Curriculum Night

16 Sep

Dear Summit Heights Families,

A reminder that our annual Curriculum Night is this Thursday, Sept 19. Teachers will be speaking about their classroom routines, expectations, homework, home-school communication and the curriculum.

We will be hosting two sessions, 6:00-6:25pm and 6:30-7:00pm. The second session is a repeat of the first (you do not need to attend both sessions). Please make your way to your child’s classroom for the curriculum night sessions.

Finally, curriculum night is geared towards information for parents. Its been past practice at Summit Heights for this to be a parent/adult-focused event (unlike all of our other events), so we just ask that you be mindful of this, thank you.

Best regards,

Mr. B. Mah,
Principal.

Update on School Forms

06 Sep

Dear Summit Heights Parents/Guardians,

This is a clarification regarding the “hard copy/electronic school forms” email that was sent out yesterday.

At Summit Heights, parents have been given the option of completing many of the school forms on a hard copy format OR an electronic version.  We sent an email out yesterday to clarify, as most parents have received both versions/options.

Parents may complete the forms in either format. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Best regards,

Mr. B. Mah,
Principal.

School Forms (hard copy vs. electronic)

05 Sep

Dear Summit Heights Parents/Guardians,

As you know, a number of school forms were sent home on the first day of school with your child(ren).  We understand many of you have since received an email from the TDSB containing similar forms to be completed in an electronic format.

While we support the need to reduce our carbon footprint and the TDSB’s efforts, we kindly ask that you complete the hard-copy forms that were sent home on the first day of school, and return all of these forms to your child’s teacher (by Mon. Sept. 9, 2019). This also means, for our school, you not need to complete the electronic version of these forms.

Thank you for your understanding,

Mr. B. Mah,
Principal.

Coyote Sighting @ SHPS

04 Sep

Dear Parents/Guardians,

At approximately 7:30 this morning, a coyote was seen near our school property. Fortunately, because it was early this morning, there were no students at the school when the coyote was seen. As a precaution, we reported the sighting to Animal Services at the City of Toronto.

While coyotes are cautious and non-confrontational by nature and it is not unusual to see these animals in many parts of our city, it’s important to take appropriate steps to ensure the safety of students and staff.

We contacted the City of Toronto’s Animal Services unit to report the sighting and receive advice and tips on next steps. School staff has been, and will continue to be, especially watchful for wildlife during the school day. We have reviewed safety tips with staff and students and want to also share some information from the City’s Animal Services unit with you so you know what to do to discourage wildlife visitors and when to contact the City:

  • Coyotes are drawn to places where they can find “easy pickings.” You can help discourage these animals from visiting backyards.
  • Never feed coyotes! Do not leave any type of food outdoors for any animal, including food for house pets.
  • Make sure you keep your green bin in a secure area until collection day. 
  • While it is not uncommon to see a coyote, you should call 311 if you see these animals exploring a home or building far from a park or open area, approaching dogs or people, or behaving unusually.

On behalf of our school, please:

  • Ensure your child comes to school on time and with other students.  If late, please ensure they are accompanied. Students should not be coming in late alone. 
  • Reinforce safety precautions with your child.
  • Do not leave food in the playground. Caretakers will be cleaning up the yard immediately after school. 

For more information, visit http://www.toronto.ca/animal_services, click on wildlife, then coyotes.

As always, please contact the school should you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Mr. B. Mah,
Principal
