Dear parents and students of the Upper School:

I hope that this finds you well and enjoying the respite of the summer holidays with your family. This mailing includes information and important action items that will help you and your son in his transition to the new academic year at Upper Canada College. On behalf of all of us at the Upper School, I look forward to your arrival to start another remarkable year in the history of UCC. Welcome!

To filter information in this mailing, you can click on your son’s grade. Please review it carefully and mark important dates on your calendar.

Before closing, I would like to draw your attention to important dates in the Fall term:

Curriculum Night on Thursday, Sept. 17

All parents kick off curriculum night at 6:30 p.m. Attendance is strongly recommended. You’ll then proceed through your son’s timetable and meet each of his subject teachers to learn about curriculum content and expectations. You’ll be reminded of this evening near the start of school, but please plan on it ending sometime around 9 p.m. or a bit later. Refreshments will be available during the evening in the classroom corridors.
