Parent Resource Library

St. Anne School Council and St. Anne School have established a Parent Resource Library. This collection of books is available through our school library and a list of available books is posted here for reference. The collection includes books about health, fitness, discipline, parenting issues and nutrition. Rather than dropping in to view the books and sign them out in person, a procedure has been developed that will cut down on traffic in the library.

To borrow from the Parent Resource Library

Parents are asked to send a note to the school addressed to Ms MacDonald. In the note indicate your full name, e-mail address, the book you wish to borrow and the name of one of your children at the school. Books will be sent home with one of the children in the family and may be borrowed for a three week period with the possibility of one renewal (again by note through the school is fine). If the book is very popular or there are people waiting, the borrower may receive an e-mail indicating the renweal is not possible and asking themm to return the book. In the case of a very popular book the borrowing time may also be reduced to two weeks.

Tips for Parent Teacher Interviews

Parent teacher-interviews are held two or three times a year at the end of each term when report cards are sent home. They are opportunities for parents and teachers to talk together about how to help each child succeed in school. They are very short - usually 10 or 15 minutes. It's important to prepare before the interview to make the best use of that short time. If you need more time, schedule another appointment.

  1. PREPARE: Read your child's report card. Make notes about your questions and concerns. Talk to your child about the report. What do you want to ask the teacher? Make a list.

  2. ASK QUESTIONS: Arrive on time. Bring your list of questions. The teacher will review your child's report card or show you samples of his or her work. Tell the teacher what your child likes and dislikes about school Let the teacher know if you think there is too much or too little homework. Parent teacher interviews are strictly confidential. Share personal information that might be affecting your child's progress or behaviour at school (e.g., family illness, job search). This information will help the teacher understand your child better.

    What does my child do well? 
    What skills does she or he still need to develop? Is my child getting extra help? In what subjects? What is your homework policy? How much time should my child be spending on homework? How does my child get along with the other students? How can I help my child at home? What is the best way to contact you if I have more questions? Take notes so that you can share the comments with your child.

  3. FOLLOW UP: Talk to your child. Stress the positive things the teacher said. Talk about how you and the teacher are going to help with the things that need to be improved. 

Safety and the Internet

This brochure is intended to help you improve your children’s safety on the Internet. It includes information about children from 10 to 12 years-old, common interests at this age, and strategies to help them stay safer online. It is especially important to teach this age group safety strategies as they are approaching adolescence, which is a very complex period of development.

As the significance of the Internet grows in childrens lives, a variety of needs are being met online. This can include developing and maintaining friendships, seeking privacy, and exploring new interests. It is important to explain to children that the Internet is a public place. Establish the expectation that online activity will be adult supervised.
