Today's Parent Fourth Annual Top Schools in Canada

    TORONTO, Aug. 13 /CNW/ - Today's Parent releases its annual Top Schools
list, recognizing the best elementary and middle schools across Canada. Did
your child learn to juggle at school? Did she make sandwiches for the homeless
in the community? Has your student been included in the Principal's Good Book?

Schools profiled in the September issue. Today's Parent shares stories of
excellence in schools across Canada.
