Brownridge is buzzing with amazing things happening! Here’s what you need to know!

  • Student-Led conferences/Parent teacher interviews are taking place on Thursday and Friday (Nov 23 and 24). If you have not already registered with Edsby and booked an appointment, please do so by Nov 21. Need help? Please call the office for support.
  • PA DAY– There is no school for students on Friday, Nov 24. Conferences/interviews will be taking place on this day.
  • Progress Reports are coming home on Wednesday, November 22. These reports are an indication of how your student is doing in relation to achieving the expectations by the end of term one. This will be a great opportunity to engage in goal setting with your student and create a plan to achieve that goal.
  • Attention Grade 8 Parents/Guardians– Just a reminder that our Grade 8 Muskoka Trip parent information session is taking place on Monday, November 20 at 6pm in room 204.
  • Congratulations to the Intermediate Boys Volleyball team for demonstrating amazing team work and collaboration on the court at the Volleyball Areas which took place at Brownridge this week. Their hard work and determination was second to none. Thank you to Mr. Hinds and Ms. Suh for coaching this amazing team. Good luck to our Intermediate Girls Volleyball team next week!

  • HOLIDAY HEROES CAMPAIGN– Our Holiday Heroes campaign is beginning shortly. Since the launch of the campaign in 2008, York Regional Police has raised more than $1 million in monetary donations, new toys, new children’s clothing and food. As always, all donations raised in York Region, stay in York Region. Our success could never have been achieved without the help of our important school friends. This year’s school campaign will run until December 15, 2017. One hundred percent of donations directly support the children from our community who are in need.

Here are some ways you can help:

  • Contribute new unwrapped toys for all ages (Bins will be in the front foyer)
  • Donate new warm clothing, pajamas, coats, hats and mitts (Bins will be in the front foyer)
  • Donate grocery and department store gift cards (There is a collection box on the office)
  • SAVE THE DATE– Our awesome school council is organizing our second school event of the year. BINGO NIGHT IS TAKING PLACE ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14. Stay tuned for more information.
