Partners As Partners - Everyone benefits when parents are involved in their child’s education. TeachOntario wants to help. From curriculum supports to resources on well-being, we’ve re-organized our Parents as Partners content according to the specific needs of early, primary, junior, intermediate and secondary learners. These are resources you can share with your students’ parents and caregivers. Over the next months, we’ll continue to add to the resources. Let us know what you think.

Ontario Child Health Study - Our community is one of 180 communities across the province which has been selected for the 2014 Ontario Child Health Study. Participating in this study, if asked to do so, is an important opportunity to help children and youth in Ontario.
