Project School Visit:
Roy H. Crosby Public School (Markham)

Visit sponsored by: Friends of the Environment Foundation

In June 2000, we visited Roy H. Crosby Public School in Markham with our one-year-old male peregrine falcon "Scotty".  Below are some comments from the principal:

I am writing this letter to acknowledge what a wonderful program your staff provided for my students at R.H. Crosby P.S.  Our grade 4-6 students were spellbound by the presentation on the Peregrine Falcon.  The children spoke about nothing else for a number of days following the visit.  Comments from the classes include:

The film "Life on the Ledge" and the Student Guides which you left were excellent resources for the classroom teachers.  The student's guide to Ontario's Endangered Wildlife gave teachers graph exercises, diagrams, pictures and worksheets as follow up to your visit.  The information shared by your presenter was both interesting and thought-provoking.  I highly recommend this presentation to schools interested in the plight of our endangered species in their natural environment.

Thank you,

Bob Sandiford, Principal
