Kindergarten Registration

SEPTEMBER 2017 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

Kindergarten is the first step in a lifelong journey that will see your child learn, grow, and succeed at the Toronto District School Board. At the TDSB, we know early learners learn best through doing; so our four and five year olds are introduced to math and science through play as part of k-12 STEM programming. To inspire a love for learning, kindergarten classrooms are bustling with inquiry and exploration through science activities, math games, art projects and more.

 To attend Junior Kindergarten in September, children must turn four-years-old by December 31.

To register for Senior Kindergarten, children must be five-years-old by December 31.

Registration for students in the Eglinton catchment area will take place at Eglinton P.S. on Wednesday February 15th (9:00 – 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 – 6:30 p.m.) and Thursday February 16th (9:00 – 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.).















Please visit the TDSB website at Find Your School to determine where you should be registering your child.















It is essential that you have all required documents to proceed with registration. If you do not have all the required documentation, you will be asked to book an appointment for a future date to register your child.

Eglinton Students in the News

We are so proud of Lucas in Mme Brewer's class for bringing his idea to help newly arriving refugees to life! Lucas decided to begin a clothing drive and our community showed their true colours by donating a large amount of clothing, hats, mittens and scarfs that will be delivered today to a welcoming center for Syrian Refugees. Watch Lucas, Mila and Roxanne on City News below!

Eglinton Public School Logo



Mr. Leverty, the Administration and Staff of Eglinton PS and the Eglinton Parent Council have been working on developing a new logo for the Eglinton Eagles to identify us as a school.

First of all, our staff narrowed approximately 80 proposed logo submissions down to 2. Then we set up a week of online voting that was open to the staff, students and community of Eglinton PS to hear the collective voice of our community. Thanks to all of your support, we have selected our new logo! Thanks to all those who voted for being part of history.

Dismissal Procedures

Please review the information in the memo and discuss these procedures with your children. We want to ensure that all students are accounted for and are safely picked up at the end of the day.

Thank you!

Mental Health Belongs to Us

Mental Health and Well-Being is essential to student success. As we know, children of all ages can and do experience anxiety. See the TDSB September Mental Health Newsletter for information on the signs of anxiety and how to address these feelings with your children.

Weekend Reading

Interesting blog post on 21st century learning and the skills that children need to be successful 21st century learners. 

- Grit
- Resilience
- Hope and Optimism
- Vision
- Self-Regulation
- Empathy & Global Stewardship

The author, Jackie Gerstein, contributes these attributes as some of the skills that our children need to embrace.  She goes on to list some children's books that are good examples to help teach children and youth about these skills.  Some are even appropriate and applicable for adults. Children’s books, as they are written and presented as stories, have great potential to explain these often abstract concepts. Take a look at some of the books below, you've probably read some already.

Grit

Resilience

Hope and Optimism

Vision

Self-Regulation

Empathy and Global Awareness

Here are some other skills that may fit as well:

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

Collaboration

Curiosity and Imagination
