Chimera Time 

After lunch every day, the Grade 5 Students have a class period called "Chimera Time".  In this period students cover some outcomes of the health curriculum related to wellness and relationships.  In November, the students took an in-depth look at bullying.  There is still a lot of confusion about what is and is not bullying.  This chart helps clarify the difference.

For more information on how Bullying and inappropriate behaviour is addressed at DMC please check out our link on our school website: https://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/drmarthacohen/culture-environment/conduct/behaviour/pages/default.aspx
