Scorpion Sizzle – June 21

Yearbooks!

We hope you all enjoy this year’s version of Reflections! A lot of hard work and dedication has gone into putting these memories together! We hope you enjoy walking down memory lane with your child!

Spirit Day

Our final spirit day of the school year is coming up on Monday! It is Disney Day! Dress up in anything Disney, or colourful or dress up as your favourite character!

Final Assembly

We will have one final assembly on June 25th at the end of the day to celebrate Grade 7 Honour Roll as well as Grade 6 & 7 Scorpion Awards. Following the assembly, report cards will be sent home with students.

Yearbooks

Yearbooks are in and will be distributed to all students on Friday. Students will only receive them, however, if they have returned all of their text books and library books. If the items are lost, you will hear from us (if you haven’t already) about cost of replacement.

Thanks everyone! It is an amazing keepsake! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Today at St. Andrew’s Middle School

Dear Parents/Guardians,

At approximately 11:15am, the staff smelled an odour at our school and we had staff and students promptly exit the building.  Toronto Fire Services and Enbridge were called and arrived on the scene.

We remained outside until insert 12:45pm, at which time we were advised by the Fire Department that students and staff could return to the school. We will now continue with our academic school day.

Our cafeteria staff stayed on site, for an extra 50 minutes to allow students to purchase meals, after we were given the all clear to come back into the building.

As you know, the safety of our students is a top priority at our school and we followed appropriate TDSB policies to ensure the safety and well-being of our students. We practice various drills and procedures hoping never to have to use them, but always prepared to do so if necessary.

The response and cooperation from our students and teachers was exceptional and we want to commend them for their efforts. Staff calmly lead students out of the school in an orderly way and ensured that everyone was accounted for.

We also want to thank Toronto Fire for their actions and the TDSB’s staff for their role.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 416-395-3090.

 

Sincerely,

Jessica Feldberg      Ryan Heritage

Principal                   Vice Principal
