The Home Stretch!

I can’t believe we are less than one week away from ending this incredible school year! A few reminders for the next few fun-filled days.


Friday, June 21, 2019

Dress Down Day! Students can wear their own clothing, but must remember to bring in a loonie or toonie if they want to wear non-uniform clothing. It is our Raptors Day, so if you have Raptors clothing, feel free to wear them! We will also be having our infamous Faculty vs Grade 8 Baseball game. Students will be outside watching this game, so they must come to school with a hat and sunscreen so they will not be uncomfortable sitting in the sun.

At 3:05, we will also be having the K-5 Family Kabbalat Shabbat. If you’re available, please join us in the gym for our final Shabbat of the school year, together.

Field trip to House of Commons, the Senate, and Museum of History. If you have not filled in the permission form, please do so. The form can be found below. We will be dropped off by bus at the House of Commons. We will then walk to the Senate for our second tour. Finally, we will be walking over to the museum where we will be having lunch outside.

Students do not need to wear uniforms, but they still need to follow our dress code. We will be walking a lot, so comfortable clothing and shoes are important. Check the weather in advance so we are all prepared!

Students should bring snacks and lunch, especially those who normally get hot lunch on Mondays. Their lunch will be waiting for them when we get back to school, but they will still need to eat while we are out and about.

If students want to take pictures, especially for the purpose of documenting their learning, and as long as we have permission, they may bring phones or small devices to take pictures.

We will be cleaning out our lockers, so please bring one or two large, reusable bags.

Too Soon to Say Goodbye

It’s hard to believe that the year is almost done and we will soon be saying goodbye to our AMAZING shinshinim, Liam and Inbar.

While we will be having a smaller, more intimate goodbye at school (on their last day with us) there is also a community-wide farewell party that we are all invited to at the JCC. We encourage you all to come and join us, as part of our OJCS family, to show our appreciation and support for this wonderful program, which continues to inspire our Jewish journey and provides a direct and meaningful connection to Israel.


Please RSVP to Kara Goodwin


Hope to see you all there!

A Class Full of Bloggers … and you’re invited to join us!

Our student blogs have been launched and are well on their way! Students have been busy customizing, personalizing, and populating their blogs. They’ve also started to read and comment on each other’s blogs. Please make sure to use the links in the side menu to see what your children and their classmates have been up to. It helps add value for them if you comment, following our commenting rules.


And as always, blogging is not for naught. Please read the letter below, mark your calendars, and let me know if you’ll be able to join us. Don’t worry if not! We will find alternate ways for you to participate and share with us.
