Mapleview Heights Elementary

Every Child. Every Chance. Every Day.

 Throughout the past few years, the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) and Kinark’s School Support Program (SSP) have collaboratively offered information sessions on various topics related to Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). This year, the Centre for Behaviour Health Sciences at Mackenzie Health is partnering with SCDSB Special Education Staff to offer eight after school workshops for parents/guardians and educators focusing on  Incorporating Methods of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Into Programs for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and the application of ABA strategies within programming. While ABA strategies are necessary for students with ASD, they are good strategies for all students.

Staff and parents are invited to attend the after school workshops at the Education Centre.

 

All are welcome to attend. Teachers and administrators planning to attend can register for any of the above after school presentations on the staff website using the registration utility at http://staff.scdsb.on.ca . Parents wishing to attend are asked to contact Sue McNabb in the Special Education Department at (705) 734-6363 ext. 11246 or [email protected] to register. Since a limited number of spaces will be reserved for parents, registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Grit

“One characteristic emerged as a significant predictor of success. And it wasn’t social intelligence. It wasn’t good looks, physical health, and it wasn’t IQ.

It was grit.”

~Angela Duckworth

 

 

“Grit” is the ability to persevere in the face of difficulty.  It is understanding the difference between “failing” and “Failing at your first attempt”.  We try to get students to change their mindset from “I can’t do it” to “I can’t do it – YET”.  The great thing about Grit is that you can develop it over time.  How can you help your child develop Grit?  Here are some sites to help:

  • Visitors:

    It is IMPERATIVE that visitors (parents) and volunteers sign into the office if they are walking a student to class or volunteering in the school. There are no exceptions to this rule. You must also wear a “Visitor Sticker” displayed in a prominent location in order that students and teachers are aware that you have followed this procedure. Teachers have been asked to approach anyone without a sticker. If you are approached by a teacher asking you to sign in please keep in mind that they are doing this to keep our students safe.
