Thank you to those of you who provided feedback on your child's learning profile. Our team of teachers, along with the administration, worked collectively to place children in a classroom that best supports their learning style. Peer groups are taken into consideration with respect to learning and collaboration. Our goal is to form classes of children who support each other on their road to success.

Our class placements are tentatively completed for the 2016-2017 school year, though changes do occur from now until September. For this reason, students and parents can expect to be advised of their placement when they arrive on the first day of school, in September.


We are pleased to share that the TDSB's 2016-17 final budget includes funding to continue operating three school pools, including Brown's, during day school hours for the coming school year. Earlier this year, the City of Toronto had decided to stop funding these three pools.

Over the coming months, the TDSB will also be in discussions with the City about city-run pools in school buildings. The City currently pays to operate 33 school pools in order to offer after school and weekend swim programs at these locations.  The current agreement for pool operations comes due in July 2017. We will share information with you about the outcome of this process between the city and TDSB and any impact this may have for our pool.

Please remember that dogs are not allowed on school property, no matter how cute or friendly. Dogs cannot be in our play areas nor in the school.


There is NO safe drop-off zone on Avenue Road.

1. Stopping on Avenue Road to let a child out of the car is extremely unsafe.

2. The North Driveway of the school is NOT ACCESSIBLE to parents. This area needs to be reserved for AUTHORIZED users only.

Please think twice before using either of these areas to drop off your children. WE HAVE CONTACTED POLICE SERVICES TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE AND THEY WILL BE MONITORING THE DRIVEWAY AND AVENUE ROAD.

Driving around the block is a pain, but is it worth a life?
