Turkey lunch on December 9

The cafeteria will be serving a delicious Holiday  Meal (oven roast turkey dinner gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, steamed vegatables, and a special treat) on Wednesday December 9th.

Remembrance Day fundraising

Thank you to staff and students for their generosity during the Remembrance Day Campaign. We raised $617.35 for the poppy drive, $100 for the True Patriot Love Foundation (for the legacies of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and P.O. Patrice Vincent) & $100 for the Veterans Wing of Sunnybrook Hospital.

Schedule Changes for next week

As you are aware, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, the union that represents high school teachers, began a local withdrawal of selected services starting on November 4, 2015.

As a result of this job action, we will no longer be following the late start schedule currently in place for Wednesday, November 25 and Friday, November 27. Classes will revert back to the regular class day schedule on these dates, meaning school will start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 3:15 p.m.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and are committed to doing everything possible to ensure the integrity of the learning day.

Thank you for your understanding. We will continue to provide information as it becomes available. Please checkwww.tdsb.on.ca/labour<http://www.tdsb.on.ca/labour> for more information and a full list of withdrawn services.

Sincerely,

Joel Gorenkoff
Principal

NETS FOR VETS & RED & WHITE DAY (Nov 10)

The Student Council & the NTAA will be running two exciting events:

  •  The first initiative is a Red & White Day in honour of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and W.O. Patrice Vincent.  You will see that this initiative has been picked up in many schools across the province as a way to honour these fallen soldiers and as a show of support for our country.
  • The second is our annual Nets for Vets Charity floor hockey game which runs at lunch on November 10th.  This year we hope to raise funds for both the Veterans Wing of Sunnybrook Hospital and the Charities associated with Cpl. Cirillo and W.O. Vincent.

 Please support and promote these events! Wear red & white and attend the game….Tickets are only $1.

Letter regarding CUPE job action

29 September 2015

 Dear Parents/Guardians,

 We wanted to provide you with an update about job action being taken by theCanadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which represents school support staff.

 Currently, the union is in ongoing labour negotiations with the Government of Ontario and public school boards. As a result,members of CUPE are taking part in a legal job action that will impact our schools.

 It’s important to note that schools remain open and instructional programs continue to run. During these extraordinary times inour schools, principals and viceprincipals are working together with staff to maintain a caring and positive school environment.As always, student safety and learning remain the top priorities of all TDSB staff, and superintendents are in daily contact with our schools to assess any concerns.

 Today, CUPE (e.g. custodians, school office staff,educational assistants) has started a partial withdrawal of services which includes:

  • Not sweeping entrances and hallways
  • Not doing school compost programs
  • Not cutting grass or cleaning up leaves unless there is a safety concern
  • Not collecting or accepting money for schoolrelated initiatives and fundraising

A full list of CUPE’s directives to its members is available at www.tdsb.on.ca/labour.

 As the withdrawal of services continues, it MAY have a more significant impact on school activities and permits.

 As you can imagine, principals and viceprincipals have had to take on additional tasks as a result of the ongoing job action and we appreciate your patience. During this time, there may be some delays when trying to contact your school office. While we appreciate offers of assistance from parents, volunteers cannofulfill the duties of staff during a legal job action.

For all the latest labour information, visit tdsb.on.ca/labour.

 We remain hopeful that a fair agreement can be reached between unions, the Government of Ontario and public school boards in the very near future.

 Robin Pilkey, Chair 

Donna Quan, Director of Education
