Arborgate
Lyrics by Carol Martens
Music Katy Perry

There was a little school in La Broquerie
A French and English place, known for its hockey
Students bussed to it from Marchand and Sandilands,
Woodridge and Zhoda, even Germany
And it grew and grew, adding huts and staff
Squishing out the gym and library; it could not last.
Now in Twenty twelve, the dream school takes its place
We’ve got a brand new space
Let’s sing of –Arborgate, you’re really great!
You’re Amazing, Respectful, Brilliant, Original, with Responsible kids
And we know you’re Generous, Athletically you’re Awesome,
We have to say, say, say, we’ve got Teaching Excellence!
Arborgate, you’re really great, with the students that are first rate
We’re proud and loyal team, team, team,
For Arborgate let’s scream, scream, scream

Just imagine all that our future holds
With a science lab, a massive gym and library
Special offices, canteen and learning room,
Supersized Music room, an atrium that has a tree
Have you seen the halls, named for places
That we’ve all come from; they’re now made into spaces
One day we’ll look back with a special pride,
Memories of faces.

Let’s sing of
Arborgate, you’re really great!
You’re Amazing, Respectful, Brilliant, Original with Responsible kids
And we know you’re Generous, Athletically Awesome,
We also have to say, say, say we’ve got Teaching Excellence!

Arborgate, you’re really great, with students that are first rate
We’re a proud and loyal team, team, team,
For Arborgate let’s scream, scream, scream

Grow, Grow, Grow
Learn all you need to
Know, know, know
‘Cause it’s what we want to do, do, do
And it’s up to you, you, you

‘Cause Arborgate, you’re really great, with students that are first rate
We’re a proud and loyal team, team, team
For Arborgate let’s scream, scream, scream

Grow, Grow, Grow
Learn all you need to
Know, know, know (repeat)

      Literacy:
      EY – By June 2021, all students will demonstrate at least one grade level of growth in writing as
      shown through the writing task assessment, which will be reflected in our reading data.
      MY – By June 2021, all students will demonstrate a minimum of one grade level of growth in
      reading and writing with 80% achieving grade level in organization and self-evaluation on the
      writing task assessment.

      Numeracy:
      By the end of June 2021, all students will use critical thinking skills to solve rich/authentic problems
      by estimating and predicting possible responses and explaining thinking/reasoning in multiple ways
      (concrete, symbolically and pictorially), as measured by the MRLC and the provincial scale.

      Wellness/Resiliency:
      By June 2021, it will be evident through our Wellness and PBIS data, that resiliency in our students
      will improve.

School Office
Box 40, 71 Normandeau Bay
La Broquerie, MB R0A 0W0
Phone: 204-424-5607
Fax: 204-424-5207
Email: arb@srsd.ca
A Secretary is available for phone calls from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. If you need to contact the office and
are unable to call during office hours, you may leave a message, send an email, fax the school, or send a
note with your child.

Student Absenteeism/Late Arrival
If your child will be absent from school, please call the secretary at 204-424-5607, or email
arb@srsd.ca prior to 9:20 am. You may also send a note with a sibling (please ensure the sibling
brings the note to the office). If you do not inform us of an absence, we must call you to ensure that
your child is supposed to be absent. Your call will save us the time and worry that your child may be
stranded at home after having missed the bus, or some other reason.
If your child is a bus student, you must call the Transportation Dept. (see above), so that the bus will
not be waiting to pick up a child who is not going to school.

Your child will be considered late if he/she arrives after 8:45 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. If your child arrives
late to school, he/she must report to the office for a late slip, as the teachers have already taken
attendance. If your child does not report to the office, the attendance will not be changed, and we will
be calling home to verify an absence for a student who has arrived late. Students arriving during the
lunch hour are considered absent for the morning, and do not require a late slip.

                                                     6
Parents Who Pick Up Their Children
Please remember:
• Park on Normandeau Bay
• Please do not park or stop in the bus loading zone in the front of the school between 8:00 a.m. and
   9:00 a.m. and between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
• Parents must report to the office, and wait for their children in the Arborgate Atrium.
• The parking lot is reserved for staff and daycare drop off only.
• It is illegal to pass a bus that has stopped to load or unload students. This also applies to the buses
   parked in the loading/unloading zone at the end of the day.
• Sign out your child whenever you are picking them up. Only town students do not need to be signed
   out.
Note: If your children regularly travel on the bus, and you will be picking them up, please call the
school before 2:30 pm, so that we will be able to inform your children of the change.

