ᑕᑕᐊᐧᐤ -- Tatawaw! -- Welcome!

Welcome to Maskwacîs Education School Commission's online counselling resources site. We have a weekly blog here as well as a number of resources that might help you and your children over the coming weeks. While we really miss all the children in our schools, we hope that this will be a way for us to stay in touch in some way. If you are looking for ways to to talk to kids about COVID-19, click here for more info. Please see the crisis response info below. There are other links on the side, for the different pages and resources. We will continue to add to each page as we get new information so check back every once in a while! Stay safe, healthy, and happy!
