We have had a great month at Grapeview and are hoping for calmer, warmer weather for the month of March. Our field and playground are quiet wet and there are days that we do ask students to stay to the tarmac, with that being said some of our students still find their way into puddles. It is a great idea to have a change of clothes in your child’s backpack just incase the curiosity of a puddle is too great.

Our Choose Kind Campaign kicked off this week. Congratulations to our Student Ambassador’s for encouraging all of us to always choose kindness. We would like to thank the Leighfield family for showing kindness by making and hosting a luncheon for staff. The effort and gift was truly appreciated. Demonstrating and receiving thanks and kindness whether big acts or small are always a reminder that it is easy to make someone’s day. Our Students Ambassadors have planned two weeks filled with lessons and activities that celebrate student citizenship and our uniqueness, which makes Grapeview and our world a special place to be. It is important to approach all situations with kindness in our hearts. People make mistakes which we all learn from and when we approach situations and conflicts with kindness we can usually come to a mutual resolution. Our students are learning to embrace the choose kind notion. A simple thank you, an acknowledgement of a great quality or a random act of kindness is what we hope to encourage these next two weeks and continue for the rest of the year. We are Gryphon proud.

With 4 months left in the school year we are looking forward to a continued focus on learning. Thank you for your support and effort at home to ensure your child is being successful. We are also looking forward to the many upcoming events and activities that will fill the months ahead.

Wishing all our students and their families a well deserved March Break. Be safe and have fun.


Mr. S. Hancox and Ms. K. Veld


More Ways to Communicate:

Grapeview has a variety of ways to communicate with our families and we want to make sure you all have the opportunity to engage with the methods that work best for you. In order to be more eco-friendly we try to avoid sending paper copies home as much as we can.  We are committed to keep our website up to date with important information, School Advisory Council updates, important dates, monthly newsletters, etc. We also have a Twitter Feed: @GrapeviewSchool for us to update the community as well.  We are also starting a schoolwide Remind App page for brief reminders via text messages.  If you are interested, please click on the link below.

Scent Aware-Reduced Environment:

Grapeview is a Scent-Reduced Environment: many people have a sensitivity to odours, smells, and scents. Please do not wear, or send your child with, perfume, cologne, after shave, or scented body lotion into the school.

Keeping our School Safe and Healthy

If you have a child with a Prevalent Medical Condition (Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, and/or Epilepsy) we want to make sure we have a current Plan of Care to support your child.  

The Plan of Care form is a new document that replaces the Emergency Action Plan. All parents of children with Prevalent Medical Conditions are asked to fill out the new Plan of Care and submit to the school.

You can download the forms here dsbn.org/prevalent-medical-conditions.

For more information, please contact the school.
