During the month of November, the character trait we shine a spotlight on is Empathy.  

Williamson Road is recognizing Anti-bullying awareness week with a poster contest.  Please visit the bulletin board across from the office to see the display. 

We define bullying this way:

“Bullying is when you keep picking on someone because you think or act like you’re cooler, smarter, stronger or better than them.” It happens when there are more of you, or you’re older than them and you keep targeting them over time.

Upcoming Dates

  • November 22nd - Recognition Assembly
  • November 26th - Pizza Lunch
  • December 6th - PA Day
  • December 10th - Pizza Lunch
  • December 16th - Winter sing-along

Safe Arrival Program

One measure of keeping students safe is ensuring students have safely arrived at school.To that end, we currently have a Safe Arrival protocol in place. 

If your child is going to be absent or late, you are responsible for calling the Safe Arrival line (416-393-1739) before 8:30 a.m. reporting the reason for the absence.

If we have not been informed of the reason for the absence, the automated school connects system will call you.
