Week at the Woods


The 2017 Terry Fox School Run was a great success!
We are happy to share our final results. Falgarwood Public School has generously donated $948.02 for cancer research in Terry’s name.  The Terry Fox Foundation would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to your wonderful school community for carrying on Terry’s legacy. With open hearts and big dreams, your school sets a shining example of what can be accomplished with a focused goal and incredible school spirit. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to keep Terry’s dream alive!

Farewell

We are always happy for other HDSB schools when they receive good news.  Unfortunately, John T Tuck's good news is our bad news.  Ms. Danks interviewed for the Head Secretary position and was the successful candidate.  Ms. Danks' last day is yet to be determined.  We will keep you up to date when more information comes available.

Student Supervisors Needed


We are currently looking for supply student supervisors at Falgarwood. If you are interested in joining the Falgarwood team, please contact Mrs. Keen (VP) by calling the school office.


Kiss “N” Ride  as Winter Arrives!


Thank you to those parents who are using our Kiss “N” Ride.   Our staff are doing their best to create a safe and efficient entry.  Please pull up right to the end before your child exits your car. We are trying to keep cars from backing up onto the street. Yes, we know patience is needed! Thank you for helping to keep all our students safe!


School Parking lot


Did you know our parking lot has hours?  The parking lot is closed between the following times; 9-9:15 am (besides Kiss “N” Ride) and 3:45-4 pm.  

This is to keep your children safe and away from the buses.  Parents if you are picking up your child after school please find a meeting place other than the front parking lot.  Students are dismissed out onto the blacktop at the end of the day.


Winter Weather


Cold weather is here now! Please ensure that your child comes to school prepared to participate in all activities, including outdoor breaks. All students will be going outside during the recess. Playing outdoors is an enjoyable and healthy activity when students are wearing suitable clothing. Students can not be supervised indoors.



Principal's Message

I am thrilled to join the team at Falgarwood as Principal!  At the completion of my first week here, I am thankful for the warm welcome I received from students, staff, and parents. If you are stopping by the school to pick-up or drop-off your child, please introduce yourself.  I look forward to meeting and working with all of you!


Sincerely,

Mr. Nick Frankovich
Principal

For these reasons, streets around our school have “No Stopping” and “No Parking” signs installed. Please learn the difference between No Stopping and No Parking and help keep our school area safe for children.No stopping -No stopping means the halting of your vehicle is prohibited, even momentarily and even if occupied.No ...
