At Linwood School, we will focus on one teaching each month. Each classroom will explore the teaching in a manner that is age-appropriate and may include writing, talking circles, drama, technology or art.
The seven teachings to be explored are:
November: Respect - The Buffalo
December: Love – Eagle
January: Courage – Bear
February: Honesty – Sabe (Sasquatch)
March: Wisdom – Beaver
April: Humility – Wolf
May: Truth – Turtle
In November, the children have learned how to show respect to themselves, others and the earth. Students explored the teaching through writing, talking circles, drama, technology or art. Many classrooms explored the “Buffalo Box” to learn how the First Nations people showed respect to the bison by using every part and wasting nothing at all.

Generally speaking, a child who is too sick to go outside at recess is too sick to benefit from attending school. We do not have indoor supervision for students during recess. Indoor recess is only permitted in exceptional circumstances.
During severe weather conditions, as outlined by division policy, all students will be supervised indoors. When the wind chill hazard is at or colder than -29 degrees students will not be permitted outdoors. When the wind chill hazard is between -25 degrees and -28 degrees students may go outdoors for a shorter outdoor recess, up to 10 minutes. We call this shorter recess a "fresh air break".
Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather everyday as conditions often change throughout the day. Many families also choose to send extra socks and/or mittens in their child's backpack for extra comfort when gear ends up wet.

On Thursday, December 4th and Friday, December 5th, we will be having our Tri-conferences. The purpose of these conferences, led by the student, is to share what is happening in the classroom and to give students the opportunity to demonstrate, reflect on, and celebrate their own individual growth.
Conferences will run Thursday evening from 4:30pm – 7:00 pm and Friday morning from 9:30-11:15. There are no classes for students Friday. The sign-up form for conferences will come home with your child's report card on November 26th.

On September 24th, we participated in the Terry Fox National School Run. All of our staff and students walked or ran in support of Terry Fox. Over the week, our students have been bringing in donations for cancer research and learning about Terry Fox. He has inspired many people to never give up on their dreams. Thank you to parents, staff, and students for your continued support.
Room 1 (Grade 1) says: "We are learning about Terry Fox. Terry Fox is special because he ran across Canada to raise money for cancer. He ran to help others because he cared about them. He is very important to all of us. We made a video about Terry Fox to share with you. We hope you like it."
