Preparing for Mental Wellness this Holiday

 Dear Elmdale Families:

I came across this page online and thought it was worth sharing:

Here is the link for a printable copy:

The source is Children's Mental Health Ontario.  Their website has a lot of good resources, including for helping your family deal with the stressors of the Covid-19 pandemic:

In a recent zoom conversation with some Elmdale parents, one of them mentioned she'd shared the following saying with her kids:

                      "Christmas is not about presents, it's about being present."  

I thought this was a perfect reminder, especially for this unique Christmas season.  

As always, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns about your child's well-being. 

Wishing you all good moments of presence with your families this year and feelings of hope for the new year.
