Hands Across the Nations is an organization that is committed to changing lives in a
practical way. Considering their mission, the Parkview community is encouraged to
donate used eyeglasses for those in need of eyewear. This is an opportunity for early
spring cleaning, so please check for any prescription glasses that are no longer being
used, as they may help improve the sight of another child or adult. Please deliver all
donations to the Main Office. Thank you, in advance, for making such a beneficial
difference in the lives of others.

It’s time to remind children about being safe in our community – It’s a good time for parents to remind children about personal safety. For more information on this subject, visit the York Regional Police website.

Safety Reminder: Please inform the school if there are any changes to your child(ren)’s dismissal routines.
