for the REMIND APP

Our APPLE Secretary will begin using the Remind App this year. All reminders only (i.e. core gazette submission deadline, fundraising campaign deadline, etc.) will be sent out this way instead of through email. The process to sign up is quick and easy. There are three ways to receive reminders:

·         To receive reminders through text message, text the code @appleinfo to (519)968-0216. You will receive a welcome text from Remind.

·         To receive reminders through email sign up at   https://www.remind.com/join/appleinfo

·         You can also download the Remind App. Enter the code above to receive reminders through this app.

Please email secretary@appleprogram.ca if you have any questions.


Amanda Carew, Fundraising chair, is in need of a co-chair for the committee.  Your commitment to co-chair is for one year to be the support to the chair with then moving into the fundraising chair position after that year.  If you are interested in this position, please contact Amanda at fundraising@appleprogram.ca.

Thank you to Amanda for all your hard work~!
