Seven Teachings

In December, the Seven Teaching focus was love, which is represented by the eagle, who flies closest to the sun.  To know love is to know peace. Love is based on affection, respect and kindness and is to be given freely from the goodness of your heart.  Love refers not only to the traditional sense of love within families, but on the greater sense of being kind and thoughtful of others.

Enjoy these beautiful pictures that Mrs. Stevenson’s class drew about love.

Giving Tree Update

Thank you Linwood families for your generous support of the Giving Tree Club. 

Our Grade 2 members sorted and counted the warm outerwear collected. Our school community donated 84 hats, 40 pairs of mittens and 19 scarves for children in need!!

Last week's Coin Drive with our Parent Council partners raised over $420 for Sam’s Christmas.  Our Grade 3-5 students used the iPads to plan Christmas purchases for 17 children.  Mrs. Turner and Ms. Jensen will purchase these selected presents and wrap them in time for the hampers to be delivered this weekend.

We greatly appreciate the generosity of our Linwood families and our Giving Tree members. 
 
Happy holidays!

Exploring the Seven Teachings

This year, the staff and students of Linwood School will be exploring the Seven Sacred Teachings. The Aboriginal way of life is built around the seven natural laws, or sacred teachings. Each teaching honours one of the basic virtues to a full and healthy life.  An animal represents each teaching to emphasize the connection between people and the natural world.

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.

Outdoor Play & Cold Weather Policy

A healthy mind and healthy body go hand-in-hand. Outdoor recess is a time to connect with friends, and recharge through exercise. In this light, all students are expected to go outside for recess. 

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.

Important December Events- Conferences & Concert

Conferences
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

As the focus is on celebrating learning, and due to the fact that there will be multiple families together in the classroom, this is not the ideal time to discuss any concerns you may have about your child. If you would like to arrange to speak privately with your child’s teacher please contact her/him directly.

Concert
Our annual Winter Concert will be held on Wednesday, December 10th at St. James Collegiate at 6:30 PM.  Planning for this event is well underway!  A note containing all the pertinent details will come home with all students closer to the event. 

A Note from the Giving Tree Club

Hi parents and guardians,

We hope you can give neck warmers, hats and mittens for the Giving Tree Club. Please donate one or two things for kids who need them. We need your help. There are three giant bins by the office to put your donations in. Please give by Nov. 24th.

From,
Avirey (on behalf of Linwood School's Giving Tree Club)

Constable Cain at Linwood


Personal Safety Presentation

On October 27, the grades 2-3 students learned about different safety concepts from Constable Andrea Cain of the Winnipeg Police Service.  She used engaging music, videos and discussion to teach students how to identify unsafe situations and what to do to protect themselves. A few of the topics were: How to Identify Safe People and Places, Road Safety and Internet Safety. The children contributed relevant comments and asked questions. Please ask your child to share with you something learned from the presentation.


Internet Safety Presentation
Constable Andrea Cain encouraged the Grade 4 and 5 students to think carefully about their internet usage and online safety.

She encouraged parents to:

·       set limits around screen time

·       ensure that children only use their technology in family spaces

·       check their child’s accounts, chats and postings often

·       only allow children to download programs or apps with parental permission

·       cover webcams when not in use as they can be remotely activated

·       turn off geo-tracking on your child’s device so pictures cannot be tracked to your child’s location


The students learned that everything you post on the internet is there FOREVER and that everything you say or do online can be tracked back to you.  She taught to “THINK” before we post:

T – is it True?

H – is it Hurtful?

I – is it Illegal

N – is it Necessary?

K – is it Kind?

 
She taught the children to:

·       pick secure passwords and usernames and only share these with their parents

·       keep personal information private

·       know who their followers are – real friends not people met online

·       never say unkind things or make fun of people online – that’s cyber-bullying

·       block people and tell parents if someone says/does something inappropriate

·       never agree to meet someone in person that you met online without checking with a parent


 

Berm

Construction on the latest installment Parent Council's play space improvement is almost complete.  The berm (a small, low sloped hill) will be a wonderful feature on our playground.  The originally planned location of the berm was deemed too close to the crib (wooden perimeter) of the swings.  As such, the berm is located on the west side of the field along Winchester Street.  The next step in construction is to lay the sod.  The berm will remain surrounded by the existing snow fence for a period of time to let the sod take root.  We can't wait to play on the berm when it is ready!

A Message from Constable Sue


Hello to All!

 My name is Sue Zuk-Boyer, and I am the Winnipeg Police Service School Resource Officer for Linwood School this year.  The students and staff call me Cst. Sue.   I have been with the City of Winnipeg Police for over 28 years and an officer for 24 years.  This is my second year in the St James School Division and I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about our unit and program.

The School Resource Unit began over 10 years ago in the Winnipeg 1 School Division. It is jointly funded by the school division, the Province and the Winnipeg Police Service. Since its inception, the unit has grown to 13 constables, 1 patrol sergeant and 1 Sergeant. The 13 officers are responsible for approximately 133 schools within 3 divisions, those being Pembina Trails, Winnipeg and St. James. School Resource Officers (SRO’s) act as liaisons between the school divisions and the Winnipeg Police Service, and assist with many aspects of the daily functioning of the school.

The main duty of an SRO is to foster good relationships between the schools, public and police service. SRO’s can act as role models to the students and assist them in making positive choices to affect their future. An SRO needs to be approachable for the students so they feel comfortable coming forward and disclosing any dangerous activities that may be affecting the well-being of the students while at school.

An SRO can be called upon to offer legal direction to the school to deal with certain situations. While some situations may be serious, they may not necessarily be illegal, therefore SRO’s can offer direction as to how to handle the situation or assist with mediation. SRO’s can take reports from the school regarding property damage or thefts or assist with major reports that can be forwarded to the respective division for further investigation. SRO’s can also assist administrators with dealing with ongoing issues in the school in attempt to rectify them.

SRO’s can also affect arrests if necessary when dealing with students who have broken the law and need to be accountable through the justice system.

If at any time during the school year you may wish to contact me, please feel free to leave your name,number or email with the office staff and I will contact you,


I look forward to spending another year with the students at Linwood School!

 

Giving Tree Club

Roots of Empathy




We would like to welcome baby Max and his mom Vivi into our school community as our Roots of Empathy family this year. The Roots of Empathy program is an evidence-based classroom program that has shown dramatic effects in reducing aggression and raising social and emotional competence, as well as empathy, in school-aged children.

The students of Room 6 were delighted by Max’s toothless grin and started to learn what Max can do and what he prefers. They discovered that Max could communicate with his body and the sounds he makes. He likes looking at faces, listening to Room 6 singing and being with his mom. We look forward to an exciting year of learning with baby Max as our special teacher!

 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."

WITS Program

At Linwood School, we continue to encourage our students to “Use Their WITS”. This program is designed to help students resolve small conflicts independently and encourages children to seek help from adults.  

 
WITS is an acronym which stands for:

W = Walk away

                I  = Ignore

               T = Talk it out

               S = Seek help

 
The WITS acronym provides a common language and set of strategies to reduce negative peer interactions. Classroom teachers will deliver lessons connected to stories throughout the year about using the WITS strategies.

 
Students are taught to seek help right away if they do not feel safe, if someone is hurt or if a problem persists.
