The school day begins at 8:53 am and students are expected to be at school on time.

Please drop off your child/ren at least 5 minutes before the bell rings at their assigned door at the back of the school.

Morning Bell: 8:53 am

Lunchtime:   11:40 am to 12:30 pm

Dismissal:   3:15 pm sharp

If late, student/s can be picked up at the office.

Student Absences

As a parent/guardian you are responsible for calling the school if your child/ren will be absent due to illness, appointment(s) and any other reasons.

You may call the school at (416) 395-2420 and leave a message in the Safe Arrival voice mail and any time before 8:45 a.m. (including after 2:00 pm, evening and middle of the night) and not necessarily before school is about to begin.  


Your child/ren's health and safety are extremely important.

Please ensure we have the most up-to-date information on file

 especially phone numbers and emergency contacts.

Eco Schools Silver Certification

Highlights of Firgrove's Eco Audit Report

Certification Level: GOLD

1. Your school has been able to take advantage of the EcoSchools resources provided by having a design consultation. It has proven to be a strong part of your school’s Eco initiatives, and it is truly admirable to see all that has been done! Especially the progress that has been made in the Kindergarten area, as it is remarkable how dedicated your school has been in incorporating the outdoors into their learning.

2. It is great to see that Litterless Lunches have been successful within your school community! By rewarding the class that had the most participation, it is encouraging the students to participate. Keep up the great work!

3. Holding a Samosa Sale to fund initiatives that the club has is an innovative way to combat some of the budget issues that can arise when trying to implement a program like EcoSchools. It was awesome that the team was able to fund their t-shirts and garbage collection tools through the sale, and consider continuing this in future years!

Firgrove Students Making a Difference

The second initiative of the students who were inspired by the Me to We program was the Spare Change Drive. With the help of all of you, we raised enough money for one goat and three bundles of chicks! We look forward to the next initiative of our wonderful students!

Another one of February’s successes was the Book Drive initiated by one of our Grade 5 students, Melissa. Thank you to all of you who donated books that will make the lives of the children at Sick Kids Hospital a little happier!

February was Black History Month. Students learned about slavery and the Underground Railroad, as well as racial segregation and the fight for its abolishment. Here is what Khalid, a grade 3 student, wrote about one of the famous slaves in the history of the Underground Railroad.

"Henry ‘Box" Brown was a slave since he was a little boy. He worked very hard, but instead of freeing him, his master gave him away to his son. Henry worked hard for his new master too. When he grew up, he married and had children. But one day his master sold his children and his wife to another master. This made Henry very sad and determined him to free himself. So Henry mailed himself into a box to Pennsylvania, where some people who believed slavery was wrong were waiting for him. What I learned from Henry "Box" Brown was that you have to be confident and have the courage to accomplish something if you believe it is right. Also, I learned that everyone can have good friends and you should trust your friends."
