Dear Parents and Caregivers,
On Thursday October 3rd we had our annual Terry Fox Run in the afternoon. Students in grades K-6 participated in a run on the back field. We stretched and students walked and ran while music played in the background. We raised over $800 this year! Thank you to our community for their donations. Thumbs up to the following staff members who organized this event for us: Mr. Chandrapal and Ms. Seretis.
We have a number of events that are happening in October:cross country (Oct 10), Resource Job Fair for our community (Oct 17), Kindergarten trip to Dixie Orchard Farm (Oct 17) and Russian delegates visiting Joyce (Oct 24).
Our teacher candidates from the University of Toronto begin their teaching placements full days on October 28-November 22. The following teachers are hosting a student teacher:Ms. Chow, Ms. Hoang, Mr. Lee, Ms. McEwan, Ms. Spencer and Ms. Callea.
The October newsletter is being sent home on October 10th.
I have updated our calendar section on our site with all holidays, PA days and events. Please refer to it regularly for updates.
I have an open door policy and I invite parents to call and/or come in to see me if they have any questions and/or concerns. I am here to support you and our students and I will work closely with you so that our students are successful.
Roula Skordakis, Principal
