ECO Team Update

12 Apr

April 22 is Earth Day and April is Earth Month. It will be a very busy month for the Eco Team!

This week will be the last week that the Eco Team will be coming around to check for the Let The Sunlight In and Save Our Resources Contests. The winners will be announced at the Character Trait assembly at the end of the month.

In celebration of Earth Day the ECO team is asking all students and staff to wear different colours representative of our beautiful planet.  This will be taking place the week before Earth Day (Earth Day is Mon. April 22).

Monday April 15 – WEAR BLUE FOR WATER

Tuesday April 16 – WEAR GREEN FOR PLANTS

Wednesday April 17 – WEAR YELLOW FOR THE SUN


Have you started your Spring cleaning? We will be collecting unwanted textiles on April 23, 24 and 25 and the Bag2School truck will pick everything up on the morning of April 25.

On Fri. April 26, we will have our Spring Walk to School Day and we will serve apple and orange juice. Please come and join us outside of the Primary doors before 8:40 am!

The city is holding its Clean Toronto Together campaign on April 26.  Some of our classes will be organizing to clean up our school yard/immediate area.  This is a classroom-based event.

The Eco team and Mrs. Marchiori’s class will be running the Cooperation assembly on Tuesday, April 30 in the afternoon. Kindergarten and primary classes will come to the gym at 12:40 and the Junior classes at 1:15.

Children often hear a lot of negative content in regards to our planet. It is important to remember to recognize the beauty and all the amazing initiatives that are in place to help support our Eco systems as well.

Thank you for your support in our spirit days!

Vow of Silence

26 Mar

The Vow of Silence

On Wednesday, March 27th, Summit Heights will be taking a Vow of Silence. This is an event during which teachers will lead their classes in silence.

Some children do not get to use their voices and speak up for themselves. That’s obviously not fair, so Summit Heights is joining forces with We Charity (formerly called Free the Children) to say, “They don’t get to use their voices? Well, neither will we!”

We will need your family’s help! Please bring in a donation of $2-$5 on Wednesday, March 27th. You donation will purchase a sticker that will explain why you are silent. All proceeds will go to We Charity’s work to protect the rights of children in countries around the world.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support of this important cause.

Earth Hour

25 Mar



On Friday, March 29 all the schools in the Toronto District School Board will be participating in Earth Hour between 2 and 3 pm. At this time, we will turn off all unnecessary lights and refrain from using any electrical items in order to conserve energy.

We will be encouraging all students and families to also take part in the world wide Earth Hour on Saturday, March 30. Between 8:30 and 9:30 pm, lights will be switched off all around the globe.

When the lights do go back on, think about what other changes you can make in your family’s everyday life to help our Earth!

You can go to to find more information about Earth Hour.
