A glimpse into my first 100 days

September 30th not only marked Orange Shirt Day recognizing and honouring the survivors of residential schools or the TDSB's Terry Fox runs but also my first 100 days in office. While not nearly as significant as the other occasions, it is a milestone and so I wanted to share with you some photos, numbers, and accomplishments. We have a lot of work to do this year and I look forward to working in partnership with you and the other parents/guardians, community members, students and staff to follow through on my commitment to being responsive, engaging and accountable!

Incident Advisory

The Ward 14 team and I just wanted to provide you with an advisory regarding events which happened this week.

Earlier this week, Toronto Police arrested John Pate, an occasional teacher who was working at another TDSB school this year, on charges related to sexual misconduct. Mr Pate previously worked at Sprucecourt PS as a supply teacher and ECE during the 2015-2016 school year. He also served as an ECE for the 2013-2014 school year. However, the charges date back to 2009 and do not involve any incident at our school. More information about the charges will be included in a media release from Toronto Police. Visit http://www.torontopolice.on.ca/newsreleases to see that release when it is posted.
