Message from the Prep Leadership Team
Dear Prep Families,
The past several days have served as an orientation for students as they get reacquainted with old friends and teachers, make new friends, and familiarize themselves with Prep locations and routines. Activities included team-building, a Norval overview, wellbeing discovery, campus tours, an art creation experience, and low organization games. It’s wonderful to see grins peeking out the sides of masks. Student feedback about orientation was very positive. Lastly, we’d like to extend a warm thank you to the PPO for organizing “Freezie Friday” tomorrow.
Next week we look forward to observing Rowan’s Day along with planned Colour House events, small-sided soccer matches and a special assembly. All will take place during the school day, will follow safety guidelines, and will be our Prep way of showing spirit for our traditional fall Association Day (A-Day).
Students should be reminded to wear purple on Wednesday, Sept. 22 to observe Rowan’s Day, and their House colours on Friday, Sept. 24 for celebrating the 2021 version of A-Day. Go Blue!
For your convenience, here again is our UCC Family Handbook.
Upcoming key dates:
Rowan’s Day observed: September 22 (students wear purple)
Primary parent information evening: September 23
Association Day-inspired celebrations (students wear their House colours): September 24

These dates are all in the Prep calendar, which you will find in Bluenet.

Thank you for your partnership!
Prep Leadership Team
