Relieve some of the stress of getting your children to school - sign them up for the Walking School Bus!

See below for more information.


**Walking School Bus is Just Around the Corner! This is a new pilot project to help kids get to school safely. This involves a group of students walking to school together along a specific route with planned stops and a regular schedule.  The best part is that the group of children will be walking to school under adult supervision by an individual that has been hired by the Ottawa Safety Council!  There is a limited number of spots so register soon.  The registration process involves TWO steps.  Step 1: register online (see link) Step 2: print the registration, sign it and submit it to the school office.  This pilot project will run from September 29th to December 19th. Go to www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/resources/safe-routes for more info, including route map and registration forms.  Don't miss this opportunity!  It's a safe, convenient, healthy and fun way for your child to travel to school with their friends!

In the Spring, parents and students (grade 4-8) were asked to complete an online survey  ("Tell Them From Me") about bullying and other related topics.  Click here for the results: Grade 4-6, Grade 7-8, Parents.  These results and our resulting plan of action will be shared with the School Council in the Fall.


We will be doing magazine subscriptions again the Fall (the money raised paid for all of our amazing arts shows).  If you are looking to renew a subscription, click here for more info.
