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

Summer School 2016 Newsletter Part Three

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

Happy Summer!

Thank you for another amazing year at Brock! We hope you are enjoying a well deserved break with your families!

We are now well into our summer school program! It's been great to see so many excited students, both Brock students and students from over 30 different schools in Ontario! Classes are involved in inquiries about the environment and are taking part in many exciting activities, such as art, cooking, and Lego robotics. They are also looking forward to many field trips to the public library, High Park, Kortright Centre for Conservation, and more!

Here is an important message from Ms. Samuel about staying active:





How will you keep the kids active this summer? Take a trip down to the beaches at Ashbridges Bay!  While you are there enjoying the summer sun, why not take a practice run through the cross country route for your new grade?  Cross country season will be here before you know it!





Have a safe and active summer!

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;
