HOLIDAY BAZAAR AT THE WINTER CELEBRATION

This year we planning to have the Holiday Bazaar at the school Winter Celebration. The items that will be presented are made by the Massey students. All profits from the Bazaar will go for purchasing "The Gift of Hope" through "Plan International" ( please visit www.plancanada.ca/greatgifts) for a community that is not as well off as us. This way we will teach our students to realize how fortunate we are and to care about others.

We encourage our students and their parents to support this activity and show that we really care!

If your child wishes to participate in the Holiday Bazaar please contact Svetlana at sveta_deleyssac@list.ru 

 

Dear Massey families,

We will be having our Célébration d`hiver (Winter Celebration) next week!   December 8th from 6:30 to 8 pm, we will be opening École Massey School to all Massey families.

We will have a variety of activities open to families, including a photo booth, games, a café, and much more. The Massey choir will make an appearance, caroling in the halls for your enjoyment. Families will get a passbook as they enter the school, and are encouraged to gather participation stamps from as many activities as possible, in a carnival type atmosphere. There will be a small charge for a few activities (eg, refreshments, raffle tickets), but most are just participating in activities as a family in the different rooms of the school.  At the end of your visit, you can enter your passport for a prize draw.

A couple housekeeping items: For parking, please do not park in the teacher parking lot or the bus bay. To avoid a tripping hazard of shoes in the doorway, we ask all attendees to remove their boots as they come in the front door and carry them to the boot rack where their child puts their boots. Let’s keep our school clean!

We look forward to seeing you at our celebration!

Regina Transit Safe Bus Program - Good information to share with your children!

The Safe Bus program is a community partnership between the Regina Transit, Crime Stoppers, and the Regina Police Service external link icon.

The Safe Bus program provides a safe haven for anyone who is in need of help. If you are lost, hurt or in trouble, flag down a Regina Transit bus, or get on at any bus stop.

Trained transit personnel have direct 9-1-1 access and can help mobilize the appropriate community resources to provide assistance. You DO NOT need to pay a fare to get help through the Safe Bus program.

Teach your children that if they are lost, cold, frightened or hurt, they can hold up their hand (palm facing out) in the direction of an approaching bus to signal the driver that they need help. Bus operators are trained to recognize this as a sign of distress and will stop to help your child.

 

You can download Regina Transit’sSafe Bus Colouring and Activity Book  to help explain the Safe Bus program to your child.

First day of school... here's what's happening!

We look forward to seeing all of our students and new students from Grade 1 to Grade 8 at École Massey on Thursday morning, September 1st.  Kindergarten students have a staggered start.  We invite Kindergarten parents to find the date their child is attending in the letter that was sent out in June 2016.  If you were not registered by the end of June, please call the office to know if your child starts school on Thursday or Friday.

First Day of School Procedures:

All of our students including Kindergarten students will be meeting their teachers at the back of the school on the playground.  All teachers will be there to greet students and lead them to their appropriate grade grouping.  The class lists will be posted on the walls of the school. This is the same procedure we used last year.  If your child is new to the school, please have him/her follow this procedure.  Whether your child is riding the bus, walking or being driven to school, direct him/her to walk to the back of the school and look for class lists on the wall.  If your child cannot read, have them look for smaller students and head in that direction.  Teachers and teacher assistants will be looking for students who do not know where to go.  Your child will find a home.  Encourage your child to ask for help if they are confused.  We will have bus monitors to help direct new students to the appropriate area on the playground.

 

School Day:

The school day is as follows:       

      Supervision of students - 8:40

      School begins - 8:53

      Morning recess - 10:15-10:30

      Lunch hour - 11:45-12:30

      Lunch recess- 12:30-12:45

      Afternoon classes begin - 12:45

      Afternoon recess - 2:00-2:15

      School ends - 3:37 

Lunchroom:  To start the year, students will be allowed to stay for lunch for Sept. 1st and 2nd as we send out and collect the lunchroom forms.  On Sept. 1st all children from Grade 1 to Grade 8 will receive a personalized lunchroom form and parent letter.  The turnaround time to return these forms is extremely short.  We ask that the lunchroom form be returned on Sept. 2nd at the latest.  All students must return a lunchroom form as the information collected is necessary to the organization of our lunchrooms going forward. Thank-you in advance for your attention to this important form. There are no microwaves in the classrooms/lunchrooms.  Please send warm food in a thermos.  Please send your child with utensils as they are not provided.

We wish everyone a great first day of school.  See you on Thursday.

École Massey School

Congratulations Mme. Archambault, our award winning kindergarten teacher!

Mme. Archambault has been chosen as a recipient of the Regina Board of Education 2016 Shared Values Recognition Program Award.

Our school community is united by four shared values statements, I belong; I want to know; I am responsible; and I respect. These values give direction to what is taught inside and outside the classroom. Students take responsibility for themselves and for others in the community by participating in a ride-range of activities. Shared Values transcend our differences and provide an equal opportunity to recognize and encourage the unique characteristics and contributions of students, parents/caregivers and staff.

Thank you for teaching these important values to our children Mme. Archambault!

 From all the staff, students, and parents at Ecole Massey, we extend huge congratulations for this achievement!
