June 4th Pow Wow Experience

Please join us in the school yard on June 4th from 10:00-11:30 for our annual Pow Wow Experience, to celebrate National Indigenous History Month. Our Pow Wow will be performed by the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto “Indigenize Our Minds” educational outreach programme, or IOMEOP.

This is a not for profit program committed to providing an Indigenous perspective to Indigenous history, culture and language in North America to the Toronto community. IOMEOP delivers the understanding of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people by engaging our audience with cultural academic educators through experiential, interactive and holistic learning. All of the presentations meet the requirements of the Ontario Ministry of Education Curriculum and provides Indigenous Cultural Sensitivity training and customized presentations based on the requests of Organizations, Agencies & Businesses.

There will be 4 drummers, 4 dancers, and an opening presentation.

We hope you can come and take part in this Indigenous cultural experience!

GARDEN CLUB IS LOOKING FOR YOUR SHADE PERENNIALS

The Garden Club is once again hard at work creating a perennial shade garden beside the bike racks at the front of the school.  If you were busy gardening this past weekend and have any plants at home that you are splitting or need relocating, consider donating them to our school.  We are looking for hostas, brunneras, lily of the valley, shady ground cover and any perennials that like growing under trees!

Please contact jessica.haber@tdsb.on.ca or tanya.bates@tdsb.on.ca to arrange a drop-off time (Thursday morning works best as we meet Thursdays at lunch) and our students will get planting!
