Just a reminder that the next Council meeting is on Wednesday, November 29th, 6-7pm, in the school library.  As always, there will be childcare and a light meal provided.

We plan to discuss and accept volunteers for the Playground Fundraising Committee and hope to rally troops for the Holiday Luncheon.  We’ll hear an update from Principal Marsh and take suggestions for fun winter initiatives (ie charity drives, family skating) and fundraising opportunities.

We hope to see you there!

Our lovely friends at the Garrison Creek Daycare have been busy hanging up costumes for the wildly popular annual Halloween Swap.

Bring in a clean, gently used costume and trade it for another. We are the one-stop-drop-off-and-shop destination for all of your Halloween costume needs!

Halloween Bake Sale

D839ED31-4816-4A06-B9C8-DCCC71573F67

One of our School Council parents, Linda, has decided to organize a Bake Sale with a spooky Halloween theme.

It will be held on Friday October 27th over the lunch period, afternoon recess and after school in the main foyer.

Whether you can find the time to make a few cupcakes or pick up a tray of store bought cookies, you will help raise funds for the School.

 

Bring your creepy creations in on the Friday morning and drop them off in the teachers’ lounge by the office, or in the Drop-In Centre on the main floor across from Room 2.  Just remember that all treats should be nut-free.

Don’t forget to label your containers!

Thank you!

Making Sense of Math

Trustee Ausma Malik and the TDSB Ward 10 Council is pleased to invite you to a special Ward Council Meeting – Making Sense of Math on Thursday October 19th from 6pm – 8pm at Dewson Street Public School, 65 Concord Ave.

The keynote speaker is Professor Trevor Brown, who will answer the questions “why is math being taught the way it is today?” and “how can we help our kids succeed in math in a fun and engaging way”.

Child care is provided and refreshments will be served.

Datenight Play Date

Datenight Babysitting is going to have a few babysitters in Stanley Park North to oversee recess-style play between 1 and 4 PM for the next two Sundays – Oct 15 and 22.

This is not a structured program but a step towards kids going to the park by themselves. Parents will check their kids in with a Datenight Babysitter when they arrive at the park, and the babysitters will watch over them as they play.  The idea is that kids get to play at the park with their friends while their parents can pool together resources to access affordable child care and get a few hours to themselves.

Kids must be 5 or older to participate.  Save your kids a spot and get your tickets now!  Play Date Tickets
