Shine A Light

Saturday May 1st is “SHINE A LIGHT” in honour of Doctors’ Day. At 9:00 pm tomorrow, shine a light to tribute the thousands of doctors and front line workers that are working even harder these days to support Ontario. At Sunnybrook, every child produced a “STAR” with a quote on it, to recognize their star in their world right now. We posted the stars in the front windows of the school to celebrate and give thanks to our front line workers! Drive by the school to see all the stars from SBS.

Author Visit – Loretta Garbutt

The Parents Association hosted an Author Visit this week for JK-Grade 2 classes. Ms Garbutt came to present her new book “A Stopwatch From Grandpa”. It was a lovely presentation about how to remember someone you love. She also shared the illustrator’s pictures and color palate with the students. It was interesting to hear the thought process behind creating a story.
