Exciting Art Project at Brownridge

21 Apr

Hey Brownridge, we are excited to tell you about a special guest coming to our school to work with the intermediate students! The wonderful Canadian artist Gloria Hope will be our  Artist In Residence April 28-May 2. The Artist In Residence (AIR) program is funded  by the Ontario Arts Council. With 5 days of fun and hard work a sculpture representing our touchstone will be created in our outdoor classroom.  If your child is an intermediate student, be sure they wear old clothes and shoes because we will be working with messy materials. Stay posted for more updates!

Lates and Absences

19 Apr

The education Act states, “a pupil shall attend punctually and regularly”(Regulation 262, Section 23). 

At Brownridge, we emphasize the importance of good attendance and arriving to school on time to help students establish patterns for success, now and in the future. We have at least 12-15 students arriving late each day. Students who arrive late disrupt classmates’ learning and risk missing essential instruction. School begins promptly at 8:40 and students are expected to be in their classes prepared and ready to learn.  If your child is late due to an appointment or unforeseen circumstance, please call the office prior to 8:40 to report (905-660-3083). Otherwise, please make any adjustments necessary to your morning routines to ensure your child arrives at school on time.

As well, if your child will be absent, please call the office before 8:30 a.m. If your child is absent for more than 1 day in a row, you need to call the office each day to report the absence.


Cell Phone Calls

14 Apr

A reminder, students should not be using their cell phone during the school day (indoors/outdoors) unless using it with their teacher for instructional purposes. Please support this expectation by not calling or texting your child during the day. If you need to contact your child, please call the school office at 905-660-3083.
