Jungle Sport for Grown-Ups!

Jungle Sports for Grown-Ups

 

Yes, you read that right.

 

As many of you may have seen in last week’s Friday file, we are bringing Jungle Sports back to Summit Heights for the students the week of November 26.

 

This year, we have added a twist. For one night only, parents will have the opportunity to sign up and participate in Jungle Sports. We will have a specially made adult course for us to go through (and probably embarrass ourselves in).

 

This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity!

 

On Tuesday November 27 from 6:00pm-9:00pm, the Summit Heights gym will be open for the grown-ups to try their hand at Jungle Sports.

 

You must sign up in order to participate!!!

 

If you are interested in signing up, please complete the attached form (see below) and email it to andrew@acmconsulting.ca

 

We hope you can make it.

Principal’s Update

04 Nov

Dear Summit Heights Families,

We had a jammed packed month of October at our school!  We had a number of school events, many of our school teams completed their seasons, new clubs started up, classes went on excursions, and so much more!

At the beginning of the month the staff held our annual Curriculum Night.  Parents came to visit their child’s class to get to know about the curriculum, class routines and the teacher’s expectations.  The SAC organized lunch-hour programs began the second week of October with over a dozen activities to choose from!  Pizza lunch, also organized by SAC, started up with weekly Pizza lunches.  The annual Pumpkin Patch was a huge success as well this year!  On October 30th our kindergarten students were treated to a pumpkin patch on our front lawn, while also participating in a number of curriculum based activities.   A huge thanks to the parent committee/volunteers, lead by Alanna, Gillian and Julia, for organizing this great event!

Like in past years, our community Police Liaison Officer, Officer Shari, visited our school.  Officer Shari was able to host a number of assemblies, catering to the age levels of our students.  She covered topics ranging from who the Police are (for kindergarten students) to inclusion and anti-bullying (for our junior students).

Our school had it’s annual Photo Day on October 17 (and not to worry, the photo re-take day is scheduled for November 15th).

As you know, our school was a site for the municipal election held on October 22nd.  We’re pleased to report that the day went smoothly from our school’s side of things.

The ECO school club organized our first “Walk to School Day” on October 19th – thanks to everyone who were able to walk to school on this day (and every other day!).

In terms of school teams,  the boys soccer team and co-ed touch football teams finished their seasons in October with grit, effort and sportsmanship.  The co-ed cross-country team also finished the season with a strong showing, and a huge congrats to Bram who competed in the city championships for cross-country!  The girls’ soccer team capped off their season with an amazing showing at the Conference level, capturing the Championship banner for Division 2!  Congrats girls – way to go!!!!  Huge thanks to the many coaches of the aforementioned teams, including Mr. Eschle, Mr. Khaja, Mr. Hunter and many more!

The month wrapped up with students (and staff) dressed up in a variety of great costumes for Halloween!  It was great to see so many members of our school have some fun, express themselves and get into the spirit with their creative and fun costumes.

November will surely be another busy month with a lot of learning in our classes, plenty of activities and events!

As you know, our SAC updates our school Google calendar on a regular basis. You can find the link to the calendar on the right link page on this web site (you can also find instructions on how to add the calendar to your mobile device).

Here are some dates/events for November:

Nov 7 – Pizza Nova Workshop (portable one with Ms. Brock)

Nov 14 – Progress Reports go home

Nov 15 – Photo Re-take Day

Nov 15 – Evening Parent-teacher Progress Report Interviews

Nov 16 – PA Day & Morning Parent-teacher Progress Report Interviews

Nov 20 – SAC Meeting (7-9pm)

Nov 26-30 – Jungle Sport

 

 

 

Please note: Change re Tov Li lunches

31 Oct

Dear Summit Heights Families,

Tov Li Lunch Update:
The first Tov Li lunch that was scheduled for Friday November 2nd will be moved to Thursday November 15. Given the field trip for the grade 4 and 5 classes on November 2nd, it was decided to change the date to Thursday November 15th  to accommodate all the students.

A reminder message for the first Tov Li lunch will be sent prior to November 15th. We apologize for any inconvenience

Marla and Wendy

SHPS Hallowe’en Costume Reminder.

30 Oct

Hallowe’en Costume Reminders:

As in past years, many students wear/change-into Hallowe’en costumes at school on Hallowe’en (which is tomorrow, Wed. Oct 31st).

As a school policy based on safety, Hallowe’en costumes worn at school are not to have any weapons, masks are also prohibited (students need to be able to see where they are walking, see where they are running during PE class/recess, and staff need to be able to identify our students).

Thank you for your understanding, we look forward to a fun-filled day on Hallowe’en!

 

Tips from the Toronto Police Services:

Trick or Treat Safety Reminders For Children:

  • Be alert and aware of what’s going on around you.
  • Watch out for cars. Remember that it may be hard for drivers to see you.
  • Stay on well lit streets and always walk on the sidewalk.
  • Walk, don’t run, and obey all traffic signs.
  • Never take shortcuts through backyards, laneways or parks.
  • Do not go into anyone’s car or house, even if you know the person.
  • Stay away from lit pumpkins.
  • Do not approach pets or other animals.
  • Be polite and say “thank you.”
  • Wear costumes that are short enough so that you do not trip.
  • Decorate costumes with reflective tape.
  • Shoes should fit well so you don’t fall.
  •  When you go out, carry a glow stick or flashlight with new batteries.
  • It can be hard to see out of a mask, so use makeup or face paint instead.
  • Trick or treat in groups with a trusted adult – it’s safer and more fun.
  • Carry a cellular phone with you, if possible.
  • Visit only houses with the lights on.
  • Don’t eat any treats unless they are checked by a parent or the adult looking after you.
