On behalf of all the staff at E.J. Sand Public School, I want to extend a warm welcome to our new E.J. Sand families and a welcome back to our returning students and families. We are excited about the upcoming year of learning.

Be sure to let your child’s teacher know about end of day arrangements (whether they are taking a bus, or getting picked up, or attending the after-school daycare).
See you on Tuesday.

Our pizza lunch days ended last week. Please remember to pack a lunch accordingly.

On Friday, June 23, 2017, the Primary Division, as a component of our physical education program, will be hosting a Play Day (rain date will be Tuesday, June 27, 2017).
We are looking forward to a sunny day filled with fun and excitement. To guarantee an enjoyable day for your child, please ensure s/he is dressed appropriately. We especially recommend a sun hat and sunscreen (please apply the sunscreen in the morning before coming to school). Your child must be wearing running shoes to participate safely in the games. If your child is bringing a water bottle, please make sure it is clearly labelled with their name.
Thank-you in advance for your cooperation.

Our parents and guardians are our strongest partners in education and we want to hear
from you. The York Region District School Board is inviting all parents and guardians to
complete a survey between May 1 and May 19, 2017. This survey provides an important
opportunity for parent/guardian voice and the results will be used to guide planning to
support student achievement and well-being.
Attached are letters in a variety of languages, with a link to complete the survey online. If you prefer to complete a hard copy of the survey, please contact the office.
