We will be starting our Battle of the Books for the junior teams the second week of October. Students will receive their first book to read and be responsible to read 2 books over the next 7 weeks. When they are finished reading their first book they should come to the library at the first recess to exchange their book for their second one. All teammates are responsible to read 2 books for their team, but can continue to read all eight books if they choose.

IMMUNIZATION NOTICE FOR PARENTS
Public Health Nurses will be in your school approximately four times throughout the school year providing routine immunization to students in grades 1, 6, and 8. In certain instances such as follow-up when there is case of vaccine preventable disease in the school or classroom, children in other grades may also receive a vaccine at school. Through the schools, the Public Health Nurse will send out a consent form before the scheduled day of immunization. You can help by completing the form and returning it promptly. Questions about immunizations can be directed to the school nurse whose contact information will be included in the consent package.
To do their work, public health staff review student immunization records and enter vaccines given in school into the electronic provincial immunization registry called Panorama. Panorama is a secure electronic health record system designed to store and record immunization related information. Confidential immunization information is only available to authorized health care workers such as members of the public health team, nurse practitioners and physicians across the province using secure networks.

School is OUT FOR SUMMER!
"The research is clear that children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect."
How can parents encourage reading over the summer?

* Online resources: Tumblebooks or Overdrive (free on the Regina Public Library website) , anyone with a RAZ KIDS account
* Garage sale books
* Have a reading challenge with friends or neighbours
* Pack a book in your backpack, sportsbag or car
* Read different types of text (magazines, newspapers, e-books, novels, recipes, informational books etc.)
Remember to READ! READ! READ!
