This is a very important message for parents wanting to put their child in French Immersion in September for either grade 1 or grade 6.  Please take the time to log onto Anglophone School District West website and register your child under the link French Second Language Programs.  This process is necessary for planning purposes.

Happy New Year

 

 

Welcome KRS families to a new year!  We are very excited for new adventures and opportunities to growth and learn together as a school community.

 

Our theme for January is gratitude.  Through morning announcements, visual displays, recognitions and monthly assemblies we are working with our students to recognize and appreciate the importance of gratitude.  You can help at home by sharing stories and acknowledging times of gratitude.

 

As part of our new year we will be planning a Winter Individual Interests (WII) for February.  This will be an opportunity for students from grades K-8 to choose an activity that may be of interest to them and work with students of all ages.  This will be a 4 week program that will take place the same day each week.  Interests may include art, music, writing, sports, crafts, Indigenous cultural experiences……the list is soon to come.

 

Our K-8 daily recess clubs will resume next week giving students the opportunity to select different activities.  We will also have some fun activities planned for our Winter Carnival week which is the week of February 25th.  As always, a lot going on and we love it!

 

Our middle level is accepting donations of broken or unwanted electronics for a middle level building club.

 

Middle level students will be participating in an ArtSmart project in January. Artist and teacher, Marc Landry, will be teaching students about the writing and art design of graphic novels, and how to tell stories through graphic art.  Students will have an opportunity to create their own graphic novel storyboard.  

 

Parents who wish to have their child registered in a French Immersion Program are asked to complete the electronic registration form (located on the ASD-W web site: www.asd-w.nbed.nb.ca) (available January 15, 2019). The registration site will remain open for all registrations beyond February 28, 2019.

 

Be sure to like our Keswick Ridge School Facebook page to follow updates and celebrations.  You can also check our website at    https://secure1.nbed.nb.ca/sites/ASD-W/KeswickRidge/Pages/default.aspx

Update to Nutrition Policy 711

​Dear Parents & Guardians,

Today the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development announced revisions to Policy 711: Healthier School Food Environment.

These changes provide flexibility and empower local school communities to make informed decisions about the health and well-being of their students.

As part of these new standards, chocolate milk and 100 per cent fruit juice will be permitted to be sold in public schools.  

There will also be some flexibility for schools providing breakfast programs to students who need a better start to their school day.

For fundraising and special events, schools will be empowered to organize activities and occasions that respond to the needs of the local school community.

In-school celebrations, holidays, and special occasions will be permitted, although timing of these events must be reasonable and undertaken in moderation.

The overall main goal of the policy will continue to be to promote and make available healthy foods and beverages at school whenever and wherever possible.

Director of Communications, Anglophone West School District

Giving is our theme for December
This month's theme is GIVING.  We want to show our students that there are many ways to give that don't involve money.  You can give someone love, attention, a listening ear and or simply give your time.  You can also help out with a chore such as shoveling, piling wood, making your bed, picking up toys or helping to carry groceries.
