It has been great to see students and teachers rally together over the past two weeks to help “scare hunger” in our community. With all the items collected, Crestwood should be proud to know that a difference really has been made to those in need. The winning homeroom was Mr. Tanev’s (with a tentative count of 500 items), followed by Mr. Finley’s class with 383 items. An honorable mention goes to the non-homeroom teachers, who collected more than 200 items. We are so proud of the Crestwood community for the wonderful job done!

The Junior Boys Volleyball team had an excellent building season this year. Although only competing against students in Grades 9 and 10, our team consisted of students from Grades 7-10. This could have easily intimidated our boys,  however, the team chose to enter each game confidently, always giving 100% on the court. Our most exciting game was against Toronto French School, where CPC rallied together and won a set 25-22! Coaches Hann and Wappel are proud of Spencer Arshinoff, Peter Hull, Sean McNamara, Robert Muresan, Anthony Radford-Grant, William Sun, and JulianVinizki. We’re looking forward to what both the U14 and Junior Boys Volleyball teams could look like next year!

Crestwood’s Senior Boys’ Volleyball Team saw a mix of team veterans playing alongside a number of athletic newcomers.  Over the course of the season, the individual and team skill level improved dramatically.  By the end of the season, the team was working together to play a high level of volleyball.  The team’s final match was a very close four-set affair involving great passing, setting, and hitting as well as solid defense. The season provided highlights such as thunderous spikes and blocks from outgoing team co-captains Ahmed Izzeldin and Tristan Lim, as well as great setting from Sunny Liu and Rachael Pape. Sultan Salih contributed great leadership with his pre-game motivation as well as solid hitting and defense.  Matti MacLachlan, Simon Yuan, and Ben Sharer provided exciting hits, digs and great serves all season long.  Congratulations to the Senior Boys’ Volleyball Team on a successful season!

The U14 Boys Soccer team finished the regular season with a record of 1 win and 4 losses. Despite the fact that the boys did not make the playoffs, they have plenty to look forward to in the coming season. Both the midfield and the offense proved game after game that it had little trouble scoring – in fact, it scored 8 goals against the York School in the last game alone. The goaltending too is promising, for Dustin Silverburg’s skills kept the scores close for several games. But where the team will no doubt improve next year is with its ‘young’ defense, as it uses this year’s valuable experience and takes it into next season. This team should be a real contender next year!

The Senior Boys Soccer team had a learning season. The base of the team was made out of first year players and only three grades 12’s. Our squad competed hard every game against older and stronger teams, yet they never lost heart. The season finished with one victory and five defeats, which will serve the team well, preparing for next season. Our special mention goes to our graduating players, Aidan Reilly, Matthew Iannucci and Stephen Cheng. Thanks for the season, and let’s get ready for next year! Go Lions!

This was an exciting year for the Junior Boys Soccer team, which featured five extremely close games that were all decided by less than two goals.  The team was led by excellent play in goal, as well as from the back end defense. This allowed the squad to always be competitive, no matter the quality of the opponent they faced.  Crestwood was a very aggressive squad that never let up.  Although the team just missed the playoffs, they did show off flashes of brilliance throughout the season, and should carry this over into next year.  Congratulations team!

Both the U14 and Varsity Cross Country teams had a great season this year. The team trained hard for their races and suffered through intervals, hill repeats and planks, all in the name of faster race times. While our season was shortened due to hurricane weather, the team performed admirably and recorded many personal bests. Coaches Mylvaganam, Lee and McCluskey are proud of everyone’s hard work and hope to see everyone out again next year!

Yesterday morning, over 100 Grade 5 and 6 students joined us at Crestwood Preparatory College. It was a wonderful morning, filled with inquiry, teamwork, and fun, as students got to experience what it’s like at CPC.

The Grade 5s and 6s joined us for our biweekly Town Hall Meeting in the gymnasium. They were greeted by our Student Government, who shared announcements, as well as a representative from the Terry Fox Foundation who presented us with a banner for our participation. We even ran a Teacher vs. Student basketball challenge. The students were then dismissed to attend their two classes of the day—physical education and science!

The Phys. Ed. class was exciting! The Grade 5s and 6s were able to learn alongside some of the older students, as they took part in team building activities and relays. It was great to see students of many different ages working so well together!

In science class, students made “ooey gooey slime” in a hands-on experiment. After discussing the lab safety rules, students began to mix together a mysterious white liquid (glue) and a super dangerous chemical (borax solution) to create a new, slimy material. What a fun class!

The day ended with a delicious lunch from our cafeteria, before the students returned to the Lower School. We had a great day, and we can only say it went by too fast! Luckily, there are more upcoming opportunities for Grade 5 and 6 students (and their parents) to visit us again.

November 5th (7-9pm): Open House

November 26th (5pm): Grade 5 and 6 Informational Meeting at the Upper School

The annual We Scare Hunger Food Drive is well underway. Students have been asked to bring in non perishable foods which are then donated to the North York Harvest Food Bank. Homerooms have already been filling up with rice, cooking oils, canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned meat, baby formula, and more. This food will then be donated to the people in our community who are in need. We still have one week left to collect food, and we are hoping that this year, we will be able to bring in more food than last!
