In partnership with Toronto Public Health VPtv presents #WalkSafe

Valley Park VOICE: At A Glance Bulletin Board

Happy Ramadan to all who begin their celebration this weekend.

TALENT SHOW

Congratulations to Mr. McDermott, and Ms Siapardanis for organizing a fantastic show today! Look for the show CD during the first week of June. And look for portions of the show on the May edition of VPtv NEWSREELS on Rogers tv Toronto!

NUTRITION SERVICES

For the last several weeks of the school year our school nutrition programs will be modified. Snacks will be available for students to pick up on the way to class in the morning rather than served during class. Our cafe servery will offer a modified menu including sandwiches, pizza, poutine and patties. Please remember that all VPMS students are expected to remain on school property and supervised by school staff every lunch hour.

GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

The growth and development lessons of the health curriculum will be completed during the following weeks:
Grade 8: May 29 - June 1
Grade 6: June 5 - June 8
Grade 7: June 12 - June 15

The lessons will be taking place on two specific mornings of the specified week. Letters to parents explaining

- the exact date/time of their classes' lessons
- where parents can learn more about the content of these lessons
- and the process to seek a religious accommodation

are being sent home with students one week before the unit begins for each grade.

Please contact the principal if you have any further questions.

Valley Park School of Communication and Media Arts.
 As Vice-principal at Valley Park since 2015, I am pleased to be serving as principal of our Summer Program this year. An extra month of programming provides our students with an opportunity to stay connected to school and continue to develop their academic skills. I recognize the importance of providing opportunities for students to be challenged to become disciplined thinkers in order to communicate their ideas clearly and effectively, whether in preparation for high school, to build literacy skills or to learn more about technology and media arts.
 
Communication skills are essential for success. Students can benefit from the ability to communicate ideas and information in a variety of ways, using media, social media and technology. Valley Park is hosting a summer program that provides a unique opportunity for students in Grade 6, 7, & 8 to work on these skills in an engaging and collaborative way.
 
Students will:
Learn how to write rich and engaging text for newspapers and magazines !!
 
Analyze and create a variety of types of  advertising using several forms of media !!
 
Develop the ability to use social media to change the world in a positive way !!
 
Become an on-screen television reporter or news anchor while learning about broadcast journalism !!
 
Free
July 5th- 28th
9:00am-12:00pm
Registration forms due to the school office by Friday, April 7th.
 
Please contact Valley Park Middle School with any questions.

Sincerely,

Hilary Farrell
