Medical Conditions – Parent/Guardian Packages: Given that the school year is drawing to a close, please assist us by addressing the following items:
- If we currently hold medication for your child, please note that it must be picked up by dismissal (2:05 p.m.) on Friday, June 28, 2019. We do not store medications over the summer.
Medication or any other medical apparatus (i.e. AeroChamber ®, EpiPen ®),
which is not picked up will be sent home with your child at dismissal. For safety reasons, please immediately inspect your child’s backpack for medications upon arrival at home.
- We are sending home health care forms for the 2019-2020 school year. Please complete the forms. The completed forms MUST be completed and returned to the school during the week of August 26, 2019. Please DO NOT return the new forms package prior to the end of the current school year (June 28, 2019).
With these completed forms, please provide:
- Updated medication for the 2019-2020 school year in a Ziploc® bag that is clearly labeled with your child’s name.
- For PRESCRIBED medications, complete MEDS.1-P form (Request and Consent for the Administration of Prescribed Medication) PRIOR to your child’s first day in September 2019.
Please understand that at the beginning of the school year, parents assume complete responsibility for the administration of the medications their children require until such time as all the requirements of #2 above are satisfied in full.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation regarding the safe provision of medication and the information pertaining to your child. Their safety, and the safety of all other students, is our priority.
Dressing for the Weather: With the warm weather we have been experiencing, it is important that students are dressed appropriately for recess. Please send your child to school with a hat and a water bottle to ensure that they are comfortable throughout the day. We would encourage you to make applying sunscreen part of your morning routine rather than send it to school. If you are sending sunscreen to school, please make sure that it is not a spray application as the sprays can make floors slippery if misapplied.
Play Day- Wednesday June 26 (rain date June 27)-Students are asked to come in comfortable clothing and running shoes to enjoy this fun filled day! Thank you Mme. Poste for organizing the morning!
Promoting Well-Being – The 40 Developmental Assets®
The Search Institute’s Developmental Assets are positive experiences, opportunities and personal qualities that all children need to reach their full potential.
The more assets a child has, the less likely they are to engage in high risk behaviour and the more likely they are to thrive. There are a total of 40 assets that are divided into two categories: Internal assets and external assets.
Internal assets are the values and skills that children develop and take up within themselves.
- Commitment to Learning
- Positive Values
- Social Competencies
- Positive Identity
External assets are developed through connections with others in their school, at home and in the community.
- Boundaries and Expectations
- Constructive use of Time
We all play an important role in building assets in children. For more information on how you as a parent can build assets in your children, please visit: Parent Further website and check out our HaltonParents Blog: You are amazing just the way you are!
