Dear Fieldstone Community,  

We hope everyone got a chance to see the fantastic Fieldstone String Orchestra at the Marlies game on Wednesday, April 10. We are so proud of our students! A huge thank you to the parents who came to make it a ‘Fieldstone Day’ at the game and to Mr. Morales, without whom this would not have been possible!  

We hope you have signed up your child/ren’s friends for our ‘Buddy Day at Fieldstone’ – we look forward to welcoming them into our wonderful community for the day.  

We also hope you are as excited as we are about the events coming up, where we will get a chance to see the talents of our amazing students. First up is the Spring Showcase! Please take a few moments to fill out the RSVP Survey if you haven’t already done so. 

Our students and teachers have also been working diligently to prepare for the ‘Soirée Musicale à Fieldstone’ and Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ More details will be shared with parents in the coming weeks!  

Our Intramural Sports Club will soon be participating in events to compete with other schools. As members of the Small Schools Athletics Federation (SSAF), we are looking forward to providing opportunities to our athletes for sporting and athletic glory! Parents are requested to take a few moments to fill out the SSAF Parents Form 

Monday, April 22, is Earth Day. Students and staff members are encouraged to celebrate and show their support by wearing blue and/or green to school. On Tuesday, April 23, we are celebrating World Book Day. Students (and staff!) are invited to come dressed as their favourite book or character. Let’s celebrate the privilege of living on this beautiful planet and the privilege of being able to read!  

Have a wonderful weekend.

Health Advisory 

Recently, TPH announced an investigation of a confirmed case of measles linked to travel. This virus continues to spread in many parts of the world. If you are planning to leave the country over March Break, get the best protection for you and your loved ones by staying up to date with your routine vaccines, including the measles vaccine. These vaccines are available from your primary health care provider or at a TPH community clinic for school-aged children by appointment. Visit for more information. If you are unsure of your child’s vaccination status, check their yellow card (Ontario Immunization Record), TPH’s Immunization Connect Ontario (ICON) or speak with their primary health care provider.  

Please read the letter from Toronto Public Health HERE.

Character Counts! Pins Programme 

Character building is important at Fieldstone, where we truly believe that character counts. The Character Counts! programme has found that there are at least six values that should be taught to all children. These are known as the “Six Pillars of Character”. Fieldstone students work diligently towards earning their Character Pins (photos on the right). We are very proud of them! Several students have been working diligently on their Character pins! You can find out more about the Character Counts Pin Programme HERE. If your child would like to participate in this wonderful programme, please ask your child to see Ms. Butcher. 

Curriculum Matters – November 2023
