Starting mid-May, our classroom teachers, support staff, and administrators begin the process of class placements for next year. This is a very thoughtful process, and we take great care to construct each classroom so that it is balanced, based on a variety of criteria such as gender, levels, learning styles, and social/emotional needs. We also have to work within the structure of the school model (see above), recognizing that at times they are more/less grade placement options for students (e.g. we have 3 classes to place either Grade 1 Regular and French Immersion students, but only one class to place students in Grade 6 FI). Parent letters may also be taken into consideration, but it is very important to note that a letter, while considered, is not a guarantee of placement based on the parent request. If you wish to submit a placement letter for consideration, please email it to or All letters are due no later than May 5, 2017.  A placement letter can outline the type of learner your child is, friendships, and learning environments. Please do not indicate a specific teacher by name in your letter, as the letter would not be considered.   

Spring Concerts – May 17th & 31st 

We have two final concerts for the 2016/17 school year. Our first concert, to be held on May 17th, starting at 6:30 PM, includes the following classrooms performing: Rm 202 (Mme. Alwis), Rm 204 (Mme. Alcestis), Rm 205 (Ms. Maric-Jones), Rm 209 (Mr. Cressman), Rm 303 (Ms. Mohammed), Rm 310 (Mr. Zedzian), Rm 313 (Ms. Tvrdy/Sindholt), Portable 1 (Ms. Csamer), and our Junior Choir. 

All of our Kindergarten classes perform in our final concert of the year, to be held on May 31st at 2:00PM in the GPR. Our teachers, Mr. Recke, Ms. Arnone-Dimondo, Mr. Mccullough, Ms. Motala, Mme. Fournier, Ms. Douzenis, and Mme. Rankin, along with their Designated Early Childhood Educators, Ms. Kiriakidis, Mr. Uy, Ms. Pasalis, Mme Magat, Ms, Mohammed, and Mme Barret, are excited to have the students perform and celebrate the Arts. With all of our Kindergarten students performing at the final concert, we ask that families limit their attendance to a maximum of 2 adults. Child-minding will be available. 

EQAO Begins - May 23

Our Grade 3 and 6 students will spend time this month completing the EQAO Primary and Junior Assessments, beginning May 23. These one-time assessments are part of a broad range of assessments we use to understand out students strengths and areas of need. Classroom teachers use assessment for, of and as learning on a regular basis in their classroom programs, and information gathered from these is used to inform decisions on lesson design and next steps in the learning process. The EQAO assessments provide a snap shot of our students learning in the areas of Math, Reading and Writing, and we use these results to help inform our school improvement planning process. In this process, we establish learning goals as a staff, and work collaboratively on aligning resources and best practices to increase student achievement and well-being. Results from the EQAO Assessments are shared with the school and families in September 2017. We ask that families refrain from maing appointments for their child during the EQAO assessment process, as we must met prescribed timelines
