Dear Ventura Park Families,
As our school year is almost finished, we want to take a moment to celebrate all of our Ventura accomplishments. This year we were able to increase the technology for students, support healthy snack program, sponsor X Movement, fund part of graduation, and support other initiatives.
School Council wouldn’t be able to do this without your help and our parent volunteers who assist with pizza, subs and other events during the year. – Thank you!
I would like to thank the members of our School Council, who helped gather our community together for various events.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Julie Stein and Pam Braude for all their time, effort, creativity, and long hours! These two, along with many parent volunteers worked extremely hard to make our Fun Fair a huge success once again.
Also, BIG thanks to our school admin and school staff for supporting council’s initiatives.
On behalf of the school council I wish you and your families a safe and fun summer!
See you in SEPTEMBER!
VPPS School Council Chair

Please see the message from our Transportation Department:
As I’m sure some of you are aware, there is a full road closure of Major Mackenzie Dr just east of Avro Rd/McNaughton Rd and it is causing delays to some of our school routes.
Because this is a main arterial roadway, it is impacting routes that not only service stops in the area but also need to travel through the area to get from one school run to another. So even if your school does not have stops/students here, you may still be impacted depending on an earlier school run that operates in the area.
We have asked the bus companies to let us know if there are any major concerns and will continue to send daily reminders to have the delays posted on the Late Bus Report (as I know some were missed this morning & yesterday).
We expect to experience delays until the end of the school year, but please let me know if you are experiencing major concerns with a particular route. Unfortunately, the detour options are limited in this area and the buses are travelling with all the rest of the traffic that is using the same detours.
Here is some information for parents regarding the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme in YRDSB:
On Tuesday June 10, and Wednesday June 11, Over 130 VPPS Vikings athletes competed at the CEC West Area Athletics Championships held at Vaughan Secondary School.
The team was coached by Mr. Babin and Mme Forde on both days, and supported by Mr. Arro on Tuesday and Mr. Foster on Wednesday. Un gros MERCI to our Awesome VPPS staff!!!
