From the Principal’s Desk – Dec 13, 2012

PIZZA DAY

Due to the uncertainty of the teacher’s one day strike we feel it best to postpone December’s pizza lunch. This will be rescheduled for Tuesday, January 15th and January’s regular pizza day will be on Tuesday, January 29th.

LOST and FOUND

Our lost and found is over flowing again, so we will be taking these items to a charity early next week. Please visit our lost and found table over the next few days to see if anything belongs to you.

GRADE 7 EXTENDED FRENCH INFORMATION MEETING

A meeting for grade 6 students and parents who are interested in the Late Entry Extended French Program for next year will be held on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 7:00 pm in the Music Room. Application packages will be sent home in early January.

PRIMARY PHYS. ED.

We welcome Mr. Melgies to the Swansea Staff.  He will be taking over the primary physical education program for Mr. Chauhan.  He will be meeting with Mr. Chauhan to learn all the “fun” and “correct” games the students play in the gym.

NEW ONLINE RESOURCE FOR TORONTO’S MIDDLE CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS  – TORONTO CHILDREN SERVICES

The City of Toronto’s website has a new online locator to help parents and guardians of children from 6 to 12 years of age find before-school and after-school programs in Toronto. This new resource marks the first phase of the City of Toronto’s Middle Childhood Strategy.

The locator can be found at
www.toronto.ca/children/middlechildhood_map.htm

The locator is designed to search for locations of licensed school-age child care programs, Full-Day Kindergarten before and after school programs, and after school recreation care (ARC) programs. The locator will continually be expanded to search for more categories.

The City of Toronto’s Middle Childhood Strategy aims to achieve five goals:

  • develop a comprehensive and integrated system of services for children 6 to 12
  • improve the planning and coordination of local programs
  • increase the quality of programs
  • raise public awareness of the availability of programs for this age group
  • support research and share information.

For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
