Brownridge Bears Update

27 Oct

HALLOWEEN

A reminder to parents/Guardians and students that Halloween is approaching. We ask that you please do not send in Halloween treats or food items for the entire class. Please pay close attention when packing lunches with Halloween treats. Remember to pack lunches that are healthy and nut free.

 

A friendly reminder that students celebrating this occasion in costume at Brownridge PS. must comply with the policy. Costume accessories including, but not limited to toy guns, knives, axes, swords, etc., are not in compliance with York Region District School Board’s Safe Schools Policy #668.0. Masks will only be allowed to be worn at times when the teacher deems it appropriate.

 Costumes should be respectful of others. For example, if something is representative of a person’s culture or religious beliefs, then it should not be worn as another person’s costume.

Students will continue to be engaged in curriculum related, meaningful activities during the day.

 TRY EVERYTHING- GROWTH MINDSET

As we promote “try everything” as a way of thinking and believing at Brownridge, we encourage everyone to learn by failing. This is a huge change from the norm. Too often students are encouraged to “get it right,” or are praised for getting the correct answers. Modeling the importance of “getting it wrong” to make the learning more meaningful is an important step to help our students (and ourselves) deepen their learning and connecting their learning beyond the four walls of our school. How will you support and promote the message of “try everything”?

 YMCA Child Care-

 Have a great weekend!
