Dear Parents
My name is Mme Alexandra Bournelis, and I’m your child’s grade 6/7 teacher. This is my second year at Belmont and I am looking forward to having an excellent year as a part of this school’s wonderful community.
As this week progresses, I will be adding you, through email, to an app/database called “Fresh Grade.” Fresh Grade will allow you to keep track of your child’s grades throughout the year and to know if assignments are missing. You do not have to be a part of Fresh Grade if you don’t want to. I’m also happy to answer any questions you have through email, phone calls, or at school (I have an open-door policy).
Things to know:
  • I have a class blog where homework and important messages are updated:; I will not be signing agendas or expecting parents to do so unless as student is having regular issues with being unprepared.
  • Grade 6 French Immersion Parents: If you are planning to fundraise for the 2018 trip to Québec, please send an email to ASAP to let the fundraising group know.
  • I will (*most likely) be teaching Math 6 while Mme Beaulieu and Mme Balzarini will teach Math 7 and Math 7 Challenge respectively.
  • Sept 22 is meet the teacher!
  • I enjoy doing Science/Tech/Engineering activities to explore different concepts and for teambuilding and cooperative learning. As such, I am collecting certain recyclable materials to have readily available in our classroom. If you have any donations to supply, that would be much appreciated. I’m currently collecting: Plastic lids, bottle caps, small containers (such as yoghurt or butter), corks, bubble wrap, cardboard tubes (toilet paper or paper towel), small scraps of woods, plastic bottles.

Mme Bournelis (
