Carson Grove ES News Update - Week of Nov. 21

Carson Grove ES News Update - Week of Nov. 21
Posted on 11/21/2022

End of fall / beginning of winter weather is here!  Please be sure that your child comes to school ready to play outdoors.  The school does have some winter clothes for students to use.  Please have your child come to the office if they ever need outdoor clothing.  Indoor shoes are still also very important at this time of the year to help keep the school clean!

Parent-Teacher Interviews

Interviews will be held after school on Thursday, November 24th and during the morning of Friday, November 25th.  November 25th is a PA Day so there is no school for students.

Interview times will be sent home by homeroom teachers on Tuesday.  Like all interview times, there are limited spaces available when you think of how many students there are in an entire class (or the entire school).  Regular communication between home and school is ongoing throughout the school year.  

Accessing Grade 1 to 5 Progress Reports and Kindergarten Initial Observations

Families received their child’s Grade 1 to 5 Progress Reports and/or Kindergarten Initial Observations directly in their email on Thursday, November 17th.  The email from the school contains a link to download the secure PDF report card. Parents and guardians will need to enter their child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) to access the report card.

When entering the OEN, please include the hyphens (dashes).  The format should be XXX-XXX-XXX. The OEN can be found on any previous provincial report cards. The school sent home a copy of the OEN this past week.  Please contact the school office if you need any help. 

November 20 to 26 is Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week 

Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week is an opportunity for us all to reinforce clear and positive messages that bullying is not acceptable in our schools and communities. This week, we will be working to raise awareness and provide helpful information for how we can all work together to prevent and respond to bullying.  At Carson Grove, we will be talking about how we can all use our WITS when something or someone is bothering us:

Walk Away

Ignore

Talk It Out

Seek Help (from a Trusted Adult)
