The Arnold Anderson Sport Fund has proudly supported the cost of registration fees for youth entry level sports in Brantford for over 10 years,  The fund assists local families who are in financial strain, to provide physical activity  and participation for their children.  Look in the forms section of our website for application forms.

 

  We had a "sea of pink" on Pink Shirt Day to talk about creating a bully free Banbury Heights. We also showed our students what to do when they are being bullied and what we can do to help our students who do bully.

Are your children working on their math facts?  Every Friday is Quiz day.  Improving students get their name put into a draw for their chance to win a prize.  Our students are improving! Keep up the good work and thanks for your help!

Every Friday is Pizza Day!  Students can order a slice of pizza on Friday mornings for $2.00 per slice.  It will be delivered to the classroom on the second nutrition break.

  Please help your children with their permission slips. We cannot take students on excursions without signed permission.

 Please do not park/pick up students at the front of the school in the no-parking zone. Police and bylaw officers will be out to enforce the law.  Please understand that this zone was put in place for the safety of our students. Thanks for your assistance in this matter!

Parents, have you tried Mathville 1 or mathville 2? It's a web based math resource to make math fun for grade 1 and 2 students. To students, this looks like a game collection, but each of the activities addresses an important topic in the Ontario math curriculum.

No login or password is required.  Banbury has purchased a subscription and it is available to staff, parents and students.  Give it a try and have fun!

Nuts and Soy Butter Products 

As you are aware, we enforce a nut free school environment, as required by the Sabrina’s Law legislation. That means that in order to ensure the safety and well being of our students, staff and visitors, no products with nuts or nut oils are permitted in the school and on the playground. It is always important to read  labels, particularly those attached to bulk bin purchases.  In the past year, a peanut butter substitute made with soy has become available. It is marketed as a safe replacement and alternative to peanut butter. It is designed to look, smell and taste like peanut butter and is packaged to look like a popular brand. It is not to be brought to school as it would be very difficult to govern by staff.
