Summer School 2017

Brock is once again holding our Inquiry-Based Learning Environmental Summer Program this July 5-18. The program will run from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm for SK to grade 8 students.

If you have not already done so, please return all outstanding forms from the registration package to Brock's office ASAP. 

Registration is now closed. Confirmation letters have been sent to students' home schools. Your child's class is subject to change. New confirmation letters will be sent to home schools as needed. Final class lists will be available on July 5. Thanks for your understanding.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to learning with you in July!

Canada 150 School Assembly

Please join us on Thursday June 8 at 1:00 pm for our Canada 150 School Assembly! Several classes will be performing and others will have wonderful art pieces on display. We look forward to seeing you!

Streetproofing Tips

We would like to take this opportunity to remind students and parents how to be safe both at home and in the community. It is important that students have the knowledge and skills to keep themselves out of harm's way.

Families, please review the following Streetproofing Tips for Elementary (K-6) and Streetproofing Tips for Intermediates (Grade 7-8) with your children. 

Let's work together to keep our community safe.

Our Newsletter Has Gone Green!

Starting January 2017, all monthly newsletters will be posted ONLINE only.

As an eco-school and after taking into account the large number of families who are active online already, we are endeavouring to reduce our paper consumption by not printing a newsletter for each student. We will however, have a small number of paper copies available in the office. Please have your child drop by if you would like one.

You may view a PDF of the current newsletter at http://schoolweb.tdsb.on.ca/brock/Newsletters.aspx. The link is also pinned to our Twitter page @TDSB_BrockPS.

We try very hard to have the newsletter finished by the end of the month. However, please be patient as sometimes this is not possible. The grade 7s want to make sure it’s their best work. Some months may be combined as well (for example, a March/April edition).

We hope you continue to read and enjoy our newsletters that the grade 7 class works so hard to complete each month!

Attendance is Important

Our school social worker, Aliza Shupac, spoke with the School Council about how both regular attendance and punctuality impact the success of students' academic careers. Please read about how to build the habit of good attendance early in your child's school career. More great information is also in this informative powerpoint presentation.

School begins at 8:45am for grade 1 to 8 students and at 9am for kindergarten students.

Brock Rocks- Our Song!.pdf

 


Brock Public School located near College and Dufferin was founded in 1887. Our talented and dedicated staff work co-operatively to nurture excellence, responsibility, teamwork and joy through learning. Staff provide a broad range of activities including music, visual arts, drama and sports. Students are encouraged to practice teamwork while having fun and keeping fit as they learn about themselves, about each other and the world in which they live.

Brock is an arts focused, ECO certified school with walls that are covered with student art. Our Rooftop Garden engages students with the natural world in a hands-on ecological learning environment. In 2009, Brock was a finalist in the Garfield Weston Award for Excellence in Education.



As part of the Toronto District School Board, we value
  • each and every student;
  • a strong public education system;
  • a partnership of students, schools, family and community;
  • the uniqueness and diversity of our students and our community;
  • the commitment and skills of our staff;
  • equity, innovation, accountability and accessibility; and
  • learning environments that are safe, nurturing, positive and respectful.

Our web site is one way we can demonstrate these values. Click on the menu items to find out more about our school and please visit often.
