Crossing Guard Update and Intermediate Workshops

Crossing Guard: Please note that we will have no crossing guard on duty this Monday and Tuesday at the intersection of Maple Sugar Ln and Daniel Reaman Cres. Please exercise extra caution on these days.

Intermediate Workshops:

We are excited to have the organization Canvas join us virtually next week to present information about interpersonal consent to our Intermediate students.  Canvas is a charitable organization that uses interactive, arts-based education to help build equitable, inclusive and safe school environments. 

Through interactive activities and discussion, this workshop examines the definition of consent, providing students with skills to communicate in relationships, identify sexual pressures, and recognize their own body ownership. This learning is tailored to specific issues that we have seen at Bakersfield and is connected to the workshops Canvas has previously delivered to our parent community and staff. These workshops are free for us thanks to generous funding from the Canadian Women’s Foundation.

Ms. Crasto and Ms. Ohana’s classes will be participating in the workshop on Monday, March 28th and Mr. Little and Mr. Gladman/Ms. Pivetta’s classes will receive the content on March 31st.  Please contact Brett McLean at brett.mclean@yrdsb.ca if you have any questions.
