Frequent and regular communication between home and school is extremely important. We value the opportunity for parents to express their views so that we can address their concerns in many ways. Unique community engagement programs such as our Home and School Learning meetings enable the school and community to collaborate effectively. The school planner provides a convenient method for daily communication. Parent/teacher conferences, emails, telephone calls, newsletters, curriculum nights, and School Council meetings all provide channels for sharing information.
Firgrove students wear white tops and navy blue bottoms as part of the school dresscode. The Code of Behaviour includes the expectations that students, parents, and staff work together to promote respect for people and property, to implement health and safety rules, and to encourage co-operation with others. Students are encouraged to come to school regularly, on time, and be prepared to learn. We believe that consequences for inappropriate behaviour should be immediate, meaningful, and fair.


At Firgrove we are proud of our highly involved school council.  Parents are highly involved in all aspects in the school including pizza lunches, nutrition programs and volunteering in the classrooms. To meet the needs of our diverse learners we partner with theYork University, Faculty of Education,  Humber College Early Childhood Education program,  and Westview CI.   Firgrove's school community liaise with various community agencies and facilities including Hincks-Dellcrest Children's Centre, Surrey Place, Toronto Police 31 Division, Jamaican Canadian Association, Jane Finch Community Ministry, Delta Childcare, Parks and Recreation, Toronto Foundation for Student Success and the Metro Toronto Housing Authority.
