KELVIN CLIPPERS NEWSLETTER 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.

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 ARCTIC SCIENCE DAY AT FORTWHYTE ALIVE 1961 McCreary Rd.

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.

The theme for 2015’s I Love to Read Month is “Literacy is a Human Right.” Check the Manitoba Reading Association’s site for resources and ideas. “I dreamt of a country where education would prevail.” Malala Yousafzai ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BLACK HISTORY MONTH Every year Canadians are invited to participate in February’s Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of black Canadians, past and present. We take this time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation we are today. During Black History Month Canadians can gain insight into the experiences of black Canadians and the vital role this community has played throughout our shared history.2 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FREEDOM TO READ WEEK February 22 - 28, 2015 Freedom to Read Week is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.3 Learn more about censorship in Canada at the Book and Periodical Council’s Freedom to Read Week website. “You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture.

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! See M me YIP meets every Thursday at 12:25 in Room 25. Simonsen, Ms. Hurley or Mme Thompson for further information. I.B.

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.

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.
