June 27-29 Last Week of School! (Updated)

Dear Parkview Pulse readers, Please see our updated newsletter including the date of the junior Water Park visit. 

We frequently post changes & updates to our weekly newsletter that may not get emailed out. Please always check our website, parkviewpulse.org for the most current and up to date edition!

Early Release Dayimgres
All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being.  On Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day.  These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 only.  Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:30am.  Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time.  Parents/guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.

Ice Cream Sandwich Treat on the Last Dayice_cream_sandwich-1
Our Healthy Snack Parent team has done an amazing job this year ensuring all our students have access to snacks whenever they need a little extra energy to get them through the day.  As a special last day treat they will be providing every student in the school with an ice-cream sandwich on Wednesday.  We recognize that some students may have allergies or dietary restrictions that will prevent them from enjoying the snack.  If this is the case please make sure your child and/or homeroom teacher is aware.  As an alternative there will be some freezies available as well. Thank you to the parent volunteers that make this program possible!
