Be in the know at Brownridge!

1 Mar

Here is important information for you to be aware of from Brownridge!

  • Kindergarten entry and exit: As you know the pathway to the Kindergarten area is quite slippery. The cold temperatures prevent the salt and sand from melting the ice. Until the temperature improves, please drop off and pick up your child through the front doors. Alternatively, for entry, you may drive into the bus loop and have your child walked to the classroom by a staff member on duty between 8:25 and 8:40.

  • CAPES FOR KIDS: Brownridge is embarking on another journey of kindness and community outreach to build on our Holiday Heroes Campaign. We are fundraising for Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital with Capes for Kids! Our goal is to collect $1000 in this amazing school wide initiative. To celebrate, we are encouraging all students and staff to wear a cape to school on March 8th, 2019 to recognize the heroic potential in all of us. Visit the Capes for Kids website for more information.  http://capesforkids.ca/ We thank everyone who has donated thus far. #weareallinthistogether

  • Muskoka Woods- Grade 8 TripWe are super excited for the grade 8 trip happening from Monday, March 4 to Wednesday, March 6 at Muskoka Woods. This trip of a lifetime includes team building activities, a ropes course, outdoor adventure, delicious food and more. Some quick tips: Dress for the cold. We will be outdoors A LOT! Leave all food and technology at home. Students will be unplugged this weekend. Follow us on Twitter @brownridgeps where we will be posting pictures and info about the trip. (Your grade 8 child should have brought home a permission form indicating your preference to have their picture posted on Twitter or not.)
