Back to school can be an exciting and sometimes anxious time. To help make the transition as smooth as possible, we are sharing a few tips from our Student Services team based on Dr. Bruce Perry’s, Creating an Emotionally Safe Classroom.

  • Parents and caregivers should try to keep the first few weeks of school simple. Repeat the schedule many times. Once a child feels comfortable with the school day, flexibility and change can more easily be introduced.
  • Emphasize the importance of good nutrition and proper rest. Children learn best when they are well rested and fed.
  • Watch for a child's overload point. Let children find a quiet space when they seem to be overwhelmed.

In Pembina Trails we are proud to offer many layers of support for our students. Our staff work closely with a wide variety of professionals including, but not limited to, counsellors, therapists and psychologists.
