Remembrance Day– November 11th 

Remembrance Day is coming up on Monday, November 11th and Prestige School wants to ensure that students are honouring this special day.

Poppies have been available to students since Thursday, November 12th. If they have not already done so, students can bring in a small donation ($1-2) and receive a poppy from their homeroom teacher.

Prestige School will be holding an assembly on Monday in order to commemorate those who fought and continue to fight for our freedom. Ms. Bedford and select students have prepared a performance for the assembly and select English students from Ms. Jennifer’s English classes will be sharing their poems written for the Royal Legion Remembrance Day literary contest.

Prestige School will be standing for a moment of silence at 11:00am during the assembly to remember those who have sacrificed their lives so we can have peace, freedom and safety.

 

Bully Awareness Week

Prestige School has designated November 11th– 15th as Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week to help promote a safe school and a positive learning environment.

During this week, Prestige School students will be learning more about bullying and its effect on student learning and well-being.

Prestige School will start off Bullying Awareness and Prevention week with a kick-off assembly on Tuesday, November 12th. On Thursday, November 14th, homeroom teachers will dedicate 7th period to a bullying prevention lesson and activities.

By organizing Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week activities, Prestige School is hoping to effect positive change in student well-being.
