Heads Up

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

Form 6 welcome letter from PPO

Dear parents of Form 6,

I’d like to welcome you all to the new school year and to let you know that I’ll be your form representative on the PPO. I’d also like to extend a special welcome to our new parents.

My role is to communicate the activities of the Prep Parents’ Organization to all of you and (with our class reps ) to represent the parents. Any concerns or questions you may have can be directed to me or our class reps and we can help you find the answers and appropriate person to speak with.

We’ll look forward to meeting many of you at Curriculum Night on Thursday, Sept. 18.

Please be sure to read Heads Up every week – it’s your most valuable source of information. Also the Prep Calendar posted online is also immensely helpful – please be sure to refer to it as well.

We don’t yet have all of our class reps and we’d very much like to request help from both new and returning parents. This is a great way to get to know your fellow parents and a great introduction to the school community. We endeavour to have one returning parent and one new parent as class reps in each of the classes. Please email me here if this might be of interest to you.

For the start of school, most boys will prefer to wear the fall and spring uniform. Please note that Monday, Sept. 8 is Picture Day and boys are required to wear Number One Dress (white shirt).

With the start of school upon us, I’d like to communicate the following important dates.
