CCRSB launching “We’re not afraid…” ahead of 2014 Stand Up. Speak Out. day of action

CCRSB News - June 18, 2014 - Planning at the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board (CCRSB) is underway for Stand Up. Speak Out. 2014, the board-wide day-of-action against bullying and in support of positive relationships. This year, CCRSB is asking students and staff to show them what “We’re not afraid…” means.

“The idea is for students and staff, through selfies, short videos, pictures, poems – whatever creative outlet they choose – to demonstrate what “We’re not afraid…” means to them”, said Scott Milner, Director of Educational Services for CCRSB. “Stand Up. Speak Out. is all about having a voice, saying “no” when you see something wrong, and reaching out to help others. This theme is a perfect fit with that idea, that we all have a role to play to create positive relationships.”

CCRSB News - June 16, 2014 - Mrs. King’s Grade Primary/1 class at Rawdon District School received caterpillars in May and has just released the little critters into the world as butterflies!

The students were very fascinated by how the caterpillars formed their chrysalis and emerged as butterflies.

The butterfly center was added into their daily literacy activities and each week students reported in their non-fiction journals on what they saw happening throughout each stage of the life cycle.

The students created detailed drawings that included labels along with written observations. They also wrote poems and fictional stories about butterflies and compared them to the worms that were in the class a few weeks before.
