Jersey Day Prize Winners

Today we showed our school spirit by participating in Jersey Day!  It was awesome to see so many students and staff join in the fun with their favourite team shirt.  We saw shirts from all kinds of teams in sports like soccer, hockey, and football.  We had a random draw from all students participating for tickets to this Saturday’s Calgary Hitmen Hockey game.  Thank you to our friends at the Calgary Hitmen for their donation of tickets.  Congratulations to our winners: Matteo, Alexander, and Morgan!

Parent and Trustee Forum

Parent and Trustee forums are opportunities for school councils and CSSD trustees to get together to lean and discuss important topics.  The following forum is open to all parents, not just school councils.  There are two opportunities:  We are part of forum 2, which meets tonight, and are also welcome to attend forum 1, which meets on Thursday evening.  Times, locations, and dates are confirmed below.

ANXIETY AND LEARNING IN SCHOOLS
Anxiety is a normal part of being a human being serving to protect individuals from harmful aspects of the environment. Too much anxiety, however, can and does interfere with learning. In this presentation we provide an overview of how the brain responds to anxiety and how that in turn impacts learning. We will provide specific examples of what parents can do for children and youth in response to anxiety.

Sharon Friesen, PhD
Vice Dean
Werklund School of Education
