Report Cards and Parent Interviews
Thanks to all parents and guardians who came out to participate in the interview process November 16th and 17th. If you were unable to attend, please contact the office or your child's teacher directly to arrange for alternate appointments in person or by phone. The Term 1 Report Card will be sent home Friday February 9th, 2018.
On Friday November 10 we had our annual Remembrance Day Ceremony. Thanks to all the staff (Mr, Karpenko, Ms. Pang, Ms. Tsai, Mr. Hann, Ms. Guinane, Ms. Belizaire, Ms. Filipova, Ms. Aldcorn, and Ms. Davis) for their excellent work in ensuring our Remembrance Day assembly was meaningful for our students. It takes quite a lot of time and co-ordination to make this happen and we are really proud of what you accomplished.
Students were an excellent audience for this sombre assembly. Speical congratulations to all the students who participated as MC's, band members, and student speakers. Mr. Hann's tech team recorded the whole service, and we hope that will be posted to our YouTube channel soon!
Math Contest Winner - Akshaya is Number 1!
Congratulations to Akshaya Varakkunan a Grade 7 student in class 7/8. She placed first in our school and first in the TDSB in the Caribou Math contest. Not only that, but she placed 29th in the province, 37th in the country and 40th in the world! Well done Akshaya!
Our tech team, under the leadership of Mr. Hann were the DJ’S and were instrumental in ensuring our first dance of the year was a success. We had many students dressed up in fun costumes. You can see some of them on our Instagram account!
Team E.R.I.C. Ultimate Clinic!
We had a great time with the folks from Team ERIC (http://earlyrecognitioniscritical.org/) who ran a clinic for our students over two days on October 4th and 5th. They showed students in all gym classes the basics of Ultimate Frisbee, and they also ran an assembly about the importance of advocating for yourself and your health, particularly when it comes to something feeling not quite right in your body. This important healthy living message really resonated with our students! Please see their parent newsletter for more information, and discuss this important topic with your child! Thanks Team ERIC for your visit! We hope you can come again next year!
Latest Newsletters Available
We have updated our newsletter page. Check out the Digest Newsletter, the November 3rd newsletter, and the Snack Menu for October!
Reminders for Drivers
Please remember that our parking lot is for staff and Board delivery vehicles. Although there is a turn around area, students can easily walk a few metres even on cold days and need not be driven right up to the parking lot door, which is actually off limits to students.
We also ask that you show respect for our neigbours on Evermede by not making U-turns and by not using driveways to turn around. Please just stop, drop off or pick up your child, and continue on in the same direction.
New Website Launched!
After several years of work with students, Mr. Hann has updated the school website! Thanks for all your hard work Mr. Hann.

We are continually working to improve and will fix those as soon as possible.
