Principal’s Update (April, 2018)

15 Apr

Dear Summit Heights Parents,

The School Play is this Wednesday!
This Wednesday marks the culmination of months of script writing, set and wardrobe creation, rehearsals and practices and hours upon hours of hard work, as our school musical is set to hit the stage!  As you likely know, this year’s play is an original piece of work, co-written by our students and staff!  We are all very excited to see the work in action as our students are ready to act, sing and dance this Wednesday night!  The play is set to start at 6:00pm at the Yorkwoods Public Library theatre, located at 1785 Finch Avenue , North York.  As previously communicated, the play is asking for a “pay what you can” for the play’s program.  Please also note, tickets have already been issued for this event, please ensure you have your ticket when you arrive.

To all the actors, “break a leg” (that’s theatre-speak for good luck!)!  A huge thanks to Ms. Brock, Ms. Greco, Ms. Shapiro for leading this year’s play.  Likewise, thanks to Ms. Bozin, Ms. Mercer, Ms. Da Silva, Mr. Brock, Mr. Chen, Ms. Eisen & Ms. Bates for helping out during the evening, behind the scenes!

Sibling Photo Day (for the yearbook)
Edge Imaging will be at our school on Friday, April  20th to take photos of all SHPS siblings for our school yearbook.  All students who have a sibling at SHPS will be asked to pose for a photo.  Families with students who fall under this category are under no obligation to purchase a photo or package of photos/materials from Edge Image, however if you would like to order such materials, please fill out the flyer that was sent home earlier.  Likewise, any parents who want their child to take an individual photo with Edge Image are welcome to, and can indicate such by returning the complete flyer.

Summit Heights Open House
Our Spring Open house is set for Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 @ 6:00pm.  Parents and families are invited to visit their child(ren)’s classroom and take part in an interactive session of getting to know what our students are learning at Summit Heights.  Each classroom will have selected a focus to present/have available for your visit!  We hope to see you on May 3rd!

Open meeting to discuss school model
On April 10, Mr. Anton and I presented the school model at the School Advisory Council (SAC or “Parent Council”) meeting.  During the next few days a number of parents, who were unable to attend the SAC meeting, requested meetings to better understand the model and the decision making process.  We invite any and all parents to attend a meeting on Thursday, May 3rd at 5:30pm in the school gym, during which time members of the staffing committee and I will again present the school model and the reasons on why this model was chosen.

Thank you for visiting,

B. Mah,
