QSP Family Reading Fundraiser
This year's QSP Family Reading Fundraiser
runs from September 23rd to October 14th,
Not only does this campaign help raise
much needed funds, but it also promotes literacy.

We are looking for perennials!
We would like to add a few
more perennials around the school.
We are looking for hostas,
sedums (stone crop), centaurea
cyanus (cornflower or bachelor's
button) and rudbeckia (black-eyed
Susan). If you have these plants in your
garden and would like to share them
with us, we will plant them!
Please contact us at the school.
Thank you!  Merci!
Ms. Toohey, Mrs. Daley, 
and Mme Labonté

Student Accident Insurance
 Creating a caring and safe environment for our
students is our top priority. Unfortunately, despite all
reasonable precautions being taken, accidents can
still happen. Some injuries may result in
medical, dental or other expenses that are
not covered by provincial health care
or employer group plans. As a parent/guardian,
you become responsible for these expenses.
 Student accident insurance is available for
purchase, on a voluntary basis, through Reliable
Life Insurance
Company. Forms can
either be picked up from the school office
or downloaded at
or you may apply online at

Upcoming Speaker Series
The OCDSB Speaker Series offers free
presentations to the community and seeks
to provide parents and educators with
access to leading ideas in education that will
allow us to work collaboratively to better
support student learning.
