• communicate together

Clusters Program Coming Soon! Parents – Share your skills & talents.

Clusters

Spring is (almost) here… and that means CLUSTERS IS COMING!

Clusters is a highly anticipated annual event that takes place two afternoons (12:45-3:30pm) in May. Students in Grades 1-6 have an opportunity to participate in a variety of enrichment activities run by teachers and parent volunteers. Some examples of Clusters include Rock Band, Stop Motion Animation, Abstract Art, Improv, Paramedic for the Day, Cardboard Arcade, Sewing 101, Baking, Collaging, Gardening, Greenscreening, etc. This year, Clusters will be held on Thursday, May 2nd and Tuesday, May 7th.

For the Clusters program to be successful, we need 20-22 parent volunteers! In other words, we need you!

Please email jaime.andrachuk@tdsb.on.ca or janice.macneil@tdsb.on.ca if you are interested in coordinating a Cluster this year.

SPRING FORWARD! One more sleep…!

Tomorrow, Thursday March 28th at 6:00pm….come on out and join in the fun! A free night of science, technology, engineering, and math…explore a bunch of cool and innovative ways to jump into the world of STEM!

We’re still in need of volunteers!!! NO STEM BACKGROUND IS NECESSARY!

But….if anyone has a BIOLOGY BACKGROUND for the Mould Madness and GERMania Room to help children view the specimens through the microscopes and give some explanations of their observations….that would be great!
