New Release - Testing for Lead in Drinking Water - April 4, 2017

In consultation with the Province of British Columbia and Fraser Health, the Mission Public School District tested the water in 14 School District buildings from over 150 sources to measure the amount of lead in the water at each source. The tests resulted in 39 fountains being decommissioned, one fountain being replaced, re-piping the plumbing for a second fountain that was being replaced, and where necessary installing signs to advise that the water from the faucet or sink must be flushed for 2 minutes before use.

Neuro Emotional Literacy


To sign up, click on the blue link below:



What is it?  

Six one-afternoon-per-week workshops on how emotions work in the brain and the body,

how emotions can be recognized and managed, and how you can help your children learn to better manage their emotions.


Research shows that children who have caregivers (i.e. parents, daycare workers, teachers) who have knowledge about

emotional literacy and who practice and model effective emotion regulation strategies: are more empathetic and less likely

to bully, are better able to cope with stress, do better in school, and experience higher degrees of emotional and physical well-being.

When? One day per week for 6 weeks: October 12–November  16, 2:30 – 5:00 p.m.

Information meeting/registration on October 5, 2017 at 2:25 p.m. Room 134.

Bring your children. Coffee/tea/juice and snacks served.

What’s in it for me?

  • Free childcare while you are attending the workshops
  • Free dinner for you and your family after each workshop
  • Free snacks for you and your children after school (and coffee/tea for adults)
  • Become a better manager of emotions to improve well-being for your family
  • Become part of a parent support group to relieve the stresses of childrearing
  • Certificate of Achievement

Comments from parents who have already completed the workshops:

“Every parent should take this course!”

“I am a better parent and a calmer person after taking this course.”

“Because of this course, I have tackled things I didn’t think I could ever do.”

“I made a very good friend because of this course.”

“I am so much better at dealing with the stress of parenting.”
