Recess Professional Development Session

Monday, Oct 28th from 3 - 5 PM at Sprucecourt

Let's revamp recess in Toronto.

Imagine a classroom full of students refreshed and engaged. Imagine a recess without fear, anger, sadness, or rejection.

This IS possible.

Our educators are collaborating at a PD session with Lauren McNamara (www.recessprojectcanada.com) on how to approach recess in a new way, so that students return to the classroom ready to learn.

All Toronto teachers and principals are invited to sign up or learn more here: bit.ly/recessproject


In October we recognize:

  • Islamic Heritage Month
  • Hispanic Heritage Month
  • Somali Heritage Month
  • Women’s History Month

Lunch program

$25 to $35 per month

All food served is halal. No nut or pork products are ever served in any form. Each meal includes vegetables or a salad, and fruit slices.

Stronger Together

Suitcase Theatre is performing a play for JK to grade 6's on Tuesday, Oct 1st!

Suitcase Theatre is a charitable organization founded by the creator of Mr. Dressup. Their high-quality original musical productions carry messages of kindness, compassion, and overcoming obstacles together.
