Art Council wishes to thank the many talented drama, music and visual art students for participating in our second annual spring arts launch-Spring Into Art. This informal lunchtime event seeks to announce the many senior, culminating arts events that we have to look forward to each year: Maytime Melodies, the Graduating Art Exhibition, and Lunch Time Theater. This year drama students provide entertainment for lunchtime sun seekers on the field with their inquisitive miming, and 5 teams of visual artists competed for Above Ground Art Supply gift certificates with their colourful chalk drawings while a busker provided tunes. The winning team was “L18” made up by grade 11’s Lauren Conover and Angela Vang with their ‘Dali-inspired’ depiction of spring! Thanks again for a terrific Arts Launch! See you next year!
Please come to our final meeting of the 2014-2015 school year to hear Kate Jones, B.A. (Psychology), M.Ed. speak on the topic “Understanding My Kid’s Behaviour”. Kate will help us understand the natural differences in the temperament of our kids that will lead us to a greater appreciation and acceptance of our children’s behaviors. This presentation encourages you as parents to participate in a seminar that will help you move from conflict to appreciation of your children. Kate is a founder and owner of Kate Jones & Associates, an organization that provides leadership in understanding what motivates positive behavior in different personality types.
Monday, May 11th, 7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
This special event is brought to you by the North Toronto School (Parent) Council.
Attending NT Council Meetings is an excellent way to keep current on NT activities and to share information with other NT parents.
We look forward to seeing you!

At NTCI we are participating in the tdsbCARES: Nepal Region Earthquake Relief fundraising efforts to support the Canadian Red Cross as they provide assistance to the people in Nepal following the powerful earthquake that devastated parts of the country last weekend.
NTCI will be collecting donations of cash or cheques, which will be forwarded through the TDSB to the Canadian Red Cross. The charity will issue tax receipts for all online donations as well donations via cheque (minimum value of $10). The TDSB fundraising appeal will run until May 25th. The federal government has announced that they will match all eligible donations made by that date.
For more information or to make a donation online, please visit the TDSB website at www.tdsb.on.ca and click on the Earthquake Relief banner.
With millions of people affected by the earthquake, the need is great. With that in mind, we are asking students, staff, parents and our school community to do what they can. No gift is too small or insignificant. Your donations are much appreciated.
Thank you for your support,
