Principal's Message

Dear Sabre Families,

First off, thank you to those parents who were able to attend our first School Council meeting this past Thursday. There was good feedback from our parent group and definitely some robust conversation. If you were unable to attend the meeting and would like to hear the various points, please CLICK HERE.

Terry Fox Run:

Thanks to Ms. Zuke and our SAL Leadership students for coordinating the Terry Fox Run. Although, we are doing things in a different fashion, it is important, not just as Sabres, but as Canadians to continue our traditions and honor these occasions. Here are a couple of media links with more detail.

This week brings us to early dismissal on Wednesday, consistent across all schools in Elk Island Public schools. School is closed Friday for Professional Development Day as well. The focus of our staff meeting and professional development is around reflections of the first month and the pedagogy of learning under our new quarter system. We are also planning and being proactive in ensuring we are as best prepared for the remainder of the year; be it online or in class instruction, regardless of what scenario the future holds.

School is also closed on Monday, October 12, and however you celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you and your family a peaceful, restful one.

Mental Health Commission of Canada:

Healthy emotional and social development in our early years lay the foundation for mental health and resilience throughout the lifespan. Yet, 70 per cent of persons living with a mental illness see their symptoms begin before age 18. Mental illness affects some 1.2 million of our children and youth. By age 25, that number rises to 7.5 million (about one in five Canadians).

Youth who need mental health services as they are entering the adult mental health system are often not well supported: less than 20 per cent receive appropriate treatment — a figure close to the number of children receiving needed mental health services.
