A REMINDER FOR THOSE USING THE KISS AND RIDE:

Walk on Wednesday/Marchons mercerdi

May 25th to June 25th is Bike Month in the GTHA

 

Bike month is a celebration in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area with many community events happening www.bikemonth.ca. Cycling is a healthy, low impact exercise that's fun too. While riding is a great way to be physically active and have fun, it is important to remind children to ride safe. By law, every cyclist under the age of 18 must wear an approved helmet. For riders under 16 years old a parent or guardian must make sure their child wears a helmet. Let's continue to walk or roll to school especially on Walk on Wednesdays (WoW/MM)!

 

If you'd like to  help with our WoW/MM events or other School Council initiatves please complete one of our volunteer application forms and submit it to the office. Forms can be found in the main office.

The report will be emailed directly to the school's principal and vice-principal.
