J. Addison had their annual Terry Fox Run, commemorating Terry’s inspirational Marathon of Hope. Our staff and students raised $4000. Everyone had a great time running, walking and playing the activities and games. It was amazing to see everyone.
J. Addison School attended the the Our Kids Private School Expo on Saturday September 28th, 2019 at the Roy Thomson Hall. Student Leaders and Staff spoke to prospective parents, guardians, agents and students of their experience! For more information about the school, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Thank you @ourkidsnet for having us as well.
J. Addison attended their annual YLCC trip. Over 120 students prevailed through the rain, their fears and worked together as a team. The group of students were remarkable and showed great character. The trip helped improve teamwork, communication skills and long last ting friendships. We can’t wait for next year!
Dorm students were treated to Carnival Treats over the weekend by our Residence Wellness Department and Residence Council. This social activity allowed dorm students to enjoy some tasty treats that would be expected at a typical carnival and socialize peers. Students enjoyed pizza, hotdogs, fries, cotton candy, snow cones, ice-cream and great music. For more information on upcoming events in the dorm and school, please see Mr. Brendan or Residence Council Representative.
Once again, J. Addison School provided the most student volunteers at the Terry Fox Run-Markham-Unionville Event on Sunday September 15th, 2019 with over 65 student volunteers. We at J. Addison School are extremely proud of our students as they volunteered throughout the rainy weather. Students were also treated to pizza and drinks upon arrival to the school for their hard-work. A major thanks to our Residence Wellness Department for organizing this event.
This week we welcomed all new and returning students in to the J.Addison family. On J.Addison Orientation Day they were shown a tour of our facilities and played activities to get to know each other. With help from our dorm staff, dorm students were moved in to their new homes for the year. The students have met their teachers for the semester and are ready to start the 2019-2020 school year. We are excited and wish everyone the best!
