Grade 8 Thornlea Night

Calling all Grade 8 parents!  The Family Night at Thornlea that was scheduled for tonight, has been moved to November 7th, 2017.  A flyer with more details will be provided by the highschool later next week.  We encourage everyone to attend – even if you are planning for your child to go elsewhere – Thornlea offers some incredible programs that aren’t offered at other local schools.

 

Cross Country Regionals

From one of our grade 4 athletes: The races were pretty hard and there were lots of fast people. It was pretty windy and there were 200 people in every race. After our race, we had some free time to check out the snack bar and we had some free space to play. Our runners tried their best and we even had several Mavericks who placed in the top 100! Overall it was a great day. Go mavericks!
Congratulations to our 19 runners who represented German Mills against the fastest runners from over 150 schools from all over York Region! What an honour! Our Mavericks demonstrated great sportsmanship and determination in the very windy weather and the coaches couldn’t have been prouder. Thank you to all parents who drove all the way to Georgina to support us and to help us get back in a timely manner! Can’t wait for next season! 

Thank you!

Thank you for a great evening!  We had a wonderful turnout at the BBQ and curriculum night – so nice to see our families and welcome you into the school.  Although the weather didn’t turn out to be outside for dinner, it was still great to be together.  The staff were encouraged by the many conversations they had with each family – and we apologize to the grades 4-6 parents for the standing room only…next year we will select a larger space!

Thank you to our trustee, Susan Geller for joining us and taking the time to speak with so many people.  We didn’t get a ribbon cutting photo at the playground, but we did take a selfie with the touchstone for twitter @GermanMillsPS.

Please remember to keep in touch and stay connected!  We look forward to seeing you at Parent Teacher Interviews (see the calendar tab at the top of the Blog for dates) and for anyone interested in joining us at council on October 23rd.

Have a great rest of your evening!

They Ran…and survived the elements!

Congratulations to our Cross Country Team who had an amazing race day!  It was cold and wet but they persevered and did their best.  We have a number of runners who are advancing to the Regional races- way to go Ethan, Emmett, Joshua, Dimitri, Vanessa, Ryan, Marek, Sarah, and Mandy!

TONIGHT! Schedule and Details for our evening together

Our Curriculum Night and BBQ is tonight!  We are so excited to welcome our families into the school to see some of the amazing things we are up to.  The weather is not cooperating so we will be getting our food outside and there will be tables and mats available to eat at/on in the gym.  Please enjoy some time together at the Playground as well…though we won’t formally ‘cut the ribbon’…we can enjoy it as a community.

Program:

  • 5-6 pm BBQ
  • 6-6:15 in the gym with Ms. Cameron and our Trustee Susan Gellar
  • 6:20 – 7:15 Classroom visits and presentations
    • 6:20-6:40 Formal presentation for grade 7 & 8 parents in the library
    • 6:20-6:40 Formal presentation for Kindergarten parents in the Kindy rooms
    • 6:45- 7:00 Formal presentation for grades 4-6 parents in room  210
    • 6:20-7:00 Grades 1-3 will be having ongoing presentations in the respective classrooms

Please remember that tonight is an opportunity to see the classes and meet the teacher, it is not an individual interview for each child.  If you have specific questions or concerns, please set up a time to speak with your child’s teacher at a later date.  Thank you!
