CSPC meeting Room 211

At this meeting, we will be outlining for everyone what roles exist on the parent council so that you can start thinking about volunteering for the 2018/19 school year.  We appreciate all the volunteers that come out for the auction, Spring Fling and other events, but we do need some steady hands that can manage the executive roles on the council throughout the year.  At this meeting we will discuss the various positions and those who hold these positions now will share with you what they entail both from a content and time commitment perspective.  Please consider joining us for this meeting.  Nothing we do is rocket science, but committed parents are required to get it all done.  I promise that no one will ask you to write a newsletter at midnight on a Sunday nights!!

Wellness day at St. Leo's

St. Leo Catholic School presents:

The T.A.S.A.M. Program

(Tackling Anxiety and Stress through Arts and Mindfulness)

Tuesday, April 10th -school day (students only)

Parent Discussion- 6:30-8:30

Using our creative arts approach to education, Arts Express has developed The T.A.S.A.M. Program to provide children and their parents with lifelong strategies and techniques to cope with anxiety and stress, helping them effectively eliminate the stigma and discomfort of these issues for years to come. 

During the school day, St. Leo Catholic School students from Grades JK-8 will experience all or some of the following a storytelling performance on the topic of mindfulness called Milton’s Secret, a drama class, a Mindful Movement class, and a visual arts class all focusing on helping students use the creative arts to develop a tool box to use in every day situations when they encounter stress or anxiety.

Parents can then join us in the evening for a presentation by Child and Youth Counsellor and mental health advocate Jennifer Kay to discuss childhood anxiety, parental intervention and how to help your child create the tools needed for a lifetime of wellness.

 The topics that will be addressed by this program will include:

  • Identifying the seriousness of your child’s anxiety and stress levels 
  • Tools to use to help alleviate minor everyday anxieties and stress
  • Kid-friendly approach to developing useful strategies
  • Leading by example
  • The importance of exercise
  • Communicating with your anxious child without frustration
  • Developing a safe structure within the home environment
  •  Knowing when to seek professional help

We will not be charging a fee for students or parents to participate; however a donation of a non- perishable food item will be most welcome.All donations will be donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank.  We will , not only, enhance our wellness but that of others in our school community.
