How quickly this year has passed!  Students were engaged in daily learning tasks and participated in clubs and spirit days chosen by student voice representatives.  Our families helped us celebrate our learning during monthly assemblies, an art evening and a family dance!  Our school was painted and we have indoor plants and a beautiful felting piece in our hallways.  We have learned about ourselves and others and collaborated to make Thorncliffe School a strong learning community!  We say farewell to our grade six students and some staff members. 
We look forward to those students returning on September 5, 2017.  Please meet outside on the compound where class lists and room numbers will be posted.  We will hold a “Meet the Teacher” evening on Thursday, September 7, 2017.
