Last Call for Joining In and Other Important Details

2 Jun

This is your last chance to by advance tickets to our School Council’s evening of bouncing and jumping at Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Vaughan this Monday, June 5th!  SchoolCash purchases for this event will remain open over the weekend and will close Monday morning.  For more information about this active and fun community event, including jump times, please see the flyer.  If there remain unsold spaces for jumpers, walk-in purchases can be made, though we cannot guarantee their availability.

We remind all participants to try and arrive a half an hour before their scheduled jump time, bring their Sky Zone socks (if they have them), and please complete the Sky Zone waiver for each child in advance, to save time.  Sky Zone has notified us that many of the registered jumpers have yet to complete the waiver online, or have expired waivers on file, and it will take time to do so at the few shared computer terminals at the event … but only a minute or two at home.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Get Jumping … Tickets are Still Available!

29 May

Come on out for a fun evening!  If your child has never been to Sky Zone, it’s a great experience.  If they have already been, you know how much they love it, so surprise them with an hour of bouncing!

Early Release Day

25 May

All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being.  On Thursday, June 29th, 2017 an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day.  These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 29th, 2017 only.  Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:55 a.m.  Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time.  Parents/guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office.

Community Event Ahead!

18 May

Our School Council would like to invite Bakersfield P.S. families to join us for an evening of bouncing and jumping at Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Vaughan!  For information on how to purchase tickets for this active and fun community event, please see the flyer.  Space is limited, so reserve a spot for your child today.

We look forward to seeing you there!
