Imagine No Bullying - Rider Presentation

On Friday, March 20, 2015, Glen Elm Community School was excited to host Saskatchewan Roughrider, Dan Clark as a presenter for the Red Cross Program, Imagine No Bullying. Our students learned to ACT and CARE.

ACT is an acronym that stands for

Avoid being alone with the bully

Call for help

Take a stand - stop it or report it

CARE is also an acronym that stands for

Check the scene for safety

Affirm the person being targeted and speak up against the bully

Retreat - and report the situation

End the incident by documenting what happened

All Glen Elm students in grades 5 to 8 attended and took the pledge from IAmStronger.ca. We would like to thank Ms. Evans for her work in organizing this event and SaskTel for sponsoring the Riders' players to attend our school and others throughout the province to share the message about reducing or removing bullying in our schools!

More Ways to Succeed in High School!

Regina Public Schools is implementing a new High School Strategy for the 2015/16 school year. The goal of this strategy is to create more equity of opportunities for all high school students in Regina Public Schools through a student’s neighbourhood high school, as well as providing access to Campus Regina Public programming.

This change is important to you and to students because it will more closely align elementary schools with their neighbourhood high schools and provide much greater access to curricular and extra-curricular programming for all students, regardless of where they live in the city of Regina. It will mean a much clearer and successful transition from elementary school to high school.  This change comes after consultation with parents, students, staff and the community.

The benefits to all high school students will be:

·         Access to a diverse set of quality courses and extracurricular programs at all neighbourhood high schools.

·         Access to more specialized programming for French Immersion, and enriched programming, including Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate.

·         Students will also benefit from programming at Martin Academy, as well as specific programs for students with intensive support needs.

·         All Grades 11 and 12 students will have access to Campus Regina Public courses, regardless of which high school they attend.

All Grade 8 students received a brochure detailing the changes and will also have had the opportunity to learn more at their neighbourhood high school open houses in February and March. We invite you to find out more. To find out more, Please contact your school principal and for more detailed information, please visit: http://www.rbe.sk.ca/our-schools/high-schools/high-school-strategy.

In the event of any cold weather/wind chill cancellations, parents will be notified by school connects telephone or text notification system. Please ensure that your correct contact information has been recorded at your school.

Online Payments

We would like to remind parents and guardians to complete payment of school fees at their earliest convenience. 
Payments can be made online or through the school’s main office.
 

You can now pay school based fees directly online. This saves the hassle of writing cheques and eliminates the need for students to carry cash or cheques to school.
