Dear Grapeview Families,


We have had another successful month at Grapeview. Students have been involved in many different activities including volleyball, basketball, dance, musical production, coding, math clubs just to name a few. We ended November with our celebration Assembly where we recognized students of the month for their achievements in academics and positive character. We also celebrated all teams, clubs and groups that had success this past month. Looking ahead our focus in December will be kindness by giving of ones self. This is a great time of the year to pause to be thankful, reflect and give.
We had a very successful Movie Night last month, hosted by our Parent Council. Thank you! It was so nice to see our community come together and enjoy each others’ company. This month we are also hosting events to continue to build community spirit. On December 6, Mr. Arm-strong has arranged a day for all students to participate in a wide variety of STEM Challenges. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Engaging in STEM activities challenges students to use and build skills in problem solving, exploratory learning and critical thinking. Students will need these skills for success in their future endeavors. On the evening of the 6th we are inviting families into the building so student can share their learning from the day and also try out some new activities. This evening the Scholastic Book Fair will also be open late for families to do some shopping. We will have a Community Care bin for can good donations.
Ice Dogs game for Grapeview is December 13. We hope to see many families out cheering for our local team.
On December 18 we are trying something new. We are welcoming families to join us in celebrating the season with an evening bus trip to the Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls and then to come back to the school to share in hot chocolate and cookies. Both the Ice Dogs Event and the Festival of Lights Event will be up on Cash on Line .
Finally, we want to take a moment to share our thanks for a great beginning to our school year. Grapeview is a great place to work , learn and grow in each day. We are thankful to our families for sending wonderful students that make each of our days meaningful. We wish all our families a safe, healthy and happy December and all the best to you for 2019.
Sincerely,
Mr. Simon 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.
