VPPS End of School Year Message

Just a few more days until the end of another school year. As a community, we have been through a lot together and have pulled together to always make the best of every situation. Thank you for supporting us at school and for helping us to build a community of kids who know they are valued – that they matter and they belong here at VPPS.

This week we will be saying farewell to our Grade 8 students – many of whom have been with us since grade 1. We wish them well as they head off to high school and hope that they carry with them the valuable experiences they have had at VPPS. Congratulations Grade 8’s! Thank you to everyone who contributed to an amazing Graduation.

This week we will also be saying farewell to some of our VPPS staff who will be moving to other opportunities across YRDSB and beyond. We are grateful for the ways they have contributed to the lives of students and staff here at Ventura Park. Thank you and best wishes to M. Cohen, Mme Forde, Mme Critch, Mme Kazdan, Mme Palfi & to Mme Denis who will be retiring at the end of this school year.

Ventura Park Track & Field

We wanted to extend a big CONGRATULATIONS to all students in Grades 4 to 8 who participated in our Track & Field events today. It was amazing to see everyone competing and having fun with friends after a long pause due to the pandemic.


Students made good use of shady areas on the field as well as our cooling station in the gym to beat the heat we had today. The cooler areas helped keep everyone in fine form for their events. The results from the events are still being tabulated, and will be announced to students very soon!

A very big THANK YOU goes out to all of the teachers who worked so hard to organize today’s events and help them run smoothly all day, as well as the high school volunteers from Bill Crothers who came to assist. The day was a success because of your hard work and dedication. Merci bien!
