NOT A PARKDALE TRIP
It has come to our attention that some students have brought home brochures for student trips to tropical locations. Parkdale CI does NOT organize a “Grad Trip” over the Winter Break in December or over the March Break or in the summer. Any such trip is not organized, sanctioned or supervised by Parkdale staff, nor is there any fundraising at Parkdale for such a trip. We have learned that some students in some secondary schools are being approached by S-Trips to act as “organizers” for student trips. The S-Trip brochures might use school names, and may give the impression to parents that these trips are sanctioned by the TDSB and supervised by school staff. These trips are not sponsored or endorsed by Parkdale CI or the TDSB.

Letter from Principal Irene Chewchuk:
On the eve of my retirement, I have had the opportunity to reflect on my career in education as a student, teacher, Curriculum Leader and Administrator. I have come to realize, appreciate and value the people I have connected with over the years and the connections that have developed into relationships that will forever be cherished. It was an absolute honour and pleasure to serve the Parkdale school community for the last 15 years.
Parkdale is also saying farewell to our Vice Principal Rob Palmer who has served the Parkdale school community for the last 6.5 years. Rob will be joining the administrative team at Humberside Collegiate. Rob has been a valuable member and strong supporter of Parkdale and its community.
In exchange, Parkdale welcomes Vice Principal Debra Muchnik from Humberside. She brings with her experience and passion that will undoubtedly support her transition to the Parkdale school community.
Parkdale also welcomes Alisa Cashore as Principal. Alisa is excited and enthusiastic to join the Parkdale Collegiate family and serve the community in the years to come. On behalf of Parkdale we wish you all the best in your future endeavors to move the school in a positive direction.
