RAISING MEDIA-SMART KIDS IN A DIGITAL WORLD: A PARENT ENGAGEMENT NIGHT
The average 8 to 18-year-old spends 7 ½ hours a day online. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Ask FM, Pinterest, YouTube, Blogger: it’s a new language and landscape for communication, learning, and especially parenting. Today’s socially networked society presents both exciting and challenging realities for parents and educators. Are you plugged in? Do you know how your child is spending their time online? How can we raise media-smart, caring kids today? Join our parent engagement night on Monday, November 25 to learn about how you can help your child become a safe, smart and responsible digital citizen. We’ll start at 7pm in the Jack MacKenzie library! All are welcome! Hosted by Shannon Sanchuck (Grade 2 Teacher) and Harmony McMillan (Grade 6 Teacher). RSVP is not required but appreciated, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The musical committee is looking for video footage of the recent production Seussical performed June 5 and 6th, 2013 at Jack MacKenzie School If you have any video clips you would be willing to share - please contact Mrs. Hinz via email - email@example.com
We are in the process of putting together a keepsake DVD of the performance for our students who participated. Thanks for your help with this.
An information session will be held at Albert Scott Community Centre on Sunday, March 17 AND at Division office on Wednesday, March 20.
This session will provide information about how Regina Public Schools is using self-declaration data to better support Aboriginal learners.

Skate 4 Smiles is an event and fundraiser honoring the memory of Dawson Ellert.
Dawson lived in Windsor Park and attended St. Gabriel but had friends throughout the Windsor Park community. He died in February, 2010 after a surgery to remove the brain tumor - just days after the diagnosis. His family and friends are working hard to raise funds for the Children's Hospital Foundation. To date, they have raised over $100 000. Please see http://skate4smiles.webs.com/ for details and consider taking part in this wonderful opportunity to honor Dawson and help build a hospital for all our children.

We cannot compromise children's safety. The safety patrol is out everyday. However they only monitor the crosswalk. Supervisors have had to talk to a number of parents/guardians/ older siblings who have come to pick up children about a number of safety issues. We have had a number of individuals:
- park in areas designated as no stopping areas as well as pull u-turns along the street in front of the school
- cars pulling up on the sidewalks while doing a u-turn when students are walking near-by
- jay-walk near the school buses
As a result we ask that you:
Please do not park in the "No Parking Zone"
this includes the Staff Parking Lot (parking privileges are granted for special circumstances, please contact the office to set these up) or the "No Stopping Zones"
Please do not make U-turns in the cross-walks or in front of the school grounds
Please do not block the cross walks or driveways of neighbourhood houses
while waiting for your child to come out.
Use the cross-walks where the safety patrol is regulating traffic
Thank you to the families who give high priority to the safety of all our children. One injury is too many. Please take a little time to insure the students of our community are safe. It may mean that a student has to walk a little further to the car or you have to drive an extra couple of blocks to get home but IT IS WORTH IT if a child never gets hurt!
The Regina Police Service has been at our school issuing tickets in violation of the traffic signs, which are posted in front of the school. They will continue to be monitoring our school area. Thanks for your support and cooperation!
Please refrain from sending any food items with peanuts or nut products. We have several students and staff with severe nut allergies which can be life threatening. We need to ensure the safety of all. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