                                 3:10           –       Dismissal

                                Arborgate School timetable is based on a six-day cycle
                                following the school cycle as announced on local radio
stations and television.

Classroom Selection
Arborgate School has single and/or multiple classes for each grade level. As the teachers
have the knowledge in how students function within the school environment, the school
reserves the right to determine all student classroom selections. At the end of each year,
teachers meet to discuss student progress and determine class placement for the upcoming
year. Placement decisions are made based on academic and emotional development.

School Phones
To avoid disruption of classroom instruction, students will be allowed to use the school
phones during non-class times and during emergency situations. We will be happy to
pass a message on to students but we ask that interruptions during class times be
restricted to emergency situations only. Whenever possible, parents are requested to convey personal
messages to their children prior to the children leaving for school in the morning.

The use of cell phones by students is prohibited at school and on the bus. Inappropriate use of cell
phones will result in the phone being confiscated, and may require parental pickup.

                                                    7
No Smoking Policy
             Arborgate School is a smoke free environment as mandated by our school board. This
             includes the school, playground, field, and parking lot.

Student Dress
Students’ appearance and dress is expected to be in accordance with modesty and self-respect. Students
are free to wear clothing of their choice, provided that it is neat and modest, and in line with the
school’s philosophy. By modesty, we mean that clothing must not be so brief or close fitting as to call
attention. Shorts and skirts must reach mid-thigh. Loose pants or low-cut tops that show off underwear
are not allowed. Tops should be long enough, and waistbands high enough to cover the midriff. Tops
must be at least 3-finger widths at the shoulder. Current fashions will be evaluated as to which ones
concur, or do not concur with the school’s philosophy. Additional general guidelines will be given as
the need arises.
All students must keep one pair of indoor running shoes at the school to change into upon arrival.
The school reserves the right to comment upon, and require changes in any manner of dress that is not
deemed appropriate. Students wearing T-shirts with inappropriate messages or pictures will be asked to
change, or turn their T-shirts inside out.
Caps, hats, and bandanas should not be worn in the school at any time.

Bicycles, Skateboards, Scooters and Rollerblades
All students are expected to walk their bicycles when on school property. Bicycles
must be locked and stored in the racks provided. The school does NOT assume
responsibility for lost or stolen bicycles.

Skateboards, scooters, and rollerblades should not be brought to school, or used on school
property.

Personal Property
Parents are requested to see that their children’s clothes, boots, gloves, scarves, running shoes, lunch
kits, etc. are marked with the child’s name. Clothing does get misplaced, and many children have
similar or identical clothing. If a child has lost or misplaced an article of clothing, there is a good
chance it will be in the Lost and Found box. Children should look in this box; parents are also
encouraged to come to the school and look for lost items. Every year, many excellent articles of
clothing are left behind. Found items will be put on tables for parents to look through during Student-
led conferences and at the Year-end Awards assembly. Any items not claimed will be donated to
charitable organizations.

MP3s/IPODs/video games and other electronic toys are not permitted in the school.
Inappropriate use will result in the item being confiscated. Confiscated items may require
parental pickup.

                                                    8
Recess
All students in grades K-8 are required to go outside for recess. We will not send children out during
severe weather (rainstorm or temperature of -27° C or colder), but please ensure that your child is
always dressed appropriately (including footwear) for the weather conditions.

Drills
Fire Drills are held on a monthly basis to ensure that the school can be evacuated in an
orderly, panic-free manner in case of emergency. The wearing of indoor shoes is
mandatory, since fire drills are unannounced and every person must leave the building
when the fire alarm sounds.

Lock Down Drills are held twice per year, and Tornado Drills are held once per year. This is to ensure
the safety and protection of our students and staff in case of an emergency in the building or on site.
Once per year we are also required to practice moving to our alternate place of safety (the arena).

Students Leaving School Grounds
Except for those who live in town and go home for lunch, students are not permitted to leave the
school grounds during the day.
Only when it is an absolute necessity should children bring notes from parents asking that we allow a
child to leave the school grounds.

Grades 7 & 8 students, who are also twelve years of age, are required to fill out a form signed from
parents to leave school property at lunch.

