Good evening. There will be a second Mental Health Symposium for our family of schools(BMHS, Bessborough, Hillcrest,and EPS). This presentation will take place at EPS on Wednesday, March 1st starting at 6:30PM. Our two guest speakers will be speaking on the following:


 Sleep and its Connection to Resiliency:     Resiliency, strong mental health and it's connection to sleep. Children, especially teens are at an important stage of their growth and development, and because of this, they need more sleep than adults.  Come learn the science behind  the importance of a good night's sleep and strategies you can use to help your child sleep more soundly.


Mindfulness:      If you are curious to learn more about 'mindfulness' -- this session is for you!  We will explore how mindfulness teaches us to notice when we are experiencing emotions and feelings.  To stop and watch how we feel in our mind and in our body, and, how to react differently than we may have i9n the past. We will discuss how mindfulness can help people of all ages and the science of how it affects our learning.  We will even practice experiential moments of mindfulness!


This is also a friendly reminder that Friday March 3rd is Crazy Hair Day at EPS. Students will pay $1.00 to participate in this event.


As well  the March Break begins next week. As a result, the school will be closed from March 6th to 10th.


This is your school connects message for February 27th. Thank You and enjoy your evening.
