Join a Parent Council Committee

Parent Council determines which committees are needed each year.  These sub-committees are the “working groups” of our school council, the potential of which is limited only by your energy and enthusiasm. With a recently expanded roster of committees, to meet the diverse interests and talents of our school community, we hope you will find something that catches your eye!

Please join us in enriching our children’s educational experience at Humbercrest Public School.  CLICK HERE to sign-up for a committee!

 

Curriculum Night

Curriculum Night is Thursday, October 3, 2019 starting at 6:00 pm with a Meet and Greet in the Main Gym – Administration, Faculty and Parent Council will be welcoming families in the Senior Gym.  The evening’s program is geared towards parents and will provide an opportunity to visit your child’s classroom and hear from their teacher about this year’s program (note: two identical sessions will be offered in each classroom) and learn more about the Parent Council and how you can get involved.  Click here for the full schedule.

NEW Lunch Program

We are starting the school year with a change to our lunch programs. Real Food for Real Kids is no longer operational, and we are changing from Lunch Lady to Rose Reisman’s School Lunch Program – www.kidslunch.ca.

 

We will be piloting it on Fridays for 6 weeks.  The first lunch will be on Friday, September 27.  Registration is now open!  CLICK HERE for registration info, or look for the flyer in your child’s backpack.  School Password: HPS111

If the program is successful with families, we will be providing additional days throughout the week. All the food is purchased locally and made in a nut free kitchen.  Orders can be made online and lunches will be delivered to our lunchrooms.  For every meal purchased, Parent Council receives $.25 towards fundraising.

 

Back to School

Welcome Back!  School resumes Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

You will be notified of your child’s class by e-mail on Friday, August 30 in the late afternoon.  Please do not call the school.  The e-mail will be sent from Principal Simona Emiliani.  If by Friday evening you have not received an e-mail (and all parents/guardians have checked their e-mail and Junk Mail folders), then you can e-mail communications@humbercrestcouncil.ca to update your e-mail address and have class information sent to you over the weekend.  School staff will also be on hand Tuesday morning to provide teacher/class info.

Safety on the Streets

The Toronto Police Service is committed to working in partnership with schools, parents, and neighbourhoods to ensure the safety of children as they return to school.  CLICK HERE to find a document which includes useful information about how to keep school zones safe. We encourage you to share this information with your school community.

If you have a parking or traffic complaint, you can make a report through the Toronto Police Service website, www.torontopolice.on.ca.  Click on “Services” tab from the drop down box click on “Citizen Online Report Entry” and scroll down and click on “Driving Complaint” or “Immediate Parking Complaint” and report. 

We are also proving a letter explaining the changes to the The School Crossing Guard Program which take effect this month.
