A special acknowledgement to our PAC Co-Chairs, our PAC Executive, and the ADHOC PAC Seismic Cohort Committee (Mr. Guest and Ms. Kong) for their hard work in advocating for our school community and for further study of the Magee/Maple Grove Swing site option.

Last year while walking on my home commute from my workday, I watched two of my elementary aged students toss their back packs to what appeared to be their grandfather who then picked up the packs. The two students then started running and playing while the grandfather accompanied them home with two backpacks in his hand. gas house The students waved at me and said hello. I said hello back, and then I said, “Hey, you should carry your own back packs! Why are you letting your grandfather carry them?” They just laughed and kept on playing, “He always carry’s our backpacks!”

To be fair to my students, they are right. a level physics electricity equations I consistently see parents, grandparents and caregivers grab student’s backpacks, coats, lunch bags or work. And what is wrong with this? Why shouldn’t adults help children carry their stuff? Afterall, we are stronger, more responsible and maybe it even feels good to help children lighten their load.

The problem is that children miss out on a significant opportunity to practice skills that will support their ability to regulate and manage their feelings. We have evolved as a species with the daily practice of contributing to a tribe. Physical labour was an essential part of our survival. Our feeling brain evolved along with the practice of moving, pushing, pulling, carrying and lifting. Our brain and body still carry the connection between helping our tribe survive and using our big muscles.

Let your children carry their own backpacks. This gives them the experience of carrying and lifting. It teaches them to be responsible for their things. It helps them practice the notion that it is their job to take care of their things. Over time, this gives them confidence and assurance in knowing that they can take care of themselves. Our modern day lifestyle is becoming farther removed from the daily tasks that helped teach our brains to manage our feelings.

The school district, admin teams at Magee and Maple Grove, as well as the PAC Co-Chairs (and or designates) of both schools, are trying to set meetings for next week to develop a process for sharing school and neighbourhood comments/ concerns regarding the proposed study of a possible Magee/ Maple Grove swing site with the district. No decision has been made at this point as Deputy Superintendent Nelson said in his letter emailed to the Magee and Maple Grove school communities yesterday. More information to come on this topic and I encourage folks to watch for emails from the school and to read the Maple Grove PAC blog.

However, the school is concerned with some of the fascinating and creative driving habits we witness on a daily basis on Cypress St and on Cypress St and 47th. electricity calculator I would like to remind parents that the school encourages parents to park a block or two away from the school and to walk the rest of the way with their children to enjoy some family time.
