Welcome to Our School!

Welcome

Happy New Year Buckhorn,

Looking forward to seeing you on the new start date for students, Wednesday, January 5th.  No lessons will be available on January 3rd or 4th as all staff will be using this time to plan.  Every child has their own RazKids (reading) and IXL (math) accounts to practice skills independently. 

Upon return, every child must complete a NEW screening tool every day.  Multiple students can be added to the same form if they attend the same school.  Please complete separate forms is students attend different schools. 

This confirmation portal is available here: https://forms.gle/vFMZ1PjDBJzLuX3o8

Please also consider sending your child with a labelled water bottle.

Every morning on the school announcements we think about four words, and as we connect each finger to our thumb we think about each word.  We practice the “hopeful four” because science tells us that our thoughts shape our reality.  Our positivity improves our happiness and the happiness of those around us. What better gift to have as we start the new year?

New to our family is Kim Wonnacott in the role of administrative assistant and Noel McNabb-Kidd as an Educational Assistant.  We thank Educational Assistants’ Courtney McMahon and Kyle Sorensen who are heading on to other adventures.  Courtney is expecting anytime, and Kyle has accepted a permanent position in another field.  We look forward to hearing how you both are doing.

On January 28 we will recognize Bell Let’s Talk Day in our classrooms. Teachers will promote awareness and action around four pillars: fighting stigma, improving access to mental health care, supporting world-class research, and leading by example in workplace mental health. Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund dollars support Peterborough’s youth walk-in services to help with issues ranging from bullying and family conflicts to suicidal thoughts and sexual identity.
