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

7:00 – 9:00 pm


Wednesday, December 5, 2018

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.

Principal’s Update

04 Nov

Dear Summit Heights Families,

We had a jammed packed month of October at our school!  We had a number of school events, many of our school teams completed their seasons, new clubs started up, classes went on excursions, and so much more!

At the beginning of the month the staff held our annual Curriculum Night.  Parents came to visit their child’s class to get to know about the curriculum, class routines and the teacher’s expectations.  The SAC organized lunch-hour programs began the second week of October with over a dozen activities to choose from!  Pizza lunch, also organized by SAC, started up with weekly Pizza lunches.  The annual Pumpkin Patch was a huge success as well this year!  On October 30th our kindergarten students were treated to a pumpkin patch on our front lawn, while also participating in a number of curriculum based activities.   A huge thanks to the parent committee/volunteers, lead by Alanna, Gillian and Julia, for organizing this great event!

Like in past years, our community Police Liaison Officer, Officer Shari, visited our school.  Officer Shari was able to host a number of assemblies, catering to the age levels of our students.  She covered topics ranging from who the Police are (for kindergarten students) to inclusion and anti-bullying (for our junior students).

Our school had it’s annual Photo Day on October 17 (and not to worry, the photo re-take day is scheduled for November 15th).

As you know, our school was a site for the municipal election held on October 22nd.  We’re pleased to report that the day went smoothly from our school’s side of things.

The ECO school club organized our first “Walk to School Day” on October 19th – thanks to everyone who were able to walk to school on this day (and every other day!).

In terms of school teams,  the boys soccer team and co-ed touch football teams finished their seasons in October with grit, effort and sportsmanship.  The co-ed cross-country team also finished the season with a strong showing, and a huge congrats to Bram who competed in the city championships for cross-country!  The girls’ soccer team capped off their season with an amazing showing at the Conference level, capturing the Championship banner for Division 2!  Congrats girls – way to go!!!!  Huge thanks to the many coaches of the aforementioned teams, including Mr. Eschle, Mr. Khaja, Mr. Hunter and many more!

The month wrapped up with students (and staff) dressed up in a variety of great costumes for Halloween!  It was great to see so many members of our school have some fun, express themselves and get into the spirit with their creative and fun costumes.

November will surely be another busy month with a lot of learning in our classes, plenty of activities and events!

As you know, our SAC updates our school Google calendar on a regular basis. You can find the link to the calendar on the right link page on this web site (you can also find instructions on how to add the calendar to your mobile device).

Here are some dates/events for November:

Nov 7 – Pizza Nova Workshop (portable one with Ms. Brock)

Nov 14 – Progress Reports go home

Nov 15 – Photo Re-take Day

Nov 15 – Evening Parent-teacher Progress Report Interviews
