Evergreen Theatre Presentation - The Three Little Pigs and B.B. Wolfe
10/18/2018
Since the dawn of time, audiences have agreed that the Three Little Pigs were totally right to refuse entrance to the wolf in order to keep the hairs on their chinny chin chins intact. But in this timely twist on the classic tale, the huffing and puffing threatening houses isn’t coming from a wolf. And the wolf is neither big nor bad, but rather brainy and bashful. BB Wolfe is a climate scientist, tasked with getting three stuck in their ways little pigs to embrace better building practices for a changing climate. Will they let her in? A slapstick romp for young audiences by award-winning Alberta playwright, Jana O’Connor. Ross Glen School will be hosting an Evergreen Theatre Presentation entitled, "The Three Little Pigs and the B.B. Wolfe". This wonderful educational experience will take place on Monday, April 1 at 1:00 pm.

Head Lice - Reminder for Parents
01/18/2018
Although head lice may not be the most exciting topic to chat about, they certainly are a nuisance, and a number of parents have asked for more information about head lice. As per Alberta Health Services direction, we do NOT send out notices about occurrences of head lice in the school, but we do encourage parents to check their children for lice on a somewhat regular basis throughout the year. We do not send the notes home any longer saying that head lice are in a class or the school. At school we do try to take precautions to reduce the likelihood of transmission of head lice, but unfortunately cannot ensure that it does not happen. For more information about head lice, please click on the link below: https://myhealth.alberta.ca/health/pages/conditions.aspx?hwid=hw51114

An Energized Brain in Less Than 5 Minutes Brain breaks are quick mental time-outs that help us refocus. They are easy 5-minute activities that help us get energized, boost blood flow and increase oxygen to the brain. It is recommended that children take regular brain breaks at school and at home to improve their educational success. Brain breaks can help children: Regain attention after sitting in one place for a long time Reduce stress Increase motivation to learn Improve memory Regain a positive state of mind Below are some activities you can do with your child: Sing or dance to your child’s favourite song Play physically active games like “Minute to Win It” to pack an active break into a small timeframe Play games such as connect the dots or maze puzzles Show a short funny video Perform breathing and stretching exercises Throw a ball back and forth Make a quick healthy snack Brain breaks are smart and simple. Be a role model by incorporating brain breaks into your personal daily activities as well. Get Walking The new school year is here! This brings opportunity for you and your child to walk to school together. There are so many benefits to walking, like increased physical activity, increased socialization with neighbours, spending quality time with your child and becoming familiarized with your community. You can still give your child the walking experience if you live far away from their school by parking five to ten minutes away from the school and walking the rest of the way. Another important benefit of walking with your child is that it allows them to develop traffic safety awareness and practice safe pedestrian behaviours. Most children will need supervision to walk to school until they are at least 9 years old. Did you know that twenty-six judgement skills are required to cross a street safely? Many of these skills have not fully developed in a young child. For example, they might think that a car can stop instantly or if they can see a car, the driver can see them. They are also often distracted and many underestimate dangerous situations. Here are some important pedestrian safety messages that you can model for your child: Cross at marked intersections or crosswalks Look left, look right and look left again before stepping out onto the street Wait until the road is clear Always walk on the sidewalk Alberta encourages active and safe routes to school.
