We will hand out our valentine cards to each other first thing tomorrow! We made pretty Valentine mailboxes and we will play “Post delivery-boy/girl” and place our cards in each of our mailboxes! We are super excited to do this! 

I thought it would be fun if we all dressed up in either red, pink or white for Valentine’s Day! If you want, please send your child to school with “Valentine” coloured clothes tomorrow! 

Thank-you so much for your support!

Parent Workshop

Thursday February 23rd, 2017

7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Kanata Highlands Public School

Introduction to Mindfulness Workshop

What: Introductory workshop offered to the parents only at Kanata Highlands. This workshop will include the following topics: what is mindfulness; research about the benefits of practicing mindfulness; the stress model, resiliency, and the physiology of practicing mindfulness; experiential exercises; and time for questions and answers.

Parents will gain an understanding of how mindfulness is linked to what our students are learning about self-regulation and self-awareness through the Mindup program.

We would like to request that parents register for the workshop, so we can ensure we meet your needs.

Presenter: Brittany Glynn, Ph.D., is a Certified Mindfulness-Based Symptom Management (MBSM) Teacher and a Trained Teacher in Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). She co-facilitates eight-week MBSM and MSC group courses, while also leading various workshops related to mindfulness, compassion, behavior change, performance psychology, and how to implement self-care and long-term healthy habits for skillful living and well-being. She has led mindfulness and compassion workshops with counselors, parents, school teachers, healthcare professionals, university faculty and graduate students, yoga therapists, and wellness professionals. Currently she is a Postdoctoral Fellow exploring the effects of mindfulness interventions on chronic pain as part of the Interdisciplinary Pain Research Lab at The Ottawa Hospital.
