Safety Matters

Announcements K-5

Staying Safe

  • Part of growing up is learning to keep yourself safe and to make healthy choices.  Your lungs need good, clean air to stay healthy.  Try not to breathe in smoke!


  • Being safe means being aware of things that are dangerous.  Medicines that are not meant for you can be dangerous for you.  If you find any of these, tell an adult so they can be put away.  It is never safe to eat or drink something if you are not sure what it is.


  • You may know older kids who smoke who might try to get you to try smoking. Tell them, “No, thank you” and walk away. Hang out with friends who care about you.


  • Any kind of smoking is bad for your health.  Your body is smart. When someone tries smoking for the first time they can cough a lot and sometimes feel pain in their lungs. This is your lungs way of letting you know that these chemicals are bad for your health.  Remember smoke free is the way to be!


  • Did you know that people who choose NOT to smoke can do more activities because their lungs are chemical-free, and it is easier for them to breathe?  Stay healthy and say “NO” to smoke.


  • Did you know that smoke affects everyone who is around it?  Ask anyone who is smoking to go outside and be away from others.


  • Our lungs help us breathe. Breathing well is important for playing with our friends and running.  Did you know that smoke makes it hard for us to breathe?  Say NO to smoke!


  • It is important to be good to your body.  Saying “NO” to things that are dangerous is good for you. Remember to always eat healthy foods and exercise.

February – Pink Shirt Day: February 26th, 2020


Did you know that when you are kind, more people want to be around you?  One of the best ways to make a new friend and keep your friends is by being kind. How will you show kindness to others today?


  • Do you have a friend that is always there for you? Has one of your family members done something special for you? Say thank you to the people who mean the most to you. Remember saying “thank you” makes people feel good! 


  • How do you think it would feel to play by yourself everyday at recess? How would you feel if you were the only one not invited to eat lunch together? A friend is helpful, cares about you, includes others to play with them, tells the truth, and takes turns. I know we can all be good friends today.


  • How would you feel if someone stood up for you? Or spoke up for you when you were being picked on? Bullying is not cool. Stand up for yourself and your friends by telling the bully to “Stop”. Remember to use your WITS. Together we can make difference.


  • Remember to always be kind and make others feel welcome. This helps make our school feel safe and friendly. Remember that together we can all do something to stop bullying.


  • Choose friends who make you feel good about yourself. If your friend says mean things to you or make you feel bad, they are not being a good friend. Tell your friend how you want to be treated. If your friend doesn’t want to listen try to find new friends through clubs and activities like sports, drama, music and art. Joining a group is a great way to meet new friends.


  • One of the BEST ways to solve a conflict is to walk away calmly and go somewhere safe like a classroom with a teacher in it.  Walking away takes you out of the conflict. Remember to use your WITS.


  • Do you know that ignoring a bully and keeping calm will often stop the bullying? Hang out with friends that are kind, helpful and supportive. Let’s all try to be a good friend today.

 Learning Buddies

Every Friday we meet up with our Kindergarten learning buddies from

Mrs. Bird O’Brien’s class.  We enjoy reading and working on math together!



We spent almost 2 hours working on this meaningful art project.  Our work will be on display in the main  hallway    leading to the cafeteria for the month of November.  When you are in our school, please stop by to take a look.

Grade 2B have enjoyed many visitors this term! In September, we celebrated Grandparents Day by having some grandparents in as mystery readers. Thank you to Graylin's grandma and Sophia's grandma and grandpa for coming to share a book with us. (Picture 3 Graylin's grandma, "Bubs")

 In honor of Orange Shirt Day, Elder Charlie Sewell from Oromocto spent the morning sharing many items about his culture. (Right)                    


Grade 2 and Grade 5 have partnered up as learning buddies this year. Students spend Wednesdays from 1:00 - 1:30, reading, practicing reading/spelling, playing math games, or learning French vocabulary. This is a great way for our grade 5's to reinforce their vocabulary and a great opportunity for our grade 2's to learn!  





Grade 4 Scott visited grade 2 to teach them about

internet safety.   




Grade 4 Scott visited grade 2 to teach them about internet safety. In pairs, the grade 4's talked to their partners about how to use the internet safely and what to do if a stranger tries to talk to you on the internet. Great job grade 4!  (Right)

Primary students are corresponding back and forth with the help of Mrs. Power, our Mailman/Guidance Councillor. It was great getting to meet our pen pals face to face for lunch at KRS and then apple picking at Johnny Appleseed. More meetings are planned over the school year.


It was Take Your Kid to Work Day on Wednesday.  Mrs. FosterStewart brought her son, Mitchell, a grade nine student at LHHS.  Mitchell had the opportunity to work with Harmony, one of our grade 2B students.
