Thank you for joining us at Curriculum Night!

We would like to thank all the parents, guardians and students for helping to make the Curriculum Night a very successful event! There was a great turn-out on Thursday evening. It is because of the strong role that you play in your children’s learning journeys, that make events such as this a success! We appreciate the effort that you put into ensuring your children work hard in school, maintain great attendance and strive to achieve success every day and every year!

Our Smart Bin is Here!

Subject line: Ventura Park implements a recycling program for small electronic devices.

Ventura Park is proud to announce the installation of an Electrobac that will allow students and parents to recycle their out-dated or non-functional electronics. Electrobac being certified by the Recycler Qualification Office (RQO), we assure you that all electronics collected are redirected to companies that are approved and in compliance with Canadian standards, to be recycled safely, securely and responsibly. You can find the Electrobac in front of the main office.

The Electrobac recycles a wide variety of small electronic devices including cell phones, cameras, MP3 players, ink cartridges, computer peripherals, headphones and chargers among many others. Over 100 different types of electronics can be recycled in the Electrobac. For more information about recyclable items, please visit http://www.electrobac.com.

Electronic waste usually contains lead, mercury and other harmful components. Help us preserve the environment by recycling as much electronic waste as possible!

For any questions or comments about the Electrobac or the recycling program, please contact Electrobac via electrobac.com or facebook.com/Electrobac/  

Reminders: Religious Holidays

Many of our families will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in the     coming weeks.  Please make sure that you log into Edsby to report your child’s absence on those days.  This can be done at any time.  If a student is away on a religious holiday and parents have not reported their absence ahead of time, we will still need to call parents to get confirmation on that day that they are safe at home.  You can avoid this disruption to your holiday by being sure to report the absence ahead of time. 

Thank you!
