Recess Professional Development Session

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

- Islamic Heritage Month
- Hispanic Heritage Month

- Women’s History Month
