After School Language Classes

On Thurs Sept 14, the International Languages Office will be at Niagara to take registrations starting at 3:30pm. They usually set up a table by the front entrance or upstairs by the office. Registration forms will be available and in order to complete the paperwork, please remember to bring your child’s OHIP and Ontario Enrolment Number (OEN found on progress reports and report cards – only for grade students).

This year we will have Mandarin, Portuguese and Spanish classes offered on Thursdays after school, 3:30pm-6pm, at a cost of $20 for the year.  Classes begin on September 21st. Don’t worry if you can’t make the date to register. You can enroll online at any point during the school year.



Happy Canada Day!!


It’ll be a pretty big birthday party for Canada tomorrow. 150 years in the making! How will you celebrate?

There will be entertainment, art workshops, and an artisan market at the Harbourfront Centre.

The Royal Ontario Museum is offering free admission to all visitors 10am-5pm.  Note that admission prices for Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story will still be in effect.

Check out the Redpath Waterfront Festival to see the world’s largest rubber duck and enjoy live entertainment and food at the artisan market.

Take in a free Canada Day concert at Humber Bay Park.  And why not bike there?  Bike Pirates will guide a group riding from Trinity Bellwoods to Humber Bay Park West starting at 3 pm.

Consider Evergreen Brickworks, from 11 am – 5 pm, for Canada Day celebrations with craft beer from Great Lakes Brewery, and food from a variety of vendors.

Visit Nathan Phillips Square from June 30 to July 3 for free concerts showcasing Canadian musicians.

And the candles on the birthday cake?  Fireworks of course!

Last Day Pizza Lunch

Just a reminder that tomorrow is our annual Pizza in the Playground!

The weather does not seem to want to cooperate so it will be ‘Pizza in the Lunchroom’ instead!  Yay!  The JK/SK kids will keep to tradition and have pizza in their classrooms.

The School Council will provide pizza, freezies and bottles of water for a pizza party to celebrate the last day of school. So don’t forget to NOT pack the lunches tomorrow. (Maybe just an umbrella!)

Book Sale – Friday!


There will be a book sale at the school this Friday, June 23, during the lunch hour and after school. Some of the gently used books from the Spring Fling book table will be up for grabs and this is your last opportunity to buy them up – all books priced between $0.50-1.00!  All proceeds will go to Daycare and School extra- curricular programming and support.
