Confederation Celebration

27 Jun

Canada Day Logo

Tomorrow is an exciting day at Brownridge. The entire school will be spending the day celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. The classes have been divided into provinces and territories, each represented with unique colours. Students have been asked to do their best to dress in their province/territory colours. It promises to be a beautiful day so please send your child to school ready for a fun day of outdoor activities.

June 29, 2017 – Early Release Day

26 Jun

All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being.  On Thursday, June 29, 2017 an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day.  These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 29, 2017 only.  Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:30 p.m.  Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time.  Parents/guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.
