School Life

Agenda Books

In an effort to save costs for families, we are trying new agenda styles.  Kindergarten students do not have agendas, they have communication bags.  Grade 1-6 students will be provided with an agenda.  Homework and important notes will come home in the agenda, which will be used as a communication tool between teachers, parents and students.  The cost for the agendas is $5.00.

Athletics

Students are involved in daily physical activity and school teams that include; soccer, volleyball, basketball, cross country running, softball, track and field. For more information please see our Clubs and Sports page.

Attendance Expectations

Punctuality and regular attendance on the part of the student is important to the process of learning. Both the individual student and his or her classmates may be impacted as a result of this issue. Parents will be contacted when late attendance and punctuality become a concern. Board attendance counsellors will be involved if attendance and punctuality do not improve after parent contact has been made by the school.

When your child is going to be absent from school, for any reason, please contact the school at 905- 443-5512, available 24/7.

Dress Code

Appropriate Dress At School:  Students are to review the school dress code when choosing what to wear to school.  No tank tops, spaghetti straps, or visible underclothes are to be worn.  Low-cut jeans and short shirts that reveal the midriff are not permitted either.  Skirts and shorts are to be of mid-thigh length.  Clothing is not to have inappropriate slogans or messages.  Students are expected to dress in an appropriate manner while at school or representing the school on excursions.  The appropriateness of a student's dress at school is ultimately determined by the School Administration and Teaching Staff.

Shoes:  For safety reasons when playing on the school year, students should be wearing running shoes or sandals that can be buckled securely to the feet.  Flip-flops and crocs do not provide adequate protection and should not be worn at school.
