Message from the PrincipalI


So much thanks is due to our Parent Council, especially Toby Bruce for the work they did to create a wonderful, fun, and informative evening for families on April  13.  Those in attendance were treated to an entertaining evening of creative, active presentations that shared insights into the application of math and science in a variety of occupations.  Each year, our Parent Council works hard to create engaging events for the school community.  This was no exception.  
Our Jump Rope for Heart skip-a-thon is coming up next week, on the May 4 Early Dismissal Day.  Students will, once again, jump their hearts out to help raise money for the Canadian Heart and Stroke Association and all of their important work.  Our skipping team, organized by Mrs. Moore has been working hard to develop their skills which they demonstrated at the Jump Rope kick-off assembly on Monday, April 18.  We look forward to another successful event and hope that the weather co-operates.  Don’t forget, dismissal on Wednesday, May 4th is at 1:15 p.m.,  Students being collected from school should be picked up at that time.  Walkers and bus students will be arriving home 2 hours early.
May is a very busy month, as we fully engage in plans for the next school year:   class organization, staffing, class building, scheduling, etc.   When deciding on class placement for students we always endeavor to look for the best possible fit, taking into account their academic and social needs and strengths.  Clearly in a smaller school our options are more limited.  If you have particular requests regarding class placement, please submit them to the school office prior to the second week of June.
As the school year winds down, and as we are winding up for next year, we continue to  focus on best meeting the learning needs of all of our students.  If you have concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to call your child’s teacher.  Also, please remember to clearly communicate, in writing if possible, any changes to the end of day routine.
EQAO letters have been sent out to parents of students in grades 3 and 6.  Students will be writing the Education Quality and Accountability Office year end assessment as we move from May into June.
We are pleased to announce that, in celebration of our healthy snack program and our wonderful volunteers, we will be offering two Sub Days, when students will be able to order a free Subway sub sandwich(May 17 & June 21).  Order forms will be coming home shortly.
Our Track and Field event is set for Tuesday, May 24 with a rain date of Friday, May 27.  As students will be outside more, preparing for the T & F events, sun screen is a must. Please be sure to send sun screen with them or apply it at home prior to the school day.
