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.

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
In the flyer you and your kids will find tips on making friends, handy posters, a video in french and english with ideas for school success, an audio link on anxiety in children and community resources. It is Remembrance Day coming up, a lovely video clip at the end. Everything is clickable and don’t forget to browse the pinterest families and teen sites too. I hope you all have a nice November!
