Program Area Review – Public Meetings

14 Nov

Sent on behalf of The TDSB, Trustee Lulka and Summit Heights PS:


Dear Parents and Members of the School Community,

A Program Area Review Team (PART) has been established for the William Lyon Mackenzie CI southern cluster of schools.  This review will include the following schools: Dublin Heights E&MS, Faywood ABC School, John Polanyi CI, Ledbury Park E&MS, Summit Heights PS, and William Lyon Mackenzie CI.

A PART is a Trustee-approved process undertaken when changes to the grade configuration of a school (excluding changes to grade configurations of French Immersion or Extended French programs and programs for students with exceptionalities); and the establishment of new schools or new specialized programs are being considered.

Please note that school closures are not part of the scope of this or any Program Area Review.

The review is seeking public input about the proposed secondary school boundary change.  Public meetings are scheduled to take place on:

Tuesday, December 4, 2018
William Lyon Mackenzie CI
20 Tillplain Road, Toronto M3H 5R2
7:00 – 9:00 pm


Wednesday, December 5, 2018
Faywood ABC School
95 Faywood Boulevard, Toronto M3H 2X5
7:00 – 9:00 pm

Community voices are an important part of this process and I hope that you will be able to actively participate as a community member.  Please go to  for the latest information about the review.

Jungle Sport for Grown-Ups!

06 Nov

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


We hope you can make it.

Hallowe’en Safety

29 Oct

Hallowe’en Safety Tips

Hallowe’en provides an opportunity for parents and children to spend time together creating costumes, carving pumpkins, planning trick or treat activities and participating in family parties. Hallowe’en is often a big event at schools and provides opportunities for parties, creative activities, art programs and impromptu history lessons. Hallowe’en is also a time for students, parents, and schools to take extra care to ensure safety and security.


• Children should NEVER eat any treats until parents have had a chance to go through them and inspect them. Parents should look for tampering of packages and discard any they believe to be unsafe or unknown.
• Have your child carry a flashlight.
• NEVER go into a stranger’s house.
• NEVER trick or treat with people you do not know.
• Trick or treat only at homes you know.
• Children should always stay in groups if no parent is present.
• Younger children should ALWAYS be accompanied by an older person.
• Accompany your child when trick or treating.
• If you can not accompany your child then know the route your child will take.
• Flame resistant (retardant) costumes are in order. Keep costumes short and remind children to stay away from pumpkins with candles in them.
• Remind children to stay away from pets they do not know.
• Remind children of road safety rules. Cross only at corners. Do not criss-cross the road. Go up one side of the road and down the other side. Never cross between parked cars. Walk facing on-coming traffic if there is no sidewalk
• If adults are driving their children, drive slowly, with lights on and be cautious when pulling to the side of the road.
• Children should wear their own shoes when trick or treating. Wearing costume shoes/boots can be dangerous and uncomfortable.
• Remind children that not everyone celebrates Hallowe’en, and to avoid any homes that have no lights on. Also remind children not to run through neighbours yards or gardens.
• With older children, be sure to know what other events (such as parties) they plan on attending.
• Set time limits when children should return home.
We wish you a SAFE and enjoyable Hallowe’en this Tuesday!
