We value the ongoing, meaningful communication between the home and school to support student learning. Students learn best when parents and educators work together. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress, we invite you to contact your child’s teacher directly.

Today we launch our fundraising initiative to sponsor a Syrian refugee family in partnership with Givins-Shaw and First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto. Once we are matched with a family, they will provide mentorship to our volunteer team. We will identify a family here with relatives who are Syrian refugees. This process takes approximately 6-9 months.
If you would like to participate in our school initiative, please go to our campaign page 1000schools.ca/OOOPS.
We are going to be holding a popcorn sale on Tuesday November 24 to involve the children in the fundraising effort. All bags will be $2. As well Dewson is working on an educational component to be shared with teachers and parents.
Here are two videos of Angelina Jolie-Pitt visiting Syrian children in a refugee camp in Lebanon, in 2014 and then one year later.
