Good Evening Robert Little Families!

(Please read to the bottom of this email for important messages and attachments)

We are almost there!!!

The summer has flown by for all of us here at Robert Little! Our staff have been back at it since mid August and are ready for another amazing year. We hope you have been following our adventures on Twitter, our staff have been all over the place.  

Class Lists

Each family should receive an email today with your child’s class number and teacher.  If you do not receive an email please contact Mrs Golightly at and she will review the assignment and let you know!   

This is a new process, there may be some glitches to the system, however doing it this way ensures that students personal information is not shared publicly. 

Tuesday Morning 

Staff will be out on the blacktop beginning at 9:05 to begin meeting their class.  Teachers will have a large sign with their name and class code, and there will be many adults out to help if you need any assistance finding your child’s teacher. We will have O Canada and Announcements outside once we are all gathered and then each class will go in to begin their day.

We will have some coffee on the blacktop for adults to enjoy a cup of coffee with your community. Knowing your school community and the families of your child’s classmates is important in developing strong relationships. Enjoy a moment of quiet once we all go inside after announcements. If you have a reusable cup, please bring it along! (We will have disposable ones if you forget!)

School Council for 2019-2020

We are excited to work with our community again this year and invite all returning and new members to consider running for an elected position on council.  Though any Robert Little family can attend any School Council meeting, our elected members can have a strong voice in the direction of our school journey.

Nomination forms will come home this week in your child’s first day package.  Please consider running! We are excited to work together this year for the children and community of Robert Little. 


This summer we have had a lot of work done around our school.  New windows have been installed and will help us keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter!  The Primary wing has had a new roof installed, and final touches will continue into the month of September.  The Town of Halton Hills has installed our wonderful new playground. We are so grateful to the community for all your input, ideas and support in fundraising.  We were able to add some extra fun activities to the playground and we have noticed our community already enjoying the new structure! 

Enjoy the long weekend!


In Partnership,
