Happy Halloween!

In recognition of Halloween, the STEPS students walked to the Party Warehouse to explore the scary costumes and decorations. Check out what they discovered:


As you can see, they had a great time trying things on and interacting with the merchandise! On behalf of all of us in STEPS, we wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween!

Parent / Teacher Interviews

Thank-you to all the parents who were able to make it to Parent / Teacher Interviews last night. It was wonderful to see some familiar faces, as well as a few new ones! If you were unable to come but would like to discuss your child's school experience, please don't hesitate to contact me to set up a time to come visit. We are always available and welcome the opportunity to coordinate with home to further your child's progress. I can be reached via phone at 519-252-6514, Ext. 31410 or email at You can also message me through Remind, which if you have not signed up for, you can do so by clicking here: . Remind also provides me with the ability to communicate with parents as a group, to let you know perhaps of an event at school such as "Blue and White Day", or to suggest you to send an umbrella for a field trip because it is supposed to rain. We look forward to keeping you up to date on how your child is learning and developing.

Welcome October

Well it is hard to believe that a month has passed already. September was an exceptionally busy month in the STEPS department having had 5 events to cater! The first was the Hospice volunteer awards, followed by providing breakfast treats for our first PD day, then we provided baked goods for WCCA's Meet the Teacher event, made over 300 treats for a wedding, and lastly we made salads and treats for a shower. Needless to say, we have been super busy in culinary, work experience, and self help and self care!
In just another week we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Parent-teacher interviews are this month on the 19th. We look forward seeing you then!

End of Week 3

Today marks the end of our third week of school and all I can say is that we've been busy. Congratulations to the STEPS students for their hard work preparing appetizers and desserts for the Hospice Volunteer Awards Banquet which took place on Thursday, September 15th.

 Tomorrow is our first P.D. day of the school year. Staff will be enjoying muffins, breads, breakfast cake, and hard boiled eggs, all prepared by the STEPS students.
Enjoy the long weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday!

First Day of School!

Well, the first day of school was a success! The rooms were not as prepared as we had hoped  and the weather was a bit hotter than we would have liked, but at least we have air conditioning. Returning students seemed genuinely happy to be back and new students adjusted to their new school just fine.  It's going to be a great year!
