"Just wanting to send my appreciation to you and the division for taking this initiative to educate our kids through a universal approach. It’s a needed addition to the discussions that should be happening at home and we are very grateful for the added support in having these conversations!"
~ April Reschny, Holy Spirit Academy parent, High River
Sacred Heart Academy School Council Chair, Claudette Thorhaug, invited parents to a community event referencing #Relationships. Here is what she said about the initiative and council's desire to pay more attention to those sitting beside you:
"This year we are focusing on #Relationships In A Digital Age. We want to see more family fun events that help create a relationship with families and getting to know other families. Life can become so busy that next thing you know we are looking at these little screens, replying to work emails, catching up with friends, and ensuring our calendars are up-to-date with the next days events. However, next thing you know you might find you are becoming closer to people who are further away from you, rather than the ones sitting right beside you wishing they could have just half the attention you provide to a little screen."
