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.

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.
