Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Braeburn Junior School Web Site. This site is a work-in-progress involving students, teachers, Toronto District School Board staff, parents and a special volunteer. Together, as a community of learners, we work together to fulfill our mission statement, to improve student achievement, to learn about people from many ancestral backgounds, and to make exciting things happen at Braeburn.
Braeburn is a small school, currently housing approximately two hundred and twenty students and twenty-six staff members. In the late sixties when the school was built, Braeburn was a state of the art building. The library is at the hub of the school, with hallways and classrooms spreading out from this centre of literacy. How fitting for a school working hard to improve literacy for all! Our open plan facilitates significant team work and collaboration amongst staff members.
Braeburn expects hard work and responsibility for self and others from our students and our staff. We encourage parental involvement and open communication. Volunteers, who are greatly appreciated, help us to individualize programs and give students additional attention.
It is our hope that our web site will develop into a place where visitors can drop in briefly and learn a little more about this fine school. More importantly our web site will be a place for parents and students to access valuable information regarding the daily functioning of the school and view current students' work. Enjoy your visit!
