November 2017
Dear  ,  
We hope to see you at our upcoming event,  Managing Meanness by Cultivating Kindness 
on  Tuesday Nov. 28 from 6:00 - 8:00pm in the school gym.  Speakers from  Arts Express  will  share strategies and tips that will help parents/caregivers guide and support their children through difficult social situations while building social confidence and compassion for others.  The parent council felt the value of last year's event by Arts Express (on managing anxiety) was excellent for our school community and it drew an unexpectedly large crowd last year. Please click on the following link for the event flyer:  Managing Meanness by Cultivating Kindness Flyer

We will have light refreshments in the gym and childcare in the library. If you can attend, please let us know by Nov 21 by emailing  cspc.stcyril@tcdsb. org
