The Toronto District School Board and Toronto Catholic District School Board are experiencing school bus delays. In particular, parents of students who use Attridge Transportation, Wheelchair Accessible Transit or Sharp Bus Lines should expect significant delays and the possibility that some buses may not be running due to an unanticipated bus driver shortage. We are working to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Letter to Parents/Guardians of Students Affected by School Bus Disruptions

Terry Fox Walk

Mark your calendars..September 29 is this year's date for our Terry Fox Walk. 

Please read the letter that was sent home for more information. We are asking students to bring in a "Twoonie for Terry" to donate towards cancer research and to support those living with the disease. If you wish to donate more, we have pledge forms at the school. You may also donate online at http://www.terryfox.ca/BrockPSToronto. Our goal this year is to raise $800. Thank you for your support!

Summer School!

As our final day of summer school comes to a close, we hope that all those who attended had a wonderful time this July. It was great to see the fun activities the classes were participating in, from cooking lots of healthy and delicious recipes, papier mache art, robotics, STEM, many field trips, author visits, and more!

We have complied all the learning and fun into a summer newsletter. There are so many fantastic photos, it's too big to fit in one file! Please see the newsletter below in three parts:

Summer School 2016 Newsletter Part One

Summer School 2016 Newsletter Part Two

Enjoy the rest of your summer! See you on September 6!

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.
