Our Latest Classroom Project

How well do you know your own brain? 

When one of our students was confronted with this question, she decided to put things in perspective. Using supplies found around the building, we created two and three-dimensional models of the brain. These were colour-coded and mapped to descriptions posted on the bulletin board. 

These types of activities, which happen every month, are extra-curricular. They don't earn anyone any credits, but they do give the classroom a more academic air. 
Community Day this year will be June 4th.

The Parent Trap Returns!

Join Parenting Counsellor Shannon Connelly on June 16th and play The Parent Trap! This all-original human-sized board game begins at 10:00 a.m., and children (toddlers and older) are invited to join in the fun. 

We will be converting Monarch Hall into a labyrinth of board game squares.There are challenges, quizzes, questions and much more. Spaces are limited, so call or drop by and sign up today!

In Canada, over 800,000 people including 300,000 children rely on food banks each month. To help out, CATELLI® has compiled a cookbook - PASTA TO THE RESCUE: Hot Summer Dishes for Busy Families - featuring 15 recipes created by top chefs from coast to coast. 

If you download this cookbook, CATELLI® will donate a portion of pasta to a Canadian food bank! The Ottawa Food Bank has already received 9,120 boxes of pasta from Catelli.

It can be dangerous out there

Phishing is typically an email scam which tries to deceive people into thinking a legitimate organization is requesting private information.

TO PROTECT YOURSELF: Be suspicious of any email or text message containing urgent requests for personal or financial information.  Contact the organization directly using a telephone number from a bill. 

Never email personal or financial information and avoid embedded links in an email claiming to bring you to a secure site. Get in the habit of looking at a website's address line and verify if it displays something different from the address mentioned in the email.

Always report phishing. If you have responded to a suspicious email, report it to info@antifraudcentre.ca
