From the administration of Regina Public Schools:

On September 20, 2011, the Board of Education adopted a number of motions that relate to the Renewal of Regina Public Schools. No decision will be made on these motions until on or before January 15, 2012. We encourage all members of our school communities to review the motions. They are available at www.rbe.sk.ca. Before any decision is made, the Board hopes to hear from parents/guardians, students, partners and other public school ratepayers. Your feedback is very important to us. If you have any questions or comments, please communicate them with your school principal or e-mail review@rbe.sk.ca.  Over the next few months, we will continue to keep you informed about developments in your school division.

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Reading Challenge is On!

The Mayor knows that READING COUNTS! Once again, he is challenging Regina children to READ!, READ!, READ! in the Mayor's Mega Minute Reading Challenge. How many minutes will we be able to reach this year? There are great prizes available from the Regina Public Library and partners. At Braun, "Gold" treasure is available from Captain Wills for every ballot completed and each class has a chance to win a pizza lunch for the most minutes read. The best part is that the more reading we do, the better we will get, the more we will learn and the more fun we will have! Check out the website for details at http://mayorsreadingchallenge.ca/.

Terry Fox Walk

On Friday, the school will participate in a Terry Fox Walk for Cancer Research. Students are encouraged to bring a "Twoonie for Terry" which will be donated to the Terry Fox Foundation. The walk will take place in the afternoon (the weather is supposed to be wonderful!) and will involve a short circuit through the neighbourhood. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the school.

Head Lice

Every school year there are concerns regarding Head Lice.  Head lice are common in school-age children but they do not cause serious health problems and most children have no symptoms. However they do spread easily by sharing personal items, such as head gear, towels and combs, coats/jackets and sharing the same bed and/or through close head to head contact with an infested person.

Anyone can get head lice no matter how clean and careful they are.

Head lice and their eggs are tiny and seen only with careful checking of the hair and scalp. The nits may look like dandruff, but cannot be flicked or blown off. People with head lice may have an itchy scalp. Nits (eggs) can survive for over a week.

If you discover that your child has lice or nits, please notify the school.  Your child will not be identified.  A generic, informational letter will be sent home with classroom students advising parents/guardians how to check for lice and nits as well as treatment procedures.

 

Electronic Devices

A reminder that there is no student usage of electronic devices during school time.  The school is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.

 

Henry Braun SCC Fundraising News

QSP Magazine Sales has been extended to Monday, Sept. 19th.  Please have all orders returned by Sept 19th!  Thank you for your support!

 

School Safety Drills

During the school year we practice a variety of safety drills so everyone knows what to do in case of a fire, an intruder in the school or if we need to evacuate the school and/or school grounds. One safety drill we practice is called "Code White".  During this drill we practice what to do if an intruder should come into our school.  This drill requires that all students are in a classroom with a teacher or school staff member.  Staff will close and secure the classroom door.  Prior to ending the drill, school administration will check to see if each room has a secure door.

 

Students Arriving at School

Please ensure that your child is not arriving at school before 8:45am, as there is no supervision on the playground until that time. Thank you for helping us keep your children safe!
