We’re excited to let you know that a filtered water fountain/bottle refill station has been installed and is ready to go! Please remind your children to bring a refillable water bottle from home, as we continue to encourage them to lead a healthy lifestyle. Looking forward to seeing you at the PAC meeting on Tuesday morning at 9:00am.
Attention Parents of Grade 5 students…. we have pre-registered your Grade 5 child at HD Stafford Middle School for September, 2018. Please let the Office know if you will be making alternate arrangements for your child this Fall.
Also, please contact the Office if you have a 4-year old at home that you plan to send to Blacklock Fine Arts for Kindergarten in September, 2018, and have not yet registered them, as registrations are ongoing at this time.
The following may be of interest to parents of Grade 4 & 5 students:
Registration is now open for iGirl or iGuy taking place on Feb 23 (ProD). For those who have attended Saleema Noon Sexual Health Education sessions in the past you may have heard about this and may have been waiting to hear this news….for those who have never heard of Saleema Noon (Saleema and her team are AMAZING) you may also be interested to hear….I’m setting up igirl and iguy workshops at Stafford for the Pro D happening Fri Feb 23.
iGirl is a lighthearted, empowerment workshop that prepares 9–12 year old girls for the multimedia pressure-cooker they’ll soon encounter in their teenage years. Saleema Noon and her iGirl team tackle topics including, safety on the internet, healthy body image, how to be assertive in even the toughest situations and how to have healthy friendships and relationships.
iGuy is a straight-to-the-point, lighthearted empowerment workshop that prepares 9-12 year old boys to make smart decisions in even the toughest situations. We’ll challenge society’s definition of masculinity, unmask our secret identity,blow off some steam (in a healthy way), tackle online safety, and help build relationships we can feel proud of. In a style that makes sense to guys, Saleema Noon’s team takes the role of older brother, giving your son the skills and information needed to ace his teenage years.
iGirl & iGuy workshops are being scheduled at Stafford School on Friday February 23rd 2018 Pro D day, 10am-3pm.
Space is limited. I will plan another session if this one fills up. Each group has max of 30 kids.
Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-614-1780 to register or if you have questions…cost will be $40 up front to secure your space. Depending on # of participants and if we decide to bring in pizza lunch, you may receive a portion refunded. Max would be $40 per participant. (Subsidy may also be available if needed.)
