Front doors will be locked during school day starting in September

August 21, 2014 by · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Starting on September 2, our front door will be locked during the school day. All other school doors are also locked.  To access the building, visitors will need to press the intercom button located to the right of the door.

Staff in the office will be responsible for letting visitors into the school. It’s one more way we can keep track of who is visiting our school. It will help us ensure all visitors sign in at the office.

Please understand that staff may not be available to answer the door immediately. There may be a wait.

I wanted to make sure you were aware of this security enhancement at our school. This same feature will be in place at all SCDSB elementary schools.  As always, if you have any questions, please call or visit the office.  Our office reopens Monday, August 25 at 8:30 a.m.

Hope to see you soon.

Would your child like to learn to play violin, viola or cello?

July 9, 2014 by · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Fifteen students who will be in Grades 3-8 in September at Huron Park have the opportunity to learn to play one of these instruments next year thanks to Sistema Huronia Academy.  This local non-profit group has been working for two years to get the project off the ground and our students are going to benefit.  We thank the hardworking volunteers of Sistema Huronia Academy for their vision and commitment.

Students will get two-hours of instruction on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:30 at Huron Park Public School from a qualified music teacher.  The program will run for approximately 35 weeks.  There is no cost to families for the program.  The only requirement is that students are interested and that students and families are willing to make the time commitment to the program.

If you are interested in registering your child, please contact Mrs. Lethbridge via email at [email protected] or call and leave a message at school and she will get back to you. 705-526-5300 X24252

Again, there is no cost to families for this program as it is completely funded through fundraising, community/business sponsorship and the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

Every student in Ontario is required to complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to receive his/her secondary school diploma. Since July 1, 2011, students have been able to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter Grade 9.

We encourage our 46 Grade 8 graduates to get out there and help with the various events and activities happening in the great town of Midland.

We encourage the community to make possible community involvement activities known to our grads.
