Me to We and Pink Day
Our school brought 20 students to We Day at the Canadian Tire Centre to experience the vision and energy to change the world. The students have come back pumped with ideas and suggestions that we are looking forward to experiencing.
Our first leadership activity was to lead "Pink Day", a bullying awareness activity where every student and staff pressed their pink hand print on a school poster and pledged these 4 items:
1. Include others.
2. Help students who are bullied by speaking out and getting help.
3. Stand up and speak out about bullying.
4. Not bully others
The We group have another outstanding leadership cause that they will share with the School Council and our community next month.
Students saw a performance of Jack and the Giant this morning:
Litterless Lunches on Fridays
Fridays will now be litterless lunch days at Roch Carrier Elementary School. We are encouraging all families to send lunches with reusable containers and NO garbage on these days. Please click HERE for further information.
Morning drop off:
Please do NOT use the bus lane to drop off your child in the morning from 8:15 - 8:30. The School buses require the full lane access for safety. We will be using pylons in the morning to prevent any cars from parking in the bus lane.
Please DO use the "Kiss and Ride" area for drop offs.

Student Lunch Monitors
Some parents have been curious about the role of student lunch monitors at Roch Carrier.
Many of our Grade 6 students act as classroom monitors during our nutrition breaks. These monitors are a key part of our school team working to ensure that the nutrition break is a safe, enjoyable experience for our younger students, and that children get outside for recess in an efficient manner. Our monitors ensure that students are in their seats, eating their lunches, chatting quietly, and behaving safely. They often help students opening lunch containers, ensure they have a chance to visit the washroom if needed, and help with tricky outdoor clothing in the winter. During inclement weather, the monitors help supervise in the classroom.
There is always a teacher supervising the area who is ultimately responsible for student safely and behaviour, and who is called immediately if there are any issues. Thanks to our lunch monitors, our nutrition breaks run very smoothly!
We are now accepting Kindergarten Registrations for the 2015-2016 school year.
