Fun Fair Thank You

28 Jun

Brownridge  School Council would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the following families and businesses for the items that were donated to our Fun Fair.  It was extremely generous of them, and we are grateful!

This year the weather finally co-operated, and  the event was a huge success.  It is an annual event that students, parents, and staff look forward to, as a wonderful way to celebrate all the successes that we have had throughout the year.  The final figures aren’t in yet, but I am confident we will meet our fundraising goal, in part because of your support and  these generous donations.

Thank you again, for being part of our community and for your ongoing contributions and support.  It is greatly appreciated!

Report Cards Home Tuesday. Have a Safe and Fun Summer!

26 Jun

Message From Ms. Mida and Ms. McInnis:  It has been another successful and rewarding year! This could not have been accomplished without the help and support of many people. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our teachers, EAs, secretaries, custodians, area support staff, parents and parent volunteers.  An especially big thank you to our amazing School Council for the many positive contributions to our school community. Our hot lunch program, family fun evenings and other initiatives to raise funds to support our school goals would not be possible without them.  It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye and best wishes to Ms. Bourne, Ms Chebotarov, Mr. Moore, Mr. Dimmel, Mrs. Jain, Ms. Persaud and Mrs. Morris.  We also send a heartfelt goodbye to Ms. McInnis who will be moving to another school. We’d like to wish the best to Mrs. Paul who is expecting a baby this summer and will be enjoying a year with her family. We wish students, staff and families a safe, restful and enjoyable summer break.

To our Grade 8 Graduates:  Congratulations! On behalf of the Brownridge staff and school community, we wish you success in your educational journey as you move on to high school.

Moving: If you are planning a move and your child will not be returning to Brownridge PS in September, please notify the school office or send a note with your child as soon as possible. This information helps us to plan for the next school year.

First Day of School in September: Classes will resume this year on Tuesday, September 6th. ALL students will find out their class/teacher upon arrival Sept. 6. Kindergarten students will be met by their teacher in the kindergarten yard on the East side of the building. Our new junior kindergarten students begin at 1:20 pm. For Grade 1-8 students, teachers will be meeting students on the school grounds at the back of the school. Grade levels will be posted on the wall and teachers will be outside at 8:25 with their class lists. Please do not call the school office regarding class placements. This information will only be available on the first day of school.
