Online OSSLT - October 20th
During the 2016-2017 school year, all KPR students writing the Ontario Secondary SchoolLiteracy Test (OSSLT) will be making use of a digital tool to demonstrate their reading and writing skills. To support their success, students will be able to take an ‘early opportunity’ on October 20th. If students are successful in meeting the standards of this test, they will have completed their literacy test requirement. Students who are unsuccessful, will receive feedback and support at the beginning of Semester 2 that will allow them to prepare for the regularly scheduled March 30th, 2017 OSSLT.

Parents and students can check out what the test looks like and experiment with a practice version by visiting this website:

School literacy teams have been working hard to prepare for October 20th, 2016 and are ready to answer any questions you may have.

Minds Matter @ KPR: Teaching students about mental health

All of us have mental health as part of our overall well-being.~ Just as they need to learn about physical health, children and teens need to understand their mental health and how to take care of it.

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, one in five Canadian children and youth experience mental illness. Applied locally, this means 6,000 or more KPR students could be in distress at some point this year, while trying to cope with life. This statistic underscores the important role schools play in supporting child and youth mental health.

Under the province-wide health and physical education curriculum, students learn about mental health in elementary and secondary school.~ For example:
  • Grades 1-3 students learn to describe their emotions; appreciate how healthy and active living benefits their mental well-being; understand the importance of positive relationships with other children and adults; and learn strategies for seeking help.
  • Grades 4-8 students learn strategies for maintaining their mental well-being, coping with stress, and asking for help when they feel worried or sad.~ They also receive basic information about common mental health and substance use problems.~ Topics requiring sensitivity or maturity – such as using social media responsibly, reducing the stigma associated with mental illness, and supporting friends with mental health problems – are introduced gradually.~ Students also learn that seeking help is a skill, not a weakness, and they should speak with a caring adult if they need assistance with their thoughts and feelings.
  • Grades 9-12 students learn more in depth about signs and symptoms of mental health problems, finding sources of support, and checking the accuracy of online~ information.~ They also cover complex topics such as substance use, harmful behaviours, cyber-bullying, responding to stress and peer pressure, and suicide prevention.~ Teachers introduce these topics with sensitivity and care, in consultation with KPR mental health professionals.
For more information on the provincial curriculum related to mental health, visit
http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/curriculum/elementary/mentalhealthfact.pdf .~ If you are concerned about your child’s or teen’s mental health, please speak with the teacher, principal or vice-principal, and your family doctor.

Next month’s Minds Matter @ KPR article will offer suggestions on helpful resources for parents and guardians.
