January updates

At Home Alone workshop – January 22 from 7-9 PM

By popular demand we have arranged for a second At Home Alone workshop to be held at the school next Wednesday, January 22nd from 7-9 PM.  The At Home Alone workshop is facilitated by Toronto Public Health and is aimed at kids aged 10-14 (grade 4-8), along with their parents/guardians.  The goal is to prepare kids to be at home alone safely.  Attendance is limited so don’t delay and sign up using this link if you want to attend with your grade 4-8 child!  Those who were on the waitlist last time will have priority this time.

Possible One Day Strike next Tuesday

As noted in communications from the Board last week, the Ontario Catholic teacher’s union is currently carrying out a work to rule campaign and will be holding a one day strike next Tuesday, January 21, if no contract deal is reached with the province before then.  Look out for upcoming information from the Board on whether school will be in session next Tuesday.  Our ECEs are also currently on work to rule and also may be on a one day strike on Monday, January 20, but school will still be in session that day.

Pizza Update

Please stay tuned for info on whether we have to move pizza day next week due to the possible one day strike on Tuesday.

Also, our current pizza session is slated to end on February 4 but since we needed to cancel pizza on October 8th the session will be extended to Feb 11.  We will open a new ordering window on or before January 28th, at which time the current ordering window will be closed.  Please keep this in mind if you usually order pizza week to week.


Volunteers are needed to help plan our annual Fun Fair if it is going to happen this year.  Please help!  If you can help, if you wanted more information or if you have thoughts about whether we should scale back to a lower key end of year barbecue, please respond to this email, go to our website, or come to the parent council meeting on Thursday.  

CSPC meeting tonight

The next parent council meeting will be held this evening from 7-9 PM in the library.  All are welcome and babysitting will be provided for those who need.
