Program schedule for September 

Here are some activities you can participate in this month.

Journaling

Have you ever tried journaling? It is a great way to practice mindfulness but it can be difficult to know how to start and to know what to write about. We will be sharing new new journaling prompts and questions on our Instagram @SpruceGroveFCSSYouth.

For more idea you can also check out this list of journaling prompts we created!

Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day is September 30. On this day we invite you to wear an orange shirt to commemorate the residential school experience. #EveryChildMatters

"On this day of September 30, we call upon humanity to listen with open ears to the stories of survivors and their families, and to remember those that didn't make it." - Orange Shirt Day Society 

We encourage you to learn more about Orange Shirt Day by reading Phyllis' Story: The Original Orange Shirt
