Ontario Gov’t Gives New Funding for School Expansion

Norseman Junior Middle School is a sought after elementary school in the Norseman Heights neighbourhood.  Known for a combination of consistent high quality academic standards and a strong athletic program, the school continues to experience increases in student enrolment.  So much that many students are now housed in six portables.  The school has been in need of new funding for school expansion.

Principal Carolyn Wright had never witnessed parents arriving at her door step with MLS listings asking if homes for sale were in the schools catchment area until she became Principal of Norseman Junior Middle School. The popularity of the school is having an impact on homes in the school’s boundaries.  The demand for these homes outstrips the supply so they tend to sell very quickly and are continually increasing in price.

The Ontario Gov’t  gives new funds for school expansion and the good news is that Norseman JMS will receive $6 million dollars to expand the school to accommodate the  student growth. A nice investment for families in the Norseman Heights community.

Stonegate Farmers’ Market opening is just a month away!

I just love the Farmers Market and I love shopping locally.  Its a great opportunity to meet and support some of our local farmers.  It really makes me appreciate how lucky we are to have fresh grown produce so close by.  Come out and give it at try!  Tuesday afternoons from 4-7  pm.  You won’t be disappointed.  I just might see you there!

Mimico Waterfront – Yours to Discover

Mimico’s Waterfront – it’s worth exploring

Our Mimico Waterfront is often ignored by many of us that live so close. The trails and parks are great for walking, cycling, jogging, for the photographer buff and the list goes on.  A great outing for the kids on a sunny day.  Really a great destination for anyone!
