IMPORTANT Traffic Alert



Walk to School 1.jpg 
 
 
 
 Kerrisdale has an opportunity to increase our healthy living goals by walking 5 minutes. Research tells us that walking 5 minutes before school helps to increase students’ ability to be alert and ready to learn.


Important Traffic Alert

The City of Vancouver will be replacing sewers on 39th between Carnarvon and Mackenzie. 39th will be completely closed starting on Tuesday, Feb. 20th.  This is our opportunity to implement “Drive to Five.”  Please park on 41st, 38th, 37th or 36th and then walk 5 minutes to the school.

The City engineers also have suggested that students not walk down 39th while it is closed. Students walking should use 38th or 41st.

 

In order to keep the traffic flowing on 39th west of the school please do not park on the south side of the street. This is a drop off zone only. Please drop your child and keep moving. This will really help to minimize that congestion on 39th.

 

There will be a flag person on the corner of 39th and Carnarvon who will help with the flow of traffic. In order to minimize the impact of the construction we would hope that everyone will take 5 minutes in the morning to walk in from 41st,38th,37th or 36th.         

Thanks!

School Goal 2017/2108 is Resilience

Dear Parents,

As you are aware the School Goal for 2017-18 is Resilience. Teachers are working in their classes to talk about what it means to be resilient. Our counselor, Ms Yee is also working in classes as well. We have created a document teachers can access that provides vocabulary both in French and English, see below.

In order to support this school-wide goal Mr. Bemister and I are in the process of going to each class to do a presentation on Resilience and what it means. We are using the following short video as a starting point for discussion. We are quite impressed with the students’ ability to recognize the kinds of qualities that help to promote resilience, such as courage, confidence, flexibility, optimism, persistance, determination, perseverance, etc.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwsZZ2rprqc


We hope that you will take a minute to check out this video and have a discussion at home about what it takes to have “GRIT”.

Common language for teachers to use when teaching/talking about Resiliency.
