Good luck to Zach L., who will be representing Canada at the 7-year old boys’ Kids Golf World Championships being held in Pinehurst, NC, USA this summer!  There are over 50 countries sending a representative to this prestigious event, and our very own Zach, a Summit Heights student, will be at the event representing our country!  We are all behind Zach, and know he will give it his best – and this year, he has last year’s event to draw upon for experience (Zach represented Canada last year in the 6 year old event!).  Way to go Zach, and best of luck!


Handing out treats at our school? Please read on…

A reminder that parents who wish to share treats with students at our school (other than with their own child) must have a staff member supervise/administer this.  As you know, we do our best to be an allergy free environment, and our staff know best which students in their class have allergies.

A common event is the celebration of a birthday, where a treat is shared a child’s class.  Please ensure that you a) check/communicate with your child’s classroom teacher about this, b) sign in at the main office when visiting to drop off treats, and finally c) allow your child’s teacher to hand out/oversee the distribution of the treats.

Handing out treats, for example, on our school yard (and not supervised by a staff member) is prohibited.  Thank you for your understanding.
