Thanking Frankland staff & teachers.

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!

More Resources/Book Recommendations for Black History Month

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. 📚

Building an Anti-racist School Community: Virtual Joint Ward Forum on Feb. 18

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!
