What is Bullying?


Bullying is a form of aggression used by a child to maintain power over another child. It can result in emotional problems including anxiety, low self-esteem, and/or depression.

Types of bullying:

  • Physical bullying: using physical force against another person which includes kicking, shoving, taking and damaging belongings.

  • Verbal bullying: using words to verbally attack someone which includes name calling, taunting, offensive comments, making threats.

  • Social/relational bullying: trying to hurt another person through excluding them, spreading rumours or ignoring them, and gossiping.

  • Cyberbullying: using electronic media to threaten, embarrass, intimidate, or exclude someone, or to damage their reputation.


Bullying is NOT a normal part of growing up. Tips for parents/caregivers if their child is being bullied:

  • Listen to your child

  • Involve your child in looking for solutions

  • Create support for you and your child (teachers, school support staff, family members)

  • Build up your child’s self-esteem (praise and value their achievements, get them involved in school and community activities they enjoy)

  • Teach your child how to respond to bullying behavior (walk away, ignore, talk it out and seek help)

  • Work with your school to educate others about bullying

  • Tell your child you love them


Pink Shirt Day will be celebrated on February 27th. Pink represents our support against bullying behavior. Together we can make a difference. Remember everyone deserves respect and no one deserves to be bullied.

Revisions to Policy 711 Healthier School Food Enviroment

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Today the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development announced revisions to Policy 711: Healthier School Food Environment.

These changes provide flexibility and empower local school communities to make informed decisions about the health and well-being of their students.

As part of these new standards, chocolate milk and 100 per cent fruit juice will be permitted to be sold in public schools.  

There will also be some flexibility for schools providing breakfast programs to students who need a better start to their school day.

For fundraising and special events, schools will be empowered to organize activities and occasions that respond to the needs of the local school community.

In-school celebrations, holidays, and special occasions will be permitted, although timing of these events must be reasonable and undertaken in moderation.

The overall main goal of the policy will continue to be to promote and make available healthy foods and beverages at school whenever and wherever possible.

December Newsletter

Hi Friends,

    Waylon the Coyote here! Can you believe it is already December?!? Mrs. Tucker and her elves have done an amazing job. Our school is such a welcoming place for family and friends in our community. December is a busy month here at KVMS.  KVMS is a happening place to be!

    It is getting colder. Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately to enjoy the winter wonderland that is upon us. Being active and getting fresh air are important components to being mentally fit. We love to bring learning outside so please make sure warm winter gear is packed every day.

    As we move into December there are many upcoming events that you need to know about.  The concert will take place on December 13th with two show times at 9 am and 12:45 pm. Please come join us! There will be raffle tickets on beautiful baskets up for purchase on the day of the concert – thank you for your contributions to the baskets. Please bring your change and help us raise money to improve our Amy Horton Memorial Track.   Staff and students are encouraged to come dressed in their pajamas on Thursday, December 20th.   Who knows, maybe I wear mine!




From my family to yours,

have a safe and happy holiday!

Spread the joy of the season with the

gift of giving from the heart.
