Clothing Drive Success!

Written by Paul Fulce. Posted in MS/HS Principal

Our CAS students had another successful year for the collaboration with the Fundación GLORR. This Foundation assists children and families living in extreme economic deprivation and social exclusion.  They also provide clothing and footwear for children & their families.  Thanks to a wonderful team of grade 11 students with the support of Emma Kerr in our elementary school, we provided GLORR with more than 60 bags of clothing this year. This happens thanks to the great generosity of our parents and staff, so thank you to all of our community.

How to talk to teens about drug use

Written by Paul Fulce. Posted in MS/HS Principal

Being a teenager and raising a teenager are individually, and collectively, enormous challenges. For many teens, illicit substance use and abuse become part of the landscape of their teenage years. Although most adolescents who use drugs do not progress to become drug abusers, or drug addicts in adulthood, drug use in adolescence is a very risky proposition. Even small degrees of substance abuse (for example, alcohol, marijuana, and inhalants) can have negative consequences. Typically, school and relationships, notably family relationships, are among the life areas that are most influenced by drug use and abuse.

As a parent, you may not even know the landscape that currently confronts your child around drug use, both legal and illegal.  Click the link to find resources from on drugs, drug use, and how to talk to your child about drugs and their effects. Drugs-FAQ
