Halloween Next Week!

On Thursday, October 31st, we will be celebrating Halloween at Owen! Your child's teacher will be in touch with specifics around class events and times. For those who do not celebrate Halloween we encourage you to communicate this to the classroom teacher to ensure that appropriate inclusive activities are in place for Thursday.

While students are welcome to wear their costumes to school, please ensure that your child’s costume is free from any kind of weapons and remember that vision-hindering masks can be a safety hazard. Please also consider whether your child’s costume may pose any difficulty with navigating the bathroom. 


Do you shop online? If so, why not contribute to our school simply by connecting to your favourite online shopping sites through our FlipGive site. It's easy! Use the link below to start your shopping and our school will earn cash back on your purchases. On your first $15 or more purchase, our school receives $5!!!


Having trouble? Search for Team 206664.

Student Voices

Hey Owen Community,

The Eco club would like to encourage you to complete the City of Toronto’s Plastic Survey. If you wonder what the survey is about, it is a survey to see if we will ban or put a fee on single use plastic. Why should we do this survey? If we continue to use single use plastics our environment can eventually be polluted. How? The chemicals in the plastics can leak out and pollute our environment. Then eventually it will leak into our trees and grass.  

Do the survey ! We want everyone including students to complete the survey. Click here for the link


Thanks,

Eco club 

A Message from our Owen Student Athletic Council

Owen Families,

We are happy to say that our first School Spirit Day was a success!

Many people were wearing Raptors clothing, and even more people wore red, black, white and purple.
We took some amazing photos.  

Thank you to everyone who helped make this School Spirit Day a success.
By:  Anissa and Valentina, Grade 5
