Dear Parent:
 
Re: Occupational Therapists in the Classroom
 
Over the past several years, the John McGivney Children’s Centre (JMCC) has worked with our local school boards and provided occupational therapy services within the classroom setting. Occupational Therapists (OT) are health professionals who work with children in many different settings and understand fine motor, gross motor, self-care, and self-regulation development.  OTs visit classrooms to work with teachers to help students having difficulty with fine motor (printing, cutting), gross motor (jumping, throwing), self-care (putting on coat, zippers, opening packages), and self-regulation (being able to control emotions and actions). 
 
An OT may observe students in their classrooms, the gym, or playground. The OT will assist teachers and school staff with activity ideas, trying different materials, tools, and ways for students to participate in classroom activities and routines. The OTs will also support teachers during the year to monitor progress and provide more suggestions. The OT may trial different types of pencil grips, scissors or active seating (movement cushion, wobble stool) to see if these items help a student learn in the classroom. Teachers may share ideas with you that they are using in their classroom to help your child.
 
If through this program your child appears to need more help with their fine motor, gross motor, self-care, or self-regulation skills, the teacher will ask your permission to share your contact info with JMCC. Next, the JMCC Intake Department will call you to make a plan for additional OT services. The OT will follow-up with you to discuss your child’s needs and recommendations.
 
If you have any concerns about your child in the above areas, please let your child’s teacher know.  If you have any questions about this service, please talk to your child’s Principal.

Green Heart Lunches at Jack Miner Public School

At Jack Miner Public School we support the Green Heart Lunch Club.  Our Green Heart Lunch day is every Monday. 

Green Heart Lunch Club is an affordable, convenient, and healthy lunch program. Their mission is to build a healthier future for our kids and community, one lunch at a time.

The Green Heart Lunch Club is operated by Green Heart Catering Services. Their team is based in (and from) Essex County and have a passion for food—real food! They care about where food comes from, how it is grown, and how it is made. The seasonal, six week rotating menu is carefully designed by a Certified Nutritionist and they only use the best quality ingredients to ensure all of your child’s nutritional needs are met. It is important for them to support local farmers and they strive to promote the health and well-being of children and youth in our community.
