Parent Presentation: Emotional Regulation in Children from Birth to Teens

We’d like to invite all parents and guardians in the Bayview Glen P.S. community to a free presentation, Simple Gift: Emotional Regulation for Parents of Children from Birth to Teen.  This session will provide parents with information about:

  • What is emotional regulation,
  • Long term implications of negative emotions,
  • The importance of learning about your child’s unique temperament, strengths and areas of improvement,
  • Triggers that set off emotions, and
  • The 8 principles of emotional regulation and how you can teach your child to identify and cope with their feelings

This free parent presentation will be held at Bayview Glen Public School on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.  This presentation is brought to you by the school in partnership with York Hills Centre for Children, Youth and Families and York Region District School Board.  For more details, please see the flyer.

We Need Your Help!


We have a committee of dedicated parent volunteers on School Council organizing fabulous prizes (and more prizes keep coming) …

We have staff and students busily planning for our Winter Wonderland Celebration …

We have our leadership team working on announcements and advertisements …

 But what we need most of all are donations.

Winter Wonderland is our annual—and really our only—school-wide fundraiser and it is very important.  It is our primary source of funds beyond the school board which enable us to enrich our school with a wide range of enhancements.  Tablets in our early primary classes, Chromebooks across the school, STEM technologies in our Library Learning Commons, athletic uniforms for our school teams, building an outdoor classroom, community events—among others areas, are all supported by our fundraising.  When you contribute to our fundraiser, you invest in our school for the benefit of your children … and all our students.

We gratefully thank all those who’ve made donations thus far, and thank those in advance who have yet to, but will.  Together, we can continue to make Bayview Glen P.S. the great school that it is.

As a reminder, For every $10 donated, students will be issued a ticket which they will place into a draw to win a prize.  The more money the student raises, the more tickets he or she accumulates giving them more chances to win!  (In the interest of maximizing the number of winners, students are limited to winning only one prize each.)  And we have some amazing prizes, including: Raptors Tickets, Oculus Go VR Goggles, a Galaxy Tablet, drones, smart speakers, Lego sets, robotics kits, outdoor games, passes to many local attractions, and much more!

Please help the school and submit all cash and/or cheques inside your child’s Winter Wonderland donation envelope by Friday, February 7th.  We thank you for your generous support of the school!

Novel Coronavirus Information

We wish to share with our school community this letter about the novel coronavirus.  As always, the safety and well-being of our students and staff is our priority and we work closely with York Region public health and will take all their advice in regard to the coronavirus and all other public health related matters.  As well, please find a fact sheet about the coronavirus from Public Health.

Our thanks for your ongoing support.

Last Chance for Lunchtime Soccer!


Still under-subscribed, lunchtime program provider Bryst Soccer (Thursdays, Grades 1-6) offered a trial class last week for students who may have been interested.  If your child participated and you would still like to sign them up, it’s not too late –you can still register them through this Thursday (January 23rd), the date of the next class.

We thank our School Council for their efforts in planning for our lunchtime programs.

It’s Almost Lunar New Year!


On Saturday, January 25th it will be Lunar New Year!  We will recognize Lunar New Year at the school on Friday, January 24th.  We welcome all those who celebrate the holiday to dress up in traditional New Year clothing, if they wish. And we welcome all our students to get into the spirit, even in the absence of traditional clothing, by dressing in red on Friday.  The colour red is thought to symbolize good luck, so please help us usher in the Lunar New Year with some colourful good fortune!
