Here are some question suggestions you might want to use to guide your conversation with your child’s teacher. You might also want to ask your child if there is anything else she or he would like you to discuss with his/her teacher.Questions You May Want to Ask Your Child’s Teacher
The student’s at Sacred Heart School have been participating in “A Bug and a Wish” program lead by Mme Vachon and Mme Baker. The goal of this interesting program is to be able to give “A Bug and a Wish” to someone who has done something to upset you emotionally or physically. For example:
Student A(Victim): Can I give you a bug and a wish?
Student B(Bug/Bully): Yes you can give me a bug and a wish.
Student A: You bug me when you call me names, I wish you would stop.
This promotes communication between peers by giving them an opportunity to tell the “bug” how they feel. The students also have the choice to fill out a “Bug and a Wish” that is available in every classroom. The cards are used so that the victims don’t feel like they can’t tell a teacher. The cards are confidential and put into a box. They are monitored by a few staff members and dealt with accordingly. This has proved to be a helpful tool in being aware of the “bugs” in the school. The students are taking their own steps in the right direction in order to STOP THE BULLYING!Sacred Heart School Students Picture

At Sacred Heart School, as part of aspects of citizenship (Social Studies), students are learning about the Canadian Charter of rights and freedoms. Students are expected to describe these rights and freedoms in addition to understanding the responsibilities that accompany these rights. Students are also expected to describe the process of the civic ceremonies (e.g. reaffirmation citizenship ceremony) and explain why we commemorate them. This week being ‘Canadian citizenship week’ (third week of October), the students will be reaffirming their Canadian citizenship. The Social Studies program is a part of French curriculum offered at Sacred Heart School

Sacred Heart School students from the Grade 3-4 class decided to “Pay it Forward” by doing an act of kindness for their community. The students collected toys to give to the children who go through appointments or surgeries to hold on to. They called it “Bearrific Friends”. They wanted to show that no matter how small the contribution it will have a big impact in the end. Someone is always looking out for us and “Paying it Forward” in their own way shows that we are all “Lights in this World”.Sacred Heart School Students in grade3-4 "Pay It forward" Picture
