We would like to thank our teachers for organizing interviews over the last two weeks. These meetings are important as both teachers and parents are key players in helping students be successful. Parents have an opportunity to ask questions about their child's program and teachers can share what they have observed.
Please save the dates for our holiday concerts:
- Dec 14th @ 6:15 am - Kindergarten (Bessborough Large Gym)
- Dec 15th @ 6:45 pm - Grades 1-8 (Leaside Auditorium)

Students who are arriving late after the morning bell and after the lunch bell are to report directly to the office, not their classrooms. Students are marked absent when attendance is taken and require a late slip to return to class.
When students who arrive to class without a late slip, an automated message is sent home stating your child is absent.
To avoid any confusion, please remind your child to report to the office first.
If your child will be absent or arriving late for an appointment or absence or extended absence, please email our safe arrival firstname.lastname@example.org to let our office staff know.
Dec 5 - 16 2016
There will be a parent information night for the Gr 8 Grad trip on Wednesday Dec 7th at 6:45 pm. A separate email will be sent out with a link to a sign up sheet.
The Bessborough Athletic Council has had another fun week running intramurals for the grade threes and fours participating. Just like last week, students will be eating in the lunchroom from 11:40 to 12:00. They will be picked up by a council member, and brought to the big gym.

Hour of Code
The 2016 Hour of Code is a gloval event that takes place during the week of December 5 - 11. Participants commit to dedicating 1 hour to coding activities during that week. The purpose of the event is to raise the awareness of computer studies, programming and coding and the problem solving, logic and creativity that can be realized from learning more about, and participating in these types of activities. Coding and its associated activities are important components of TDSB's Vision for Learning and the Global Competencies including Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, Creativity, Inquiry & Entrepreneurship and Communication.
It's a great opportunity to start your little one on learning to code. Even at the age of 4! Mentor students will be working with a variety of classes to explore some of the games and activities to learn how to code.
Feel free to explore these with your child. Visit the following websites to learn more.
