Good luck to both our girls and boys volleyball teams this week as they compete in the Area Finals.  The girls will be competing on the 19th and the boys on the 20th.  Both Area Finals will take place at Unionville High School…good luck, Panthers!

Picture Re-Take Day is coming!  We will have our re-take day on Thursday, November 21st.

Please remember to send your child to school every day with appropriate winter clothing for outdoor play. Students spend approximately 60 minutes a day outside. Please label all items with your child’s name on it. Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation! For students to stay warm, here are some suggestions:

  • Winter jacket
  • Winter hat
  • Gloves or mittens
  • Neck warmer or scarf
  • Winter boots
  • Snow pants

In order to ensure student safety at all times please remember the following:

  • Please do not park in the staff parking lot, particularly during entry and dismissal times. This will help ensure student safety.
  • If you are dropping off a lunch for your child, please do not open the front doors to visitors.  Doors can only be opened by office staff in order to ensure student safety at all times.
  • If there is a change in dismissal routines, parents must inform the office.
  • If your child requires an epi pen, they are required to carry their epinephrine auto-injector with them at all times. (YRDSB P& P 662.0) Families may order a free waist pack from

Grade 3 Gifted Screening will take place the week of November 25th. If your child qualifies for Stage Two, you will receive a ‘Consent for Intellectual Screening’ form in January 2020. If you do not receive a consent form that means your child is not moving on to Stage Two. We have sent home a letter outlining the timing and details of administration – please refer to this letter for additional information.
