Grapeview Families:

Thank you for supporting Grapeview in so many ways this past month, including the Terry Fox Fundraiser, our Pumpkin Fundraiser for our Intermediate Initiatives, coming to our Paul Davis Presentation planned by out Parent Council and daily supporting your child and our teachers to make Grapeview a great place to learn each day.
We have a couple of community events this month starting with our Student of the Month Assembly Friday, November 2. Our Parent Council is hosting a Movie Night November 8. We will be our honouring Remembrance Day with an assembly on Friday, November 9. All families are welcome to attend. It will start at 10:45-11:00. We also have a variety of activities an events happening this month. Please make note of the events and dates posted on the side bar and on the school website (which we update regularly).
As educators we are life long learners. We are dedicated to learning how best to edu-cate, inspire and instill that love for learning with our students. The P.A.Day in October was an opportunity for staff to focus on our student assessment results. We have set targets and are continuing to focus teacher learning on literacy and mathematics. We know that learning to read is so critical which is why this needs to be a focus, especially in the early primary grades (K-1). Parents and teachers are partners in a child’s education and we encourage you to join us in helping your child(ren) learn to read. Enjoying a book together, reading signs when you are out together and reading and writing together using technology are just a few ways to engage in literacy as a family. Mathematics also continues to be an area of focus. Learning mathematics forces students to learn how to think and to solve problems using logic. It also teaches students to be precise in thoughts and words. The Progress Reports that will be going home next week are a chance for you to reflect on how your child(ren) are learning in both math and literacy. If you have questions on how you can support the learning at home please ask your child’s teacher during your upcoming interview time. This meeting will be an excellent opportunity to work as a team and set a plan to ensure your child’s success.
Looking forward to another great month of learning at Grapeview!
Sincerely,
Mr. 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.

At DSBN high schools, students are the stars.

From November 26-29, see all the opportunities schools offer to help students achieve success and #Instafame.

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.
