Parkview Happenings…

Thank you to our many families that joined us for our Amazing Race Math Night! What a great success… lots of learning and lots of fun! Special appreciation to our staff for the planning and organizing of a great evening.

EQAO will begin this week for our grade 3 and 6 students. We would like to remind our families of the importance of getting a good night’s rest and eating breakfast in the morning. We ask that parents try to avoid any appointments in this coming week so as not to miss any of the assessments. Thank you.

A cautionary note to all families – on Monday and Tuesday of this week, the City of Markham will be rebuilding the gate between our parking lot and the main street parking. There will be a construction fence and City of Markham staff appointed to support safety. As a school, we will also have additional staff in that area to support student safety. The access to the school from that area will be closed, and therefore those of you that normally walk through there will need to find an alternate route. We ask all of our families to exercise caution in this area as the construction is happening.

Our Intermediate students are hosting the Water Docs Film Festival on May 30th. We look forward to welcoming our Intermediate families, members of our community and board, as well as director Kai Reimer Watts.

Reminder to all Parkview families that Monday, June 3rd is a PA Day. There is no school for students.

School Council will be hosting our second Chapters evening on June 18th. Mark your calendars! More details to come.

Safety Reminders: (1) Students should not arrive at school earlier then 8:15am as teacher supervision begins at 8:15am. (2) Any changes to end of day dismissal must be provided to the office and classroom teacher in writing. (3) The school parking lot is for staff members only. In order to ensure safety of students, we ask that you please refrain from parking in this lot. (4) Please do not sent any nut products to school, for snack or lunch, as we strive to be a nut-safe environment.

A gentle reminder to any families that will be transferring to the French Immersion program, or moving out of the area, to please notify the office as soon as possible. Thank you.
