MILLWOOD JUNIOR SCHOOL

Was your child born in 2013?
Is Millwood your home school?
If you answered yes to both of these questions, please call the school to set up an appointment to register your child for Junior Kindergarten in September 2017 at our school. Appointments will take place on February 6th, 7th and 8th.


-----------------------------------------------
 
Our staff worked together on Wednesday the 11th to continue to develop our understandings on how to differentiate instruction effectively. We have a hard-working staff who recognize that every child learns in different ways and a one-size fits all teaching approach doesn't work. We will be meeting in small groups again throughout the day again in the near future to carry on our discussions.

---------------------------------------------

We're getting "online"! Please register to join us as a Cashless School as per below... our participation rate is now OVER 50%. Well done!

Please note ALL field trips and more will be paid for in this manner going forward so don't wait! Sign up today :)

--------------------------------------------

WE ARE NOW A CASHLESS SCHOOL!

You recently received an e-mail to help you register online. Every parent must complete this process.

HERE is a link to help you get started.

Thank you for taking to time to get our new system up and running. All payments are to be made using this new system starting on January 1st 2017. 

If you require any assistance contact the Parent Help Desk at 1-866-961-1803

--------------------------------------------------
Now that it is a lot colder than it was outside here is a friendly reminder of the guidelines we follow from the TDSB.

Weather Guidelines
The TDSB has specific policies in place regarding weather; hot, cold, snow or otherwise. Please see the links below for more information.

Inclement Weather Policy:
If your child is too sick to go outside for recess, for your child's safety, please keep your child home. Supervision is only provided outside during recess time (unless weather falls under one of the conditions below).

Conditions warranting indoor recesses:
(a) Rain, thunderstorms, lightning, hail, extreme winds and extreme cold as defined below.

(b) Cold weather: When temperature and/or windchill factor indicates -28C or lower children will remain indoors.

When temperature and/or windchill factor indicates –20C to –28C, recesses may be shortened and lunch recess may also be shortened depending on local conditions.
-----------------------------------------------------------


Millwood Hockey Update:

We will start our weekly practices on January 26th this year. These practices will take place at 8:15 for four Thursdays in a row at the Mastercard Centre (south on Kipling).

In the past we have allowed all of our interested participants to be part of our school team. We hope to continue that tradition, but it will depend on the number of students interested in being a part of this team.

Students interested in participating must have the full equipment to play. If you have any questions please talk to Ms. Lee or Mr. Pinkney who are co-coaching this year's team.
--------------------------------------------

I have two tickets for the Mississauga Steelheads available for lots of upcoming action. Follow me on Twitter (or on the right hand side of this page) for information on how you can get some FREE tickets for this high level OHL hockey. Let me know if you are interested by writing me a note and I'll see what I can do.

-------------------------
Walk, walk, walk, walk, walk, walk... we're encouraging all of our students to walk to or from school if they aren't on a school bus.


Don't turn our Kiss n' Ride into a Parking lot! For the safety of all of our kids please do not park on Mill Road or in the Kiss n' Ride. The police are supporting the safety of our kids so please be mindful of the choices you make. Thank you.

The chain goes across our Parking Lot every morning between 8:45 and 9:15 for safety reasons. If you are not walking or biking to school you may wish to choose to park on the west side of the school and walk through the forest. This would allow you to miss some of the busy traffic out in front of the school.


Please follow the Twitter feed on the right side of this page for the most frequent updates.


Don't forget that we have several books in my office specifically for you. Several parents have started to sign out books which is fantastic. The books relate to many pressing issues including positive discipline with your kids and raising an anxious child.
