Baking Club Volunteers Needed

We are looking for volunteers to help run a baking club with a small group of students as part of the Evolve program. The club will run from 3:00-4:00 and can be done on any day of the week depending upon the volunteers schedule. We are looking to start this club during the week of February 23.

This is a great way to make a difference and give back to the community. If you are interested or know of anybody who may be interested, please contact the Cindy via email at cindyvanbeers@gmail.com or phone/text at 780-918-7825.

Rainbows Program Starting Soon

Parkland Village School is excited to continue the program Rainbows this year. Rainbow has been successfully offered here and a number of schools in Parkland School Division the last number of years. This program is meant to provide additional support, build skills and hope for children who have experienced loss or significant change in their lives and is being made available to grade 1-4 students in our school.

When something significant happens in a family, the entire family is affected. The Rainbows’ program helps children who are grieving the loss of a parent or guardian due to death, divorce, deployment, or trauma. Even though death, divorce or loss appear to be only grown up problems, they have a profound effect on the children touched by these experiences. If a parent dies, or a divorce occurs, not only do the parents grieve, the children do also. Due to their age and short life experience, children can find it extremely difficult to verbalize their feelings of grief.

If your child is part of a single, combined, or stepfamily, or has experienced a death or permanent loss of a loved family member, this experience will be an opportunity for him/her to share their feelings with a peer support group and a trained facilitator in a safe non-judgmental confidential setting.

If you feel this program would benefit your child or if you would like more information about the program, please call the school at 780-962-8121 or email tmcnaughton@psd70.ab.ca. We will strive to offer this program to all students who would benefit if at all possible but please contact us as soon as possible to help with the logistics.
