Spring is finally here and with it lots of activity at the school. Read on for more details!
The School Lunch and Snack program urgently needs volunteer assistance: especially on Monday mornings to help with serving and clean up. Please sign up on our Volunteer Sign Up form
Gardening: Ms. Iliadas and Ms.Castellanos joined us at School Council this week as the new Chairs for the Early Years/Primary and Junior/Intermediate divisions. Welcome! Ms. Castellanos and the grade 7 and 8 students celebrated Earth Day with a yard clean up on and the addition of a planter filled with pansies. The students will continue to maintain and add to the gardens for the rest of the school year. Donations are welcomed and needed to assist with this undertaking. Please donate Canadian Tire money to the office for the purchase of plants and seeds. If you are at a garden centre, or are separating perennials in your garden, donations of perennials are also welcome.
Volunteers: The School Council depends on parents and guardians (and local high school students) volunteering their time. The Spring Festival on June 2nd needs volunteers from 2:00 onward, please sign up below. We promise there will be no auto generated emails, just an email from one of the existing volunteers with an assignment for you prior to the Festival! We have one central Volunteer Sign Up form (the form is so nice we’re posting it twice).
Pupil Accommodation Review: We wrote about the Pupil Accommodation Review a few months ago in our February 29 blog post. The TDSB is hosting another public meeting regarding their recommendations for the local high schools and planning priorities. The meeting is Tuesday May 3 at 7:00 at Danforth CTI, 800 Greenwood Ave. Please click on this link for full details: TDSB letter
Bottle Drive, Part 2: The January Bottle Drive presented a way for School Council to raise $500 without a cost to parents and guardians. It was so successful we are hosting a second drive. Date and location TBA but we are hoping for the weekend following the May long weekend. Start saving those wine, beer and liquor containers now! (cans and tetrapaks also accepted).
