Message from Our Trustee

As we near the end of the school year, this is a good time to celebrate your child’s learning and achievements throughout the year. Supporting the growth of our students is a partnership with families and communities, and I want to thank you for all that you do to help strengthen our schools and support your child’s education.

Over these past months, I’ve had the chance to meet many of you at our events, join you at school councils and listen to your ideas and input. I look forward to continuing to build relationships with families over the summer months and in the 2019-2020 school year. As we go into the summer, I invite you to explore the many summer learning programs we offer for our students. I hope that whatever you have planned, you have a safe and enjoyable summer.

I would also like to offer a special congratulations to the graduating class of 2019. We wish you all the very best as you embark on this exciting new chapter in your lives. We look forward to welcoming back all of our new and returning families in the fall.

David Sherman
Trustee, Markham Ward 1 – Vaughan Ward 5

Early Release Day

All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being. On Thursday, June 27, 2019 an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day. These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 27, 2019 only. Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:30 a.m. Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time. Parents and guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office.

Spirit Day Ahead!
