Student Data Verification forms

Your child should be bringing home a ‘Student Data Verification’ form today.  Please make any changes/additions and have your child return it to us by October 2nd at the latest (sooner, if it’s ready….) Thank you!


Safety comes first: When dropping off or picking up your child…..

Signs are posted reminding parents that there is no parking or stopping along Fenn Avenue and that there is no use permitted of the NORTH parking lot.  Please use the loop created in the SOUTH parking lot when dropping off/picking up your child/children.  In addition, another option is to use the side streets and to allow your children to walk the short distance to the school.

St. Andrews JHS School Council Minutes June 14 2017

Thank you to those parents who brought to our attention that this meeting date falls on the eve of Rosh Hashana. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.  We have looked at switching dates, but were not able to find a suitable new date at this time, amidst the many other planned events at St. Andrew’s JHS this September.

For those parents who are not able to attend and would like to get involved, please contact Denise Vavaroutsos at or Senney Mark at

Thank you and wishing all a good start to this school year.

St. Andrew’s Parent Council



Hello, everyone.  This is the first entry of the school year on our St. Andrew’s JHS blog.   We have had a busy start to the school year and we extend a huge welcome to our new blog followers.  Thank you to everyone who has already registered on School Cash Online.  We hope to have a 100% participation rate.

There are several activities coming up for which I want to extend a gentle reminder…..

  • Friday, Sept. 15th, 9 to 10 a.m.:  Welcome Parent Coffee – organized by our Parent Council and taking place in our front foyer.  If you can, drop in for a cup of java and to say hello.
  • Also, on Friday, Sept. 15th: Photo Day for our students
  • School (Parent) Council:  first meeting and council elections will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 20th @ 6:45 p.m.  Please consider attending and taking part!  All meetings will take place in our school library on the second floor.
  • Wed, Sept. 27th @ 6:30 p.m.:  Meet the Teacher and Curriculum Night.  Welcome & Introductions to take place in our Cafetorium to be followed by an opportunity to meet your child’s teachers.  N.B.: this is an opportunity to meet & greet and have a quick chat, not a parent/teacher interview.  That opportunity will come later in the school year.

In addition, attached is a letter from Trustee Gerri Gershon, Ward 13, Don Valley West.
