CARLINE & COFFEE
We are excited to introduce CARLINE & COFFEE as a monthly opportunity to volunteer and learn more about South School.
Once a month, we will welcome parents to volunteer during student arrival (8:30 a.m.) and then enter the building for coffee and conversation. Please follow the LINK to volunteer for our first CARLINE & COFFEE on February 4th. If the volunteer spots fill up, we ask that you still indicate that you will be attending the meeting so that we arrange seating.
The agenda for our first meeting will include an overview of South School and a building tour. SAVE THE DATE for our 2022 CARLINE & COFFEE sessions - February 4, March 4, April 8, and May 6. Please call the office with any questions.

ALLIANCE for EARLY CHILDHOOD PARENT PROGRAM
ALLIANCE FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD PARENT PROGRAM - The Roots of Resilience and Resourcefulness
DATE: Wednesday, January 19
TIME: 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
While it is within every human’s capacity to be resilient and resourceful, this potential is not always realized for everyone. Raising children who can face adversity with confidence and find creative solutions to challenges has never been more important. Adults play a key role in cultivating the roots of resilience that will have lasting effects on their capacity to endure and find a way through difficult experiences. Facilitated by Deborah MacNamara, PhD. Dr. Deborah MacNamara is on Faculty at the Neufeld Institute, author of the best-selling book Rest, Play, Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers (or anyone who acts like one), and the Director of Kid’s Best Bet Counseling and Family Resource Centre.
INSTRUCTION DURING COVID-19 QUARANTINE
When students are placed in quarantine due to COVID-19, South School teachers will provide access to asynchronous instruction. Teachers will share learning activities and students will have access to their school-issued iPad. Classroom teachers will provide a brief daily zoom check-in to keep students on track. We will also provide pre-recorded videos and lessons from our special-area teachers.
