PARENTING WORKSHOPS

CONNECTING WITH OUR KIDS WHEN ANXIETY LEADS TO SOCIAL ISOLATION.

Parenting when our kid’s anxiety leads to social isolation is hard for everyone. A parent and counsellor talk about what anxiety and social isolation are, what it can look like and feel like for our kids and at-home strategies families can try and how important it is to connect with our children before doing the hard work of trying new things.

ANNUAL STUDENT INFORMATION VERIFICATION FORMS

Recently you received an email* notifying you that your student(‘s) verification forms have now been published in your MyEducation BC Family Portal Account. Please ensure you review this information sheet by logging in to your portal account. Please email johnstubbs@sd62.bc.ca with any changes that need to be made.

Student Verification Forms are a vital way to ensure the school has all your correct information on file. You will review such things as your address, contact phone numbers, those authorized to pick up your student and medical/legal alerts.

*Email notifications for the MyEducation Portal comes from sysadmin@myeducation.gov.bc.ca please double check your junk folders if you are having a hard time locating it.

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

LOTS OF RAIN THIS WEEK! As we head into our wet and cold months please dress your students appropriately for the weather. We always make it a priority to send the children outside in most weather conditions. ALL students need a waterproof coat and boots or a change of shoes.

MASK REMINDER

We need all parent/guardians to wear masks when they enter school property. This is to keep everyone on site safe and ensure our school does not become a hot spot for COVID-19


PICK UP REMINDER

Please note that some teachers are required to lead their class through the courtyard up to the field each day after school. We ask that you help them get there safely by social distancing and making plenty of space for the class to pass through.
