Transportation Reminders

 

As the cold weather approaches the Regina Public School Board wants to  ensure that school bus routes are running on time,  and that students are safe.  Student delays at stops affect students waiting  further into the route. 

1.   Ensure their child is at the stop location and is ready for boarding five minutes prior to the stated departure time.

2.   Ensure, as necessary, that there is a responsible individual available to meet the vehicle after school.

3.   Have alternate arrangements in place for those times when the vehicle is delayed.

 

Thank you for your assistance!

 

 

Pearson Portal resources

 

Regina Public Schools would like to announce the purchase of e-text resources available through Pearson Saskatchewan Portal as a support for Grades 4-9 students. E-Text resources are easy-to-use and available anytime and anywhere internet access is available whether using a personal computer (MAC or PC) or other device providing the appropriate Pearson e-Text app has been downloaded (iPad and Android). E-Text resources available for Grades 4-9 students include:

 

-        Literacy in Action Grades 7-8 and Live Ink Grade 9

-       Mathématiques WNCP/Math Makes Sense Grade 4-9

-    Pearson Science Grades 4-9

- Saskatchewan Social Studies Grades 4 -7 and Pathways Grade 9 

In support of accessing Pearson Saskatchewan Portal resources, each student in Grades 4-9 will be provided with a username and password in early October and will receive instruction regarding where and how to login and access e-text resources available.

 

Once this occurs, and in support of learning at home, parents/guardians of students in Grades 4-9 are asked to record student username and password at home to enable home access.

‘Sing your song, your children are strong…’

 

Jack MacKenzie School was honoured to host Winston Wuttunee as a special guest on Friday, September 19.  Winston sang, told stories, made the staff and students laugh at his sense of humour, marvel at his musical ability and ponder at his wisdom.  Mr Wuttunee was born and raised in Saskatchewan and is from the Red Pheasant First Nation. He is a singer / songwriter, actor, speaker and presenter, and has been bestowed many honours and awards throughout his career.  Indeed, Winston inspired everyone he met.
