Generational Leadership: Preparing Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s Jobs
Join Canadian Club Toronto on February 12 when The Honourable Stephen Lecce discusses what these changes mean to him, and how the Ontario government is setting up today’s students for the jobs of tomorrow.
Globalization, technological progress and a new demographic of workers are creating a profound impact on labour markets. There is an increasing demand for STEM, financial literary, technological fluency and soft skills. How can we manage this transition?
Minister Lecce will be joined in conversation by Adrienne Batra, Editor-in-Chief of the Toronto Sun.

The Lunch Mom will offer credits for any days affected by a strike!
Term three hot lunch pricing will include a $6 credit for any days affected by a strike. So if, for example, we miss one Tuesday and two Fridays, Tuesday Term 3 lunch pricing would be reduced by $6 and Friday Term 3 pricing by $12.
Let’s reduce waste this Valentine’s Day as much as possible, and definitely by not buying single-use cards! 💚
Frankland Day Care would like to let parents know about available spaces on days that school is cancelled due to TDSB job action or a PA day.
They are currently operating under capacity, and so these spaces can be filled on an ad-hoc, daily, first come/first served basis by contacting the daycare (email@example.com or 416-463-1413).
Elementary Families – please take a moment to participate in the two reviews being undertaken by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) at this time. These reviews will have an impact on the future of Secondary Schools in our community. Something that is important to all families at Frankland.
The TDSB is undertaking a review of secondary schools to ensure all students have equitable access to programs and opportunities, as close to home as possible. As part of the Secondary Program Review, the TDSB is reviewing the Optional Attendance policy (P013), which allows students to apply to schools other than their designated school by home address.
You can find info about the Secondary Program Review and Optional Attendance here including lots of great Q&A facts.
Secondary Program Review survey deadline Jan 31st
Optional Attendance opportunity for input deadline Feb 3rd
