Short and Sweet…a week in review

This week – though only 4 days long – was packed full!  Our Grade 6’s gave their full attention and effort to thier EQAO test, we have had Scientists in the School back again for the 4’s and 5’s, our Track and Field practices have been underway and we have all been busy learning!

Last night we had our last School Council meeting.  We are so grateful for our Council and the broader community for the ways in which you are able to support the work we are doing at school.  We also appreciate the widespread enthusiasm and spirit for our Mavericks big and small!  Thank you to our Council for an incredible year.  Please consider coming out to a meeting next year to see what it is all about and to meet new parents!

Looking ahead to next week…

Congratulations to Isaiah Hire who received an award from the Alliance of Educators for Black Students in honour of his excellence in the arts, and more specifically, music. Isaiah has shown tremendous talent and more importantly, a willingness to work hard to learn more and to be the best he can be. His is so deserving of this award and we are very proud of this accomplishment! Keep up the great work, Isaiah! Go Mavs!

Mavericks are going LIVE!

Tomorrow is our NUTRITION REVOLUTION DAY!  We are so excited to celebrate all of the fantastic food choices that our Mavericks have been making.  The raffle basket is ready, the names for participation are on ballots for the grand prizes tomorrow and the ‘swag’ bags are packed for distribution!  Starting at 7:10 a.m., some of us will be LIVE on CP24 showing off our cooking skills and demonstrating the recipes we have tried the past few weeks.  While you are still at home tomorrow, be sure to tune in at 7:10a.m., 7:40, 8:10 and 8:40 to support our school!

The Nutrition Revolution Assembly will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the gym and prizes will be drawn at that time.  WAY TO GO MAVS!


A Fantastic Night!

Thank you to everyone who came out to travel Canada with us and do some math together!  Thank you also to the staff for their hard work pulling this all together. It was INCREDIBLE!  We had over 80 families turn up to learn and have fun together. I hope you were able to find ‘where the math is’. Way to go Mavericks!!!


We are ready and waiting to travel across Canada tonight!  We can’t wait to see you for our Family Math Night.  Please check in with Ms. Cameron to get your passports in the front foyer and when you finish your travels, please come to the office for your math swag bag and your family photo at one of the Canadian Landmarks! We will be here between 6:30-8:00…

Swag bags from last year will be available for purchase for $10 and raffle tickets for the Nutrition Revolution basket will be available for $5 at the check in desk.
