Orange Shirt Day

Monday September 30 is Orange Shirt Day. We encourage all students to come to school wearing orange to acknowledge the trauma that First Nations communities suffered and continue to suffer as a result of residential schools. This is an opportunity to learn about the effects residential schools continue to have on generations of survivors as well as honour those that were lost. 

More information can be found at #EveryChildMatters

Thank you to Ms. Moreiro and her grade 1/2 class for preparing posters, reading announcements, and giving a presentation at our recognition assembly on Monday.

School Communication and Safety

We hope you have had a wonderful first two weeks at school! As many of you know, communication from the school will be sent to you via email. If you have not been receiving emails, please inform the office of your current email address so you don't miss anything.

This is a welcome letter from Ms. Buhariwalla as well as an update on the new dress code policy. Both were emailed earlier this week. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind all parents that for safety reasons, please do not drop your children off at their classroom (unless you are dropping them off at daycare). To protect the safety of all students, please stay outside with your children in the school yard. Supervision begins at 8:35 a.m.Thank you!

Tumble Book a Day

Click on the Library page of this website for access to a new Tumble Book everyday! These are free online stories that you can read with your family. Happy reading!

Welcome back!

It's hard to believe summer is almost over. We hope you had a wonderful and relaxing break and are ready to start fresh next week!

School begins on Tuesday September 3, 2019. Teachers will be outside to greet students in the yard.

Please note the new school times. Entry is the same for most students (except for FDK), but the entire school is now dismissed earlier. Please read carefully.

You may also wish to download and save/print a copy of the full school year calendar with the 5-day cycle. It will make remembering gym shoes, library books, and PA Days easier!

NEW: School Start Up Forms Online

The TDSB is moving to collecting School Start Up Forms online this year using Permission Click. These forms include Walking Excursion, Severe Weather, Use of Technology, Media Consent Release, Code of Conduct and Medical Forms.    

A broadcast message will be sent by TDSB to all parents/guardians (priority 1 or 2 contacts with an email recorded in Trillium) through School Messenger on Thursday, August 30, 2019 to communicate the new process for digital forms.

An email will automatically be sent to the parent/guardian who is the primary or secondary contact (Priority 1 or 2) with an email in Trillium. The email will include a link for parents/guardians to complete the forms for each of their children and will be sent the next school day after attendance is taken and the student becomes active for the current school year. The email will come from the email address.

Brrr...The Cold Weather is Here!

Fresh air and exercise are important for children. It keeps them physically fit, and helps them stay alert all through the school day. Parents can help by making sure their children come to school prepared to spend time outdoors. Hats, mitts, boots and a warm jacket are important to keep students comfortable during lunch and recess. Students are reminded that they are to wear everything that they were sent to school with whenever they go outdoors.

The TDSB Severe Weather Protocol is flexible, so that every principal can make a decision that meets the needs of his or her school. It sets guidelines for when to allow students outside for recess, when to make outdoor breaks shorter, and when to keep students inside altogether. 

Elementary school students are kept indoors for recess and lunch times for a number of weather conditions such as rain, lightning in the area, extreme winds and extreme cold. When temperature and wind chill measure -28C or lower, students are kept indoors. Recesses and lunch hour may be shortened if the temperature and wind chill reading is between -20C and -28C.

Thank you for your cooperation to keep our students safe and warm during the winter months!

Immunization Records

As the new school year begins, it is important for Toronto Public Health and schools to have updated immunization information for your child. Please see the photo for what to do if you receive a letter from Public Health.
