Strong Families

Strong Families Series: Surviving Sibling Rivalry

Parkland School Division is proud to present another FREE information session for caregivers. Our April session will help parents sort out the conflicts brewing between their children, and learn how to encourage cooperation and prevent any sibling rivalry from escalating into a bigger problem.

Strong Families Series: Surviving Sibling Rivalry

Date: Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Time: 6-7:30pm
Location: Parkland School Division Centre For Education – Board Room (4603 48th Street, Stony Plain)

Is there bickering, competition, jealousy, and fighting happening between your children? Sibling rivalry is a natural part of the sibling relationship and it can drive parents crazy!

In this presentation we will discuss:

  • What is sibling rivalry? Why does it happen?
  • Strategies to reduce the frequency of sibling rivalry.
  • Strategies to encourage children to work together instead of against each other.

Join us for an in-depth discussion of these topics and more.

A light supper will be provided. Limited childcare is available. Please register early to reserve your spot.

Technology Innovation Plan

We are very excited about this Google Apps and student e-portfolio initiative that will empower students to increase collaboration, develop technology and digital citizenship skills, and demonstrate and showcase their learning through creating personal learning e-portfolios. You can read in detail about the initiative below; however, we just wanted to qualify that this plan will be implemented in stages. We wanted to take the opportunity to make you aware of this project; however, prior to your child participating in this, you will recieve a paper copy explaining the initiative and letting you know that your child will be starting to create their own e-portfolio.

The Vision of Muir Lake School and Parkland School Division

Our students use technology to learn. Technology is essential to facilitate the creative problem solving, information fluency, critical thinking skills, and collaboration that we see in today’s world. While we want our students to be active contributors in our connected world, we also want them to be safe, legal, and responsible.

About The Parkland School Division Initiative

Based on the idea of “Collaborate. Create. Learn.” as created by the Future Planning Team, and the Alberta Education Competency Wheel, we believe it will be extremely beneficial to Parkland School Division to look at moving towards creating digital portfolios for all students. Continue reading
