Jump Rope for Heart- Thank You!

Congratulations Brock School! I am very happy to announce that we have completely crushed our goal of raising $3500. We raised a grand total of $4284.14!! Way to go! The thank you prizes are coming home today.

We are really proud of how much our school raises for this worthwhile charity. By fundraising for Jump Rope for Heart, you’re collecting donations that fund critical research that’s saving lives, preventing heart disease and stroke, and supporting survivors and their families.

Here are just some of the ways the dollars you raise help:

  • Close to $31 million funded research across Canada last year.
  • 8,000 life-saving automated external defibrillators (AEDs) were placed in communities across Canada.
  • eTools (such as the Heart&Stroke Risk Assessment) were developed to empower all Canadians to lead healthier lives.
  • We partnered to create Stop Marketing to Kids — a campaign protecting kids from unhealthy food and beverage advertising.
Over the past 14 years, we’ve raised a grand total of $461,530.47 for the heart and stroke foundation! Way to go Brock!

Thank you so much for your support of this worthwhile cause.

Actively yours,
Ms. Samuel

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. Please see our flyer for more information.

Here is a complete registration package should you require one. Please ensure all pages are signed and complete and return to your child's home school or Brock PS by April 28, 2017. Please note your child's teacher or principal must sign the form and attach a copy of their February 2017 report card. Brock students may pick up registration forms from the office.

Confirmation letters will be sent in June.

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

Parent and Student Census

Please check backpacks for information about an upcoming census for K-8 students and/or families.

If your child is in grade 4-8 and you do not want them to participate in the census, please sign and return the form on the bottom of the letter to your child's teacher.

English and some translated versions of the survey are available on the TDSB website.

Track and Field is Starting!

Dear Families,

Our track and field season is about to begin! New this year, track and field will be only for grades 4-8. For our younger students, we will try to have a "mini-meet" with neighbourhood schools. Details to follow.

We will start running practices for grades 4-8 on Tuesday, April 4 @ 7:45 AM. Please meet in the gym and be prepared to go up to Brockton track together. The weather can be very unpredictable. Please bring a woolly hat, mitts, and dress in layers. Please see the attachments for the calendar, permission forms and information letters. Field event practices will take place at school, during lunch time, on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Let's get running and jumping!

Actively yours,

Ms. Samuel, Mr. Crifo, Mr. Bryers, and Ms. Barbier.

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 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.
