Weekly Message #7-6

imgres-3Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  We just got back from walking the dogs – took advantage of a break in the rain – although it looks like more is coming.  Best wishes to you and your families on this Thanksgiving weekend.  I am thankful for working with all of you!  For those who missed the “Super snacks for Super staff” on Friday, we will catch up with you on Tuesday.  The leftover snacks will go in the staffroom for your eating pleasure.

It’s a busy week for School Based Team.  We have three meetings this week – one with Kathy Grimm and 2 (Aboriginal) with Kim Kondra.  Agendas are in your boxes.  Please remember that we have a process for referring students to SBT.  When you are concerned about a student, please have a conversation with your Resource Teacher.  Between the two of you, you will decide what assessments / interventions need to take place at a Tier 2 level.  When you arrive at SBT, you should have documented the impact / results of your plan for our discussion.

For the next three weeks, we will be focusing on “Real life Heroes” on the morning announcements.  The announcements will be a little bit longer than usual.  It would be great if you could follow up in your classrooms.

We will be having our first lockdown drill for the year on Thursday.  Please take the time to prepare your students for the drill.  You can refer to the one page summary of the drills in your red file (added this year) and/or your flip book for guidelines during lockdown drills.


  1. School based team with Kathy Grimm on Tuesday at 11:00 in Room 103
  2. Supervision Aide meeting on Wednesday at 11:00 in the staff room
  3. Aboriginal School based team on Thursday and Friday at 11:00 in Room 103
  4. First Student Council meeting of the year on Thursday at lunch in the library.  Please remind your reps.

Have a great four day week everyone!
