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.




Cinnabon is a new fundraiser for APPLE, how it works is we pre-sell certificates for $12.00 to family and friends.  All certificates are delivered to the APPLE family to give to the family and friends that ordered them.  The certificate is then taken to the Cinnabon location of choice to pick up your freshly baked package of Cinnabons. We get $3 back for each sale.  These orders are due by November 23rd
Send orders to:  Karen Papadopoulos c/o Daphne Papadopoulos Miss Szicsak.

Volunteer Opportunity- Penny Lane

Arthur ford nature park         The Nature Park committee is back at it and we need your help. Over the summer we had a small, but awesome, team of APPLE parents weeding the gardens in the Nature Park. Thank you for all your help and hard work! The gardens are large and we need more help weeding and trimming them down. Please find our contact information below if you are interested in helping out.

Another great way to get hours this fall would be to dig up your perennials and donate them to the Nature Park. We will be applying to become a registered way station for monarch butterflies.
We are looking for the following plants:
Host Plants for Monarchs – Milkweeds
Nectar Plants – Annuals or Biennials
Nectar Plants – Perennials

Happy harvesting,

Chelsea and Bridget
