St. Gregory the Great Catholic School - Parent Superpowers
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: St. Gregory the Great Catholic School (105 Cottonwood Drive, Blackfalds, AB T4M 0M4)

Parents are welcome to attend this special evening session with Dr. Jody Carrington on owning and using your "superpowers."

Dr. Carrington's website states, "if you own a kid (or are helping to raise one), our sole job is to teach them this thing called emotional regulation before we (eventually) launch them into this big old world. That means, sadly, that in order to do that, we have to figure out how to model for them what calm looks like (and turns out, just telling them to CALM DOWN doesn’t work for long, and neither does taking the things they love away so that they’ll eventually figure out that you want them to be kind). Expect an evening of laughter and stories, while we understand how attachment and connection to our babes and our partners will give our children the most important skill they will ever learn, how to be kind and connected people we can be proud of."

This event will take place in the gymnasium. 

Please contact Kyla Clevette for more information at 403-885-1008.

St. Joseph High School - Godspell
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Red Deer College Studio A (100 College Blvd, Red Deer)

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased through the school office.

Godspell tells the story about a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life. Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, a book by visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak) and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. Because of its small technical demands and minimal cast size, it has become a staple of theatre companies, large and small. (https://www.mtishows.com/godspell-2012)
