Grapeview Families,

Happy New Year! January always feels like a new start here at school. It is the oppor-tunity to reflect on our previous year and set goals and expectation for the coming year for ourselves. Teachers often use this time to help students focus on goal setting. Help-ing a child to understand what they want to achieve, where they need to concentrate their efforts and helping them to set a plan in order to be successful can lead a child down a successful path. Goal setting can help students identify distraction that had pre-viously kept them from their goals. Goal setting can also improve academic perfor-mance, increase student motivation, self-confidence and increase pride and commitment to learning. The Term 1 Report Cards will be sent home early next month. The staff look forward to working together with you and your child to goal set and plan for achieve-ment in 2019. We look forward to another great month at Grapeview!
Sincerely,
Mr. S. Hancox and Ms. K. Veld

The Grapeview School Advisory council would like to invite families to an IAMANINUK Presentation on Thursday January 24th from 6pm – 7:30pm in the Grapeview Learning Commons.

Cindy Biancaniello will be presenting and her presentation will include a slide show of family photos from the Arctic that date back to 1897. She will give a brief family history and share stories. She will bring art, artifacts, tools, clothing, jewelry and weapons to show the parents and children what life is like in the Arctic as an Inuit. She allows the audience to enjoy a 'hands on' experience. Everything she brings is authentic and represents Inuit Culture both past and present.


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.
