The Culture of Compassion Presents: Parkview Toy Sale
It’s that time of year again!!! It’s time for the Parkview P.S. Toy Drive. During the week of December 8-12, the Culture of Compassion Club will be hosting a Toy Sale during morning recesses for charity. This is your opportunity to buy toys that are new to you and donate at the same time to help someone else in need. All proceeds will be forwarded to the Free The Children organization to pay for children’s education in Africa. To help us organize for the event, all of this week and next week we will be accepting any new or gently used toys you might have so that they can be used in the Toy Drive. Donations can be dropped off in boxes provided in the front foyer. Thanks in advance for your help. Toys can bring joys; We are the world; So LET’S GET GIVING!!!

Message From Our Trustee
It is that time of year when our schools brim with energy and excitement for the many diverse celebrations taking place across our region. I am always happy to join the festivities happening in our schools and appreciate the efforts of our students, staff and community members to bring the holiday season alive.

As we wind down 2015, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents and guardians for their support of our students and staff over the past few months. A school community is only as strong and welcoming as the people who make up that community. Our students, staff and community members have continued to demonstrate respect, character and commitment in their work and interactions over the last few months. As a trustee, I consider myself very fortunate to work with such supportive community and staff members.

On behalf of all of the trustees and staff of the York Region District School Board, I would like to wish you and your families a very happy holiday season.

All the best for 2016!
Billy Pang
