This week:

Tech, COVID & Kids - Dr. Shimi Kang

9 March - 7pm - trafalgarpac.ca/shimi

 
Please join us this Tuesday, 9 March at 7pm for an exciting virtual presentation by Harvard educated doctor, researcher, and author Dr. Shimi Kang. The topic is Tech, Covid & Kids.

Dr. Kang will be discussing current issues (tech addiction, cyber bullying, etc) but also will lead us through how to transition our children from an abundance of tech during Covid to a healthy tech habit post Covid. 

Please note: we are hosting this event with 9 other schools. Due to the limited time and possible high volume of parents, we have collected questions from every school in advance of the talk. It will not be a typical Q&A where you can ask questions during the talk.

Dr. Kang has a wonderful book on this topic called The Tech Solution should you like to continue to learn more. 

Please go to trafalgarpac.ca/shimi for more information and to join the event. This is a PAC funded event so no tickets are needed. We hope to see you there!

Are you Interested in Joining the PAC Executive?


We are seeking parents to serve on the PAC next year.

This is a rewarding and important role which can help shape your child’s experience at Trafalgar. Next year holds much promise, where we might be able to do things together again as a school community. 🤞🏻

We are particularly keen to involve parents from our primary years (K to Grade 3) and are hoping to include parents who represent all parts of our school community. One aspect of our diversity we’d like to improve is representation from fellow Trafalgar Dads and male caregivers - we welcome any and all involvement.

If you are interested please contact us at info@trafalgarpac.ca to learn more.

Div 9 Read-a-thon

 
The Division 9 read-a-thon is in full swing! A read-a-thon is when you ask friends and family to support you, then you read, then they donate money to charity.

During the month of March, you can read every day for 20 minutes a day, or you can keep track of how many minutes you read and earn $1 per hour. It will be fun and you’ll help raise money for charity. For more information, and to download a reading tracker, please visit:

科技,新冠肺炎和儿童-康诗米博士

 

3月9日-晚上7点- trafalgarpac.ca/shimi

 

请在3月9日星期二晚上7点加入我们,参加由哈佛大学毕业的博士、研究员和作家康世米博士所做的激动人心的虚拟网络演讲。主题是科技、新冠肺炎和儿童。康博士将讨论当前的问题(科技成瘾、网络欺凌等),也将指导我们如何将我们的孩子从Covid - 19期间的大量使用电脑科技转变为Covid - 19后的健康应用科技习惯。

 

请注意:我们将与其他9所学校一起举办这次活动。由于时间有限,家长人数可能较多,我们在讲座前收集了各个学校的问题。这不会是一个典型的问答环节,你可以在演讲过程中提问。如果你想继续了解更多的话,康博士有一本关于这个话题的书叫做《技术解决方案》。 

请去trafalgarpac.ca/shimi查询更多信息。这是一个PAC资助的活动,所以不需要门票。

我们希望在那里见到你!
