October 2023 Notes from the Office
Message From the Office
We have a lot of exciting things happening in October! Please remember to check the school calendar on the website. I try to keep it updated as much as possible.
One of the strategies we are working on for Safe Schools and learning social skills is the “NO, GO, TELL” Strategy. If students encounter someone being unkind, they can say “No, I do not like that” or “No, thankyou”! If the situation continues – they can GO to another place or away from the situation. The last step is to TELL an adult (ideally a staff, and we also encourage students to tell any trusted adult, a parent at home, for instance). if they need help solving the situation. You can help by reviewing and practicing this strategy at home.
Mr. Keesmaat and Mr. Lindsay
