The Norval fall family open house is a great event to enjoy all that our outdoor school has to offer. Why not make the time to come on out? It’s worth the drive to Norval.

Warm weather dress continues to be an option for boys until the start of the November long weekend. However, as temperatures begin to drop, boys are reminded that hoodies of any sort are not acceptable within our stated dress code. Boys may wear regular dress at any time and, for additional warmth, may only wear approved three-quarter zipped fleece or a school blazer. First dress will be required on the first day of every week immediately after the November long weekend and on special days that will be communicated. Please refer to the Upper School Family Handbook, which is accessible on our website, for details.

Student-led conferences (also known as parent-teacher interviews) are scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 1 and Friday, Nov. 4. Please refer to the detailed entry in the Intermediate Division section on how to book times online.

National Take Your Kid To Work Day for Year 2 boys is on Wednesday, Nov. 2. If you’re planning to have your son take part in this day, please be sure to email Nancy Pyle so that it can be recorded in our system.

Thanks for reading.
