Welcome back to a chilly start to the week! This week, we are hosting four student
teachers to Broadview working in a variety of classes. This is an important time in their
teacher training and I am sure students will enjoy a new face in their classroom. We
also turn from the excitement of the Junior musical to the Intermediate Science fair this
week. Visiting the Science Fair is always a wonderful experience and the student’s
creativity sparks interest for even our youngest students.

Redirecting Children's Behaviour - Parent Workshop
Adrienne Clarkson Elementary School Council welcomes Marion Balla from Adlerian
Counselling and Consulting Group to host a parent workshop. Children learn
from an early age that negative behaviour guarantees attention and involvement by
adults. As parents and teachers, we need to monitor our reactions to ensure that
cooperative behaviours are being encouraged on a daily basis. This
workshop, Redirecting Children's Behaviour, will offer strategies to re-channel
challenging behaviours toward life skills training and new options for children to
consider. Methods of encouragement to increase positive experiences between children
and adults will be highlighted.
When: Thursday, April 16, 2015
Where: Adrienne Clarkson Elementary School Gym
170 Stoneway Drive, Barrhaven
Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm
