DPAC Announcements & Comminique

Messages from our Coquitlam DPAC:

  • “Parenting Wisely” is a free course about managing the behaviour of elementary school children. Topics include waiting patiently until conversations or phone calls are over, morning and bedtime routines, cooperating with friends and siblings, behaving in public and schoolwork challenges. Two Parenting Wisely courses are being presented by Stan Simister and Porter Street Elementary School.

    One course starts Tuesday, April 17, 2018, from 9:30am to 11:30am. This course will run for 7 consecutive Tuesdays and ends on May 29, 2018. A second course starts Wednesday, April 18, 2018, from 9:30am to 11:30am. This course will run for 7 consecutive Wednesdays and ends on May 30, 2018. Both courses will be held at Porter Street Elementary School, 728 Porter St., Coquitlam. You need to attend the first class to take either course. Please register with the school office, between Tuesday April 3, 2018 and Friday April 13, 2018, at telephone # 604-936-4296. If you are unable to attend the first class you will not be able to take these courses, but you are welcome to register for the Parenting Wisely courses that will be offered again in October of 2018.

    Please sign in with the school office prior to going to the multipurpose room to attend the course. Participants with children under age 5 will need to make their own child minding arrangements.
