CUPE reaches tentative agreement; suspends work-to-rule action reaches tentative agreement; suspends work-to-rule action <p>The collective bargaining agreement between the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) expired on August 31, 2014. In the SCDSB, CUPE represents our custodial and maintenance staff. Since September 10, 2015, CUPE members have been engaged in provincial job action in the form of a work-to-rule campaign.   </p><p><strong>On November 2, CUPE reached a tentative agreement at the central bargaining table with the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA).  </strong>The tentative deal must be endorsed by CUPE's local leaders before it is presented to all CUPE members for ratification. CUPE has agreed to suspend central job action while ratification takes place.  Terms of the tentative agreement have not yet been made public. </p><p> To learn more about the labour situation, visit the <a href="" target="_blank">Labour Situation page</a> on the SCDSB's website.</p>

Get Ready to Generate Some Excitement! Ready to Generate Some Excitement!<p>​<span lang="EN-CA">The Simcoe County District School Board has partnered with AMP Solar Group and Potentia Solar to install solar panels on the rooftops of 41 schools across the County, generating over 4 mW. The 41 schools were successful applications approved by the Ontario Power Authority as part of the Feed In Tariff (FIT) program, producing renewable energy to feed the provincial energy grid. As part of this partnership, students will be able to monitor the energy produced at their school and compare it to other schools in the County as well as other schools in Ontario. Students will have access to real data that can be used in the classroom. Students will also have opportunities to engage in solar and renewable energy workshops and presentations at their school. The preparation for construction will commence March 11 and will be fully operational by the end of July. Revenue generated through this program will be used to enhance environmental learning opportunities for staff and students and expand on energy conservation efforts in our building. For more information, please contact the SCDSB Environmental Systems Coordinator, Jessica Kukac at 705-734-6363 extension 11514.</span></p>

Terry Fox Run a Huge Success Fox Run a Huge Success<p>​On Thursday, September 25th, PSS students and staff participated in our annual Terry Fox Run. The event was a great success and after calculating the total donations that PSS gathered, we discovered that we raised $359.58. Although we were short of our initial goal, a toonie for every PSS student, the money collected represents a sincere effort and appreciation for such a worthy cause, The Terry Fox Foundation. This foundation not only raises money for cancer research, but also strives to maintain and continue to recognize the heroic effort and integrity that Terry embodied.</p><p>With clear blue skies and accommodating temperatures, our school walk was enjoyed by all, rewarded with a huge thank you of snacks.  As well, congratulations to Mr. Mullin's Grade 11 Chemistry class for raising the most money. Thank you to Mr. MacIsaac, Mrs. Lapp and Mr. McLaren and all the other teachers and students who helped make the day run as smoothly as it did. Thank you to everyone who donated and participated, you have all made someone's life a little brighter.  </p>
