Welcome to École Cliff Drive Elementary School

 

As part of our WE365 Student Leadership, this group is asking for your help in our upcoming TOY DRIVE - for Deltassist. We will be inviting families to send un-wrapped toys, or pjs to school during December 1 - 5th.  If you are able to support this, we very much thank you!

Each year, the teachers reflect on the school goals, and make implementation changes, based on feedback and data from student performance.  We have been working on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) for the past 4 years, and have come up with a way to showcase this great work.  We introduced CD TV on Monday - at our school assembly.  In this assemly, we had hosts introduce the segment, we watched as students learned about the brain anatomy - in a clip called BRAINY ACTS - and primary students explained to us all how the Prefrontal Cortex, Hippocampus and Amydyla effect our behaviour.

There were students from 6 classrooms who had the opportunity to help in the acting, or post production of this Pilot Episode. We are not able to share this OUTSIDE of the school, as many of the parents have not yet gone in to PARENT CONNECT to give permission to have photos or videos of their child shared.  This is a reminder that there are multiple opportunties within the school year when learnings are captured in photos or video, and your children are always eager to participate. If the opportunity comes to share outside of our building, we make every effort to ensure that parents are contacted, and that they give specific permission for that sharing. 

At the next school wide assembly, we will be viewing CD TV Episode 2, when there will be more fabulous learning showcased!  These assemblies take place every 2nd Monday, at 2:20.  Stay tuned for the theme of the December 1st assembly. 

Cool wet weather will be with us for the rest of the fall/winter.  Please remember to send your child with clothing appropriate to spend recess and lunch OUTSIDE.  This includes waterproof jackets and footwear.

Grade 7 students will be participating in a tournament this upcoming week at SDSS.  More information is available from their coaches, Mr. Connaughton and Mrs. Cole.

The October/November newsletter is now available.  Click on the link to the right.

Please welcome Mrs. Bartlett, our new Office Administrative Assistant.  Her contact is vbartlett@deltasd.bc.ca, or continue to use contact@deltasd.bc.ca, which directs emails to Mrs. Keller.

 

COLD AND FLU SEASON/ENTEROVIRUS

School has now started and Fraser Health raises concern for spreading of cold and flu germs, as well as Entrovirus.  Strong Recommendations are that hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and personal hygiene are the best ways to prevent spreading germs.  Symptoms of Enterovirus include: shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or wheezing, and/or extremely high fever.  Advice is to take your child to see a doctor if they are exhibiting these respiratory symptoms. 

STAFF information is on the ABOUT tab of the website, with links directly to teacher email.

Grade 7 Late French Immersion parents - please put January 24th - 31 on your calendar for the students' trip to Quebec.

We are very pleased to see that many families are making the walk to and from school, and are including the family pet in their walk.  We wish to remind everyone that there are several children, particularly the little ones, who are seriously frightened by your pets.  Please ensure that they are not brought into the undercover areas, and if they leave their doggy doo behind, please pick it up! This is also a reminder that there are no OFF LEASH areas for dogs on our school grounds.
