POLICY - INFORMATION TO STUDENTS
On a daily basis, within the first two weeks of school, the office has been receiving an inordinate amount of message from parents/guardians for their children. With a population of over 550 students the volume of messages is overwhelming.
Therefore we are asking that parents communicate end of the day pick up plans before their child comes to school. We are having difficulty ensuring each and every one of the many, many messages we receive, actually get to the children. Firstly we want the focus to be kept on each classroom being a learning environment for all students, so please DO NOT call into class during class time. Thank You for your understanding and change in practices.
QSP MAGAZINE FUNDRISER
We are pleased to bring you the QSP Family Reading Program, which kicks off ON Monday, October 27th, 2014 and will run for approximately 3 weeks. This magazine subscription sale will help raise needed funds for programs and activities that benefit our students and at the same time it promotes reading literacy.
Our school retains a significant portion of the subscription price for every magazine purchased, so every order counts!! Our goal is to have all of our students involved.
The magazines will only be available to order ONLINE.
This program helps keep money in your community. Please contact family, neighbours, friends and co-workers for their support.
More information will shortly be sent home with the students.
ONTARIO CHILD HEALTH STUDY/SCHOOL MENTAL HEALTH SURVEYS
Make a difference in the lives of children and youth and say 'yes' to participate in the 2014 Ontario Child Health Study and School Mental Health Surveys.
The 1983 Ontario Child Health Study told us that 1 in 5 children and youth experienced serious mental health challenges. This estimate is outdated as is much of what we know about child and youth mental health in Ontario. The 2014 Ontario Child Health Study will tell us about the mental health status and needs of children and youth living in Ontario today.
From October 2014 to May 2015, Statistics Canada will be inviting 7,000 families with children aged 4 -17 years to complete an interview in their home. At the same time, McMaster researchers will be conducting School Mental Health Surveys in 240 Ontario schools to help us learn new ways of promoting and addressing student mental health needs.
Together, these studies will be the first of their kind in Canada to examine the influence of family, community and school environments on child and youth mental health.
The results will be used to develop programs and services to improve the mental health of young people in Ontario. Results from the 1983 Study were partially responsible for over 3 billion dollars of investment in federal and provincial programs and services, resulting in the creation of programmes such as the Ontario Early Years Centres.
Participation in the 1983 Ontario Child Health Study was over 90%. Make sure you are heard in 2014 as well. Let's make our province a better place for children and youth. If invited to participate, please say ‘yes’ to the 2014 Ontario Child Health Study and School Mental Health Surveys. www.ontariochildhealthstudy.ca
