Message from the Prep Leadership Team

Dear Prep Families,

It has been another busy week at the Prep, with Terry Fox activities and our observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Please enjoy the recordings of our Primary and Middle assemblies from this week.

Settling-in conferences take place with your child’s form adviser tomorrow — Friday, October 1. If you have any scheduling concerns at this point, please reach out directly to your child’s form adviser.

If your child is in Years 3 through 7, watch your email for information about the ISA testing coming from Kathryn Barnes, director of the Wernham West Centre for Learning.

We are excited to be bringing to you an opportunity for parent socials. These socials are being organized by our Prep Parents’ Organization (PPO) and colleagues leading UCC’s community relations efforts.

With October on our doorstep, we will begin planning some Halloween festivities. More information will follow, but you can start planning the costume with your child! Anticipate expectations around masking and accessory safety.

Please note our early dismissal day on Friday, October 8; employees will spend the time engaged in professional development.
