Friday File

June 18th, 2021

It’s hard to believe that this is the final Friday File of this academic year. Our community’s resilience and positive spirit through every school day (online or on campus) has been truly inspiring. While we wish we could conclude the year together in person, we know that classes will find fun and creative ways to celebrate together on the last day of classes – June 22nd. 

We also look forward to celebrating our wonderful students in our “Virtual Closing and Grade Eight Graduation.” The interactive ceremony programme (which includes links to speech videos and slide showcases) may be enjoyed asynchronously and as many times as families would like. A programme link will be emailed to all families on Wednesday. 

The FDS Yearbook has captured a very unique year through colourful and heartwarming photos. We look forward to sharing it with you. When you arrive for your book drop-off and locker clean-up, please remember to pick up a yearbook! We encourage all families to make an appointment (even those with nothing to drop off) so that they can receive a yearbook. 

Drop-off/clean-up dates will be June 22 to 25 (4 days total). Each family (1 person representing each family) will book a 15-minute timeslot. Please email frontdesk@fieldstoneschool.org to book an appointment. Appointment bookings can be made until June 18. Any items still unclaimed by July 30th will be donated.  

Please follow the procedure outlined below to ensure that your visit is safe and efficient.

  • Wear a mask. 
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please use Door 5 (the Grade Two to Eight door at the southwest corner of the school).
  • Use sanitizer upon entering the building (there is a pump located at the entrance). 
  • Sign in and out at Door 5, filling out a screening survey while there.
  • Practise physical distancing. 
  • Return textbooks to each student’s classroom cubby, slot, or shelf.  
  • Please use the garbage bins in the hallways to dispose of locker waste. 
  • Please return library materials to the library. There will be a table outside the library. 
  • If you rented a violin through the school (with Remenyi House of Music), please return it to the Music Room. If your violin is from Long and McQuade, please contact Long and McQuade regarding return arrangements. 
  • Please leave any uniform donations with Ms. Ellis at Door 5. 

The health and well-being of our Fieldstone Family is of paramount importance to us. Individuals 12-17 years of age in Ontario are now eligible to register for a vaccination appointment. Individuals aged 12 and over at the time of vaccination are also eligible to book an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at select pharmacies that offer the Pfizer vaccine. Please see this Fact Sheet regarding the COVID-19 vaccine for ages 12-17. We are also sharing THIS recent letter from Toronto Public health related to youth vaccination.

For those of you planning for next year, please see THIS flyer regarding a promotion from our uniform supplier, DGN.  

Finally, we wish our “Fieldstone fathers” a very special “Father’s Day” on Sunday.  

Kind regards, 

Ms. Wong and Ms. Martin

Cambridge Papers 

Cambridge Progression Papers are based on the material covered throughout the academic year in Mathematics and Science for students in Grade Three and in English, Mathematics, and Science for students in Grades Four to Eight.  

Teachers will be working with students to complete the Progression Papers between June 11 to June 21. Teachers will use an approach that is best suited for each individual class to administer these papers.
