Principal’s Message from the Bulldog Bulletin - November 3, 2017
We hope all of our farm families were able to complete their fall harvest.
During the month of October we hosted our ﬁrst Health Day for our students. Senior high focused their time with various post-secondary institutions. Students gained insights into the different programs and opportunities the different places have to offer. Junior high and elementary students attended various sessions offered by staff, outside agencies, and our local fire department. We are grateful to all of our presenters and we are looking forward to the November Health Day. All of the sessions designed target various health curriculum topics. Students will be assessed on their participation and engagement during the day’s sessions. If you have any topics you believe students will beneﬁt from, please do not hesitate to contact the school with your ideas.
At the next school council meeting on November 22 at 8:30 AM, the results of the Accountability Pillar will be shared with those in attendance. Shortly after that, our Three Year Plan will be made available on our school website for everyone to review. If you are free to join us at the next school council meeting, we would be delighted to have you.
Literacy and numeracy continue to be focus areas for our school. Attached to this month’s Bulldog Bulletin (found on the TCS website under Publications) are two pieces of literacy for parents and students. The first item, Ten Tips for Early Literacy, provides parents some meaningful strategies to incorporate into their home reading time with early readers. The Money Management Tips for Teens outlines some beneﬁcial resources teens can review to build a positive ﬁnancial literacy future. It is never too early for teens to learn about money matters. Hopefully there are some ideas parents can use to guide their children.
There are several upcoming events happening in the month of November. We are hosting our second day of Parent Teacher Interviews on Thursday, November 9 from 4:30 - 7:30. If you did not have an opportunity to join us on the ﬁrst night, please attend if you are able. On November 10 at 10:30 we will be having our Remembrance Day Service at the school. Parents and community members are welcome to join us. November 13-17 is our fall break and we wish all of our families a safe and enjoyable time together.
