Grade 7 Field Trip

Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 7 students,

Welcome to the Senior Division at Fern!

An overnight trip at the beginning of the year has been part of our Grade 7 tradition for many years. It is a great opportunity for all Fern students to get to know each other outside their regular classrooms. Your child will be involved in cooperative games and physical activities in an outdoor environment while developing their leadership and teamwork skills.

This October we are going back to Pinecrest Camp from October 6th to October 8th. The estimated cost of the trip is around 200 dollars.

Camp Pinecrest is a YMCA camp that has hosted numerous TDSB schools on overnight trips. Some of the outdoor activites offered and lead by experienced staff include Canoeing, Archery, High and Low Ropes, and Nature Walks. The site has heated cabins where our students will sleep in groups of 10. All of the meals at YMCA Camp Pine Crest are pre-approved by a nutritionist and accommodate all dietary concerns.

For further information about the camp or our trip please look at the YMCA web-site: http://www.ymcagta.org/en/camps/overnight-camps/pinecrest-overview/index.html

Permission forms with detailed information will be handed out early September.

We would like all Grade 7 students to join us on this trip; financial help may be available if needed. For additional inquires about the trip or if you have any financial concerns please e-mail me at bogdan.nikolajevic@tdsb.on.ca or you can reach me by phone at the school (416-393-9130).

Important Changes to TTC Photo ID Cards

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Effective September 01, 2014 the TTC will no longer produce the student Photo ID card. As a result TTC will not be visiting Fern Avenue PS on September 16th as scheduled.

If your child is 13-15 years old, no ID is required, just have them pay the student fare.

For further information, please visit ttc.ca

Thank you.

Deadline extended: Your family can still sign up for Maggie’s yummy and healthy lunches in September!

If you haven't already signed up for Maggie’s yummy and nutritious lunches in September, you still can. With full-time kindergarten beginning at Fern, there are slight changes to signing up for the hot lunch program that may have been overlooked.

The Food Committee will be handling the administration of the 2014-2015 lunch orders for:

-all kindergarten students (including those in Ferncliff Daycare); please note that kindergarten students will be eating lunches in their classroom
-school-age children who are not enrolled in Ferncliff (with the exception of those enrolled in the school-age 9+ program)
-Lunches for Ferncliff Daycare children in pre-school and aged 6-8 will be processed by Ferncliff.

In order to allow new Fern families to enroll in the hot-lunch program, and to give another opportunity for all students to start the school year off with delicious and nutritious lunches, the FINAL deadline for September lunches has been extended to Friday, August 15.

· For more details about the 2014-2015 lunch program, click here.
