Dear Parents/Guardians: Brownridge Public School presents…“Move-a-thon 2019”

On May 17th, our Brownridge students will be participating in our Move-a-thon program.  It will be a fun day of moving and grooving with Bounce Entertainment.

Students will be seeking sponsorship from family and friends during the Move-a-thonThe exciting focus of this year’s event will be our modern learning journey!  Funds raised will contribute to purchasing new technology for the school.

Students will receive a ticket to place into a prize draw for returning their pledge form and for every $10.00 raised.  For example, if you return your pledge form and raise $100.00 you would get 11 tickets and 11 chances to win. The more you raise the better your chance of winning a prize.  AND….for every $100.00 raised, students will be able to place a raffle ticket in the Grand Prize draw for Beats Headphones or an Ipad Mini. Additional prizes consist of: Principal for day, gift cards to Walmart, McDonalds, Toys R Us, Tim Horton’s etc., floor hockey for you and 11 friends with lunch, 12 cake pops, Wii party for you and 3 friends, cupcake decorating for you and 5 friends, and much, much more!

Please return pledge forms no later than May 13th, 2019, regardless of whether or not funds are raised.  Our goal this year is to raise $10, 000!  If each student raises at least $30.00, then we can meet this goal!!

Hot Weather Action Plan at Brownridge

4 May

Did you know that the YRDSB has a Hot Weather Action plan? As you know, 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 implemented when the humidex reaches or exceeds 35 degrees Celsius.

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

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

Stay cool!

Using EDSBY to report a student absence

3 May

Dear Brownridge Families,

 Parents/guardians are being asked to report student absences online using EDSBY. Regular and punctual attendance affects school success and is expected of all students. It is important that students, families and school staff work together to ensure regular attendance.  Please notify the school as soon as possible if your child will be absent or late.  

 Reporting an absence online is now available through Edsby.  THERE IS EVEN AN EDSBY APP YOU CAN USE ON YOUR PERSONAL DEVICE FOR EVEN MORE EASE OF USE. If you have activated your Edsby account, you can login to Edsby and report your child’s absence online. This quick and simple method saves time and is easy to do.

You can access an online video tutorial to learn more (bit.ly/edsbyabsence) about how to do this.

 If you  have not yet created an Edsby account, please call the school to help you.

If you have any questions   please let us know.

Thanks,

The Brownridge Team
