National Volunteer Week - April 15-21st

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers. Volunteering is often seen as a selfless act; a person gives their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return. And while volunteering is a form of service, many volunteers will tell you that “you get more than you give”. Centreville Community School would like to thank all of its volunteers for their efforts towards making COUGARS in our community.

Pink Shirt Day at CCS: Wednesday, February 28th is National Pink Shirt Day

Pink Day started in 2007, when a grade nine student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia was bullied by classmates for wearinga pink shirt to school. Taking notice, two students named Travis Price and David Shepherd rallied their peers to send a message to the bullies. The next day, the halls were filled with students in pink t-shirts.  Now the movement is worldwide, educating and inspiring others to stand together and take action against violence and bullying. 

Below are the designs created by students at CCS for Pink Shirts to be worn on Feb 28.  Choose the Design and Select the Size T- Shirt that your child would like.  Shirts are $15.00 and must be paid with  the order.  Order forms are to be returned to homeroom teachers by Friday, 16.

PSST World Goes Live- Launch Date: February 5th

ASD-W is proud to announce its new partnership with PSSTWorld, launching a cutting-edge school safety program into district schools. The PSSTWorld program is based on a proven 5-year pilot project designed by international safety expert, Theresa Campbell, in Surrey, BC. The program encourages student participation as a core factor in the improvement of school safety and culture. To become familiar with the PSSTWorld program, please visit:

http://psstworld.com/about-us.

 

At the site, students have a popularized venue to report safety concerns—whether seen,

heard or experienced—directly & anonymously to school district safety staff. Tips and reports regarding bullying, cyberbullying, abuse, sex/drug/weapons/gang crime, suicidal thoughts,

vandalism and even potential for school attack are sent directly to district safety officials. The result is an improved potential for early conflict prevention, intervention and efficient resolution. Bystander and victimized students are empowered to act. Student offenders are deterred. Students, staff, administration and caregivers now have a safe (anonymous, if necessary), organized and popularized mode of action for reporting dangerous school incidents and concerns.

 

Speak to your children about the importance of respecting themselves and others. Make sure to explain the key difference between “telling” and “tattling” and the purpose of the tool is to get themselves or their friends OUT of trouble and not IN to trouble. Encourage your kids to talk to you about problems at school and be sure that they know they can now easily report safety concerns.

 

Together, we can minimize all forms of bullying, abuse and violence in our schools.
