Workshop for Frankland families, educators and members of our community (open to the wider community and other schools- feel free to share).
Workshop description (PART II):
The second session of the workshop moves from theory into a practice for sharing tools with children on how to recognize, challenge, and resist anti-Black racism.
Facilitators will provide tips and resources for how to present information and analysis to children in a way that is age appropriate, safe, empowering, and engaging.
The group will discuss how children and families can engage in self-love and transformative allied actions and will plan mini lessons for their families in breakout groups.
NOTE: active participation during the workshop is welcome and encouraged, but absolutely not mandatory! Feel free to attend to 'only' learn and listen, use the chat function if you prefer, and have cameras on or off. The most important step is to care enough to show up and be eager to learn! And please do stay as long as possible - the breakout rooms & closing session were incredibly well-received in the last workshop.
Organized by the Frankland School Council’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Committee, in collaboration with the principal’s office. Facilitated by the Freedom School Toronto.
We’re so excited to announce our NEW ONLINE FALCONWEAR SHOP!! Check out the NEW styles + be sure to place your order by Wednesday April 28th. If you miss this window, don’t worry – we’ll be reopening the store in the Fall. Orders will be ready at the end of May/early June. If we are closed to in-person learning at that time, we will do our best to establish a safe neighbourhood pick up location for those who choose ‘ship to school’ when ordering. Free curbside pick up from Scarborough and ship to home (at an additional cost) are also available. Note: Falconwear is intended to raise our Frankland spirit and is not a fundraiser for the school.
Our Falcon spirit will be SPRINGing up all this week, so get ready!
TUESDAY IS SPORTS DAY. Wear your favourite team’s colours or dress like an athlete! WEDNESDAY IS FALCONWEAR/BLUE + WHITE DAY. Stay tuned for our online Falconwear shop opening later this spring!

Frankland, in partnership with Eastview Neighbourhood Community Centre, Blake Street P.S. and Pape P.S., is hosting a monthly series of “Wellness Wednesdays.”
Our first one, happening tomorrow, March 31st, will feature two speakers – first Steve Anderson will talk about success strategies for parents to combat stress and be the best parent you can be. Then Alicia Anderson will talk about mindfulness techniques for parents to use with their kids as calming/self-regulation techniques to help decrease family stress during and after COVID.
