HELLO ALL.

April is here!

Below is a tip sheet for parents on helping your children make friends, a really helpful article on child anxiety, activities locally, song and video. Please take a look at the Parent Toolkit site that was posted recently to help parents “navigate your child’s personal journey from kindergarten through highschool.” It looks like a good go-to site. Also, some activities for kids of all ages at the public libraries.

Enjoy the flowers popping up!

School Counselor – March Newsletter

https://www.smore.com/kxsgs-we-sel-in-march

Hello All!

March is motoring along and we are heading into spring. I hope you had a nice break, wherever you spent it! Students have been telling me of watching the wonderful fireworks and activities of our Canada Winter Games in Prince George.

However, judging by the “cute” hairdo’s and suntans, not everyone stayed home over the holidays!

This flyer has resources on conversations with your child, teaching life skills, dealing with the stress of moving, and more. Social emotional learning skills lead to school and life success.

Hello everyone!

February is a busy month with Valentines Day, our winter games, pink shirt day, and spring break! Each month of the school year, parents will receive helpful tips, strategies, activities and resources to support children at home. Family and school can work together to improve children’s social emotional learning skills. These skills lead to school and life success. The flyer is an easy read on smartphones and tablets. When parents are engaged and teachers supported, kids are better able to learn. Have a nice February.

Social Emotional Learning Flyer for Parents and Teens

https://www.smore.com/znpcf-november-we-sel?ref=email-content#w-4593624962

This flyer contains articles such as:

helping kids cope with stress

To adults, childhood can seem like a carefree time. But kids still experience stress. Things like school and their social life can sometimes create pressures that can feel overwhelming for kids. As a parent, you can’t protect your kids from stress — but you can help them develop healthy ways to cope with stress and solve everyday problems.

Kids deal with stress in both healthy and unhealthy ways. And while they may not initiate a conversation about what’s bothering them, they do want their parents to reach out and help them cope with their troubles.

But it’s not always easy for parents to know what to do for a child who’s feeling stressed.

Here are a few ideas:http://kidshealth.org/parent/positive/talk/stress_coping.html#cat171
