Ordering Student Photos

The Edge Imaging asked us to share with our community the following message:

Your child’s photos from your recent photo day are currently being processed in our Canadian lab, and will be ready to view soon. In the meanwhile, we wanted to let you know that your school has been hand-picked to be part of our exciting, environmentally-friendly initiative for ordering school photos!

We’re saving trees and your memories this year by switching to online-only ordering for fall photos on our brand-new ordering site optimized for mobile, tablet and desktop experiences.  Visit Edge Imaging online.

By logging in to order online, you’re ensuring your students’ photos are archived on our secure, Canadian servers to be available to you in the future. You’re also helping us reduce waste while unlocking access to innovative specialty products and perks like free shipping on orders over $50! Pretty great, huh?

We recognize that ordering online may not be feasible for everyone. If this is you, please let your school office know as soon as possible that you require a paper order form.

If you have any questions or require assistance with ordering, please give the Edge Imaging customer care team a call at 1-888-416-3343.

Fall Dance and Food Drive

Dancing people silhouettes. Vector work.

We will be having a school-wide Fall Dance this Friday, November 8th featuring Bounce Entertainment.  There is no cost to attend the dance, though we are asking students to bring in non-perishable (mainly food) items to support a local holiday assistance program.  Started by local churches thirty years ago, the program provides a measure of support to Thornhill residents on the basis of need and without consideration of religious belief or practice.  This program gives assistance to local residents specifically, so your donation will be helping someone in our own greater community.

Among the items appropriate to donate include any unopened (a) canned food items such as meat, fish, soups, fruit, vegetables, juices, pasta sauces, etc., (b) dry items such as cereals hot & cold, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, biscuits, crackers, cookies, cake mixes, pancake mixes, soup mixes, pudding and jello powders, etc., (c) toiletry items such as hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, disposable shavers, hair shampoos, paper hand towels, hair creams, cosmetics, etc., (d) Kraft dinners and all types of pasta, (e) glass items such as pickles, sauces, jams, relishes, salad dressings, etc., and (f) baby diapers and formula.

We will collect items during the first week of November and throughout the remainder of the month; items can be sent to school with your child or dropped off in the school foyer, at your convenience.

Together we can work to help local families in need!
