New program starting for students and families at Connaught Street School

Article Posted: Friday, February 02, 2018

The John Howard Society of Fredericton Inc. and the Connaught Street Elementary School are partnering on a new and innovative program designed to support students and their families.

Over the course of 10 weeks, parents will have the opportunity to learn about the activities and ideas children are involved with every day.  The program has been designed to both advise and strengthen family communications, while at the same time build upon the foundational components necessary for positive growth and development. 

Students and families involved in the program will focus on emotions, long-term goals, and ways to improve mindfulness.   

Sessions are Tuesday nights from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Connaught Street Elementary School.  Supper is provided as well as childcare. 

The program will start February 6, 2018 and will end April 17, 2018
