Spring Safety at Ardagh Safety at Ardagh<p>​</p><p style="text-align:center;">BIKES/SCOOTER SAFETY</p><p> </p><p>As the spring weather is upon us, we are seeing many more students finding alternative ways of getting to and from school.  There are fewer cars going through the kiss and ride and many more students walking, cycling, skate boarding and scooting to school.  While we are very happy to see this and want to encourage it, we want to ensure the safest possible school and yard for all of our students and their property.</p><p> </p><ul><li>Students are reminded to walk on school property.  There are too many people on the yard for students to "ride" once on property.  </li><li>Students can bring their scooters into the school as long as they are the small ones (with small wheels and a collapsible/foldable handle).  These small scooters can be kept up against the walls behind their coat hooks. Students that are unable to fold their scooter are asked to come in last so they may safely go upstairs with it.</li><li>Anything bigger than these (e.g. large scooters, bikes etc.) will have to be locked to the fences along the school yard.  </li><li>Please remember that the school cannot be responsible for the loss of or damage to scooters/bikes etc.</li><li>Be sure to wear your BIKE HELMET at all times!</li></ul><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;">Thanks for your support and keep leaving the car at home!</p><p style="text-align:center;"> </p><p style="text-align:center;">SAFE FOOTWEAR FOR PLAY!</p><p style="text-align:center;"> </p><p>While flip flops have become everyday fashion, we encourage students to wear safe footwear for outdoor play.    Not only does wearing them increase the chance of serious injury due to dropped objects or stubbed toes, but they are also associated with ankle sprains, and insole pain caused by their lack of support. Children especially are not able to safely play at recess or climb stairs. Please consider having your child wear closed toe shoes. </p>

EQAO<p>​</p><p>EQAO assesses how well Ontario's public education system is developing students' reading, writing and math skills. EQAO provides reliable and useful information that is used to help improve student achievement and ensure the accountability of school boards.  Ardagh Bluffs analyzes results and we set goals for our teaching practices.  EQAO is one aspect of the puzzle and we look at all sorts of valuable data when setting goals for school improvement!</p><p> </p><p>Parents of Grade 3 and Grade 6 students are asked to ensure students arrive at school on time and appointments/lessons are booked for end of day during the testing weeks.  Testing occurs from May 25-June 8.  </p><p> </p>
Physical Literacy Literacy<p>​</p><p><strong>Experts agree that physical literacy is just as important as reading, writing, and arithmetic.</strong></p><p>Physical literacy comes from developing a wide variety of fundamental movement skills such as hopping, skipping, throwing, catching, and jumping.</p><p>Physically literate kids have a lot more fun being active, and physically active ids get higher grades in school, have better social skills, and are happier and more confident.  As a parent, give your child the right start in sport, school, and life.  Enroll them in programs that develop physical literacy, and get them started with activities at home.
