Terry Fox Walk

Our Terry Fox Walk will take place on Thursday September 27, 2018 in the afternoon. We appreciate our community’s generous support of this event. A hard copy of the information letter will be coming home with students this week, but we have also included a copy here for your reference: Terry Fox parent letter 2018. In addition to the walk, classes will also be learning about Terry Fox throughout the month.

Here is a to wonderful event both at school and in our local community.

Mount Albert Nature Day September 22nd

Our school is so fortunate to be located in such a beautiful town as Mount Albert. With expansive green spaces available to us, our children have been able to enjoy outdoor learning in many ways. We have also enjoyed the Town of East Gwillimbury’s Nature Day which this year will occur on September 22, 2018. There is an extensive list of activities available for your family to enjoy. As part of our partnership with the town we are excited to share that next week students will have the chance to learn about nature and design a button that they can bring with them to the Nature Day activities on the 22nd. Learning opportunities will occur in our Discovery Hub throughout the week.
