Message from the Principal and Vice-Principal 

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

We hope you had a productive and rejuvenating Wellness Wednesday. As we approach mid-term reports, self-care, organization, and determination are required for a successful learning experience. 

We are excited to see co-curricular activities back in full force. The Card Club has been meeting analyzing strategy and probability of popular card games. The Coding Club has been pushing through Code Academy’s Python 2 and working together to discuss and troubleshoot problems. Many students have enjoyed drop-in gym time after school on select nights to make some new friends and get some exercise. Finally, our Prefects have been discussing some exciting Halloween activities. We cannot wait to see their ideas and to enjoy some safe and healthy activities. 

On November 4, Edge Imaging will be returning to Fieldstone to take graduation photos for Grade Twelves planning on graduating this year and photo retakes for students who were not satisfied with their photos. If you wish to have your photo retaken, or you missed our first Photo Day in September, please email our front desk with your name and grade by October 27 to secure your spot.

We wish you a restful and productive weekend.

Sincerely,

Ms. Ginie Wong and Mr. Brian Munshaw

FIELDSTONE SCHOOL’S COVID-19 IMMUNIZATION DISCLOSURE POLICY
As announced on August 17, 2021, an immunization policy will be required for all publicly-funded school board employees, staff in private schools and licensed child care settings and other individuals frequently in these settings who may have direct contact with students and/or staff, for the 2021-2022 school year.

Achieving high immunization rates in Ontario’s schools through vaccination is part of a range of measures and actions that can help prevent and limit the spread of COVID-19 in schools and supports our goal of keeping schools open and safe for in-person learning.
