February 18- February 22

Dance a Thon was a great event that was enjoyed by both students and staff alike. Thanks goes out to all who supported our fundraiser, but especially to those parents who gave of their time to sell some glow bracelets and necklaces, and a special shout out to the Student Council! Your energy and leadership were on full display on Thursday! School Council will be updating us on our fundraising results in the next little while. Stay Tuned!

February Umbrella Theme

We continue to explore the Umbrella themes each month and students are starting to build their own personal umbrellas – being able to use various strategies to help them deal with struggles they may face in their lives.  Throughout the month of February, we will be exploring the theme of Mindfulness. Take a minute to read the attached article that can be found at the link below. It has some great activities for your children around Mindfulness.
