 STRIVE for the Five

STRIVE stands for: Success Through Responsibility, Interest, Values & Effort

The "FIVE" is the word MAGIC


S Success at Bonaventure Meadows Public School is a collective effort which permits students to achieve their personal best at school and beyond.


T Through cooperation all staff, students, parents/guardians and the Bonaventure community will abide by the Code of Conduct and STRIVE to be an encouraging, positive influence on others.


R Responsibility for the choices you make and actions you take, including:

• Safe and peaceful activities

• Following school policies, classroom rules, MAGIC 5 expectations

• Coming to school prepared with all learning materials


I Interest in your school, including:

• Arriving on time, well rested

• Participating in the co-curricular program


V Valuing your teachers, peers and visitors by treating them the way you want to be treated, including:

• Respecting the rights and dignity of others

• Respecting school property and resources

• No “put downs”

• Complying with teachers’ directions promptly


E Effort in making learning a first priority, including:

• Promptly delivering all communications between home and school


At Bonaventure, we S.T.R.I.V.E. for the 5:

M – Make time to listen and speak respectfully All students will be provided with time and support to calm down in any heightened situations. Bonaventure staff will support students and teach them strategies so that they can remain calm, safe and respectful in the learning environment.

A – All our rules will be fair and reasonable The expectations we have of our students will be attainable and appropriate for their different age groups, abilities and developmental levels.

G – Give and Show Respect. Students and staff are all expected to treat each other with kindness and respect. Students will learn what respect looks like, sounds like and feels like as part of our Character Education program focus.

I – I keep my hands to myself. Students will be taught that conflicts can be solved by using helpful words- not hurting hands. Actions that are aggressive and violent are unacceptable. A progressive discipline approach will be used to ensure that the consequences are appropriate in each situation.

C – Consequences are appropriate for my own actions. Our goal is to teach students to understand that they are responsible for their behaviour and capable of managing their own actions. Acceptable behaviour, problem solving strategies, and anti-bullying procedures will be taught and practiced early and in an ongoing basis throughout the year.


Attendance Reporting

If your child is going to be absent, notify the school by:

  1. SchoolMessenger Attendance Reporting System
  2. Call the toll free number: 1-844-305-3756
  3. Report the absence through our smartphone mobile application:

Students who attend school regularly tend to be more engaged in their learning, feel more connected to the school and have better academic outcomes than students who miss a lot of school.  For more information regarding creating an account or reporting your child's absence, please see our Step By Step Guide.

Did you know?

  • If your child is 20 minutes late every day, he/she will have missed 12 days of school instruction by the end of the school year.
  • If your child misses two days of school per month, he/she will have missed one month worth of instruction by the end of the school year.
  • Students who are absent 15 days of school each year will have lost one year of instruction by the end of grade 12.

We can help

Let your school know if there is a problem or concern. There are many ways we can work together to get attendance back on track, or prevent an attendance problem from starting.

Early Dismissal and Late Arrivals

School dismissal time is 3:30 p.m. If you must pick up your child early, please: Send a note with your child clearly indicating the reason and time you will pick up your child. When you arrive to pick up your child, come to the main doors and ring door bell (to the left of main doors) and sign him/her out.


Please note that under no circumstances will your child be released to anyone who is not on the contact list. Be sure to notify the office if you are allowing someone else to pick up your child, preferably in writing.


If you need to change your pick up time during instructional hours, please call the office.
