Having volunteers truly enhances the learning in our classroom. The HWDSB has a Volunteer Policy in place that requires volunteers to update their information each year they wish to volunteer before they begin volunteering.
Returning Volunteers & New Volunteers:
- All volunteers will need to provide the school with a current (within 6 months of issue) Vulnerable Sector Police check every three years.
- All volunteers will need to submit a completed Volunteer Information Sheet and participate a brief interview to learn about school procedures.
- All volunteers will have to sign an Offence Declaration in years that a new Vulnerable Sector screen is not required.
- All volunteers will have to sign a Volunteer Agreement every year.
- All volunteer drivers will have to complete a Volunteer Driver Agreement every year.
I welcome parents/guardians who would like to volunteer in the classroom assisting in our activities. We also can not go on any school trips if we do not have enough volunteers. Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering.
Mme Kurtz will be having a volunteer orientation on October 16, 2017 at 9:00 am in the Learning Commons. All new and returning volunteers are welcome to join us on October 16 at 9:00 am for orientation or to sign offence declarations. If you are unable to attend, please e-mail, Mme Kurtz, Vice-Principal to set up another time.

We were sorting machines today. As a group we to create a consensus. It was interesting the way that friends interpreted and worked together for clarification.
Grade 1’s are working on sorting items using 1 attribute and grade 2’s are sorting using 2 attributes simultaneously. See if you can guess my sorting rule? Hint you may have to enlarge the picture!
