As the weather turns more spring like, our thoughts turn toward the end of the year. However, before we get too far there are many activities planned and educational opportunities yet to be experienced. The last two months include EQAO, track & field, ultimate frisbee, special school visits, trips, School Council’s Ice Cream Social, report cards and Grade 8 graduation. We hope you will join your child in some of the many activities between now and the end of the year.
Be sure to visit the school for our Education Week Open House. On Monday, May 6th, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the school will be open for you to visit your child’s classroom as well as the library for our Scholastic Book Fair. Also appearing will be the School Band. Be sure to stop in!
Grade 3 and Grade 6 EQAO
Grade 3 EQAO testing dates have been set for May 27th to May 31st, while the grade 6 students will be assessed from June 3rd to June 6th. It is expected that the assessment of Reading, Writing and Mathematics will take approximately two hours each day.
