Tour for Humanity for Grades 5-8

We are thrilled to announce that the Tour for Humanity, a technologically advanced, state-of-the-art, mobile human rights education centre created by Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre will be visiting our school on December 20th and 21st for our grades 5-8 classes. 

Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) works to counter hate, Antisemitism, and intolerance through education and advocacy; to promote tolerance, justice and human rights through education. Through integrity, co-operation, creativity, leadership, sustainability, stewardship and humility, FSWC strives for a better tomorrow for all Canadians.

The Tour for Humanity is FSWC’s newest educational initiative. Classes will be preparing for its visit by addressing human rights issues from the past and the present. We ask you to talk to your child(ren) about their day and the issues that were discussed before and after the Tour visit. Some of these issues will be sensitive and we will be encouraging each student to ask questions to clarify their understanding.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Tour for Humanity or the content being covered to prepare for the experience, please do not hesitate to contact the office or your child’s teacher.

French Immersion Information Sessions and Registrations

Information sessions for the French Immersion (FI) program will take place at French Immersion schools on January 19, 2017 at 7 p.m. Please visit YRDSB’s website in January 2017 (http://www.yrdsb.ca/Programs/fi/Pages/Program-Locations.aspx) to find the FI program location for your elementary school location. FI registration will begin January 20, 2017. Parents or guardians of Senior Kindergarten students entering Grade 1 in 2017, and wishing to enrol in the FI Program, can visit or call the school office and request an Office Index Card – short version. The Office Index Card must be signed by the principal of the home school. Parents or guardians then take this form, along with one piece of identification showing their address to the designated FI program location to register between January 20 and February 10, 2017. This eliminates the need to provide duplicate enrollment information or to pre-register.

 

YRDSB’s FI Accommodation Plan provides long-term consistency and equity of access to all students in York Region and will enable YRDSB to continue to offer the FI program to all who wish to enroll. The FI program will be offered in Dual Track or Single Track settings, in a variety of configurations. In order to meet community needs and optimize available space in our schools, a community’s Grade 1-8 FI program may be provided over more than one school during the course of a student’s FI education. This will allow flexibility in addressing community needs and the opportunity to use existing space in schools. More information is available on the Board’s website: www.yrdsb.ca. Please note: Some of the FI accommodation plans will require facility modifications or the development of new schools and will require short-term transition plans that might include overflow while we work toward the long-term vision. Overflow refers to situations in which the Board directs students to attend a school other than their community school or optional program for a specific period of time, as defined in Policy #108.
