Fun Fridays - Hallowe'en

Hallowe'en brought some minion to our school.


Parkland Middle School has a vision statement that states that we strive to be a supportive, responsible, involved community that learns and works together in a safe, caring environment that enables us to realize our full potential.  Unfortunately, like all schools across North America, the safe environment that we work so hard to establish and maintain is jeopardized by bullying.  The entire school community which includes the staff and students, parents, and government, plays a vital role in reducing instances of bullying. 
ERASE bullying is a government initiative that includes 10 Key elements which includes multiyear multilevel training, an anonymous reporting tool for students, stronger codes of conduct, and online resources.  I encourage parents to go to www.erasebullying.ca and explore the wealth of information that is available there.  The staff have all done so and will be touring the students through the site in their TAG classes.  You will discover the four main types of bullying, how to talk to schools when your child is a target, what you need to know about cyber bullying, and youth suicide, and how to decode this:

 OMG LOL I was JJA with you, GAL! WAM, I G2G – PAW! BB L8R!

Parkland’s school code of conduct comes in two forms.  The first is an expectation of what safe, respectful, and responsible behaviour looks like in different areas of the school and can be found on page 9 of the student agenda.  The second form is the “nuts and bolts” of expected behaviour, what unacceptable conduct looks like and what consequences students may face, and information pertaining to Sd5 and Ministry policies and the appeal procedure.  This document can be found at http://www.sd5.bc.ca/pdfs/3.7CodeofConduct.pdf and also posted on the bulletin boards in both administrators’ offices.
If you believe that your child is involved in bullying, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office. 

Mr. Holt and Mrs. Wasylowich
