Summit Heights Track & Field Day

20 Apr

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Summit Heights will be holding our annual Track and Field Day on Wednesday, April 25.  Our rain date will be the following day on Thursday, April 26.

DUE TO THE RAIN on APRIL 25 and 26, OUR TRACK AND FIELD DAY HAS BEEN RE-SCHEDULED TO WEDNESDAY MAY 2, 2018.

All students from grades 1 – 6 will be participating in a series of events. This has been a very successful day in the past,  giving students a great way to consolidate the skills they have been learning in Phys-Ed as well as an opportunity to have fun!

The primary students will be participating for the morning only, as they are participating in fewer events. The juniors will be participating all day. This means that all students should be coming to school prepared with the following labeled items: – Running shoes (no cleats) – T-shirt – Sweatshirts – Shorts – Hat – Water bottle (reusable preferred) – Sunscreen – Students with inhalers or epi-pens should also be wearing them at all times during the track and field day.

We are all looking forward to a wonderful day of physical activity and fun!

Mr. Anton & Mrs. Eisen

Walk to School day, Old Cell Phone recycling, Sibling Photo Day

19 Apr

Dear Summit Heights Families,

This is a friendly reminder of a few items:

Tomorrow (Friday, April 20th) is our Spring Walk to School day!  Organized by the ECO team, help our Earth by leaving your cars at home and walking to school with your children. Make sure your children bring a mug and join the Eco team at the back of the school to get some apple or orange juice. Don’t be late or you may miss out on a special surprise!  We encourage parents, families and caregivers to wait on our playground until all the students have entered the school in the morning on Friday April 20th!

Summit Heights is also participating in the Recycle my Cell program to help keep cell phones out of landfills. During Earth month in April, the Eco Team will be collecting old or broken cell phones and their accessories. At the end of the month, they will be sent to a company named Greentec who will either fix and resell them or recycle their metal and plastic parts. You may place old or broken cell phones and their accessories in the box just outside the office until April 27!

Thank you Mrs. Marchiori and Mrs. Eisen for the items above!

Don’t forget that tomorrow is also the Sibling Photo day.  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 completed flyer.

Thanks for reading, hope to see you tomorrow morning on our school yard!

B. Mah,
Principal.

Update regarding our school and the inclement weather

16 Apr

Dear Summit Heights Parents,

The following items apply to our school today (Mon. April 16, 2018) due to the inclement weather:

Hebrew School
Please note, the Monday after-school Hebrew classes are cancelled today.  Please arrange to have your child picked-up at 3:10 pm.  If you have arranged to have your child picked up by another adult (that is not on our contact list for your child), please send an email to Mr. Mah and indicate who is picking up your child today.

End of Day Routine (for today)
At the end of the day, students in Ms. Da Silva, Ms. Bates, Ms. Kipka, Mr. Craze, Ms. Kipka, Ms. Schmitz and Ms. Shapiro’s class will use the door between Ms. Schmitz and Ms. Shapiro’s class (near the entrance to the bus loop).

Students in all other classes will use our front doors to exit the building at the end of the day.

Please note, no classes are being held in our portables today.

Students who normally walk home on their own (e.g., some grade 6 students) may do so at the end of the day.

Signing out early/leaving school early
Due to the inclement weather, we are not allowing grade 6 students to sign themselves out today (during school hours or at lunch) even with permission from a parent.  If you want your grade 6 child to leave school early today, we require you (or another trusted adult, with your written permission) to pick up your child and sign-out at the office.

Thank you,

B. Mah
Principal.

Weather update

16 Apr

Dear parents and guardians of Summit Heights,

Due to the severe weather conditions over the weekend, the TDSB has been unable to clear our playgrounds and walkways. To that end, it is impossible to enter the school through the back and side entrances.

Students should enter the school through the front. They will not need to buzz for entry. Additionally, as this is the entrance for the kindergarten students, we ask that everyone be aware of the slippery conditions and be respectful of each other.

There will be teacher supervision before 8:25, so please drop your children off and let them enter the school on their own.

Also, keep in mind the parking lot has also not been cleared so we should all be patient and work together to ensure that the start of our school day is done safely.

Thanks

Summit Heights Administration

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,
Principal
