We are pleased to be able to offer 2 parent workshops the last week of May.
Cst. Winkels, our RCMP Liason Officer, will be with us on Wednesday, May 30th from 6:00 - 6:45 pm in the library. Cst. Winkels will be speaking on safety issues regarding kids and the use of social media. Popular platforms such as Snap Chat & Instagram, and the rewards and risks of these platforms will be discussed. This workshop is intended to empower parents so they can speak to their children about social media and cyber safety. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
Tyler van Beers, our school's Family and Behaviour Consultant will be at KBES on Thursday, May 31st from 8:45 - 9:15 am in our library. Tyler will share tips and strategies with families on how to support emotional regulation with children.
We hope you are able to join us for one, if not both of these workshops.
SOGI 1 2 3 has launched new SOGI 1 2 3 Parent Videos that address questions about SOGI 1 2 3 and SOGI-inclusive education in schools. The videos are designed for parents and family members to view and learn about SOGI 1 2 3 in various grade-levels. The goal of the videos is to debunk some of the common misinformation in the media and to support parents in their understanding of SOGI-inclusive education. The SOGI 1 2 3 Parent Videos are available to view and download now on SOGIeducation.org/parents.
Students who will be 5 years old by December 31, 2018 are eligible to begin attending in September. Please register your child ASAP. You will need your child's birth certificate, care card and proof of address. We look forward to welcoming your child to KBES.
