Parent Resources

We are always adding to our list of helpful information for parents. If you have any information or links you think other parents would find useful, please send them to [email protected].

Emotional Well-being

  • Resources and a teaching guide from an event on “Building Resilience and Growth Mindset” presented by  Dr. Adrienne Matheson, Ph.D., C. Psych., RPT.  The focus was on the meaning of resilience and growth mindset and how to help our children develop these skills.

Health & Fitness

  • Ever wonder why your child is more focused on homework after a good run around the park? According to new research, that game of tag actually helps them achieve at school!
  • EatRight Ontario wants to help you improve your health and quality of life through healthy eating. This service provides easy-to-use nutrition information to help you make healthier food choices.

Supporting Student Learning

  • Did you know that structured literacy helps ALL children learn to read? It’s not just for kids with dyslexia and other learning needs. Merci Conseil Scolaire Catholique du Nouvel-Ontario for sharing these free printables of French phoneme-grapheme cards, "sky-grass-ground" mats, and some examples of French decodable text!
    • Esso Family Math helps parents and children share their thinking and understanding of mathematics in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. When a family has fun working on math together, and respects each other’s thought processes, everyone benefits.
