Super in 7 Summer School Program 2018

The “Super In 7” program will provide an experience to help students currently in Grade 6 prepare for Grade 7. At the end of the program, a progress report is mailed home with a copy sent to the student’s day school. The report highlights the focus of the Summer School curriculum in Language, Mathematics and Skills for School Success and provides some indication of the benefits of the Summer School program for the student.

The Summer School site in Niagara Falls is A.N. Myer School. It runs July 4-24th 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. The registration form is due by June 22, 2018. If you are interested in enrolling for Summer School, please contact Mrs. Lamb at debbie.lamb@dsbn.org or call our school at 905-358-5142

School Vandalism

Now that the warm weather has arrived, we seek your cooperation in reducing school vandalism. Should you observe an unusual activity at our school, please call in confidence either of the following emergency numbers: 905.682.8065 or 905.563.1293. Also, if you notice children on the roof, please contact the Niagara Regional Police (905.688.4111) as this is extremely unsafe and those engaging in this behaviour are trespassing on DSBN property. We appreciate your assistance with these matters. As you can imagine graffiti and other damage is very costly to remove/repair, not to mention how unsightly it can be.

Spring is Here! Some Outdoor Safety Tips

One of the most exciting things about the weather warming up is all the opportunity children have to enjoy outdoor activities such as sports, games and time with friends. With children spending more time outdoors, we would like to remind all students about the importance of staying safe. To help ensure the safety of all children, we regularly review our safety guidelines with students. We recommend, when you have an opportunity, that parents/guardians also discuss these guidelines with children at home.

  • Don’t talk to strangers
  • Always walk to and from school with a buddy.
  • Do not take short cuts through alleys, parks, fields, etc. even if they are well lit
  • Let someone know where you are and where you are going
  • If you suspect someone is following you, RUN! Go to the nearest safe place
  • If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, go to the nearest safe place
  • Walk confidently and be aware of your surroundings
  • Never, ever get into a stranger’s vehicle
  • We appreciate your help! By working together, we can help students enjoy their time outdoors safely and responsibly.

The sun is back!

The sun is shining and it’s time to get outside to play! But before you run outside, make sure you remember your 5 S’s…

Slip: on some clothes that will protect your skin from the sun (loose-fitting and tightly woven are best).

Slop: on some sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 and filters UVA & UVB rays (broad-spectrum). Put sunscreen on 20 minutes BEFORE you go outside, so it can soak in. Don’t forget your ears, nose and feet if you are wearing sandals! Lips should also be protected with SPF 30 lip balm.

Slap: on a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face, ears and neck

Seek: shade when outside between 11am-4pm

Slide: on some sunglasses that have 100% UVA & UVB filters.

Attention moms, dads, coaches and caregivers: sun damage can happen quickly, so make sure youth remember sunscreen for lunch break, gym class, track and field and other outdoor activities. For more information, talk to your school nurse.

 


At the DSBN, we strive to show all students how they matter: as individuals, as learners and as community members. Our students learn about the ideals of good citizenship and how they can become active participants in building a stronger community, locally and globally. We invite you to discover more about I Matter by visiting dsbn.org/imatter
