Lord Nelson invites you to parent education night on child anxiety:

Due to the overwhelming interest in our anxiety presentation held at Lord Nelson in 2014, we are again offering our parents, guardians and members of the wider community the opportunity to hear a parent education presentation focused on anxiety.

The angle of this presentation, Anxiety 101, differs from last year’s, and is more developmental in nature. Rebecca Mitchell, M.A., RCC, and a member of The Wishing Star team, will speak about the perceived root of anxiety, alarm, and explore what it is that alarms children.  She will also address coping strategies or ways to overcome alarm in the long term. Date: Monday, March 30 Time: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm (Doors open at 6:00 pm) For more information and to purchase tickets, please click on the following link: http://www.anxiety101.eventbrite.ca ​ Limited space available, so reserve your ticket early online for only $5 dollars.  Should tickets remain on the day of the event, they will be available at the door for $7.   Margie Trovao, Vice Principal Lord Nelson Elementary
