MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
Please join us on September 25, 2018 from 5:00 – 6:30 for our Pizza and Meet the Teacher Night. We will be selling pizza and water on the blacktop for $1 each. PLEASE note the time change to allow the parents of our grade 2 students to attend the First Reconciliation and Eucharist Meeting at St Francis Parish
On October 4th we will be hosting a parent workshop with Dr. Jen Forristal, founder of The Umbrella Project. Our school will be participating in the Umbrella Project this year with the goal of improving student wellness. Each month students will learn about and develop a different Umbrella Skill. For more information please see below:
Wellbeing is a skill, in fact we now recognize it is a collection of skills that can be taught to children and adults alike. It isn’t just autonomy, grit or mindfulness, each skill forms a piece of an umbrella of wellbeing that protects us from the rain of life, helps us find meaning in our experiences, and is highly predictive of future success. The umbrella skills are inspirational and identifying them in action is a powerful tool in teaching children how to use them.
The Umbrella Project is an interactive, inquiry-based project teaching the skills of emotional wellbeing. Through classroom lessons and observation of the world around them, students will learn real life applications of each umbrella skill and gain deeper insight into why these skills are essential. The umbrella project highlights the synergy between all of the aforementioned skills, which creates the strongest umbrella of wellbeing. By semester end, the students will create a bank of powerful and inspiring stories of emotional wellbeing that they can reflect on for years to come. (http://www.umbrellaproject.co)
