Clover Bar Jr. High would like to wish all their students and staff a safe and wonderful summer! This has been a great year with lots of growth and progress. To those students moving on from Clover Bar, whether it be to Grade Ten or other schools, we wish you much success in your new homes.
A special goodbye to staff members leaving our school this year. To longtime teachers, Val Siemens and David Canning, we wish you much happiness in your retirement. The loss of your presence will be felt by staff and students alike. To educational assistant, Marlene Saik, who is also leaving our school, we hope you enjoy much happiness in the next chapter of your life. And finally, to our administrative team of Jacqueline Holmes and Sheryl Tsiclas, we wish a fond farewell and thank you for all you have done for the staff and students of Clover Bar.
To all, always remember...once a knight...always a knight.

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.
