Dear Grade 8 Families,
On behalf of Resurrection Catholic Secondary School, in the absence of a Grade 8 Night, we’d like to share information about the high school that includes a video overview as well as 14 additional recorded videos which provide information about each of the school’s departments. The webpage also includes a note from our school chaplain, librarian and school administrators.
Please take the time to explore the school and don’t hesitate to contact anyone of us at the school at 519 741-1990 or the Resurrection website, click on ‘about us’, then ‘staff lists’ for specific emails.
We look forward to having you join our Phoenix community,
Leisha Craftchick, Patrick Eby, Mark Modolo and Marisa Munroe

See the rain of life as important for your child
Imagine you are on stage about to perform for thousands of people. You’re sitting at a beautiful piano but you have never played it before. The crowd is expecting a brilliant performance and you are not prepared. How do you feel? Fear? Panic?
This example beautifully parallels life. In order to be prepared for something we need to practice. To build resilience we need adversity. Every time we successfully weather a challenge in life, we gain a little bit more confidence in our ability to do that and we become a bit more resilient. Most parents dislike seeing their children upset and stressed, thinking that a bad thing has happened. Actually most of the small challenges in life are what prepare you for the bigger ones along the way.
Now imagine you are sitting at that piano in front of thousands of people. Leading up to this point you have taken many lessons. You’ve performed first at your school recitals and slowly with bigger and bigger audiences and bigger and bigger venues. You’ve played this specific piece so many times your body naturally plays the keys without really thinking about it. This is the biggest performance of your life so far but you are ready. Better, right?!
Teach your kids to play at life. The good stuff, the tough stuff…don’t shelter them from all of life’s sprinkles. You can even try to feel a little bit of happiness, mixed in with the normal parent worry, every time they get to practice.
Health & Happiness,
Dr. Jen, The Umbrella Project
