MILLWOOD JUNIOR SCHOOL

Parents please allow your children to walk to their classrooms on their own (this includes Kindergarten parents!). Having parents wander the halls at the start of the day is a problem in too many ways to list. If you have any questions please ask.

With the front yard under construction, we will have the students from room 23 go to their classroom (on their own) and we will have the students from room 13 gather in the front entrance-way (also on their own). Thank you.



Our day with our 13 new friends from Denmark went extremely well. Our Millwood staff and students did a fantastic job sharing some of the best practices at our school. The school staff has worked hard to learn about current educational thought and work hard to offer our students the best opportunities they can so it was a great day to celebrate our steps forward. Congratulations Millwood!!


Our Holiday Concert will take place on the 21st of December. Details to follow...


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.




French Programs Application Deadline:
For families interested in the Toronto District School Board's French Immersion or Extended French programs, we offer an online process for applying to:
- Early French Immersion (EFI) which begins in Senior Kindergarten;
- Junior Extended French (JEF) which begins in Grade 4
TDSB guarantees an offer of placement in the program (not a specific school) to all on-time applicants. Transportation is provided as per the Board's Transportation policy.

The timelines for applying for these programs for September 2017 are:

- Applications for Early French Immersion (for a Junior Kindergarten aged child), must be completed online between November 1, 2016 and December 1, 2016.
- Applications for Junior Extended French must be completed online between January 9, 2017 and February 2, 2017.

Offers of placement within your chosen program will be made to all on-time applicants in the weeks following the close of the application window.

Please note: families with an older sibling currently in a French program are still required to complete an online application for the new student.




Don't forget that our staff has websites that often has the information you may be looking for. :)

Every year the School Council submits the School Statement of Needs (SSON). This helps shape the decision-making of our superintendents should the need to hire a new principal for the school. Last year's SSON is posted in the main hallway. You are invited to comment on it should you wish. Please e-mail any comments to our two School Council Co-Chairs, Mr. Gibson and Ms. Azevedo-Vaz.


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.
