October Spirit Day

Hodgson is having a Spirit Day on Friday, October 31st. The Spirit Day morning will include school-wide activities, a food drive for the Daily Bread Food Bank and a costume contest. A Dance and Alternate Activities are planned for the afternoon. Hodgson’s Student Leadership Council will be involved in the organization of this event.

Students will attend their regularly scheduled period one class, where they will learn about and discuss the issue of hunger in Toronto. After that, they will join their Colour House to participate in door decorating, hat making, scarecrow (mascot) creating, and food drive collection. Colour Houses will compete for points through teamwork, participation, creativity, and clean-up. Individuals may also compete in the costume contest in the following categories: scariest, funniest, most ridiculous, and most creative. We will end the morning with a Colour House Assembly in the gym. After lunch, students can choose to attend the Hallowe’en Dance or they can choose to go to the Library for alternate activities. If your child will not be attending the afternoon session, please let us know in advance by telephone (416) 393-0390 or via email.

We are asking for donations of:
• old clothes, masking tape, and newspapers for the scarecrows
• flattened cereal boxes, paper plates, and newspapers for the hats
• non-perishable goods for the food drive
Please have your child bring any donated items to her or his homeroom teacher.

Grade 8 to 9 Transition

Grade 8-9 Transition

Parents of grade eight students are invited to join us at Hodgson SPS on October 16th at 6:30pm, for a very important presentation about the grade 8 to 9 transition process.

You will learn more about pathways for success, secondary programs and specific school information.

Please visit Hodgson's Guidance website for additional information about this process.


High School Information Nights

Parents are encouraged to attend their home school Grade 8 Information Evening as well as the Information Evening at other schools you are interested in.

The information evenings are listed in the “Choices For Nine” brochure that your child will be bringing home the first week of November. Alternatively, you may visit the TDSB website to find out when each secondary school is hosting their information night.

You can also connect with our Guidance Counselor, Joanne.McBride@tdsb.on.ca

Hodgson Updates

Rather than publish a monthly newsletter, we prefer to send important school information directly to your e-mail address. We only use your email address for Hodgson business and we never display email addresses (we use bcc). Hodgson email updates are sent to registered parents only.

It is a great way to connect, to communicate and to get information.

Please note that Canada's New Anti-Spam Legislation requires us to have your consent to receive Commercial Electronic Messages (CEM) from us. Hodgson Updates included school-based information and can also include Commercial Electronic Messages such as school fundraisers, pizza lunch noices, reminders about student activity fees, etc.

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
