Strong Families: Co-Parenting

Strong Families Series: The Art of Co-Parenting

February 28, 2019 – Parkland School Division is proud to present another FREE information session for caregivers. Our upcoming session will help separated or divorced parents and stepfamilies set themselves and their children up for success while navigating the potentially rocky terrain of co-parenting.

Strong Families Series: The Art of Co-Parenting

Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2019
Time: 6-7:30pm
Location: Parkland School Division Centre For Education Board Room (4603 48th Street, Stony Plain)

Presented by Ali Wilks, certified stepfamily coach from Step by Step Mom

Going through a separation or divorce is never easy, and things become even more complicated when children are caught up in the mix. In these situations, ex-partners must set aside their differences and maintain good communication and civility for the sake of their children – which is often easier said than done.

In this session, parents and guardians will have the opportunity to learn useful strategies and develop their skillset for co-parenting: keeping an open dialogue, establishing a consistent set of household rules, maintaining a positive attitude and recognizing boundaries. Mastering these skills will help ex-partners ensure that the burdens of divorce and separation are not shouldered by their children, and that these children are able to grow up in a harmonious and balanced situation.

A light supper will be provided. Limited childcare is available.

Space is limited, so please register early to reserve your spot.

The Forest Behind Muir Lake School

The owners of the property behind Muir Lake School have asked us to pass this along to you as a precaution . . .

Below the snow is ice and water, while some of the water is shallow, some of it can be quite deep; especially near the Beaver Dam.  The beavers require the water to be at least 4 feet deep to adequately build a dam and survive under water through the winter, with our mild winter thus far the ice has not yet frozen thick enough for it to be safe to walk on. With this depth of water and thin ice a person could easily be in danger of falling through and drowning. They are requesting that no one walk on any of the flooded areas.  If you would like to observe the beavers, please do so from a safe distance. 

Although our students have been advised that they need permission to be on the property after school hours, we find it necessary to remind you of the dangers and ask that everyone be respectful of the Jespersen’s request to insure everyone’s safety. Technically if you are on the property after school hours you are trespassing. Should you wish to obtain permission to be on the property, please contact Derek Jespersen directly at 780-819-0164.

Thank you for your consideration and understanding while we continue to insure the safety of our families.
