Nurturing Positive Connections: Fostering Healthy Relationships in November

Hello, Amazing Parents and Students,

During November, we embarked on a journey dedicated to the art of fostering positive connections and relationships. We’ve been exploring the magic of building meaningful bonds that enrich our lives, from friendships that light up our days to family ties that provide unwavering support, and beyond. 

Mrs. Webb, the Student Advocacy Counselor, has been continuing to teach Kelso’s Choice to the Kindergarten to Grade 4 students. This character education program is invaluable in supporting students in developing positive relationships and resolving conflict. A small group of self-identified Grade 5-7 students have also been working with Mrs. Webb in order to be trained as Kelso’s Choice leaders, and will soon be going into classrooms to facilitate further activities as well as helping younger students on the playground solve small problems. The Kelso’s Choice website has lots of information and resources for families to help reinforce this program at home.
