Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Message from Tanya Sweeney

Dear Prep families,

It has been another busy and productive week of learning for our students both at home and at school. 

Each Wednesday morning our Middle Years students and teachers have assembly. Please find this week’s Middle Assembly recording here — and enjoy! My thanks to Gareth Evans for all of the work that goes into this type of assembly. 

A reminder of where families can find their student’s schedule as well as any ‘Family Calendar’ items highlighted by the Prep main office. See a quick screencast here, for how to navigate Bluenet and find that information. If you need any assistance, please contact Crystal Arruda

We are humbled and grateful for all of the food that was donated last week towards our food drive benefiting The Churches On The Hill Food Bank. Thank you to our PPO and employees for their collaboration to organize this endeavour. The need is great, and we will continue to run the drive in the coming days. 

We hope you enjoy some updates this week about what’s happening in Senior Kindergarten, Year 1 and Middle Years Design. 

Primary Years (SK-5) report cards are currently being prepared. We can look forward to an update on Primary Report Cards from Dianne Jojic, our PYP Coordinator, next week. 

Lastly, a reminder to our Year 4 to 7 families of an opportunity to hear from Paul Davis, an Online Safety and Social Media Educator. There are two parent sessions:

December 9 at 7 p.m.

December 11 at 9 a.m.

We will be sending families an email with the Zoom link for the event to reduce the likelihood of any ‘Zoom bombing’ circumstances; please keep your eyes open for that. No registration is required.

Head of the Preparatory School
