A Message from the Principal

We hope all of our Tiger Families are enjoying a safe and relaxing summer holiday!

August is upon us and that means that our new school year will be starting very soon.

For our new Kindergarten Families - be sure to check our Kindergarten Registration page (see the list of website pages on the left hand side of this screen) for details about the First Rider Program (Hosted by First Student - Dundalk in Markdale on August 19th) and our First Day of School Routines for Kindergarten Students.

Our office will re-open on Monday, August 21st at 8:30am for the 2017-2018 school year. If you are new to our area, please be sure to call or visit the school as soon as possible to get registered, have a tour and get your bussing in place for the first days of school.

Remember to sign up for our Remind App to get information about bus cancellations and delays or subscribe for direct emails and information from our transportation consortium by logging on to 


On the first day of school students should remain outside until the bell rings. Once the bell rings everyone will return to their homeroom class from last year. Following the morning announcements students will be delivered to their new classroom for the 2017-18 school year.

All new students at our school are invited to the library where you will be greeted by our friendly staff and escorted to your new classroom shortly after the morning announcements.

If our first day of school is a rainy one: All of last year’s Grade 1-8 students may enter the school as they arrive after 8:35am and go directly to their classroom from last year.

All Junior and Senior Kindergarten students (including SK’s moving to Grade 1) will go directly into the gym where they will be met be last year’s educators and directed to their new classes following morning announcements.

As always, we continue to work, learn and play together ensuring that our learners today will become leaders tomorrow!
