Workshop For Parents - Brain Development

Tuesday, May 10, 2016
The Science of the Developing Brain

Presented by: Dr. Maria Phelps, School Psychologist, Educational Support Services, St. James-Assiniboia School Division

In recent years, our understanding of the brain in children and teens has been helped through the use of brain-imaging technology. This research can help parents understand why kids behave the way they do, as well as how best to help children with ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, and a Learning Disability.

Workshops will be held from 6 – 8 p.m. at Educational Support Services – Jameswood School, 1 Braintree Crescent (off Olive & Ness).  Free pizza supper will be offered from 6:00 - 6:30 p.m. and session will take place from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.  To register, please call Arlie Williams-Taylor at 885-9555 or email

"Fake" Mole Day at SJCI

SJCI Chemistry 30S students celebrated "fake" mole day just before Spring Break. 

Mole day is typically celebrated on October 23rd between 6:02 am and 6:02 pm in honour of Avogadro's number 6.02x10^23 which is called the mole. 

In general, one mole of any substance contains Avogadro's Number of molecules 
or atoms of that substance.
