Parent & Teacher Interviews

Parent & Teacher Interviews are scheduled on Thursday, February 11, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm and also on the PA Day on Friday, February 12, 9:00 am to 11:30 am. For this set of interviews, teachers are placing a priority on meeting the parents of students:
1. Who are at risk, or may be at risk, for promotion to the next grade
2. Who are being considered for placement in an alternative or special education program
3. Whose achievement has declined significantly
In the next few days, teachers will be connecting with parents of these students, to arrange an interview time.

Our teaching staff are also available for an interview (in person or by telephone) to discuss the progress of your child for the first term. If you wish to arrange an interview, please use the online interview scheduler at http://hodgson.schoolappointments.com (The scheduling website will walk you through the steps to set up your appointments.)

The appointment system opens for parents on February 6.  Parents will be able to make their own interview appointments online from Saturday, February 6 at 9:00 am until noon on Thursday, February 11. If you are unable to arrange an interview with a teacher because their schedule is full, please email the teacher directly to arrange an interview at a different time. (Please go to Hodgson Staff page on the school website to see teacher email addresses.)

If you require assistance with booking or are unable to use the system for any reason, please contact Ms. Sandy Colyn in the Hodgson office at 416.393.0390 or at Sandy.Colyn@tdsb.on.ca 

Hodgson Rink Update

We are happy to report that the on-going partnership between the City and the TDSB has resulted in an amendment which will increase the community hours at Hodgson ice rink. The original agreement between the City and the TDSB gave the school and TDSB access to the rink during school hours (7:30 am to 4:30 pm) and gave the City access from 4:30 pm to 10:00pm. The City and the TDSB, who have been working together since October to work on a solution that would provide more access for the community, have agreed to amend the original agreement. The amendment will see the rink open for community access from 11:30 am on weekdays for the 2015-2016 season. Under the agreement, community access will be determined on a yearly basis, depending on the programming needs of Hodgson Sr. PS and the TDSB.

The amending agreement is in the final stages of being signed, but the City will begin staffing the rink at 11:30 am staring on Monday, January 18. This means our students can skate, supervised by the City, during lunch and right after school for the remainder of the school year. More information on times and programs will come from the City at a later date.

The original City-TDSB agreement and the recent amendment are the result of the tremendous commitment and dedication of TDSB Trustee Laskin, many TDSB staff, Councillor Matlow and many City of Toronto staff. These individuals are to be commended for their work to support the students at Hodgson and the members of our community.

Hodgson's Schedule

We follow a 10 day cycle, rather than a Monday to Friday cycle, which likely explains why everyone asks, "What day is it today?"  We have six 50 minute periods each day, with periods 1, 2 & 3 before lunch and periods 4, 5, & 6 after lunch. Just to make things a little more complicated, we have 2 minutes of transition time between periods to allow students and teachers to get from one class to another.

Here is our daily schedule:
8:55: Student Entry
9:00-9:50: Period 1
9:52-10:42: Period 2
10:44-11:34: Period 3
11:34-12:30: Lunch recess
12:30: Student Entry
12:35-1:25: Period 4
1:27-2:17: Period 5
2:19-3:09: Period 6
3:09: Dismissal
4:00: School day ends
