After School Program for Students

I am pleased to inform you that DJCWA in partnership with LRHS, SSRSB Health Promoting Schools Partnership and the Region of Queens, will be offering an after school program aimed at promoting physical activity. Students from the Coop Education Program at LRHS will be on-site to deliver the program free of charge to all interested students. Participants would remain at DJCWA at dismissal time and would require prompt parental pick-up at the end of the activity.

Looking for Sponsorship For Purchasing Spark Exercise Bikes

Last year, each school received a Spark Exercise Bike from the South Shore Regional School Board. This was the result of numerous studies on the importance of exercise for helping students self-regulate, particularly students with excessive anger and anxiety. The use of spin or exercise bikes was the result of research by Dr. John Ratey who wrote the book, SPARK. This research has been confirmed many times over. Now we all know that healthy bodies help make healthy minds.

Report Card information for Parents and Guardians With Children in Grades Primary to 3

This is the first year for Nova Scotia’s Action Plan for Education. It is a five-year plan focused on maximizing student learning and success. A redesigned  curriculum for students in grades Primary to 3 is one of the biggest initiatives for this year. Changes were made to provide a stronger foundation in mathematics and literacy. It means your child’s teacher now has more time to teach these important skills and your child has more time to learn.
