This month a increased focus on having positive conversations, how to listen and be aware of how we interact with others. "WEAR PINK" . This is an ideal day to get everyone involved in working toward eliminating the struggles faced by so many kids today. This day uses the color pink to raise awareness and fight against bullying, discrimination. Please be part of our journey in  making the world a brighter place through acts of kindness and genuine connection. During the month of February CLOS students will be participating in the "CLOS you being KIND"! Students will receive tickets from staff for caught being kind. Students can earn rewards such as sundae making bar, earning increased social literacy time or the top goal of a pizza party! At LLBOS, JLA AND COS as well as BOS are offering the Learner Prep Presentation that will help our student achieve success in challenging their learner test. Also being offered is digital media addiction and safety awareness. At LLBOS with JLA AND COS a field trip to Portage College Lac La Biche. 

Lunch time and snacks are offered to our outreach students daily to ensure a health body, healthy mind uplifted spirit and the energy to learn. 

Explore these carefully selected resources for parents and students of all ages, designed to inspire and cultivate kindness: I checked these sites out and though there are more basic activities for the younger years I found that reviewing the activities  reminded me of the joys of learning and sharing with my teens and my grandchildren and using some of these activities

Reflecting on Last Month: Your Insights Matter! January 

January was a busy month for our students. PD exams was held for many of our students and for others the journey to complete course work prior to the new term. In January we also explored the topic of self care. CLOS student's participated in self care activities such as Barre Classes with Big Al, yoga and making bath bombs and essential oils spray to put in their stress kits.

in January with recognition on Mental health. Mental health challenges occur all year long there is no way that we know when others are facing their challenges. Whether it is  physical or mental wellbeing. "Just talk about it, ask someone how they are doing". Let them tell you their story and challenges. Help them access resources and supports and keep the conversation ongoing.
