THE BIG PICTURE: TEACHING RESPONSIBILITY TO YOUR CHILDREN
Over the recent weeks, I have noticed a trend amongst children. They do not know how to take responsibility for their actions, words etc. Kids want to instantly defend. It is ok to make mistakes, however we have to own it. We have been working a lot on responsibility. February, our focus is responsibility. The article above is a great resource when discussing this at home.
School starts at 8 am
According to the law, we no longer document tardies, instead, we have to account for every minute of the day. Therefore, time will accumulate and count towards time out of school.
Outdoor Recess Guidelines
Well, we had snow this week, please make sure your child has the proper clothing to go outside. We will go outside when it is cold and snowing.
Our guidelines for cold temperatures will be followed and monitored closely.
The temperature for outdoor recess is 20 degrees with the windchill.
Please make sure student have appropriate gear to be in the elements.
Winter coats, gloves, hats and boots are important.
You can send in shoes to wear in school and they can wear their boots out. Also feel free to send in an extra pair of socks or pants, sometimes the students clothing gets wet.
Medical restrictions for outdoor recess...
Medicines at school
If your child takes a prescription medicine or an over the counter medicine, it needs to be brought in by an adult in it's original countainer.
STUDENTS CANNOT bring medicine to school.
ALL medication must be brought in, in the original container by the parent or guardian.
