MILLWOOD JUNIOR SCHOOL


Millwood Loves Math Night
(Lots of Options Led By Our Amazing Staff)

Millwood Families are invited on Monday March 6th from 5:30-6:30.


Please register ASAP

 
Books Coming Home
Parents it is our school expectation that actual books come home for your child to read and possibly discuss with you. With all of the resources we have, and all of the money we raise through our Book Fairs, we want every child to take books home (and hopefully return them) regularly.

If your child isn't bringing an actual book home please ask your teacher for a book that is at their level.

 
What happens with all of the Book Fair money?
We could take a small % in cash, but instead we opt for 60% back in books. These new French and English books are then used by our classroom teachers to ensure your children have books (and not photocopied books) to take home that are at your child's level. We are also investing heavily in books related to issues of equity and Aboriginal Education. We are focusing on these two topics across all of our classrooms. Thank you very much for supporting our school, and your child(ren), once again.
 
Room 25 Update - Despite being new to the school Ms. Calderone will be available for the interviews to meet all of the parents/guardians of the students in room 25.

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.


School Council Executive:

Brad Gibson (Co-Chair) e-mail Mr. Gibson here
Joanne Azevedo-Vaz (Co-Chair) e-mail Ms. Azevedo-Vaz here
Jennifer Ng (Secretary)



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.
