Board Meeting - November 12

‪Bernie Custis was a man of great character. His legacy now lives on in this school. ‬He would be so proud of Besart Lajci, Temitayo Janet Babalola, and Aztecca Clarke who spoke passionately about their dreams and aspirations at tonight’s official opening of @bcss_hwdsb
@bcss_hwdsb is officially open with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. It’s great to see the positive result of two schools coming together to form one community.
How do we know if we are bullying? Do you hurt others on purpose? Do you stand up when you see bullying? Bullying has many forms. If you were the problem, apologize. Find outlets that make you feel good. Talk to a trusted adult when you have problems. www.hwdsb.on.ca/safeschools
McMaster Children's Hospital has a new winter service guide for its Autism Program and a Service Fair for families to meet program staff, tour the space, and learn more about programs and services. Details are at http://bit.ly/2Xv89Qt and http://bit.ly/2XwrYqn
Each Nov. 20, International Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to remember transgender people, gender non-conforming individuals and those perceived to be transgender, who have been murdered and experienced violence due to hate. #TransRightsAreHumanRights
‪It’s the most wonderful time of the year. So let’s draw about it! Students, send us your holiday card artwork submissions for the annual Director’s Holiday card. Contest is open until November 29. Learn more by visiting the HWDSB website.
On Day 2 of #BullyingAwarenessAndPreventionWeek, let’s consider what to do if we are bullied. Stay calm. Walk away. Tell a trusted adult. Report anonymously by HWDSB Helps. Tattling is to get someone in trouble, telling is to get them out of trouble. www.hwdsb.on.ca/safeschools
During Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, HWDSB is distributing an awareness package to all families to inform and help navigate bullying concerns. Watch for it in the days ahead! Stop bullying. Learn more at hwdsb.on.ca/safeschools
It's #BullyingAwarenessWeek and on Day 1, let's start at the beginning: Bullying is a form of harm caused by peers. Targeted, repeated, involves power, aggression, intimidation, shame. It is a way to control and hurt others. Stop bullying. Learn more at www.hwdsb.on.ca/safeschools
