Students are reminded that coming to class on time is very important to avoid interruptions to learning, both for yourself and for your classmates.

Desire2Learn (D2L)

This year we are continuing to use an online tool called D2L . This application is designed to be a virtual extension to the classroom and allows teachers to provide students and parents with information and communication tools to enhance learning. Students/parents will log into D2L using their child's CBE id number and network password.

Bullying

If you are being bullied:
  • You are not alone, lots of other kids and adults around you have experienced the same thing.
  • You are a victim and not to blame.
  • You should tell some one - don't be ashamed.  Ask or call:
    . . . a teacher or guidance counsellor
      . . . a parent or relative
      . . . a friend
  • Don't allow the bully to make you feel small -   Say nice things to yourself
  • Assert yourself . . .    Look the bully in the eye and say "STOP DOING THAT"
  • Walk away from the bully - walk out in the open or toward an adult - NOT into a corner or sheltered area!
  • Look the other way and ignore the bully
  • Join with other friends. Bullies hardly ever pick on someone if they are with others in a group
  • If someone continues to bully you or threatens you with violence, get the help of an adult immediately.
What can YOU do if you see someone else being bullied?
  • Help a friend. Try to stop the bullying. There's safety in  numbers.
  • If the situation continues or looks dangerous, get help from an adult immediately.
