Track and Field Update                  

On Wednesday, May 18th and Thursday, May 19th, students in grades 4-8 had two amazing days participating in Track and Field events. Not only did the weather cooperate, but students also demonstrated such great character- participating in events, encouraging fellow classmates and demonstrating personal bests! We’d also like to thank the Grade 6, 7 and 8 students who helped time runs and measure distances, we couldn’t have had the events run without such responsible helpers!

We look forward to cheering on our 72 amazing Trillium Woods athletes who will be competing at the Area Track and Field Competition at Langstaff Secondary School, on Wednesday, June 15th (Rain date – Thursday, June 16th). Go Tornados Go!

Protect yourself against West Nile virus and Lyme disease!

If you are heading outdoors to keep active, go camping or work in your garden, protect yourself and your family against West Nile virus and Lyme disease. West Nile virus is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito; Lyme disease is spread through the bite of an infected blacklegged tick.

What you can do:
• Cover up when you go outdoors with light coloured long sleeved shirts and pants
• Use an insect repellent containing DEET
• Check yourself and your children for ticks
• Remove attached ticks as quickly as possible
• Clean up standing water around your home where mosquitoes like to breed

You can still enjoy the great outdoors; just remember to Fight the Bite!

For more information about West Nile virus and Lyme disease, including the safe removal of ticks, contact York Region Health Connection 1‐800‐361‐5653, TTY 1‐866‐252‐9933 or visit: or

A Message from Our Trustee

As the school year comes to a close, I would like to thank you for all that you have done to help make this school year a successful one for our students.

We share a common goal - to give our young people every opportunity to reach their full potential, and we all have a role to play in supporting that goal.  However you choose to get involved, your engagement and support make a difference. We know that good schools become better schools when they are connected with families. 

Thanks to the ongoing efforts of our students, families, staff members and community partners, we are creating a welcoming, caring and inclusive learning environment that fosters student achievement and well-being.

As we move into summer, I encourage you to seek out opportunities to continue and complement the learning that takes place throughout the school year.  That could mean taking a nature walk, visiting a museum or reading a book.  Whatever your plans are over the next few months, I hope you have a safe, relaxing and enjoyable summer.
