What a fun filled week of candy treats and scary costumes! Sr. Dominic hallways were filled with superheroes, princesses and lots of smiling faces as we celebrated Halloween. A special thanks to the Student Council who put on a great dance filled with lots of energy and fun!
Progress reports will be coming home on Tuesday. Please review with your child all of the wonderful attributes they are showcasing this year. Embedded into the progress report are next steps for each student to help them improve. Take a look – lots of suggestions to help move your child forward in their learning!
Pathways Night at Resurrection High School

Wellness Tip of the Week
Break the cycle
Many adults grew up being shut down and ashamed of their feelings. They tried to ignore them in order to get through tough times. We pass this on to kids unintentionally. Children are like mirrors that reflect back what they see in their environments. Teach your kids to grow emotionally by showing them you aren’t afraid to express feelings and to cope in a positive way. Don’t shame your children for having tough feelings or being upset. If you don’t know how, ask for help. There is nothing wrong with needing help. If your children need help, you want them to be able to ask for it, so it is important that you show them you are able to ask for help as well.
If you lose your temper, first apologize; next, show your kids how to grow by making emotionally healthy choices yourself. Teach them by example to take responsibility for their actions. Show them it is normal to make a mistake. It isn’t your fault if you didn’t learn these skills in your childhood. It is likely that your parents weren’t aware of how to cope with their difficult emotions in a healthy way either. Fear of feeling gets passed through generations. You can make a change for the better if you aren’t afraid to challenge yourself and learn new ways to connect with your child. (www.carizon.ca)
