From School to Home - Keeping you Informed
January / February 2015
Message from the principal:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the
Dates for your Diary and
Upcoming Events
staff and students who contributed so much during the
month of December to make Kelvin such a great place
to be. There were any number of activities taking place
at Kelvin in December that were noteworthy but I
would like to take a moment to talk about one of
them.
On December 12 we hosted our Annual Christmas
Breakfast with over 200 students from an inner city
elementary school for a morning of breakfast and
activities.
This event takes hundreds of hours of
volunteer time of both staff and students before the
event. Students are working weeks in advance and the
atmosphere they create on that morning is truly
inspiring.
I’m not sure who had the bigger smiles that
morning, the young students or the Kelvin buddies
working with them.
The event is for the younger
children but I think we get every bit as much from it as
they do.
January and February are going to be busy months for
the
students.
The
end
of
January
is
exam
time. February brings the start of a new term and for
most students the start of new courses.
I want to wish everyone the best of luck in your exams
and the start of the new semester.
J. Brown, Principal

FRENCH IMMERSION
EVALUATION ORALE
In 2010, école secondaire Kelvin French Immersion teachers decided that our collective goal was
to promote oral literacy in our classrooms. We developed an evaluation tool to assess the
students’ French language proficiency. The intent of this evaluation was to create a
consciousness in our students and to provide them with a baseline to set goals for themselves
over the next couple of years.
This is the 4th year of our oral literacy initiative and the 4th year that your children will be part
of the process. On December 3, the majority of the grade 12 students had an interview session
with two immersion teachers which consisted of a 10 minute discussion based on 1 or 2 topics
of their choice followed by feedback from the teachers. There will be a second evaluation
session for grade 12 students who are taking French in second semester on April 29.
The grade 10 evaluation is similar in format to the grade 12 assessment. Grade 10 students were
evaluated on November 5 and 6.
The grade 11 students will participate in a round table discussion for their evaluation which will
take place on May 21. For all three levels, parents will receive results in the mail.
We are excited to see the students’ growth over the past few years at Kelvin.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Lise Simonsen or Leanne Chase
for clarification.

SCIENCE
St. Boniface Research Lab
Over 5 days at the St-Boniface Research Centre, students from the Winnipeg School
Division, including Holly W. from Kelvin, focused on the many ways in which St.
Boniface Research Centre scientists approach complicated diseases in their major
medical research divisions: the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, Division of
Neurodegenerative Disorders, Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and
Medicine and Clinical Research. They explored the connections between Alzheimer’s
disease, diabetes and heart disease using a variety of molecular and cellular biology
techniques to demonstrate current understanding of how these diseases work. They
took a particular focus on the use of stem cells in these areas of medical research and
participants ran a small type of stem-cell experiment over the course of the sessions to
explore how cells change in disease. If you are currently a grade 10 student who plans
to take grade 11 biology next year, and are interested in participating in next year’s
research, please see M. Davidson in room 6 for more information.

PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL
If you haven't made it out to a Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meeting - there's no time
like the present! And here's why: for the most part we're consumers of education. As
parents we remember walking through the halls of Kelvin High School and as we watch
our kids take similar steps, with the odd detour to reminisce, we still have but a single
perspective - as the consumer of education.
Sit in on a Parent Advisory Council meeting and you'll start seeing a more complete
perspective - that of the consumer and that from the delivery side. Every time I attend a
PAC meeting I feel privileged - that our educators, administrators and Student
representatives take the time out of their busy lives to share with us, what happens on
the delivery side of education. That these professionals reach out for our input and our
advice as 'we' navigate the changing education landscape - in the essence of the inclusive
culture of Kelvin.
It really is interesting to gain a better understanding and to have a broader perspective
of our education system - as parents with equally busy schedules, there is no better way
that I know to experience, to understand, to appreciate and to effect the holistic
approach Winnipeg School Division One takes in delivering an outstanding product.
The care, the pride and the continual striving for excellence permeates throughout.
Youth in Philanthropy (YIP)
Kelvin’s Youth in Philanthropy committee is a group of passionate students dedicated to providing
support to at risk women and youth in our community.
Kelvin’s YIP committee has had a very busy year so far! We’ve established our mission
statement (see above) and have narrowed down a list of charities that we plan on
visiting in March.
At the beginning of October, we held a Thanksgiving dinner fundraiser for patrons at
Siloam Mission. With the help of Kelvin students and staff, we were able to raise enough
money to help purchase over 90 meals!
In addition, in late October a group of YiPpers volunteered at Siloam Mission and
served lunch and sorted clothes.
In December, some of our members volunteered with the Christmas Cheer Board to
help collect donations at Safeway. YIP’s enthusiasm encouraged people to make
donations while shopping.
The YiP committee held Tea Time Tuesdays for the month of December. For only $1
Kelvin students could purchase a cup of tea and a sweet treat. All proceeds went to the
Kelvin Food Bank.
YIP would like to thank all the Kelvin staff and students who have been so generous and
have helped make these initiatives such a huge success!

