Hullabaloo Update
The Hullabaloo was an incredible success again this year.  We surpassed our goal and raised $8939.  That’s $2000 more than last year.  Thanks to everyone who supported the event.  The funds will be allocated later this year, so keep an eye on future school council agendas if you’d like to take part in the discussions. Special thanks to Chris and Stephanie for leading the charge and their dedicated committee members who worked so hard to run the event.

Monarch Park Aquatics
This aquatics program is facing termination if more folks don’t use the pool.  Take a quick look at the schedule and let’s see if we can boost attendance.

The temperature is dropping! Let’s make sure the kids are warm and dry.  Please be sure to send snowpants, warm boots and mittens.  Click here to see the TDSB winter weather guidelines that show when recess will be indoors.

Special Education Support
People for Education has released a second video for parents, focusing on special education. This four minute video—generously funded by the RBC Foundation—provides an overview of the steps parents can take if they think their child may need special education.
