Every Child. Every Chance. Every Day.
Our Annual Terry Fox Run will take place on Friday, September 12th. We will be running the same route as last year through the neighborhood. Students will begin running at approximately 9:15am and finish at about 10:15am. Feel free to come out and cheer our students on!
Students are asked to bring in a “Toonie for Terry” by Friday to help in the fight against Cancer.
“One characteristic emerged as a significant predictor of success. And it wasn’t social intelligence. It wasn’t good looks, physical health, and it wasn’t IQ.
It was grit.”
“Grit” is the ability to persevere in the face of difficulty. It is understanding the difference between “failing” and “Failing at your first attempt”. We try to get students to change their mindset from “I can’t do it” to “I can’t do it – YET”. The great thing about Grit is that you can develop it over time. How can you help your child develop Grit? Here are some sites to help:
8:55 AM Yard Supervision
9:05 Am Entry Bell
10:45 – 11:25 First Nutrition Break
1:05 – 1:55 Second Nutrition Break
3:35 PM Dismissal
We would like to see students returning home promptly after the 3:35 bell as there is no yard supervision after 3:50 pm.
It was wonderful to see all of the smiling faces this week. And, even though the rain didn’t completely hold off, we got off to an awesome start! Classes are settling in and getting down to business and our yard is full of excitement.
Just a reminder that classes are not considered final until after September 22nd.

From Monday, May 26 to Monday June 2nd, the Grade 3s and the Grade 6s will be doing their EQAO testing at Mapleview Heights Public School. Time and classroom resources have been put aside for this special event.
EQAO – or the Education Quality and Accountability Office – is an independent agency of the Ontario government. Its provincial assessment program for primary, junior and secondary students provides parents, teachers and the public with information about student achievement that will help improve teaching and learning.
EQAO assesses all students in Grade 3 and Grade 6 in reading, writing and mathematics. View “A Parent’s Guide to EQAO Tests.”
Parents are requested that students especially in those grades come to school each and every day, and on time so they don’t interrupt others doing the test and they themselves don’t miss out. It’s also a good idea that students have had plenty of sleep the nights before testing and a good breakfast so they can do their best on these tests.