KELVIN ROCKY MOUNTAIN TRIP: JUNE 23 – 30, 2015
NEXT MEETING IS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21 IN ROOM 17 AT LUNCH
There are still a few spaces open on Kelvin's Rocky Mountain Trip. This year’s Rocky Mountain Trip will
leave on June 23rd and return on June 30th. The trip was established in 1982 by staff members who
wanted to share their experiences of hiking in the mountains. Six teachers will be on the trip with a
maximum number of 24 students. All staff on the trip have experience with hiking and outdoor trips. The
trip is open to students in Grade 10 & 11.
The approximate cost of the trip this year will be between $900 and $950 depending on the number of
students. The final trip cost should be finalized by March. This cost covers tour bus transportation, group
supplies, lodging, and meals once we are in Canmore. Students will need to pay for their own meals on
the way to and from Canmore. We will stay at the Alpine Club of Canada, which is located in Canmore,
Alberta. The group will cook its own meals at the facility in Canmore, and we will hike in the Canmore /
Kananaskis area in Alberta.
We will hold trip planning meetings with trip members approximately every 4 weeks. Meetings will
include information about outdoor education, clothing and equipment selection, fitness training, and our
expectations of the group regarding behavior, etc.
Please check out our Rocky website. Our site can be accessed through Kelvin’s home page. Go to
Athletics and Extracurricular – School Trips – Rocky Mountain Trip.
If you have questions concerning this trip, please contact me at the school. I can be reached by email at

ÉCOLE RIVER HEIGHTS SCHOOL
OPEN HOUSE
Grade 6 Orientation and Information Evening
École River Heights School staff invites you to an orientation and information evening
on Tuesday, February 10th, 2015
from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. in the gym.
This evening is designed for parents of students who are interested in attending
École River Heights School during the 2015-2016 school year!
Teachers from English, French Immersion and
Late Entry French Immersion will discuss
Programming options and activities,
and answer any questions you may have.
CLIPPER TIPS
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) states that when a
student reaches the age of 18 they are an adult and schools are unable to share
information with parents without the written consent of the student. We believe that in
the majority of situations parents would like to continue to receive information about
their children from the school. Forms to give consent are available in the guidance
office and need to be filled out after the student has reached the age of majority.
Due to increased concerns with students having
adverse reactions to scented products, Kelvin
High School is taking steps to becoming a scent
free school. We are asking for the support of
students, staff and parents. We are asking all
those attending Kelvin to avoid wearing
scented products such as perfume, men's
cologne, scented hairspray or lotions, strong
smelling soaps, etc. Your support would be
greatly appreciated.
Registration 2015 - 2016
Students will be filling out their 2015-2016
applications in early February during school.
Please remember to discuss course selections
with your son/daughter before signing and
returning to Kelvin.
Deadline for return of applications is February
28.
The practice of dropping off and
picking up students in the parking lot
before and after school is quite
disruptive to the staff as well as “an
accident waiting to happen.”
Please be reminded that the school’s
parking lot is specifically assigned to,
and paid for by, school staff only and
therefore, we are requesting that you
refrain from using it as a drive-thru by
making arrangements to drop off or
meet your son/daughter on one of
the surrounding streets.
Smoke Free Environment
The Winnipeg School Division Board of Trustees
has adopted the following motion:
“School Division buildings, Division vehicles and
School Division property, shall be smoke free.
Smoking by students, employees of the Division,
and any persons shall be prohibited in Division
buildings, Division-owned vehicles and on school
property”
Students are being cautioned not to bring valuables to school (ie: iPod, MP3 players),
unless it is a course requirement (such as scientific calculator). Kelvin will not assume
responsibility for any “lost” items.
Kelvin High School Code of Conduct
Kelvin High School has adopted a “Clipper Code of Conduct for Student Athletes”.
Kelvin believes that participating in athletics is a privilege. Student athletes are
ambassadors of our school. The image presented by our student athletes will be of a
positive nature, enhancing the reputation of Kelvin inside and outside the community.
To achieve this the “Code of Conduct” will be a guide for our student athletes. The
code will reflect personal behavior, attitude, courtesy, academics, sportsmanship and
general commitment. Student athletes who do not adhere to these considerations will
be referred to an Athletic Review Committee and appropriate action will be taken to
rectify the situation.
