The Week that was...

Another warm, bright and sunny week here at school. Students are definitely enjoying time outside whether it is during recess, cross country practice or just reading under a tree. 

Please remember that Monday, September, 25th is a PA day. Students will not attend school on that day and will return to school on Tuesday.

We have seen a lot of co-curricular opportunities begin. Sign up for the band began yesterday. Cross country has been ongoing with the meet taking place this coming Tuesday. Girls volleyball practices have started in the morning as well. We can look forward to our 150 Running Club continuing soon. If students have an idea for a club that is currently not offered we recommend that they talk to their teacher who can pass on the suggestion to staff.

Our grade 7s were at McMaster University (the favoured university of Tiger Talk) for a day of fun, physical activity and leadership. We hope they enjoyed the day and came away with strengthened relationships with both their teachers and peers.

Have a safe and happy weekend. Get out and enjoy the summertime weather!

Children/Babies Unattended in cars:

We have been notified a couple of times now of babies left unattended in cars while parents are in the school picking up children. Although it can be more work, we ask that parents take small children into the school with them when picking up an older sibling. Not only does a child unattended become frightened easily, but being left in a car can also be an extreme safety hazard.

School Council:
On Monday September 8th our school council dissolved itself for the 2016/2017 year. Council will reform for the 2017/2018 year on Monday, October, 2nd 2017. All are welcome to attend the meeting which begins at 7PM in our school staff room. As always, the council is actively looking for new members. Please come out and join council in support of our students.

School Council Volunteer Opportunities:
Events such as Pizza day, Dance-a-thon, and movie night are all supported by our volunteers who would like you to know that they can use help! For more information visit our website and follow the link to School Council and click on the volunteering tab.

Crosswalks:

A reminder to all of our families that the safest way to cross the street is at our designated crosswalks. We have two of them (south end and north end) along Yates. Please take the time to cross at them as safety should always be our number one priority. (see attached flyer)
Climber in the Morning:

Climber in the Morning:

Please be aware that our red climber is unsupervised by teachers before and after school. It is for this reason that we ask our students not to play on it at these times. We are noticing that, particularly before school, students are playing on it. We have had a couple of bumps and bruises during unsupervised time so we ask for your assistance in reminding your children of the times that they can play on the climber with supervision.

Parking Lot:

A reminder that our south parking lot is open only to Kindergarten parents for a ‘Kiss and Ride’ drop off before school (parking tag required). This lot is completely closed in the afternoon as we encourage the safe departure of all of our students at the end of the day. Parking in designated areas is permitted on Yates Drive. Our north parking lot is for staff parking only and is therefore closed to traffic at all times of the day. We have 2 crossing guards on Yates in front of the school to help families/students cross the street safely. 

Public Health Nurse/Wellness:

We would like to invite you to join us and our public health nurse, April Redor. She will be discussing Back to School Wellness for Children and Families. Also, Youth Settlement Specialists will speak about settlement services and programs. There will be an opportunity to meet and greet other parents and access interpretation if needed. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided. As well, there will be a raffle for a door prize of your choice of a backpack filled with back to school goodies. If needed, childcare will be provided on site.
Date: Tuesday September 26th, 2017
Time: 9:05pm - 10:30am
Location: Meet in the main office at Tiger Jeet Singh Public School
Please sign in at the office upon arrival at the school.
