This Week at Sunnybrae PS - Nov. 20 to 24, 2023
Posted on 11/17/2023

Principal’s Message: Thank you for taking the time last week to meet with staff to talk about your child(ren)’s progress.  Working together is the best way to help them learn and grow.  We have been having a lot of issues during soccer games both on the primary and junior/intermediate yards.  Yard duty staff and classroom teachers have been focusing on teaching the skills of being a good sport regardless of whether you are winning or losing, following the rules and applying self-regulation skills in the heat of the moment. Thank you for your support in reinforcing these skills.  

This week:

  • Nov. 21st:  Intermediate Girls Basketball Zones
  • Nov. 22nd:  Intermediate Boys Volleyball Zones


  • Nov. 28th:  Grade 2 Trip to Simcoe County Museum (Payment and permission available through schoolcash online)
  • Dec. 4th:  Picture Retake Day

With the holiday season fast approaching, Sunnybrae PS has partnered with Christmas for Kids to organize a school toy drive. Through December 4 to the 8.

Popcorn Sales - Tuesdays from Nov. 21 to Dec. 19

The Grade 8's are selling popcorn to raise money for their Grade 8 trip. They will deliver orders every Tuesday from October 31st to December 19th. All sales must be made through schoolcash in advance to provide them with the numbers ordered. Students can only order one bag each week and the cost per bag is $2.00. Orders must be placed by Sundays at 6:00 pm and will be delivered to students in their classrooms on Tuesday. You can order each week or order several weeks in advance. We are unable to deliver after Tuesday if a student is absent and we are unable to issue refunds.  Sales will end Sunday at 6:00 pm and will resume on Wednesday for the following week.

Hot Lunch Program

The pizza ordering for Sunnybrae PS is now available.  The pizza program will start on Thursday, November 16th and will be available every Thursday.  We continue to offer subs from Subway on Wednesdays and the pizza will come from Refs pizza.

Important Information:

You will still order through SchoolCash Online.  You will select Lunchbox from the items available.

You will need to know your child’s teacher to order.

You can order for one week or several weeks at a time.

The deadline is very strict and we cannot add on late orders (Sunday at Noon for the following week)

The pizza program will not run when buses are cancelled, you will receive a credit for that week.

If there is a school closure the order will be cancelled and you will receive a credit.

If you have problems or concerns with ordering, you can contact the Lunchbox Support Team at 1-877-426-6860

Safe Arrival system for SCDSB schools – call 1-888-885-8065 to report an absence

Our school office is a very busy place.  You can help out by remembering to call if your child will be absent.  You can also email [email protected].  It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to notify the school of any absences/lates if your child is part of our safe arrival program.  Please spell your child’s name and teacher’s name as the translation of some messages is very challenging to determine the student’s name who is absent.
