Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians​

Good afternoon, Creeker Families:

We hope your families had a wonderful break as did our staff. I have just checked the calendar and we have 6 weeks of hard work, learning and growing until Easter. This is a great period of time for students to work on their learning goals.

Creeker Interns – I would like to welcome Mlle McLean, M. Macoomb and Mlle MacKenzie  to Garden Creek. They will be interning in French Immersion for the next few weeks. Mr. Kornas is also returning to continue his  internship in Mr. Burnett’s class. Thank you to Mme. Arntsen, Mme. Cairns,  Mme. Doyle and Mr. Burnett for sharing their practice.

Momo  Challenge Note-   The following is an important  note in conjunction with the District in regard to Momo:

As you know, the Internet provides many learning opportunities for students, but unsupervised online access also comes with risks. Parents need to be informed of what their children see and hear on the Internet, who they meet and what information they may share with others. We are reaching out to you to discuss an important online safety matter currently trending on social media called the Momo Challenge. This is a disturbing online pop-up figure that may appear during snapchats, video clips or online games, urging children to take part in self-harm. Threatening statements can be made if directions from Momo are not followed by the user. Our school has encountered students talking about Momo and expressing worries about the challenge and what it may mean. In response, teachers have been discussing the topic with their students from an Internet safety point of view. We encourage you to educate yourself about the Momo challenge, talk with your children, and be on the lookout when your children are online.

By working together, we can continue to ensure the safety and security of our students. For further reassurance, the RCMP maintains an online portal of resources around child internet safety which can be found at the link: http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cycp-cpcj/is-si/isres-ressi-eng.htm
