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:

  1. Grades 5-8 - 10:30 in the gym until 11:15

  2. 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 reminding students that should they encounter difficulty when they are off property, that they should return to school for help. Students with phones are welcome to call the school for help as well. We want all of our students to feel safe whether at school, coming, or going. Please help by reinforcing this message with your children and ensuring that if they have phones that the school’s number is programmed in their contacts.


International Certificate Program - Discover Your World (Grade 8 students)

Join us for an information session for students in grades 8-12 about the OCDSB’s International Certificate Program. This global citizenship initiative gives students direct access to intercultural opportunities at the local, national, and international levels. Meeting starts at 6:30 at Confederation Education Centre on Wednesday, November 15. ICP Image


Name the Train Contest

Children and youth aged 16 and under are invited to submit names at octranspo.com/ready4rail for the 34 O-Train Confederation Line train cars and the 6 O-Train Trillium Line train cars. Name submissions will be accepted from now until December 8, 2017.

Teachers have a lot of students and need some way to measure both their success at teaching and their students comprehension of the materials. If the method is kept pure then exams will show whether progress is being made. As a teacher it should only be one part of the formula for determining if the student is learning.

whilst the choice is between a republic it's always failed to provide them the fundamental requirements of survival, and an empire that they've convinced themselves will, which colonial powers the empire covorts with is continually going to be secondary to without a doubt, yknow, ingesting. The impoverished training have historically tended to skew reactionary for this reason.
