Principal's Post

Dear Parents,

At the HSA meeting this week, Mike McLeod gave a fantastic presentation on ADHD and Executive Functioning. I encourage all parents to watch this video. He discusses the importance of children learning executive function skills and how this can lead to life long benefits. He helped us understand the connection between language, ADHD, and reciprocal parenting. Please go to the video below to watch the presentation in its entirety.

I extend my gratitude and thanks to everyone (parents, HSA, faculty) who made Catholic Schools Week a success! It was a great celebration!

Have a lovely weekend.
