Summer school in the TDSB

From our counselor Kelley Miller-Caise:

The TDSB is offering summer school this year. Our area is not offering it, but students can apply to go to other programs directly with the site principal (listed on the link).

Bowmore Admin or Guidance will sign the forms.

All the programs focus on literacy / numeracy through involvement with either the arts, physical activities or STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
