Occupational Therapists in the Classroom Therapists in the Classroom<p>​</p><p><strong>Dear Andrew Hunter Families, </strong></p><p>This year, our school is participating in an innovative new program that welcomes Occupational Therapists (OTs) directly into classrooms through a partnership with the local <a href="">Children's Treatment Network</a> (CTN). This is part of the Simcoe County District School Board's (SCDSB) commitment to supporting learning and success.</p><p>Through this new program, OTs will be able to provide additional support to groups of students in classrooms through a Tiered Model of service/support. The goal is to ensure all students have the skills and supports needed to achieve success at school.    </p><p>Within SCDSB schools, CTN partners with Closing the Gap to deliver services such as occupational and physical therapy through the Ministry of Education's School-Based Rehabilitation (SBRS) program.  OTs have regulated health professionals who assist children in developing fine motor skills (e.g., printing, cutting), gross motor skills (e.g., jumping, throwing), self-care skills (e.g., putting on a coat, doing up zippers, opening packages) and self-regulation skills (e.g., being able to control emotions and actions).  At times during the school year, there may be an OT in your child's classroom collaborating with educators to support the students. </p><p>This program may include;</p><ul><li>observing students in their classrooms, the gym, or the playground;</li></ul><ul><li>assisting educators and school staff with ideas and ways for students to maximize participation in classroom activities and routines;</li><li>recommending tools or equipment that may be helpful to any child in a classroom; and, </li><li>supporting educators in determining if additional OT services may be of benefit to a student. </li></ul><p>If a student appears to need additional individualized support, the school will discuss it with families and request permission from the school to make a formal referral to CTN's School-Based Rehabilitation Services.  </p><p>If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's classroom teacher and/or the school administration.<br></p><p><br></p>
Halloween and Cultural Appropriation and Cultural Appropriation<p>​Hello everyone,</p><div>Please consider the following expectations if choosing to send your students to school at Halloween in a costume.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Culture Appropriation and Halloween Costumes<br></div><div><br></div><div>Though dressing up at Halloween is fun and exciting, depending upon the choice of costume we choose to wear, it also runs the risk of being offensive to other cultures. As parents and guardians, Halloween is the opportunity to discuss costume choices with your child and students. It is important not to inadvertently mimic culture by culturally appropriating racial, religious or ethnic groups.</div><div>Some critical equity questions to ask yourself about your costume. Am I reinforcing stereotypes with the image I am portraying? Is my costume a form of exploitation of another culture?<br></div><div><br></div><div>Please see the attached PDF for further clarification<br></div><div><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Cultural%20Appropriation%20and%20Halloween.pdf"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icpdf.png" alt="" />Cultural Appropriation and Halloween.pdf</a><br></div><p><br></p>
