Class Lists and Bussing Information - September, 2019

Class Lists and Bussing Information - September, 2019

​Hello Allan Drive Families.

As we move into the end of the school year for 2018-2019, our thoughts are already on the start of the 2019-2020 School Year. Respecting confidentiality, we will be following a few new routines for the sharing of homeroom teachers and busing information for the next school. Class lists and bus lists will no longer be posted in the school at the end of August. Rather, parents will receive an email by August 30 to inform them of their child's homeroom teacher. All busing information will be posted to www.stopr.ca by the last week of August. You will require your child's OEN number; which can be found on the top of their report card.

On the first day of school all students in grades 7 and 8 will be expected to report to their homeroom when they arrive.  Staff will be in the hallways directing students if they are unsure where to go. All students in grade 6 and in grade 7 Extended French will report to the gym. If you have any questions please call the school office at 905-857-9144.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope you enjoy a restful and relaxing summer with family and friends.

40 Hours to Graduate - Start this summer

40 Hours to Graduate - Start this summer

​All students in Ontario secondary schools are required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement in order to obtain their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Students are encouraged to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer after grade 8.

Research shows that early involvement in community service helps students build a spirit of civic responsibility which can be expanded as they move through secondary school.

The community involvement component is an opportunity for students and parents to work together, independent of the school. With parent support, your teen is responsible for finding and completing 40 hours of community involvement. These activities may take place in a variety of settings, including businesses, not-for-profit organizations, public sector institutions (including hospitals), and informal settings. Community Involvement normally takes place outside of the school day and does not consist of duties normally performed in the home (i.e., daily chores) or personal recreational activities.
 

Parents should provide assistance to their teen in the selection of community involvement activities. Here's how to get started:

 

Using Social Media Safely

Using Social Media Safely

Using social media safely

With the growing number of social media sites, it is no surprise that social media is the most common form of communication for children and teenagers. Posts, status updates, comments, instant messages, video uploads, tweets and texts have become a regular part of their lives. While there are many positive benefits to using social media, including staying connected with friends and expressing your interests, students must be cautious in their use of these networks.

Among the most popular social media platforms used are Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube and Whatsapp Messenger. Many of these platforms are free and are available on smartphones and other electronic devices. These platforms are easy to navigate and often allow information to be shared instantly, not only with friends, but with strangers. On social media, it is important to remember that the world is watching.

Here are some tips, provided by the Canadian Safe School Network and GetSafeOnline.org, to keep your children safe and help them make smart choices when using social media:

  • Set some boundaries for your child before they get their first 'connected device' (mobile, tablet, laptop or games console). Once they have it, it can be more difficult to change the way they use it or the settings.
  • Have a conversation about what is appropriate online behaviour and what actions could have huge repercussions that could damage their reputation and be harmful to others.
  • Talk to your child about the kind of websites they look at. Encourage them to speak to you if they come across something they find worrying or upsetting on websites, games or social media.
  • Discuss with your child what is safe and appropriate to post and share online. Written comments, photos and videos all form part of their 'digital footprint' and could be seen by anyone and available on the internet forever, even if it is subsequently deleted.
  • Explain to your child that being online doesn't give them anonymity or protection, and that they shouldn't do anything online that they wouldn't do face-to-face. Users should only accept people they know in order to protect themselves from spammers, strangers and others who may be using social networking sites to commit crimes.
  • Unlike when they're meeting someone face-to-face, children don't always know who they're actually 'talking' to online, even if they think they do. Tell your children they must never email, chat, or text with strangers, and it's never okay to meet a stranger in the real world.
  • Ensure your children set their privacy settings appropriately. Take the time to learn how privacy settings work on your children's favourite sites, and teach them how to control their privacy.
  • Tell your children never to share personal and private information with anyone online. This includes, but is not limited to, his or her full name, age, birth date, address, phone number, social insurance number, credit card information and  parents' full names.
  • Limit the amount of time that your children spend on social media platforms and talk about the importance of healthy and appropriate use of technology.

 

 

 

Promoting Wellbeing in Your Children This Summer: The Importance of Structure

Promoting Wellbeing in Your Children This Summer: The Importance of Structure

​Summer vacation is almost here! Children can barely wait to put away their backpacks and spend their days free. Although this might be true for many, children and parents rely on structure to help guide the day, even in the summer. Structure holds kids and allows them to feel safe, knowing what to expect throughout the day and the week. Although it is crucial for children to have unstructured, free time each day, it is important for there to be some routine and structure (however you define it) to help children manage their emotions. Parents and children should sit down and discuss the summer plans, whether it is camp every day or multiple weeks off in a row, kids need to know what to expect.
