Reminder: School Council Meeting


The next School Council Meeting is Tuesday April 1.


Food Allergies

There are children in our school with severe life-threatening food allergies.

These children are allergic to:

  • peanuts and other nuts
  • eggs
  • fish
  • seeds and foods containing seeds (eg. kiwi, raspberry)

This condition is called anaphylaxis (ana-fill-axis). This is a medical condition that causes a severe reaction to specific foods or other materials and can result in death within minutes. Although peanuts and peanut products are the most common foods to cause anaphylaxis, shellfish, fish, eggs, sulphites, milk, sesame seeds, soy or any other food can cause this dangerous condition. In recent years, anaphylaxis has increased dramatically among students.

Although this may or may not affect your child’s class directly, we want to inform you so that you may choose to send foods to school with your child that are free from the food items identified above.

The Board has procedures for the prevention and management of anaphylactic reactions. If you are interested, contact the school office for more information. Further information is also available through Anaphylaxis Canada, (416) 785-5666.

If your child has health problems of any kind, please inform your child’s teacher or office staff immediately so that the necessary health protection steps may be taken.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in ensuring the safest environment possible for our students.

Our annual Dance-a-thon fundraiser will be held on February 14 for a special Valentine’s Day!

The class that raises the most pledges will be treated to Pizza!

Pledge/permission forms went home on Monday, January 27th.

Thank you to John (Olivia’s Dad) for donating lights and organizing the DJ for us – much appreciated!

We will have black lights, which means, if your child wears white he/she will glow in the dark.

Dance-a-thon pledges and forms are due in the office by February 10th.

Thank you Joanna Keown!

Once again, thank you to Joanna Keown for organizing the KnitWits fundraiser and thanks to everyone for their patience with the back-orders.

Congratulations to Room 18 – they won a pizza lunch!

Kindergarten Registration for In-district Families for September 2014

Kindergarten registration for families living in our district will take place on February 3rd.

If your child was born in 2010 and you live in our district, please phone the school to make an appointment to register. You will need to bring the following documents:

  • 2 proofs of address (driver’s license, phone/cable/utility bill, tax form, rental lease, bank statement)
  • Child’s birth certificate or passport
  • Child’s immunization record 
  • Child’s health card 

If sufficient space is available at OOOPS after we have held our in-district registration, out-of-district families will have the opportunity to register their children at OOOPS, provided they have completed an Optional Attendance Form (available at your home school office) and submitted it to us no later than February 14, 2014. If requests exceed the spaces available, students will be admitted by a lottery subject to admission priorities. The school will then contact out-of-district families to make an appointment to register on April 9, 10 and 11.
