SK - February 14/ 2019


What an event-filled short week! We had a snow-day, Valentine’s Day, a skating excursion and a whole week dedicated to our wellness.

Wellness Week was a big hit with the SKs! We started off with Mindful Morning on Monday, where the SKs spent part of the morning in their The York School Houses and participated in four different mindful activities (from meditation, to a mindful taste experience). On Wednesday, we made beautiful Valentine’s Day cards with our Learning Buddies. Today, we focussed on our physical health at our Great Canadian Outdoor Day - a big thank you to all of you who joined us to help out!


In Music, the SKs drew pictures to show how music makes them feel. These pictures will be put up on the Music room bulletin board. The students also performed their songs about senses.


In PHE, next week the SK’s will be starting a scooter board unit. We will playing games, doing relays and having fun on them.


In French, the students have continued to explore the five senses in French. Please follow the link below to see the song we are singing about the five senses.

Les cinq sens


We hope that you all have a wonderful Family Day and we look forward to seeing you all after the long weekend!

Next Friday will be a B week. SKB will be having PHE on the Friday, SKA will not.

Each year a group of grade 11's travel to India during March Break to volunteer at Global Pathways School. We have a special connection with the school as the founders of the school are the previous Head of York School and Head of the Junior School. Currently, a past Grade 9 ICE teacher, Jim Brickell, is the Principal of Global Pathways School.

The students travelling to GPS enjoy two weeks of volunteering in the classrooms, taking field trips with the classes, enjoying recess on the play structures that have been donated by The York School community and spend time with students in the classes and their homes.

Before departing on this adventure we collect donations to take with us in duffle bags to hand out to the community. This years' wish list is here. If you have any of the following items stored away in your closets and are looking to find a new home for these items, please bring them to The York School, there are bins in the Gathering Place to deposit the items. We will be collecting these items until Monday, February 25th. Many thanks in advance for your donations.
