What's Happening at University School | Apr. 17




Family Garden Club Planning, April 18 from 3:30 -4:30 pm
Last fall many families helped us clean up the front gardens which were quite overgrown.  We pruned and removed foliage and now have a fresh canvas to to create an inspirational outdoor learning space.  We are looking for families who are interested in helping with the designing of the garden space.  This may involve transplanting or removing some plants and planting new ones.  You don’t need to have a green thumb but be willing to help us out.  If any one has horticultural knowledge or knows someone that is willing to advise us, please let us know.  RSVP to Kathy Salmon at


Earth Day Picnic and Pond Walk April 21 12:15
It’s Earth Day on Saturday April 22 so we are celebrating on April 21 with a student council Spirit Day.  We will be having an Earth Day Family Picnic and Pond Walk during the lunch hour.  Since the focus is on taking care of our planet we are asking everyone to bring a litterless lunch.  That means we ask you to pack your food in containers that you can reuse or recycle. We will have composters outside as well.  Student Council would like everyone to wear green, blue or brown or other earthy colours to show your school spirit.  Please dress for the weather and walk, bring picnic blankets, and bring a litterless lunch.


Learning Commons Visioning - Imagine the Possibilities, April 27 6-7 pm
Parents/Guardians are invited to join UES staff for a visioning session for our Learning Commons.  The Learning Commons is the heart and hub of our school.  We would like to continue to evolve how we utilize the space to support student learning.  Optimal utilization comes with understanding what we value, what we need in the space and how we design it to inspire student creativity and critical thinking.  Please come with your ideas!  RSVP to Kathy Salmon at


Tin Forest - April 26 - school wide building challenge during the school day

On Wednesday, April 26, our school will be taking part in the Tin Forest Challenge, which will be a collaborative school-wide building challenge   We’d appreciate your support by sending us your “tin” donations before the 26th.  We don’t want anyone to go out and buy tin, but we would appreciate your cleaned out tin cans, end of the roll tin foil, paper clips, clean pie/tart tins, or anything else made of metal that is clean and just sitting around the house.  The more we receive the more our tin forest can grow.   Please send your donations with your child to school and their teacher will collect them.  Thanks so much for your support!!  The University School Team.


SCHOOL COUNCIL – THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2017 – 6:45pm - 8:30pm
