Staff and students recognized Dwarfism Awareness Day on Thursday October 25th by wearing green.

We have 2 students at Robert Baldwin with Dwarfism. Our students had a chance to listen to interesting facts about Dwarfism on the announcements each day.  For example, did you know that 80% of people with Dwarfism have regular size parents.


Also, a big thank you again to Sana and her family for making the beautiful green ribbons for our staff and her classmates.


Thank you for making a difference!

Thank You School Council!

Our School Council generously supports and enriches the learning experiences for all of our students.  Recently, they purchased 20 Chromebooks for our Library. As well, the lines (e.g., four square, ball court) on our playground will be re-painted thanks to them. Our School Council meets on the 1st Monday of each month from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. Please consider attending a meeting. New members are always welcome.
