Information about Curriculum Night 2018
Why Curriculum Night?
Curriculum Night is the most important parent education event of the year and we expect that all parents will attend. This is your opportunity to learn about what your child’s class will be experiencing and accomplishing this year. Questions you may have about what is taught and how we teach will be addressed. Although it is not an interview about your child (parent/teacher interviews will take place on November 14 & 21), Curriculum Night gives you the fullest picture of the year your child is in, the teachers your child is with, and the expectations and plans for learning at your child's grade level.
What is the schedule of the evening?
For Curriculum Night 2018 on Wednesday, October 10, entry to the school will be from 45 Walmer Road or 56 Spadina Road at 5:45 pm. If your child is in Nursery to Gr 1, please note that the presentation by the classroom teachers will begin in the classrooms promptly at 6:00pm.

How will we learn about the Specialty Classes (French, Visual Arts, Drama, Phys Ed, Special Ed, Library, Music)?
This year, we are producing short documentaries about each specialty subject. The specialty teachers have described their program and you will be able to glimpse into their classrooms. A link to these videos will be sent out soon. All specialty teachers will be introduced in the gym at 6:50pm on Curriculum Night.
Is there babysitting?
Registration for babysitting is now closed. The deadline was October 8, 2018 to ensure adequate supervision. If your child is registered, a pizza dinner will be provided for the children (ordered from Pizzaiolo - nut free). Please send a water bottle for your child. Thank you to the Parents’ Association for funding the babysitting and pizza!
See you tonight!
