On behalf of the staff, I extend a warm St. Andrew’s welcome to new and returning students and parents! It is a pleasure to return to this community having previously taught and counselled St. Andrew’s students while at York Mills CI. I have already had the opportunity to meet a few parents and I’m hoping to meet many more at the upcoming events:
- Welcome Parent Coffee, Friday Sept. 16th at 9 a.m. in the front foyer. Please drop in and say hello even if you can’t stay long.
- First 2016-17 Parent Council Meeting & Elections, Wed. Sept. 28th at 6:45 p.m. in the Library. All positions currently open; please consider taking part!
- Meet the Teacher Night – Thursday Sept. 29th, times TBD
We have had a good start to the school year. Thanks to all who have already returned all the forms and monies. Our gr. 7s are busy preparing for Frosh Frolic; forms will be coming home Friday for the Mono Cliffs overnight trips.
Along with this blog, we have started using the SynerVoice messaging system to relay important messages, either by phone or an email.
A reminder that we will have early dismissal on Monday, Sept. 12th (at 1:30 p.m.).
With this opening blog entry, I am including a Back to School newsletter from our trustee, Gerri Gershon. back-to-school_gershon-2
I’m looking forward to a fantastic year with the school, home and community working together. Do not hesitate to share with me any comments and concerns you may have.
