With program registration now open, flyers are available for In the Mix Hip Hop (Mondays, Grades 1-6), Bryst Soccer Jr. (Tuesdays, Grades 1-3), Mad Science Brixology (Wednesdays, Grade 1-6), Bryst Soccer Sr. (Thursdays, Grades 4-6) and Created By Me Art (Fridays, Grades 1-6).

So don’t delay and register today … before it’s too late!  We thank our School Council for their efforts in planning for these programs.

In case you missed it … we helped build a Toy Mountain!

 

We wanted to extend our thanks to Bayview Glen P.S. community for its incredible holiday spirit and generosity … our school donated boxes upon boxes of children’s toys last night to the Toy Mountain campaign!  We’d like to thank all the thoughtful families who contributed to this year’s initiative.  There will be many smiling faces this holiday season thanks to your efforts.  All of Bayview Glen P.S. deserves a Royal Roar!

We’d also like to thank all the students and family members who came our last night to participate in the live-on-air Toy Mountain event at the Pride of Canada Carousel with CTV’s weather anchor, Tom Brown.  We hope you enjoyed the musical performances, skating, beaver tails and hot chocolate!  Bayview Glen P.S. not only demonstrated its goodwill, but its amazing enthusiasm and school spirit, as well.  There is a short recap of some of the coverage above.

Happy Holidays!

Kindergarten Registration for 2020-2021

Kindergarten registration for September 2020 begins January 17, 2020 for the 2020-21 school year.  Our school will continue to offer online registration for Kindergarten for those families that wish.  Children who turn four or five years old during 2020, 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 will be able to access the online registration information beginning January 17, 2020 at bit.ly/KindergartenYRDSB. Please note that for online registration, 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.

Spirit Day Ahead

Pajama Day

Our Student Leadership Team wants to share with everyone that our next Spirit Day of the year will be held next week.  They officially declare Thursday, December 19th Pajama Day!

All staff and students are invited to wear their finest sleepwear!  Come to school in your comfiest pajamas and bring along your favourite plush or stuffed animal.  Let’s show off our Bayview Glen P.S. Spirit!

Toy Mountain is Next Week!

Thank you to everyone in the Bayview Glen P.S. community who donated a toy in support of Toy Mountain, a program in conjunction with CTV and the Salvation Army, which distributes gifts to children in need.  We’ve now managed to collect over 100 toys!  Families can still drop off new, unwrapped toys to the school office until Tuesday.

As well, all families are invited on Tuesday, December 17th 2019 starting at 5:00 p.m. to the Pride of Canada Carousel (8080 Birchmount Road, Markham) where our Toy Mountain will be donated, and where CTV Weather Anchor Tom Brown will broadcast the event live during CTV Toronto’s News beginning at 6:00 p.m.  There are live performances scheduled, the skating rink will be in operation (weather dependent), there will be carousel rides, BeaverTails, and hot chocolate!

It would be great to have a contingent of Bayview Glen P.S. students showing support and maybe we could even get on to the news broadcast, so we encourage our community to come out and join the celebration!  The broadcast will be outdoors, so if you’re attending, be sure to bundle up!

Help us build a mountain of good cheer for children in need this holiday season … one toy at a time.

An Important Spirit Wear Update and Reminder!

SpirtWearBlog

We want to remind our school community that there’s one week left to order Bayview Glen P.S. Spirit Wear items such as  baseball shirts, t-shirts, zip-ups, hoodies, sweatshirts and toques.  We want to see our students, staff and community show off their school spirit with some amazing BGPS Gear!

An important note: The posting on SchoolCash online incorrectly identifies the Black and Navy Vinyl Logo Hooded Sweatshirt as ‘Full Zip w/Pocket’.  The Black and Navy Vinyl Logo Hooded Sweatshirts (priced at $24 for youth sizing or $28 for adult sizing) do not have a zipper or pocket.  The Black and Athletic Grey Sweatshirts are full zip with pocket (priced at $29 youth sizing or $32 for adult sizing) and have an embroidered breast logo.  Unfortunately, we are unable to update our SchoolCash posting once it’s active so the listing still reads incorrectly.  We sincerely apologize for any confusion this may have caused.  If you wish to change your order, please contact the school office before December 19th and we’re more than happy to help.

Items are made specific to our school’s order and cannot be exchanged.  We invite and encourage our parents and students to visit the school office during regular office hours to look at actual product samples for the purposes of sizing correctly.  (Depictions above are renderings and may vary from the final product.)  As well, sizing will be available for parents to see after the Winter Concerts on Wednesday, December 18th.

Items will be available for order on SchoolCash until 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 19th 2019.  (Please note, no late orders can be processed.)  Items will be distributed early in the New Year.

Treat yourself and slip in to some Bayview Glen P.S. Spirit Wear!