Lunch at School
                         Students who stay for lunch are expected to follow lunch rules in order to
                         create a pleasant and safe lunch atmosphere. Failure to comply with lunch
                         rules may result in suspension of the privilege of eating at school.
                         Microwaves are not available for student use. Please make sure to provide
                         cutlery for your child, as none is available at the school.

Medication/Student Illness
At times, students may require medication during school hours. Personnel in our school may not
administer any medication without the written consent of parents and the authorization of the child’s
physician. Forms are available through the office for those students requiring medication at school.

No medication is to be sent on the bus. It must be brought to the office in the original container.
You can ask the pharmacy to dispense medication in two containers, so as to have one at home, and one
at school.

                                                    9
We do not have a school nurse to assist children who are ill. Whenever a child becomes ill, we will
telephone home to request that someone pick him/her up. We therefore require an emergency contact
number in case no one is available at home.

Lice Policy
Please see instructions in appendices.

Attendance at School
Head lice infestations have generally been present for several weeks
before they are noticed. As children found to have head lice at school
or day care have likely attended for days or weeks before detection,
there is no benefit in sending them home early; they may go home at the
end of the day. Immediate exclusion and/or isolation are not necessary. Children may return to
school or day care after treatment with an effective product. Entire classrooms or groups will not be
checked.

There is a general consensus that “no-nit” policies (requiring a child to be free of nits before returning
to school or day care) are unnecessary for the following reasons:

   •   Many nits are more than 7 mm from the scalp. Such nits are usually not viable and very unlikely
       to hatch to become crawling lice or may in fact be empty shells;
   •   Nits are cemented to hair shafts and are very unlikely to be transferred successfully to other
       people;
   •   The burden of unnecessary absenteeism to the students, families and communities far outweighs
       the risks associated with head lice;
   •   Misdiagnosis of nits is very common during nit checks conducted by non-medical personnel.

Families with continuing or recurring infection with head lice will be assisted and supported by the
school and health professionals.

Returning to School
Exclusion for 24 hours after treatment is not required
Students will be checked when returning to school. This is NOT to exclude children but to check so
that we can assist parents in continuing the cleanup should nits still be evident. Recommendations
for treatment are available through the office.

Lice Checks

Letters will be sent home with classrooms that have confirmed cases of lice. This is to inform parents
to check their children to reduce the spread of lice. Entire classrooms or groups will not be checked.
We will not be sending home letters for buses.

                                                    10
Transportation
       Eligibility and Conduct
Please see attached Bus Ridership Policy and Bus Code of Conduct.

       Change of Bus for Students
Except for emergency situations, parents are requested to provide the Transportation Department a
minimum of 24 hours notice for a requested change to a scheduled pick up or drop off of a transported
student. Bus drivers are not authorized to change routes, or locations of drop-off or pick-up. If your
child will be going to the home of another student, the other student’s parent must also send a note to
the school to verify the change. Exceptions will be made for emergency babysitting situations for K-4
students only.

Change of transportation will be provided for babysitting purposes or school projects only – not for
sleepovers, birthday parties, etc.

If there will be a long-term change of bus, parents will need to fill out a new transportation request form
at the school office.

Note: Students who walk to school may not take a school bus to a friend’s house, as only bus
students are insured for transportation to and from school on the bus. If your child walks to
school and needs to go to a babysitter’s on the bus, you MUST fill out a transportation request.

Homework Policy
The amount of homework depends on a number of factors: how fast a student completes his work in
class, the teacher's expectations, and the needs of each individual student. All students should practice
at home such basic skills as reading and writing. It should be stressed that students can minimize their
amount of homework time by making good use of class time.

                                                    11
Music (Grades K-6), and Band (Grades 7-8)
The intention of music and band is to develop programs that enable students to acquire skills and
nurture an appreciation of the arts.

                             All students in grade 7 & 8 participate in Band Classes. These classes are
                             held at Arborgate School.

Textbooks
All textbooks handed out by the school are stamped with the school division stamp and their condition
is recorded at the beginning of the year. Textbooks are evaluated again at the end of the year to
determine if they have been abused. Students who lose or abuse their books will be held financially
responsible. The principal will determine the amount to be paid, and an invoice will be sent home.

Library
All students have regular library periods. Books must be returned or renewed at
the next library class. Although we do not assess fines for overdue books, we ask
that you ensure that your child does return books promptly. The student signing
out the book is responsible for returning it – students are not to lend their
Library Books to other students. Students who do not return their books on time
may have their library privileges suspended. Note: Students will be charged for
books that are lost or damaged.

