Final Reminder: Parent Evening

18 Jan

We’d like to remind you of our School Council’s upcoming parent evening with Dr. Shyamala Kiru on Thursday, January 26th at 7:00 p.m. at Bakersfield P.S.

The focus for the evening’s session will be on Fostering Confidence: Solutions for Overcoming Fear and Anxiety.  Topics include: why confidence is critical to success; the correlation between confidence and anxiety; how to identify anxiety, aka ‘The Confidence Killer’, and simple strategies to help kids boost confidence. This opportunity is entirely free, funded through a Parents Reaching Out (PRO) Grant from the Ontario Ministry of Education.

We would kindly ask that you RSVP by Monday, January 23rd here.  This will help us anticipate attendance and plan accordingly.  Child-minding will be available that evening for school-aged children, as well.  We look forward to learning with you and understanding how we can better support mental health and well-being for all our children!
