Dear Readers

Hello everyone,
Happy New Year! Welcome to the January issue of our newsletter! As we step into a new year, it’s a time for fresh starts and coming together to reflect on important things.
Firstly, let’s talk about the number 9-8-8. It’s an easier-to-remember phone number in Canada for people going through tough times with their feelings. Similar to 9-1-1 for emergencies, 9-8-8 is super easy to remember. If you ever need someone to talk to or some help, you can call this number. You never have to face difficult times all alone.
We’re also discussing Bell Let’s Talk Day in January, a special day to remind everyone how important our feelings are. We’ll talk about ways to be good friends, especially during the winter when some of us might feel a bit down. It’s crucial to remember, for ourselves and our friends, that caring people are always ready to help.
In this newsletter, we’ve got an articles about why learning about the Holocaust is important and being made mandatory in British Columbia.

Exploring history helps us understand why being kind and understanding matters so much in our world.
As we start the new year, we’ll also discuss setting smart goals. These are like treasure maps for what we want to achieve. They’re goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and
Time-bound. Having goals like these can make our whole year more exciting and focused.
And guess what? To keep warm in the winter, we’ve got a special treat for you: a yummy chili recipe! So, let’s stick together, stay connected, and help each other as we navigate the highs and lows
of the year ahead.
Always remember, you’re not alone, and there’s always help and hope.