Damage to School Property by Pupils
Pupils shall be held responsible for damage to school or school bus property resulting from wilfulness
or neglect on the part of the pupil.
It is the responsibility of the principal to investigate such damages and to decide where the claim shall
be laid. Claims to parents may be laid by the principal, Secretary/Treasurer of the School Board, or the
Transportation Supervisor.

Student Accident Insurance
The company endorsed by our School Division is Old Republic Insurance Group. They offer a plan in
which your child is covered twenty-four hours a day. Coverage is recommended for all students. If
interested, please fill out the form and mail directly to the company. You may also apply online
through the company’s (www.studentaccidentinsurance.ca). The school insurance policy provides
ambulance coverage.

                                                   12
Assemblies
Awards Assemblies will be held regularly throughout the school year. Parents will be notified of the
Assembly date/time in the newsletter and on the website, and are encouraged to attend. Parents should
receive a phone call or note prior to the Assembly if their child/children are receiving a classroom
recognition / award.

Our Year End assembly for all students will be held near the end of June. We will inform you of the
date and time via the newsletter and website.

Storm Days
                 The decision not to open the school because of poor weather conditions and the
                 possibility of blocked roads, is made early in the morning by the Transportation
                 Supervisor and the Superintendent. If they decide the schools will not open, they will
                 contact the following radio stations: C.B.C. (990), C.J.O.B. (680), C.K.R.C. (630),
                 C.K.Y. (580), C.H.S.M. (1250), and the affiliated FM stations.

This information will also be posted on the Arborgate website - www.srsd.ca/school/ARB, Seine River
School Division - website www.srsd.ca , Steinbach online - www.steinbachonline.com, and on the The
Weather Network Television station, and their website -
http://www.theweathernetwork.com/schools/cambpoi2151458.

Should parents be concerned that road conditions in their locality are deteriorating; they may come and
pick up their children before the end of the day. Please call the school to inform us of your decision.

Methods of Assessment

A variety of methods are utilized at different grade levels and at various curricular areas. Each teacher
has his/her evaluation plan and course outline which details specifically their method of assessment.
Similarities of assessment methods occur at the Early Years (K-4) and the Middle Years (5-8).

Early Years (K-4)                                      Middle Years (5-8)
- classroom observation (formal and informal)          - classroom observation (formal and informal)
- daily work samples                                   - daily work samples
- teacher developed oral tests                         - projects
- teacher developed practical tests (i.e. Hands on)    - teacher developed written tests
- portfolios                                           - teacher developed oral tests
-projects                                              - teacher developed practical tests (labs)
                                                       - portfolios
Recording
Teachers utilize:
      - samples of student work with anecdotal records;
      - document specific formal observation;
      - utilize their own record-keeping system based on course specific outcomes.

                     Procedures in Handling Inappropriate Behaviour

STEP 1.    Teacher/Supervising Adult discuss problem.

STEP 2.    PBIS form is filled out, and then there is a follow up by the adult.

STEP 3.    If it is a major or repeated infraction, the Principal/Vice-Principal is informed.

STEP 4.    The parents are informed by the teacher or student.

                         Major infractions are dealt with beginning at step 5

STEP 5.    If problem persists, a meeting is arranged between parents, teacher, principal,
           and student.

STEP 6.    Division is informed, and support services may be involved.

STEP 7.    Student is put on a contract – possible outside agency involvement.

Minor infractions:
       Violation of school wide rules (see chart on next page)
Major infractions:
       Major offences will be dealt with through the office. These include:
   •   Verbal abuse of a student, teacher or any other adult
   •   Physical abuse of a student, teacher or any other adult
   •   Threats to harm a student’s, teacher’s or any other adult’s person or property
   •   Possession, threat with, or use of a weapon
Arborgate School’s behaviour management plan is designed to create a climate of cooperation,
academic excellence, respect, and safety.

We believe that School wide and classroom expectations must be taught, and students need to be aware
of the rewards for appropriate behaviour, as well as the consequences for inappropriate behaviour.

This approach enables each student to feel secure in understanding what’s expected.

Our aim is for each student to reach the worthwhile goal of self-discipline.

                                                     15
RESPECT People, Prop erty and Yourself !
