Dear Keystone and Kilittaşı Community,

The students are getting very excited as the most extended term of our year is nearly over, and a well-deserved break is on the horizon. They have worked hard to start the year academically successful, with their first exam period almost completed. Due to the public holiday, the President declared that our ELA exams will be held on Monday, 6th November. The Autumn break will start at the end of school on Friday, 11th November, and we will welcome all our students back on Monday, 20th November. GRAND CELEBRATION OF THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF REPUBLIC DAY. On Sunday, October 29th, we celebrated the vibrant and joyful 100th year of Republic Day at our school. Our faculty, students, and school community came together to enjoy the talented performances of our students and teachers. They sang and performed a waltz while we honoured Atatürk. During the ceremony, Our kindergarten students had a meaningful and touching experience that helped them feel the love and respect for our country's founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. We thank everyone for their overwhelming participation. Our love and appreciation for ATATÜRK will never die. OSSLT EXAMS Some of our Grade 11 and 12 students completed their practice OSSLT exams this week in preparation for the actual exams next week. This is part of the Ontario graduation requirements for them, so shortly, they will be one step closer to graduating successfully with their Canadian high school diploma. HALLOWEEN On Tuesday, we celebrated Halloween with the many different activities put on by our Round Square Team. The primary and middle school students enjoyed themselves with a fashion parade followed by face painting, games, and a movie afternoon for our younger ones. The students’ costumes were wonderful and highly creative. I appreciate your support in making this day memorable for your children. Kindergarten students had a blast coming to school in their funny and creative costumes. They watched in amazement as their older classmates paraded their own costumes. Throughout the day, they enjoyed trick-or-treating and collecting healthy treats while modeling their costumes and playing fun games. These happy moments from their preschool days left a lasting impression on their young minds. PARENT-TEACHER MEETINGS Kindergarten parent-teacher meetings will be held on Saturday, November 4th. Before the meeting, your child's progress reports will be sent to you for review. Time schedules for the meetings with your teachers have already been arranged.
