May 25- Info to know from Brownridge!

25 May

Hello Parents and Guardians!

  1. NEXT WEEK IS BIKE TO SCHOOL WEEK! Let’s get rolling! Ride your Bike to School from May 28 to June 1, 2018! Riding your bike to school:
  • is fun!
  • gets you active!
  • reduces traffic congestion!
  • reduces your carbon footprint!

2. We are still hoping to get more pictures for our Brownridge Family Tree that is growing in the front foyer. Send your family photo in asap!

3. It is getting hot outside!  Warm weather brings with it enjoyable activities, but hot weather can also endanger our health because of heat stress. At Brownridge, we have a Hot Weather Action Plan that is implemented when the humidex reaches or exceeds 35 degrees Celsius.

The Hot Weather Action Plan includes:
Limit outdoor activities
Encourage the drinking of water for re-hydration
Keeping blinds, curtains closed in classrooms directly exposed to sunlight and turn off any unnecessary lights and Use of board approved fans in the classrooms to circulate air.

Parents are reminded to:
Send students to school with light clothing that adheres to our dress code.
Apply sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher)
Send students with a wide brimmed hat for outdoor recesses

4. Pre-order your food (On School Cash Online) now for the upcoming epic Brownridge Funfair! It’s happening on Tuesday, June 5th from 5:30pm-8pm. Click Auction items for a huge list of items that will be available to bid on at the Silent Auction.

5. Thank you to the kindergarten team for hosting the Welcome to Kindergarten Night for our new JK’s coming to Brownridge in September. Thank you as well to the students in grade 7 and 8 who supported throughout the evening.

6. Staff and students walked with pride as we joined the YMCA kids Challenge on Thursday. We helped raise important funds while being physically active at the same time.

7. Track and Field for students in grades 4-8 is taking place on Thursday, May 31. It is going to be awesome!

8. Thank you to the parents who have been helping out with hot lunches this year. The program would not have been possible without you! If anyone is available for an hour on a Monday and/or Friday between now and the end of June please let the office know.
