We Are Makers!

Important Reminders

  • All visitors must report to the main office. Please do not go directly to classrooms in order to ensure privacy and safety of all of our students.
  • Yard supervision starts at 9:00 am each morning. Please do not drop your children off before that time.
  • Dismissal is at 3:35 pm. Thank you for waiting on the blue stairs for your children who will meet you after that time. Please make every effort not to pick your child up early from school as this disrupts the learning for all.
  • The lane in front of the school is a fire lane. There is no parking/stopping in this area. Please pull up to the painted yellow areas (nearest the back yard) in the main parking lot if you wish to drop off your children.
  • Please report absences on the attendance line: 1-855-257-9349

Thank you for helping to keep our students safe!

Lest We Forget

Our School Learning Plan

Teaching is a profession that continuously evolves and as a staff, we continue to focus on ensuring that we are meeting the needs of all students by using the most effective instructional strategies. On the September and October PA Days, we reviewed and analyzed student achievement data (EQAO and classroom-based assessment data, school climate survey data and other sources of information) in order to revise our School Learning Plan. Our focus is on the whole child and our goals align with the pillars of Wellness, Innovation and Collaboration. Time was also allocated to review important health and safety practices and other required training such as Progressive Discipline practices, Anaphylaxis training and Ryan’s Law (Asthma). We will continue to focus on our school goals on the PA Day in November as well as at Staff Meetings throughout the year.
