Parkview Junior Coding Club and Intermediate Robotics Team

Parkview is very excited to announce our participation in the YRDSB Hour of Code. Our coding club will start on Monday November 23 during the lunch hour and will be open to all students in grade 4, 5, and 6 interested in this opportunity. Thank you to Ms. O’Yazdi and Ms. Prasad for taking on this initiative!

In addition to the Junior coding club our intermediate students will be offered a chance to join our very first Parkview Robotics Team. Ms. Kemp, Ms. Birtch and Ms. Rae Vair will be meeting in the next couple of weeks to discuss the details.

Since the equipment needed to run both the coding club and the Robotic teams is limited, students who join will be expected to attend consistently and show appropriate collaboration skills.

Gifted Screening 2015-2016

The York Region District School Board (click here for parent letter) offers the opportunity for all students in grade three to participate in system wide screening for possible identification as a Gifted student. Stage One of the screening will take place between December 8th and December 9th, 2015. The students will be given the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT) a test of thinking and reasoning skills. Each student will complete the test at the same time as their classmates, and will be supervised by a teacher. Students who meet the YRDSB intellectual criterion on the individual screening will be contacted for participation in stage 2 screening.

If you do NOT want your child to participate in Stage One of the gifted screening process please inform your child’s teacher in writing by December 4th, 2015.


A friendly reminder to advise families that Bag2School collection will be Nov 23 – 27. All bags can be dropped off in the lobby of the school. If you require more information, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.
