ESSEX SPIRIT WEAR!

Through the combined efforts of our fantastic community we are able to offer contactless porch pick up for Essex Spirit wear. They are soft and cosy – essential for working from home! Kids love to wear their Essex gear with pride! All money raised goes right back to the school – this year that includes purchasing supplies for outdoor education and supporting the efforts to keep our school safe and open during these Covid measures.
The link below includes prices, sizes, and a photo of each piece.

will be offering language classes to students (TDSB and non TDSB)
in Kindergarten to Grade 8. Students will take part in a remote/at
home learning. Classes run 2.5 hours, one day a week. Students will
have live face-to-face interactive lessons with their instructor and
other students for approximately 30 minutes. Remaining time will
be spent on independent work. Activities will be focused on building
student’s abilities in oral communication, reading and writing.

Please note that a minimum of 23 students is required to open a language class.
