tfoodletterr

We have received this letter of appreciation from the Thornhill Christmas Assistance Program, thanking us for our Fall food drive effort in support of local families in need.  Inasmuch as this acknowledgement was sent to the school, the real thanks go out to you.

We happily share this letter with you, and extend our own thanks to our students and staff for supporting this worthwhile campaign, and of course, our generous Bayview Glen P.S. community.

Great job Bayview Glen P.S.!

Don’t Forget … Beach Day ahead!

Our Student Leadership Team wants to remind everyone that tomorrow (Thursday, January 17th) is Beach Day!

Please help spread some much needed sunshine!   Wear sunglasses and sun hats … bring towels, sand toys and a beach ball … and most of all, bring your smiles!  Students can even bring in flip flops or Crocs for photographs, but we’d ask they still have regular indoor and outdoor shoes, too.  Let’s bring some warmth back to the Winter!

Kindergarten Registration for 2019-2020

Kindergarten registration for September 2019 begins January 18 for the 2019-20 school year.  This year, our school is excited to be one of the pilot schools in the Board offering online registration for Kindergarten.  Children who turn four or five years old during 2019, live within the school boundary and whose parents are public school tax supporters will be eligible to register for Kindergarten.

If you, or someone you know, is registering a child for Kindergarten at our school, you can access the online registration information at bit.ly/KindergartenYRDSB. Please note that for this pilot, a laptop or desktop computer is strongly recommended, rather than a mobile device.

Families are still welcome to register in person in the school office.  Registration forms are available on the Board’s website at www.yrdsb.ca.
