It was great to see families supporting the International Walk to School Day. Students enjoyed a short walk to school, an apple and a picture with our Mayor, Cam Guthrie. Thanks to all who participated! Now, let’s see if we can encourage more students to walk to school for their health and the health of the environment.
We will be running for Terry Fox on September 29, 2016. Remember your running shoes and water bottle.

Family Literacy Day Wednesday January 27th
Paisley Road P.S. celebrates reading with lots of special events on Family Literacy Day! Kids are invited to come to school dressed as a favourite book character (no weapons please)! We will be sure to take some pictures! Students can bring books to swap from 1:40-3:15 in the front foyer. Bring books you are finished reading and take home some ‘new-to-you’ books. Enter the Family Literacy Contest (yellow flyers) and earn a ballot for every 5 squares you complete.
