Festive Feast!

Next week we’ll be having our favourite annual event at the school – The Holiday Luncheon!  On Thursday December 21st, the kids will all celebrate the season with a festive lunch and fancy dessert.


This year we are trying to be a bit more environmentally conscious and are asking that children bring their re-useable drinking bottles with them if possible. Thanks!


Niagara Winter Concert!

The annual Niagara Winter Concert will be held on Tuesday, December 12!

The kindergarten children will take the stage at 5:30pm.  The grade students will have their performance at 6:30pm.  Both productions will take place in the gymnasium.

This year we are requesting donations of non-perishable food items for our food drive going to the Parkdale Food Bank which we are doing in association with the the Toronto Police Service , 14th Division.

Nutcracker Performance

Tickets for the 2017 Pia Bouman Nutcracker are now on sale!

Come and see the longest running Nutcracker in the City and the only one performed entirely by children.

This performance is the Pia Bouman’s School for Ballet and Creative Movement’s main fundraiser in support of the school’s bursary program. Buying tickets would make a wonderful gift – a lovely holiday experience to share with loved ones.  But it would also help give children the opportunity to experience the gift of dance and performance, regardless of financial means.

Performance Dates:
Friday, December 15 at 7:30​ ​pm
Saturday December 16 at 1:30​ pm​
Saturday December 1​6 ​​at 7:30​ ​pm
Sunday December 17 at 1:30​ ​pm

School Council Meeting


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!

Halloween Swap is Baa-aack!


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


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!
