Grade 8 Student and Parent Information Session

11 Dec

We recognize the fundamental importance of the transition between elementary and secondary schools and work closely with Vaughan Secondary School to ensure our grade eight students have a successful grade nine year.

The Guidance Department from Vaughan Secondary School has already had an opportunity to visit our grade 8 classes to share with students about course requirements, course selection and registration procedures.  As students begin to work through some of these details, often new questions emerge.  To this end, we’re grateful to have the opportunity to host a Grade 8 Student and Parent Information Evening on Thursday, January 11 at 7pm right here at Brownridge.

Ms. Maria Maiato, the principal of Vaughan Secondary School will provide a short presentation and answer questions from Grade 8 students and parents about secondary schooling generally, and Vaughan Secondary School, in particular.  While many students and parents attended the earlier, area-wide information session in November, we are thankful to have Ms. Maiato offer this evening for our community, in a smaller, more intimate setting at Brownridge –particularly at the time when students will be engaged in course selection and many questions are likely to emerge.  We look forward to seeing you on this evening.

Thank you to all of our students, staff and parents who came out to support our Scholastic Book Fair!  It would not have been such a success without YOU.  Thanks to you, we sold almost $3,000.00 worth of books and assorted items.  A large portion of these sales will be returned to the school in the form of library books and resources to support our students.  We sincerely appreciate the AMAZING team of volunteers who helped with all aspects of the fair, from setting it up to taking it down and everything in between. Thanks again to everyone for your support!!!

AUTHOR VISIT – MICHAEL WADE IS COMING TO BROWNRIDGE ON WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 6.

2 Dec

Brownridge is pleased to host Michael Wade, author of the best-selling series, ….And Then It Happened!!!  Since its publication in the fall of 2003, this series has been entertaining students across North America with its laugh-out-loud humour that is guaranteed to get kids reading! Mike has become one of the busiest guest authors in the country, visiting hundreds of schools each year to promote a love of reading. His presentation, geared towards students from gr. 3-6, focuses on the power of words and the fun and importance of reading.

Some of the points included in his visit are:

-The Writing Process and the steps that an author goes through to write a book or a short, fun writing activity,

-How to generate ideas for writing and the sharing of a new story, where he asks for audience feedback.

-On the day of the visit, signed copies of his books will be available for the special “author day” price of $5.00 each including GST, or the complete set of 13 books for just $40.00 including GST.  These books normally sell for over $100.00 for the set.  If you wish to purchase one or more books, please have your child bring exact change or a cheque (made payable to Books For Boys Inc.) on the day of his visit.

 

What an amazing opportunity!!!!
