Dear Parents and Guardians of Broadview Public School, I told the students during this morning’s announcements that today is a big day for Broadview! Progress Reports go home today! If additional copies of the progress reports are required for your family, please make sure your child’s homeroom teacher is aware so that we can accommodate. Progress Reports are meant to start a conversation. Please sit down with your child and review this report. It is early in the year and an opportune time to ask children about their learning and to remind them that every day at school is important. Read through the comments and ask them about what they’ve learned so far, what they are looking forward to learning, what they enjoy, and what they find challenging. Engaging your children in conversations about how they learn is a great way to show them how much you care, and to model enthusiasm and joy of learning. Parent Teacher Interviews will be on the evening of Thursday, November 23 and the morning of Friday, November 24. Further communication regarding booking an interview will be coming in the next week. Remembrance Day Ceremonies @ Broadview PS We will be observing Remembrance Day on Friday, November 10, here at Broadview PS. Members of the community are encouraged to join us for the ceremonies. We will be having two ceremonies open to the public: Grades 5-8 - 10:30 in the gym until 11:15 Grades 2-4 - 1:00 in the gym until 2:05 Our Kindergarten and grade 1 students will be observing Remembrance Day at 10:40 outside the library. As this ceremony will have limited space for guests, we ask that you plan to join us for one of the two ceremonies in the gym. Thank you. Cookie Dough / Magazine Fundraiser The Holiday season is around the corner! Don’t forget to place your cookie dough and magazine subscription orders. Go to www.qsp.ca and use the code 3727815. Please use paper order forms if paying by cash or cheque (cheques may be made payable to Broadview School Council). Deadline to return orders to the school or online is Monday, November 20, 2017. Parking Lot Routines While we await our signage for our new parking lot, we are reminding our community that the main parking lot is off limits to the public between 8:30 and 4:30 pm. During these hours, the parking lot is accessible only to staff and OSTA vehicles. This parking lot has one entrance and one exit as well. The entrance is the single lane road between the old Broadview and Nepean High School, and the exit is at Avondale. Please do not enter the parking lot under any circumstances at the Avondale/Broadview intersection. Our school crossing guard was reporting excessive traffic and drivers engaging in unsafe practices. The small parking lot at the west end of the school off Dovercourt is also off limits at all times except for accessible parking - it may not be used to drop students off. Your cooperation helps make our school a safer place for our students. Updated Website Our website has been updated and now includes a link on the home page for our daily announcements. I’m also experimenting with a Principal’s Blog that will contain messages like this one you’re reading. The Blog gives you an option of subscribing to notifications, should you choose to do so. Thank you to our community for providing suggestions on how to enhance home/school communication. Please consider following our school on Twitter. We were pleased to see that the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change recognized our recycling efforts while visiting Broadview on the weekend! Dogs on School Property Our new soccer field is open and the students are really enjoying it. Please be reminded that dogs should not be on school property at any time of day or evening. Staying Safe Off School Property Many of our students walk to and from school independently, and many of our grade 7 and 8 students enjoy leaving school property during 1st nutrition break. I will be remi

Dear Parents and Guardians of Broadview Public School, I hope you finished your yard work on Saturday because we’ve got lots of wet weather in the forecast! I have some quick updates for you for this week: Weather Kids need to run and play outdoors. With a wet forecast for much of this week, please ensure your children are coming to school prepared to be outside. We’ll send students out in a light drizzle. Students will stay in with heavy rain. This means rain coats, hats, rubber boots, and mitts if the temperature is cool. Website Upgrades Our website was recently upgraded and I’ve been working hard to add content. Should you have any suggestions of anything you’d like to see added, please send me an email with Website Suggestion in the subject line. Halloween Hallowe’en is fast approaching and many children are excited about this day.  If they wish, students may wear a costume to school on Tuesday, October 31st, however, accessories such as masks, toy weapons and jewelry should stay at home.  Please also ensure that the costumes are comfortable and safe for participating in regular school activities. In some classes, special activities have been planned for part of the day.  As a reminder, please do not send food for students to share unless you have cleared it with your child’s homeroom teacher.  We have children with life-threatening allergies and the health and safety of all of our students is our highest priority. Thank you in advance for your support. Regards, Dennis ParĂ© Principal - Broadview Public School dennis.pare@ocdsb.ca Upcoming Events - these events can be found on the school calendar.
