Dot Day

Mon Sept 15th is International Dot Day at Sunnybrae PS

September 13, 2014 by · No Comments · School News


Monday September 15th is International Dot Day – a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration.  This day was inspired by author Peter H. Reynolds’ classic storybook “The Dot”.  The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”.  What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage (copies from the Int. Dot Day’s webpage

Students will be out drawing at 2pm.  We are asking students to donate chalk, wear (polka) dots, or Bulldog/Sunnybrae wear/ school colours.



Welcome Back to School!

L5657_flWELCOME BACK! Mrs. Whitley and I (and the entire staff) are very excited to begin a new school year at Sunnybrae!
We trust that you all had a fun, relaxing, action-packed and safe summer…and that you are recharged and ready to tackle a new school year with all the wonderful things that it has in store for you. The staff have been hard at work over the past few weeks preparing for students to arrive. We are committed to making this year meet all the high expectations that this community has come to expect from its’ school. As new administrators here last year we quickly learned that this school is a place that promotes the very best in character and learning. Rest assured that this year will be filled with fun, friendships and learning. We can’t wait to get started.
Last year we came together in September as a school and a community with a “Sidewalk” chalk event where we said farewell to Mr. Dorsey and Mr. Dunkley (the former administrators). We had so much fun that we would like to continue the tradition! Since Kathy and I are planning on remaining “Bulldogs” for the foreseeable future (you’re stuck with us), we listened to the input of the staff and decided that International Dot Day on Sept. 15th would provide an excellent excuse for us to get out again and be creative. Dot Day, is a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration—all traits that this school values and promotes. Stay tuned for more information as we plan for our event. Like last year your donations of sidewalk chalk are appreciated and necessary. (you can check out the background and find other information on ‘Dot Day” at
Please take a moment to look over the important information included in this newsletter as well as the package of forms that will be coming home with your children. With the start of a new year there also comes the need to establish good communication between school and home (which means homework for parents!)
We look forward to seeing many of you on the 15th, at our School Open House on the 25th and at our first School Council meeting of the year on the 29th.
Mrs. Whitley and Mr. McKeown
