Hey, Falcons! Let’s kick off our month of March spirit days in a big way this Wednesday. It’s BACKWARDS SHIRT DAY! Get creative, have fun – and try to not get mixed up when you can’t see the face of the person in front of you in line, but you can read the front of their shirt!
Spirit Days are nearly here, starting with BACKWARDS SHIRT DAY this Wednesday! We can’t wait to see Falcon creativity in action expressing these themes. Which day are you most looking forward to??
Happy sunny Friday, Falcons! Spirit Days are coming to Frankland! Stay tuned for details and get ready for some fun as you show your creativity and school spirit. Any guesses on upcoming themes??

Back at it! Starting the first day on a sweet note for our incredible team of Frankland staff & teachers. They keep our kids happy, safe & (wait for it…) SHARP! Who can resist a good pun – or delicious truffle from our neighbourhood Avoca Chocolates for that matter?! Thank you to the Spirit Squad for organizing!
Looking forward to seeing all our Frankland families back at school on Tuesday, February 16!
More amazing books to be read during Black History Month (but, really, any time of the year!) can be found on the Mighty Girl website (for boys, too! 🙂).
And here are some recommendations from the University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE): Raising and Teaching Anti-Racist Kids (divided by age)
As always, we welcome your own suggestions for resources and reading recommendations in the comments and on Facebook/Instagram. 📚
February is Kindergarten Registration Month at the TDSB. Children who will be four by December 31, 2021, can start Junior Kindergarten in September 2021.

From unintentional microaggressions, to a culture of exclusion (among students and parents), racialized families at Frankland almost always have a host of stories to tell on racism they have encountered across the school community. It is an important topic and we hope to learn more about building a more inclusive and actively anti-racist school community. Please join!

February is Black History Month. Here are some great book recommendations from both, the TDSB (see photo) and the Toronto Public Library, to read with our kids throughout the year (and, especially, this month!).
