Last Call for Cookies! And Books! Plus, Meeting TONIGHT

Hi St Brigid Families,

Just a quick reminder that today (Feb 24th) is the LAST DAY to make Terra Cotta Cookies purchases.  For those of you who are short on freezer space, there is an “already baked” shortbread option in addition to the frozen cookie dough.  Orders can be picked up on March 10th after school/daycare, or you can send us an email to make alternate arrangements (stbrigidcsac@gmail.com).  Place your order by clicking here, then “Start Shopping”. 

Or, consider a donation where 100% will go towards educational items for our kids/their classes, and you get a charitable receipt!  Click here for that.

… and don’t forget that the Scholastic book fair also ends tomorrow!

There is also a parent council meeting via Zoom tonight.  Click here to sign up for a link to that.

St Brigid Pride Flag Raising

The St. Brigid CSPC is excited to share photos from this morning’s Pride Flag raising at the school! For the first time in TCDSB history we are celebrating Pride Month – The Pride Flag is being raised at schools across Toronto to celebrate and recognize the 2SLGBTQ+ community, and to affirm that we are all loved and all belong.

Thursday’s Vote: An Open Letter to the TCDSB from the St. Brigid CSPC

Hello TCDSB Trustees,

The parent council at St. Brigid school is grateful for Trustee Kennedys support in voting in favour of the advisory committee’s recommendations regarding pride month activities, specifically:

  • Board-wide recognition of Pride month
  • Pride flags flying at all TCDSB schools 
  • Pride flags flying at the Board

The parent council at St. Brigid wanted to let you know that we support these actions emphatically. 

While the actions may seem small, they in fact, have an oversized weight in demonstrating that all students in our schools are welcomed and safe.  We are sure you agree with that sentiment. 

We encourage you to also vote in favour of the advisory committee’s recommendations regarding pride month activities.


Best regards,

Clifton Corbin
St. Brigid Parent Council Chair 2020-21
