  • ORCHARD PARK - Monday September 24, 2018

    Remember to wear an Orange Shirt this Friday on September 28th to support all indigenous children that were taken from their homes to go to a residential school.  Remember that every child matters and should be treated with respect.

     

    Mark your calendars!  This Wednesday, September 26th is (#RowansLawDay) – a day to engage students, staff and coaches to increase awareness about concussions.   Wear purple (Rowan’s favorite colour) on Rowan’s Law Day! 

    Basketballs and Soccer balls - There are a few students who are bouncing and kicking sports balls in the hallways coming in and out at bell times.  This is unsafe and can damage the floor tiles in the hallways.  Please carry the recess equipment in your hands when travelling inside the building.  Teachers please monitor this and let the office know of any students who have to be reminded about this rule on a consistent basis.

    When the Bell Rings - games, shooting, kicking, all play should stop.  For example, students who continue to play basketball after the bell can cause injury to some students because they don’t expect the ball to be coming down on them while waiting to enter the building.  Teachers on black top duty, please remind students of this rule and again, let the office know of any students who continue to need reminders.

    Orchard Park will hold Orange Shirt day on September 28th, to recognize the indigenous children who were taken from their families to go to residential school.

     

    Phyllis Jack Webstad was one of the children taken from her home to go to residential school.

    On her first day of school, six year old Phyllis wore an orange shirt. When she arrived they stripped her and took away her orange shirt, replacing it with a uniform. From then on she felt as if her feelings did not matter. How would you feel if that happened to you?

    Every child matters for us at Orchard Park. On Friday September 28th, please remember to wear an orange shirt to support all indigenous children that were taken from their homes to residential school. Remember that every child matters and should be treated with respect.


    There is no French Choir today.

     

    Cross Country practice remember to sign in and begin your laps. Remember to pace yourself so you can run most of your route.
