Kindergarten Families please note the doors will open at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday December 13th. Please drop your Kindergarten student off at their classroom between 6:00 p.m. and 6:10 p.m. and then go to the gym. The kindergarten performance will begin at 6:15 p.m. An intermission will occur at 6:40 ish. Please come at that time to pick up your child from the classroom. If you have older siblings performing in the grades 1-4 performance, you may bring your kindergarten child into the gym for the remainder of the concert that begins at 7:00 p.m. Thank you in advance for your promptness.

December Trustee Message

Message From Our Trustee

 In November, about 1,000 students, staff members and community partners came together from across the Board to form a Ring of Peace and stand together against hate, discrimination and intolerance. The student speakers at the event shared meaningful messages about the importance of feeling welcome, valued and respected.

At York Region District School Board, we are committed to listening to the voices of our students and communities. We will continue working with our school communities to ensure our schools provide safe, welcoming and inclusive environments for everyone.

Last month, our annual Quest conference brought together educators from across Ontario, Canada and around the world to share, learn and discuss how to foster well-being in schools. Some of the themes covered included equity and inclusivity, and safe and caring environments.

It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about some of the positive things happening in our own schools and other districts. In recent months, we have had several international visitors come to our system and schools to learn more about the work in our system to support student achievement and well-being, including Qatar, the Netherlands, Texas and the United Kingdom.

We are pleased to have these opportunities to continue highlighting and sharing the great things happening in our schools thanks to our outstanding students, staff members, families and community partners. Your engagement makes a difference in our schools and I encourage you to continue getting involved in the life of your child’s school.

As we enter the holiday season, I am once again impressed by the generosity of our school communities and our students’ commitment to helping others.

Best wishes to everyone for a safe and happy holiday season and a wonderful start to 2018.
