Wear Purple Day in February is to help raise awareness of youth mental health.  We will be collecting a loonie on Friday - Wear Purple!!!!  At school we will focus on our emotions and how important it is to speak with someone to share our emotions.  We will review the zones of regulation so be sure to ask your child what that is and how they are feeling . We want our students to recognize this in themselves and even in their friends, and be able to identify what steps they could take when they or someone else is feeling that way.  Strategies such as breathing techniques, self talk, resting, and seeking out someone to speak with, will all be reviewed.   All monies collected will be donated to DIFD.
