Milk Program

Thank you to all the parents who supported our milk program now that it is up and running. We especially appreciate the great support for using School Cash Online! A reminder that the milk program begins on Monday.

Progress Reports and Parent/Teacher Interviews

This Friday, all students in Kindergarten will be receiving a Key Learning report, and students in Grades 1 - 6 will be receiving Progress Reports. This is not an evaluation (like a report card) but a chance to check in with you about your child's progress to date. Included with your child's Key Learning/Progress Report will be your interview time. We look forward to connecting with you over the next few weeks to share the celebrations and next steps for each of your children.


Did you know....that all students at Kawartha Heights will be starting new learning about Measurement this upcoming week! Take a minute to ask them what they are learning....and check out our Twitter feed for some great Bedtime Math ideas you can do as a family.

Just one more thing.....

At Kawartha Heights we practice a mindfulness moment or two each morning. This is a great way to start our day and sets us all (students and adults!) up for success. Have you thought about having some mindfulness time at home? It's a great way to get ready for bed. A great site for some guided relaxation scripts (that you can read to your children) is: Also check out the grounding tips below!
