Continuing our Learning

At our PA day, we began learning more about trauma and the effects on our students. We appreciate everyone's contribution to these discussions. In this week's "Peek at the Week", we have included an article and infographic from Stuart Shanker that continues to build on this learning.


We've also included "dice talks" slides which could be used in a similar way to "dot talks". Just a fun little way to work on our number sense!


Wishing everyone a wonderful week as well as a fantastic long weekend!!

Emergency Procedures

*Please take the time to review the emergency procedures with your class (see below). We will be having a practice lockdown tomorrow @ 1:15. If you any questions/concerns about our emergency procedures, please let Joanne or Shannon know.


*Just a reminder that people showing up at our school within our school day must buzz into the office and be let in. Although it is a kind gesture, students and staff should not be opening our front door and letting people into the building. This helps to ensure the safety of our staff and students.

It is taking some time to set up a local online ordering for school spirit wear and some staff are asking for an option. This store was set up last year and still works for ordering. If staff would like Southview gear, this is our option at this time.
