Let’s Talk Equity at Frankland

You are invited to a free Parent Engagement evening on Thursday March 22nd 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Let’s discuss how to continue to create a culture of respect at Frankland and one that values equity and inclusiveness.

Come join the TDSB’s Michelle Munroe, Manager, Parent and Community Engagement, to discuss the role and impact of equity in our classrooms and playground.

What is equity? To TDSB, equity is about providing each and every student with the right conditions, resources and opportunities to support their achievement and well-being.

Snacks and refreshments served. Childcare is available

Eco Club: Plant Drive Update

Today we had an Eco Club meeting in the foyer led by Liisa who taught us a lot about plants and what they can do, how they interact and how to care for them.  Did you know this about plants?

We also started a Plant Experiment. Come visit the front lobby of Frankland School and participate by talking (or not talking) to the plants as directed. Give them a spray if they seem dry as the school is an incredibly hot and dry place.  Let’s see what happens in a couple of weeks.

Check out our booklet we put together for the Plant Drive with interesting “myth busting” facts about plants, directions for the experiment above that you can try at home and some tips on how to care for indoor (typically tropical) plants.

Thanks again for your support!  Keep sending plants to school!
