Introducing a Mindful Lunchroom

There will be a mindful lunch opportunity in room 323 throughout the month of February. We recognize the number of students who might desire a quieter lunch eating experience and consequently we are piloting an alternative space. 

Find Your Joy - February 7

For the second year, we will spend the assembly period (60 minutes) engaged in activities that promote well being. Grade 6-10 students have been asked to select from a list of activities ; yoga, singing, walking, photography, puzzles and problems, chess, guided imagery, running, reading to name a few. There is something for everyone.

Device Free Day - Feb 15

All teachers and students are asked to have a school day without screens.  We are returning to paper- pen/pencil, discussion/conversations, drama activities, debates, art based activities.  This means no cellphones during lunch.  If you need to reach your child, please call our assistant Sally Warren at 416 926-1325 #1111 and the message will be relayed.
