Grand Erie’s Website Gets a New Look for Back-to-School
This summer, some big changes happened to Grand Erie’s website. With improved design and functionality, it arrived just in time for back-to-school. We’re thrilled to introduce you to Grand Erie’s shiny new online home!
The changes you’ll notice give the website a new overall look and feel, while allowing for better dissemination of system and school news, as well as the integration of social media. The website is also AODA compliant in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, and streamlines content to whichever device you’re using. This will allow us to keep you informed about everything that’s going on in Grand Erie in the most timely and efficient manner.
Each Grand Erie school has a new website as well, so expect to find everything you need to know about your, or your child’s school, with messages from the principal, and news and events featured more prominently than before. You’ll also find transportation information, bell times, and staff directories in easy-to-find locations. Also displayed are the latest posts on social media.
Important news, days of significance, and interesting events from across Grand Erie are featured more prominently. Feature stories and media releases are available on the Newsroom page. Throughout the new website, you’ll learn more about Grand Erie’s Multi-Year Plan, and how it fits into the events, initiatives, and programs happening throughout the year.
The optimal browser to surf the new site is Chrome. We hope the new design provides a user-friendly web experience, with visual storytelling in the spotlight.
In honour of Black History month, Mt. Pleasant School welcomed a guest speaker, Mr. Michael Toby, to discuss Ontario's role in the Underground Railroad. Mr. Toby's unique presentation combined video, story telling and song to help students understand significance of the Underground Railroad. Students learned the role of music and song in guiding slaves towards the North. Students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we thank Mr. Toby for bringing his presentation to us.
Students and staff created individual handprints and contributed them to create this amazing piece of art. Each handprint is different and unique....kind of like our students! This month we celebrate our diversity.
