Did you know we have a student conduct plan for our school?
The plan was developed by the school council and administration, with input from teachers, parents and guardians.
The plan outlines the rules and expectations for the conduct of students, staff, parents and guardians to foster a safe, supportive, purposeful and courteous climate at school. The plan also outlines how the school will address unacceptable behavior through consequences that are meaningful, age appropriate, progressive and flexible.

We invited Ms. Hirsh, one of our kindergarten teachers, to share one activity she uses in her classroom to help instill self regulation and build social-emotional skills in her students. Based on the Second Step Program, Ms. Hirsh's students play the Listening Game (eyes watching, voice quiet, ears listening, body still). To keep the conversation going, try asking your child what tools their teachers use to help them navigate making friends, managing emotions, and solving problems at school.
Interested in learning more about building self regulation and social-emotional skills in our school? We'd love to hear from you.
It's a new school year and there are lots of great ways to get involved at our amazing school! Join us at the school council AGM to hear updates from the school council, administration, and the Department of Education.
