Watch the CBC story featuring Epiphany ... click the link below to watch:
 
 
 
Bullying has been a problem in schools and many adults today also note being bullied when they were in school.  Bullying, in many forms also occurs in workplaces, homes, and especially over the Internet.  Throughout the year, we will continue to help raise awareness on these issues.  We’re going to emphasize what it is we’re doing that makes our school a safe and healthy environment.
 
On February 25, 2015, all our students will be encouraged to wear a Pink Virtue T-Shirt to symbolize that we as a school and the future adults of this country will not tolerate bullying anywhere.
 
At Epiphany, as a Catholic school community our focus is always on aspiring to be a caring, welcoming, and inclusive community where each individual is valued and well respected.
With initiatives as noted below, we believe that staff, parents, and students will be better able to respond to difficult situations that may arise both in school and in the community.  We believe that our everyday practices will continue to help each individual in the Epiphany community to prevent bullying and build positive relationships through modeling and peer mentorship.
 
Some initiatives and common practices:
- Gotcha Programme … “Gotcha Doing Good” – Do good because it’s good to do!
- Monthly Newsletter … Explicit reminders about:
         “We all Belong”, “Respect God; Respect Others; Respect Self”
- Rigor, Growth Mindset & Essential Survival Skills (Work Habits)
- Epiphany Website to keep everyone in the loop and a consistent message
- Student Voice and Parent Voice – All opinions, views, and ideas are respected and valued
- Partnerships with community members, Trustee, Superintendant, are sought and most welcome – We are part of a global village and it takes a village
- Monthly Virtue Gatherings/Assemblies
- Creation of House System
- Epiphany Website
- Parent-Student Handbook for all families ... Great collaboration & input from all
- Signage outside ... make you think and act with purpose

We walked the Terry Fox Run/Walk in 2013 and together we raised over $500 – This year we hope to do the same and we’re asking for your support for this worthy charity event.
 
We are certain that you know a family member, a friend, or work colleague who has been afflicted by this disease.  So, we ask if you could support us in our efforts to support those all around us. This year, in the third year of our pastoral plan (The Year of Charity), “Team Epiphany” , who are 175+ people strong (students, staff, parents, and friends), are all walking for a truly worthy cause. 
 
To donate: 
(a) Your child will receive a pledge sheet (fill in and return to school with a donation). Tax receipts are mailed out in February 2015.
 
(b) Easier and Faster (done in 5 minutes): You can donate Online - The link above at TEAM EPIPHANY or the link below will both direct you to the Epiphany’s Terry Fox web page.  Your donation would be greatly appreciated (Tax receipts are emailed to you within 30 minutes of completing your donation):
 
 
A Challenge:  We would also like to invite those who live in the Epiphany Community to walk with us on Wednesday September 24th at 9:30AM. 
 
For those parents/family members who join us on the walk, the school will gladly donate an additional $10 per person to the Terry Fox Foundation.

DrumFIT

Learn It!  Live It! Love It! For Life!
The above is the title of the TCDSB Health and Physical Education Conference we were invited to present at on January 31.  Of course they were talking about Health and Physical Fitness – a lifelong love we wish to inspire in every student.  We were lucky enough to hear Keynote speaker, Claire Carver-Diaz, Olympic Medalist in Synchronized Swimming at the Sydney Olympics, speak.  Her inspirational message was to remember 3 key things when teaching or coaching: 
 DrumFIT logo.jpg

1.     Take time to listen to the students you are working with
2.      Everybody has a backstory (even the kids who seem most together are dealing with something)
3.      As a coach or teacher it's okay to ask for help - everyone has their area of expertise and by asking for help you are modelling that you are not an expert on everything
She spoke of the power that coaches/teachers have on kids - kids tend to hide things and to not deal with some matters - so watch for this as best you can and be aware of how much your thoughts and actions influence theirs.  Sport was her outlet to let stress out.  She asked parents not to steer their kids in what they want them to do, but to listen to what the kids themselves want to do - and let them make decisions about that sport.
We believe that one of the beautiful things that happens with DrumFIT is that every individual is included  and everyone is allowed to express themselves in a way that they want to, based on their needs for that particular day.  It is an outlet for stress and to respond to the beauty and power of music .  Look for opportunities in every school day for each child to have this chance and know that we, as educators, are not the “experts” in our children’s learning experience , we are merely the facilitators.

Bullying is a problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and especially over the David Shepherd and Travis PriceInternet.  Throughout the year, we will be helping raise awareness on these issues and provide links, activities and some of the tools needed to be an upstander and not a bystander.  We’re going to emphasize what it is we’re doing that makes our school a safe and healthy environment.
On February 11, 2014, all our students will be encouraged to wear a Pink Virtue T-Shirt to symbolize that we as a school and the future adults of this country will not tolerate bullying anywhere. We wish we could take credit for this idea, but it comes from two incredible Nova Scotia high school students.
