School District #73 Parent Engagement Sessions 2019-2020


March 3rd:  Keeping our Children Safe from Gangs with Safer Schools Together

British Columbia's gang landscape is vastly different from other jurisdictions.  Children from all socio-economic backgrounds can be vulnerable to gang recruitment and involvement.  Youth are being recruited in ways that our communities have never seen before.  You will leave this presentation with a greater understanding of what you can do to prevent your child from getting involved in gang activity.


April 15th:  Helping Teenagers who have Anxiety/Depression

SD73 is presenting an evening parent workshop to provide information and basic tools to address the number one mental health concern in children, anxiety. Parenting an anxious child can be challenging. Having some understanding of anxiety, how it presents in children, and strategies that parents can use to help their child are pivotal to moving forward. This event is suitable for parents of teenagers.
