Strong Families Series

Strong Families Series: Recognizing Alternatives to Getting Explosive

January 15, 2019 – Parkland School Division is proud to present another FREE information session for caregivers. Our upcoming session will help parents better recognize the signs of anger and implement strategies to prevent its escalation, while practicing their skills in defusing potentially explosive situations.

Strong Families Series: Recognizing Alternatives to Getting Explosive

Date: Tuesday, January 22, 2019
Time: 6-7:30pm
Location: Parkland School Division Centre For Education Board Room (4603 48th Street, Stony Plain)

Presented by Jaemi Bertrand, BA Q. Med from Laurier Mediation and Conflict Management

In this session, parents and guardians are invited to spend the evening with a qualified mediator to gain an understanding of how adults and children experience and express anger, and the means by which conflicts can be resolved without resorting to rage. Learn how to communicate more effectively, recognize multiple solutions to the same problem and work together to choose the best outcome for everyone involved.

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

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

Winter Phys Ed Day

This year the grade 7 to 9 students will be participating in a Winter Physical Education Day. On Thursday January 31st they will be going skating at Rundle Park and tubing at Sunridge Ski Hill, both located in Edmonton. Students will have the opportunity to skate on the two kilometers of skating trails in Rundle Park with their friends and classmates, and have 2 hours of exhilarating tubing at Sunridge Ski Hill. These are motivational activities relating to their fitness and outdoor pursuits in Physical Education. All students are expected to attend this field trip and participate in the day’s activities.

Equipment that students will need to provide includes a pair of skates and a CSA Approved skating helmet. Students will also need to come properly dressed for the weather, with snow pants, winter jacket, winter boots, a toque and gloves.

We will be leaving Muir Lake School at 8:15 a.m. sharp on Thursday, January 31st (after the arrival of all the buses) and will be returning at 2:15 p.m.. A hotdog and hot chocolate will be provided during the skating portion of the day. Students will also want to bring a water bottle and lunch. At the ski hill, they will be able to buy food if students want to bring money for snacks, but this could be pricey.

The cost to the students will be a total of $20. This fee will cover the cost of the transportation, tube park pass, and a hot dog lunch.  Fees will be automatically added to your child’s PowerSchool account and can be paid online by debit/credit card through the PowerSchool Parent Portal at or by cash or cheque in the school office. Please make cheques payable to Parkland School Division #70.

The information sheet and permission form have been sent home with the students but can be downloaded by clicking THIS LINK and sent in to the school. Permission forms are due Friday January 18, 2019.

Please note that even though this is considered a curricular activity we must have enough participation in order to run this day of activities. We reserve the right to cancel this event due to insufficient interest or inclement weather.
