December 2021 - Gratitude

Welcome to the December edition of Wellness Wednesday from Northern Lights Public Schools. 

We are excited to share this month’s resources, which focus on Gratitude. We are grateful for many things, including the support we receive from our NLPS families to continue our work with our division priority to improve student mental health and wellness. 

This month our Mental Health Team (Wellness Coaches and Student Advocacy Counsellors) has collected activities and resources you can use at home to help your children practice gratitude. We will also be focusing on gratitude with students in our schools throughout the month of December.

Things got away from us a bit in November and we missed sharing our Wellness Wednesday update with you. If you would like to check out our Healthy Relationships resources, please check out the November Wellness Wednesday blog on our website. 


Stories of Hope

Have you heard our Stories of Hope on your local Stingray station (boom 95.3, Hot 101.3, boom 103.5)? Interviews with our staff and students run every second Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. Our next interview is scheduled for December 8 and will feature Aurora Middle School in Lac La Biche. You can also hear our Stories of Hope commercials airing daily on all three stations. This month’s ads feature students and staff from Cold Lake Middle School.
