Bridgetown Elementary Among Many AVRSB Schools Marking "Stand Up to Bullying Day"
Students and staff at Bridgetown Elementary School demonstrated their commitment to peace by creating a giant peace sign outside the school.
Many AVRSB schools held special events, pledges, and fun activities to promote kindness, respect and peace at school, as part of "Stand Up Against Bullying Day", which is celebrated annually across the province on the second Thursday of September.
Kingston and District School Celebrates Peace, Anti-Bullying
Kingston and District School students and staff continued a longstanding tradition by celebrating PINK DAY in style on Thursday, September 11! Every shade of pink imaginable could be found at school that day. Teachers worked with their students on peace and anti-bullying lessons, and everyone took part in an assembly after which they went to the playground for a peace activity. Two teachers had spelled out the word "PEACE" in powdered chalk, and students took their places in the letters to create a fantastic, enormous pink PEACE statement. Much appreciation goes to Glen Abriel, Kingston’s Recreation Director, for supplying equipment. It was a very special event for the entire school!

Decision Reached for DRES, KDS Catchment Areas
Following a public consultation process that began in the Fall of 2013, the governing Board members of AVRSB have decided on a change to the Dwight Ross Elementary School and Kingston and District School catchment areas. After careful consideration, the decision was made at the June 2014 Board Meeting to implement “Option 3”, one of four catchment area options presented to these school communities (Click "read more" to view a larger map and description).
The new catchment areas will take effect in September 2015, and a transition process will be communicated to families in the Fall of 2014. To learn more about this decision and the consultation process, click "Read More".
