Heads Up

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

Message from Tanya Sweeney, Head, Preparatory School

Dear Prep Families,

Thank you for our continued collaboration. I feel grateful this week for the efforts of our Arts Department, particularly Paul McGarr and Caroline Heo, for a wonderful Bluenote Jazz Cafe in Weston Hall. I’m also grateful for the collaboration with our Upper School students and colleagues, and the operational support of Monika Kastelic, one of our two Arts subject coordinators. We have wonderful young musicians here at UCC!

Thank you to parents who are able to support our community-building efforts by attending the various events we host. This week included the Year 4 Parent coffee session with Principal McKinney and myself, as well as the first in our Prep Discussion Series hosted by Toronto Police Services Detective and UCC parent, Corey Jones. We look forward to creating further opportunities this year and into the next, to host discussions that are informative and that reflect the values of Upper Canada College and the families who choose our community. 

The remaining Parent coffee sessions are currently being calendared and we will reach out with more information soon.

With my thanks,

Tanya Sweeney
Head of the Preparatory School
