Roberta Bondar - January Update

Happy New Year! Our first two weeks back from holidays were great!  It’s wonderful to see everyone back at school. We are gearing up for skating on our community rink and our Purple Shirts (Grade 8 student leaders) did a great job organizing the skates.  Our Canadian winters have so much to offer and we do our best to make sure students play outside each day. We follow the OCDSB policy and procedures for extreme weather and thank you in advance for ensuring that your child has the appropriate winter gear with them daily.

Bondar Family Movie Night

The Roberta Bondar School Council is hosting a family Movie Night on Friday, February 1, 2019.

Wear your comfy P.J.s and bring a blanket & pillows. Everyone is Welcome!
