Hello Boyne PS Families.

A few items to share with you this week, starting with a huge thank you.  We loved seeing you at the Open House last night at the school. So many happy students and families travelling to see wonderful classrooms and staff.  Thank you for taking time out of your busy week to come spend some time with us.

We open our library up to you once a month for a great parent session we call Community Connections. 

We are very excited for our first Boyne Community Connections Sessions to begin. We have many important items on the agenda.

Date: Thursday Oct. 18th

Time: 9 AM - 10:30 AM

-Student Led Conferences 

-School Council

-Report Cards

-Volunteering at the school


-Special Education and ESL

Our Settlement Specialist will be here to explain her role and how she can help you settle here in Milton.  We also invite you to join our Boyne Parent Group on google+ where we post events, information and resources for parents.  Our parking lot is an active place, filled with students crossing and vehicles picking up other students. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for your family. For ease, we recommend that families park their vehicle north of the school, across Louis St. Laurent, and walk over to the school.

We are also excited to announce that we have partnered with our friends at Halton Region to offer the Triple P-Positive Parenting Program for parents of children 3-6 years of age.  More information is provided in this flyer attachment.

And finally, asking for some assistance in regards to our messaging about Treasures and Toys.  Students at Boyne PS know that bringing treasures and toys from home to our school can create difficulty for us.  Some of our students do not have the means to have the same kinds of treasures.  Some of our toys get in the way of learning time and must be put aside by the teacher until home time.  But most importantly, treasures and toys can not be replaced if they are lost, damaged or stolen.  We encourage all students to keep what they consider 'treasures' at home.  Thank you for your help with this messaging.  We are noticing students coming to school with the shoes that have small wheels inside.  These shoes are not appropriate for the school environment and should be kept at home.
