Everyday counts

It is imperative that students attend school on a regular basis and on time.  Students are more likely to succeed in school when they attend consistently.  Please make sure to continue with your positive daily routines to ensure that all students arrive on time and ready to learn for the day.

St. Marguerite Tips

Everyone has periods of feeling anxious, however, some feel as though they have no control over how their body is reacting and aren’t able to function in their day-to-day lives. Some signs that your child might have anxiety are excessive worry, sleep disturbance, panic attacks, nausea or muscle tension. Seeking the right support early is key.  The Children’s Anxiety Group is a cognitive-behavioural group for children with, or at risk of, anxiety disorders. The goals of the group are to teach children to recognize emotional and physiological symptoms of anxiety and to learn to more accurately appraise anxious situations. The children also learn strategies (e.g., coping, self-talk, relaxation) to help them manage their levels of anxiety. (For more information visit ROCK)
