Changes in Traffic Patterns
Staff at Clover Bar Junior High have been working in conjunction with Strathcona County to develop a new traffic management plan for Clover Bar Junior High School. Upon arrival at the school, you will notice that signs at the Clover Bar School site have been updated to support the new plan that will see buses only in the loop and student drop off limited to Main Boulevard. We would request your cooperation in respecting these signs and all designated parking spaces as we continue to keep our students safe. Thank you in advance.
Connect Parenting Group
This workshop gives a new perspective on relationships and adolescent development. Parents and caregivers meet in small groups with two trained leaders for 90 minutes each week.
Each week, facilitators share practical techniques and ideas that help parents develop a better relationship with their teenager. Parents will be equipped with skills such as empathy building, reframing behaviour, conflict management, and learning how to “step back.” Through “stepping back”, parents are able to “step into” a new way of learning. The safe sharing environment enables parents to learn practical skills, while also hearing concerns from other parents.
The Connect Parent leaders strive to help the participants feel at ease by providing a safe and connected environment to share parenting struggles and successes.
Past participants have shared how Connect Parent has helped them feel a lot more at ease with their own family, knowing they are not alone with their new-found supports of other parents.
Connect Parent is provided free of charge by Strathcona County Family and Community Services. The nine-week program takes place on Wednesdays from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Ardrossan Recreation centre from September 25 to November 27 (no session November 13). A light supper is provided for registered parents/caregivers.
