Dear Parents and Families,

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school from Nov. 21-24! What better way to promote reading to our students than by supporting this important literary event?

We invite your entire family to participate by purchasing the latest and greatest in children’s books. Your support of this vital literary event is a key part of helping us obtain new books and resources for our library and classrooms.

 You’ll find hundreds of quality books at our Book Fair with a wide assortment for all reading levels. Visit the Scholastic Book Fairs website at www.scholastic.ca/bookfairs to get more detailed information about these books. You can also watch book trailers and author videos with your child on the BookTube page.

Your child will be receiving a Book Fair flyer in the next few days. The flyer provides a preview of only a FEW of the many books available to purchase at our Fair. The flyer also contains a special ballot that parents or students can deposit in a ballot box in the library during the Book Fair. You could win $50 in books – $25 for your family PLUS $25 for your child’s classroom! The draw will take place Thurs. Nov. 23 around 8:00 pm.

 

  • All classes will have an opportunity to visit the book fair on Tues. Nov. 21 and Wed. Nov. 22 during the day to preview the selection. They may fill out a “wish list” of the books that interest them for you to see and may also purchase at this time if they have money. ***The book fair will remain open during Parent-Teacher interviews on Thurs. Nov. 23 from 4:00-8:00 and Fri. Nov. 24 until noon.

 

Don’t forget to mark the Book Fair dates on your calendar! We look forward to seeing you and thank you, in advance, for supporting this great literary event. Thank you for believing in books and the impact of reading on your child’s future.

Mrs. R. Tenenbaum

Camp Muskoka Parent Information Night (Grade 8 Students)

1 Nov

Parents and Students are encouraged to attend.

Date: Monday, November 20, 2017

Time: 6:00pm

Where: Brownridge PS in the Library

 Dear Parent / Guardian,

We are planning an exciting trip to Camp Muskoka Outdoor Education Leadership Centre for this year’s Grade 8 students from Monday, March 05, 2018 to Wednesday, March 07, 2018

The Camp Muskoka overnight experience offers students a great opportunity to learn and develop leadership skills that will benefit the entire school community. While at Camp Muskoka, students will be submerged in a beautiful, natural forest setting where they will have the opportunity to experience numerous hands-on, curriculum-linked educational and recreational activities. Camp Muskoka’s teaching staff specializes in leadership training and team building workshops, both of which will be integrated throughout the program.

One of the featured activities included in this excursion is Camp Muskoka’s Canopy Aerial Park. This 18 element high ropes challenge course takes students on an eco-adventure through the forest canopy of Camp Muskoka, culminating with the longest zip-line in Ontario. Challenge Course activities are designed to encourage leadership, communication skills and social development within a student group.

While this type of trip normally costs more than $450 per student, Camp Muskoka has offered a special promotion enabling us to experience an all-inclusive 3 Day, 2 Night Outdoor Education (meals, accommodations, bus, programs and taxes) for only $245 per student.

The staff of Camp Muskoka will be hosting a parent information night at Brownridge PS to inform parents of the details of the trip as well as answer any questions. Brochures will be provided to all that attend, in the meantime, for more information on Camp Muskoka please feel free to visit the Outdoor Education section of Camp Muskoka’s web site at http://www.campmuskoka.com.

Thank you for your valuable consideration. We look forward to seeing you and your student(s) at the information night.
