Reminder to teachers to please submit receipts for Class allotments no later than this Friday.  Please leave in the CSPC mailbox or pass directly to Tania Zoldak. 

Please be sure to check your inbox for up to date information from our Principal Mrs Ugrin regarding the Work To Rule Strike Action.  Attached is the letter emailed this past week in case you did not get it.  Please email lillian.ugrin@tcdsb.org if you are not receiving her emails so that you can be sure you do not miss anything.  

On June 7th, Mr Vlasscheart and Ms Starr are organizing the second day of our Health & Wellness Event for the Grade K-2’s.  Unfortunately our Health Nurse, Cali Kim, cannot attend that day to run a station that promotes “Washing Hands” and the importance of germ control. However, she has agreed to come in on May 31st to train 2 volunteers to run the station. If you are able to help out as a parent volunteer for this please call Mr Vlasscheart directly at the school or email directly at ryan.vlasschaert@tcdsb.org.
