NEWSLETTER #2
Empathy
Gracious and merciful God of all creation,
You made us to live together
in communities.
We are nothing without relationships.
You have given us the virtue of empathy
to ensure that we are able to identify with
and feel other people’s concerns.
We come to you now asking
for the grace and strength
to help us connect and live together
in a safe and caring way.
May your gift of empathy lead us
to know and feel your presence among us.
Amen.
In October we celebrate the virtue of empathy.
A person with empathy
 Listens when people speak
 Notices when someone is upset and tries
to help
 Can name his/her feelings
 Can see a situation from another person’s
point of view
 Accepts that others have different
perspectives

Principal’s Message
Thank you to our school community for
attending our Open House BBQ and Curriculum
Evening. It was great to see such a wonderful
turn-out. Thank you to our Trustee Tony Da
Silva for making the time to join us.
Thank you to Fr. Jan for celebrating our Opening
and Thanksgiving Mass on October 8th. The
Junior Division did an amazing job planning and
organizing the Mass. The gym was transformed
into a sacred space. The students’ behaviour
was reflective and very respectful during the
Mass. The Choir, under the direction of S.
Muzzatti were awesome!
Thank you to the Intermediate Planning
Committee for organizing the Thanksgiving Food
Drive. The non-perishable food items will be
picked up by the Knight’s Table. The food will
support families in Brampton. Thank you to all
parents for your support in helping the children
make a difference.
Sad news! Due to a drop in student numbers,
we presently have 387 students, Peter
Krolewski, our half-time Vice-Principal, has been
re-assigned to St. Monica School. We wish to
thank Mr. Krolewski for the wonderful work he
did at Pauline Vanier in curriculum, computers,
ice hockey team, the Spirit Week Hockey game,
and the great support he provided students. He
will be missed.

EVACUATION & SAFETY PRACTICES
Pauline
Vanier
School
has
detail
Fire/Emergency Evacuation, Lock Down, and
Hold & Secure Risk Procedures. These
procedures are practiced during the school year
to ensure everyone is aware of the procedures
to follow in order to exit the building safely.
In case of an emergency, our evacuation site is
SOUTH FLETCHER’S SPORTSPLEX, N/E
CORNER OF MCLAUGHLIN and RAY
LAWSON
Students are reminded to wear shoes in the
building at all times. If a fire alarm goes off,
students will not be permitted to stop and put on
shoes, coats, hats, etc. The safety of ALL
STUDENTS is our primary concern.
If you wish your child to be considered for an
empty seat on Bus #1, please have your child
pick up an Empty Seat Request Form at the
Office. Request forms must be received by P.
Krolewski by Thursday, October 23rd.
Please be aware that no additional stops will be
added. You will receive a letter indicating
whether or not your request has been granted.
As we have only one bus in the Kingknoll and
Creditstone area and many more requests than
empty seats available, it will not be possible to
allow everyone an empty seat.
Please note, if requesting an empty seat for
medical reasons, the request must be
accompanied by a note from your Family Doctor.
KISS & RIDE
SCHOOL SAFETY
Could all parents driving their children to
school please use the KISS & RIDE lane.
Please do not allow your children to disembark
from the car until you have reached the front of
the line. Please have your child disembark from
the right side of the car. A staff member will
guide your child to the sidewalk.
We continue to remind our students about
school safety. Students are reminded on a
regular basis that there is to be no physical
contact, i.e. pushing, shoving, hitting, punching.
What can be viewed as playing, can result in
students getting hurt. We realize that in most
cases, children do not mean to hurt other
children, however because of physical contact,
students can get seriously hurt.
Through
continuous reminders, we are trying to prevent
this from happening. We ask your continued
support to remind your children to play with
others without physical contact.
The round-about in front of the Kindergarten and
Child Care Centre yards is reserved for parents
using the Child Care Centre and/or if a parking
space is available for parents of Kindergarten
children that are being walked by the parent to
the Kindergarten yard. Please do not park along
the curb or over the cross-walk in that area, as
you are putting other children at risk. Last week
a parent put their car in reverse, went up on the
sidewalk, and came within a foot of hitting a
child they did not see.
Parents using the Drive-Through Lane (far left
lane), are suppose to turn left and exit. Please
do not cut in front of the Kiss & Ride Lane
(middle lane) to drive into the Child-Care Centre
round-about as you are causing a traffic hazard.
Position your car in the Kiss & Ride lane if you
are planning to park in the round-about parking
area. This way if there is no room to park, a
staff member can safely escort your child from
the car to the sidewalk.
Thank you for supporting safety at Pauline
Vanier.
