Your News... In Real-Time!

At Bruce Middle School we've decided to go paperless with our newsletter.

There are two advantages to this:

- The saving of paper is a savings in costs and more importantly another step in our ongoing commitment to sustainability.

- By offering news in this format, we can now provide our community with real-time news as it happens, instead of waiting until the end of the month to send out information.

Vision Screening

A Vision Screening will be carried out at our school the week of January 23rd  2017 for all grade seven students. 


This screening program is designed to uncover signs of any possible vision difficulty that may interfere with school progress.  It is not intended to be a substitute for the vision examination performed by an Ophthalmologist/Optometrist. Children who are currently wearing glasses will not be screened.


If after the vision screening has been completed you receive a notice from the school requesting that you refer your child for a professional eye examination, please follow up by making an appointment with an eye doctor of your choice.  Ask the eye doctor to complete the form sent to you by the school and then return this completed form to the school.


If you require any further information, please contact the school at 888-1990.
