Dear Terrace Road Families,
As part of our Wellness Goal for our School Development Plan this year, our school focus has been to help students to develop positive relationship skills with their peers and other adults within our school.
As part of this commitment, we have been working through the URStrong Program, a locally developed collective of lessons on making and maintaining healthy friendships, conflict resolution, and self-advocacy skills.
In addition, we have been learning the difference between Bullying and Mean-on-Purpose Behaviour. This aligns with the CBE Bullying and Awareness framework pictured below.
It is important all parents know that we are first and foremost committed to ensuring a welcoming, caring, safe, and respectful environment for all students at Terrace Road School. If your child is experiencing rude, mean/aggressive behaviour, or bullying at school it is important to bring this to the immediate attention of your child's teacher and/or school administration. We will work with you and your child toward a solution. Once we have a better understanding of which part of the continuum of behaviours your child is experiencing, we will be best equipped to support them in reaching a positive outcome.
As always, thank you for your ongoing support of this work at the school level. When parents and educators work together we can ensure that all students feel welcomed, safe, and supported at school.
Principal, Terrace Road School
