Meet the Teacher BBQ

St. Andrew’s JHS will be holding a ‘Meet the Teacher BBQ’ for parents/guardians, come rain or shine, on Thursday, Sept. 29th from 6 to 8 p.m.  Due to the fact that parking is limited, we have established a staggered arrival time for the different grades.

This is an opportunity to meet your child’s teachers, learn about the various programs, and take a look at some of the resources.  This is not intended to be a parent/teacher interview evening; those interviews will be held in November when more time has passed and the teachers are better able to address your child’s progress.  Attached is a flyer with more information regarding the staggered arrival times for the barbecue/Meet the teacher event.  We hope to see you there!    bbq-flyer-2016


Parent Council Elections/Meeting

The first School Council meeting for the 2016-17 school year will take place on Wednesday, Sept 28th beginning at 6:45 p.m. in our school library on the 2nd floor.  Along with elections for the council executive positions and regular council business, our Trustee Gerri Gershon will attend to speak to the junior high review currently in progress.

The TDSB has established a program area review team (PART) to review accommodation options for the York Mills CI cluster of schools.  This grouping includes St. Andrew’s, Windfields, York Mills, Rippleton, Owen, Harrison, Dunlace, Denlow, Broadlands, Don Valley and Armour Heights.  The PART will review options to address over and under enrolment in schools in the area, look at program pathways and consider a four year secondary experience for our students.  Additional information can be found at  Select ‘Program Area Reviews’ from the top pulldown and then ‘2016 York Mills Cluster’.

Consider attending the parent council meeting and sharing your input with Trustee Gershon so that the needs of the St. Andrew’s JHS community are represented and can be brought to the attention of the review team.
