Principal's Message

Dear Families:


At Silver Pines, we strive to foster a learning environment where people of all ages work and grow together, experience the joy of learning and develop the skills, attitudes and knowledge needed to be life-long learners and respectful, contributing members of society.  We recognize that the pandemic and school closures affected students and families in different ways, and will prioritize the health, safety and well-being  of your child as we support them in transitioning back to school and we are committed to providing a learning environment where everyone feels safe, valued, welcome and respected.

We value the relationships we have with families and look forward to speaking and working with you in the months ahead.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school or your child's teacher if you have any questions.  We welcome the opportunity to connect with you and also invite any new members to join the School Council.

There are other ways to stay connected with what's happending in our school. Be sure to follow us @silverpinesps.  You can also find updated inforamtion about the Board at and Twitter @YRDSB.

Our Silver Pines Touchstone represents who we are as a school at present and what we strive to be moving forward.


At Silver Pines we are one big family. We lift each other up if we fall.

We include everyone and strive to make all members of our community feel safe and welcome.

We are not afraid to stand out and make a difference.

We are kind and caring, treating others the way we want to be treated.

We use our voices to tell the truth and stand up for  what we believe in.

We ask questions, have fun, and think critically and creatively.

We take initiative to care for ourselves and the world around us.

We set academic and social goals and persevere to achieve them, moving forward while learning from the past.

We are a big forest of trees, we grow tall, we grow strong, we grow together…

but branch out in our own way.

Be a leader,

Be a learner,

Have a voice,

And inspire learning!
