Dear Junior School Parent,

It is hard to believe that we are in the home stretch, such wonderful year of learning! It's been a whirlwind; and, we look forward to the many planned events taking place next week which will honour and celebrate our many accomplishments. 

Many thanks are extended to Andrea Hughes and her team of faculty and staff for ensuring that we end this year with a sense fun and celebration.

UNIFORM GUIDE FITTING APPOINTMENTS REMINDER

For new and transitioning families that need to, we hope that you have booked your uniform fitting for June 10, 11 or 12.  

Our contract with Top Marks is coming up for review at the end of next year. As a result, beginning in September 2019, a uniform committee is being established to determine what updates/or new uniform options will be be available for the 2020/2021 school year and onward.

Hence, please keep in mind that the uniform pieces you purchase for 2019/2020 may only be required for one school year. As such, we wanted to make it as easy and as inexpensive as possible for you to move into the next phase of our school uniform.

With respect to parents of JK/SK, beginning in September 2019 we have decided that the PHE uniform can be worn everyday by JK and SK students. You may, however, purchase other uniform pieces should you wish.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kate at kboynton@yorkschool.com .

For a complete list of uniform items, please read the Uniform Guide.

All uniform items must be purchased online through TopMarks:

1. Visit https://topmarksorders.ca/
2. Go to “Online Orders”
3. Enter school code: YOR01
4. Create your account
5. Take your own measurements or book a fitting appointment June 10, 11 or 12, 2019. The fitting appointments will take place at the Junior School Cafeteria at 1639 Yonge Street.

Topmarks has also prepared an order form package outlining the process. The link can be found here  


SAVE THE DATE - FUN DAY! JUNE 13

We are looking for volunteers for this event - we couldn’t do it without all of your amazing help! 
Please see all available time slots and activities here. Please feel free to sign up for more than one-time slot.

Students will walk from the school to Oriole Park between 9:45 am - 10 am to take part in face painting, games, crafts and much more! At lunchtime they will return to school at staggered times to enjoy a YPA-sponsored Pizza Lunch and visit from the Ice Cream Truck.
