Lake Vista SCC is proud to present 45 minute workshops to help caregivers better understand three areas of concern identified in last year’s Parent Engagement Survey. All workshops are free and pre-registration is not required. Each topic will be presented twice during the evening.
Session 1 – 6:00-6:45
Session 2 – 7:00-7:45
1. Lake Vista Family Math – presented by Chad Williams, Clavet Composite
Are you uncertain how to help your child with mathematics? Confused about what your child is doing in today’s math classes? In this session we will a have deeper look into the “NEW” math and discuss ways you can help support your child and school with mathematics.
2. Kids and Device Use: Learning Alongside Families – presented by Jill Paulsen, Vice-Principal, Hague Elementary School
How much screen time is OK for my kids? What social media apps are my kids using? How did I keep my kids safe online? What’s the impact of media violence on my kids? Join us for an interactive session on device use and kids, where we will explore these big ideas: screen time, social media use, privacy and online safety, learning with technology and violence in the media. Please bring a device (phone, tablet) that has access to wifi and has a QR scanner app installed.
3. Children’s Mental Health – presented by Rachel Subchyshyn, M.Ed (Psy); CCC, Lake Vista School Counsellor
Frequent and sometimes contradictory information coming from the news, online media sources, friends and family about the hazards confronting our kids today cause many parents to feel confused about what to believe and how to best support their kids. Please join us for a short presentation that identifies challenges kids face, the context for mental health, protective factors and highlights some ways we can come alongside our kids and help them through tough times.
These workshops are for parents only. Free childcare will be available at the school for parents planning to attend. Please email SCC_vicechair@icloud.com to book your childcare in advance.
