Terry Fox Run
All Clover Bar Jr. High staff and students will be participating in our Terry Fox Run on Thursday Sept 26th 2019.
Our run will begin at 10:45 am with an opening ceremony, followed by students having the choice to bike, run or walk the route. Those who choose to bike will be expected to complete the route a minimum of two times but are encouraged to complete as many laps as possible. We will be participating rain or shine, so students need to make sure they have appropriate clothing.
Students can choose how they would like to complete the course but must have the necessary safety equipment in order to participate.
Bikers must have a CSA approved helmet and fill out an additional form available at the office.
“Toonies for Terry”- we are asking of a donation of $2.00 per student to participate in the race. Toonies will be collected as students enter the gymnasium prior to the opening ceremony or in homeroom. Online donations are greatly appreciated at:
Hot Dog Sale!!! We will be having a hot dog sale at the finish line. Students will be required to participate in the run until the Hot Dog Sale starts, which is when regularly scheduled lunch begins. Hot Dogs and chips will be $2.00 with all proceeds going to the Terry Fox Foundation.
Parents are welcome to join us. You can participate physically, or we could use your help as cheer teams or crossing guards.
Thanks for supporting this worthy cause. Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.
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.
