From the Principal's Desk - April 2014

I am hopeful that spring- like weather will be here soon enough and that by the end of this month our snow hills at the back of the school will be a faded memory and a merely a puddle or two!  

The final character trait to be reviewed in our newsletter is responsibility. For me, the word responsibility, as it relates to students,  refers to the ability to respond (or be accountable) in a positive manner.  When children are able to respond in an appropriate way, it allows for success in whatever it is that they are doing.  In order to respond appropriately, students need many opportunities to see and/or practise the necessary skill.  As children grow, so too  should their ability to properly respond to chores and tasks.

How can you help your child to be responsible?
  • Give your child the opportunity to participate in choices/decisions.
  • Assign your child age-appropriate chores.
  • Be a good role model  by setting a good example.  Children learn with their eyes and ears .  
  • After watching a movie or a tv show, or after having read a good book, talk about how a character demonstrated good responsibility.
  • Practice, practice, and more practice.  Rather than direct and protect your child, allow them to try it out on their own with you as the guide.
Teaching your child responsibility helps build character and makes him/her a more independent, self-reliant person. As they grow, let their responsibilities grow, too.  Finally, don’t forget to give your child plenty of praise for a job well done.  

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.  We continue to strive to make this the best educational experience possible for all students.

 Yours in education,



 Pauline Kelly
