School Reorganization

Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we are working through our school class reorganization process.  We will email all families where changes affect you on Tuesday.  We are working to minimize changes and transitions so that your children experience the least disruption possible.  

We have been given another homeroom to grow and so this allows us to reduce some classes in size.  Teachers have worked hard this week to ensure that any moves are in the best interest of your child’s learning and taking into account factors such as friendships. 

All changes will be effective for Wednesday September 27. 

School Start Up Forms

School start up forms are to be completed by clicking on this link.  All students must have this completed.  Please click this link to fill out the forms.  You will need your child’s student number (Google Apps login) and password.

Families are also encouraged to review the online Guide to the School Year


Due to overflow situations on some of our bus routes, Student Transportation is making changes to afternoon (PM) routes.  Please check for updates regularly!

The following routes are affected starting Wednesday, Sept 27

PM Route 7229 - stop: 50 Bodrington Crt - Route 7059 - stop time 3:25pm

PM Route 7228 - stop: 89 South Town Centre Blvd - Route 7059 - stop time 3:19pm

PM Route 6344 - stop: Main St (Unionville) & East Dr (S/W Crnr) - Route 7059 - stop time 3:13pm

Terry Fox Run

We are excited to announce that our school will be proudly taking part in the 2023 Terry Fox School Event. Let’s all use Terry’s message of hope and strength to inspire us.

Classes will be going outside on Tuesday, September 26th to safely participate in an activity to commemorate the 44th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.

Please see the attachment for details and how you can donate to the Terry Fox Foundation for Cancer research

Our fundraising goal is $3156

Meet the Teacher Night

Wednesday October 4, 2023 will be “Meet the Teacher Night.”  This casual, drop in session will run from 6pm to 7pm.  This is an opportunity for you to see your child’s classroom and meet their homeroom teacher.  Please note that this is not a time for personal/private parent/teacher conferences.  These will be held November 16 & 17.

If your child’s teacher has a specific format for the evening they will reach out to you.  However the plan is for us to do a drop in to visit.

There will also be a Scholastic Book Fair running in the library Oct 4 - if you wish to purchase books for your child and support the school through this book fair, please come and see and buy some great books for your child to read. Book fair will be open for students to see throughout the week.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

This year the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation takes place on Saturday, September 30.  To commemorate the day, we are holding Orange Shirt day on Friday, September 29.  

School Council

We would like to invite you to our first school council meeting, taking place October 12, 2023, starting at 6:30pm.

Lunch Assistants needed

We can always use more lunch helpers!  If you or an adult (18+) are available to help from 12:20-1:20 please contact Mr. Ko ( We can use volunteers or paid lunch helpers.  Duties would include helping children open lunch containers, ensuring people are seated and eating, and watching children while on recess.  

Not Feeling Well?

We must continue to do COVID-19 Daily screening.  If your child is not feeling well, they must stay home. Please follow all public health guidelines.  We will call caregivers of children with new symptoms or if they are not feeling well to come and pickup the child.
