Welcome Back Cody!

Skating Night Cancelled.

Due to unreasonable warm conditions, the city of Toronto has closed the Hodgson Ice Rink. Therefore, unfortunately, skate night tonight has had to be canceled. Attempts will be made to reschedule. If that is possible we will let you know. 

Skating Night is back!

Maurice Cody Family skating night will take place on Feb 9th between 5:15-7:15. Come for the skating, friends and music, stay for the hot chocolate! Helmets mandatory, hockey forbidden. 

See you!

Maurice Cody's Eco Club is hosting our second Junk Art Competition

At home, students are invited to make art using items that you would usually throw away or recycle (e.g. bottle caps, toilet paper rolls, loose buttons, paper packaging, etc). Below are some examples of what junk art could look like.

Participating students will be asked to bring their art to their classrooms on Monday, January 29 (and not before!). Please affix a label to the art, with the student’s name, room number, and grade. The art will be put on display in our atrium for the week. On Friday, February 2 the Eco-Club will announce a winning junk art entry from the primary, junior, and kindergarten divisions respectively. Students can pick up their art the following week to take home.

Get messy, get creative, and have fun!
