Seeking input on names of 2 new schools
New School in LaSalle
New School on Mercer St. in Windsor
I have attached a one page summary of our findings from our bi-annual school climate surveys completed by students in grade 4 to 8, parents and staff. In looking at the data overall from all of our stake holders, Prince Andrew continues to be a very positive school in which to work and learn. Students have reported that they feel safe and welcome at school and have developed good strategies to deal with problems and issues when they arise. Parents feel that communication (thank you Edsby) between home and school is strong. Areas in need of focus include more opportunities to learn within our Ontario curriculum about our diverse population including our Indigenous people and providing healthier snack opportunities to our students, who report eating less than 2 fruits and vegetables per day. Overall the reports are very positive and I encourage greater participation next time from all parties to ensure all voices are heard. If you wish to see the full results of our surveys please contact the office to arrange an opportunity to view them. Thank you for the input into what makes Prince Andrew Public School a great place to grow and learn!
What is Pink Shirt Day?
Pink Shirt Day is a day to stand together against bullying. The day started many years ago when a boy wore a pink shirt to school and people made fun of him. The next day, other students wore pink shirts to school to support this boy.
When is Pink Shirt Day?
This year, Pink Shirt Day is on Wednesday, February 27th.
What is bullying?
Bullying is a form of aggression where there is a power imbalance. That means that the person doing the bullying has power over the person who is being bullied.
What types of bullying are there?
There are many types of bullying, including physical (such as hitting), verbal (such as name-calling), social (such as gossiping or spreading rumours) and cyberbullying (such as using social media to make fun of someone).
What else should I know about bullying?
Bullying isn't just a part of growing up - it's overwhelming, hurtful, and can make people feel alone. It can affect learning, friendships, physical and emotional health.
What can I do about bullying?
If you are a victim of bullying, reach out for help. Talk to a parent, teacher or friend.
Do you have a friend who is being bullied? Let them know they are not alone and speak out.
A bystander is someone who watches bullying happen. Did you know that most bullying stops within 10 seconds if a bystander steps in to help?
On Wednesday, February 27th, we ask all Panthers to wear pink as a sign that bullying will not be tolerated at Prince Andrew.
Hello Prince Andrew Learning Community. I have created a new Document folder on the right side of this page entitled Math Resources for Home. Each month during the first week I will publish a one page document for all of you to access. The document will include 1 or 2 articles for you to read, at least 2 web based resources for you to engage in with your child, and 1 game to play with your child. All of these will centre around math learning.
I hope you take the time to look at these resources and engage in math learning with your children at home. If you have any questions please call the school and we would be happy to help in any way.
Mr. S. Dufour
