PTA IS SEEKING A FEW DEDICATED PARENTS
Calling all parents and caregivers!! The PTA’s two year term is finishing this year and all positions are open!!
Joining the PTA is a great way to get involved with the school and help build our community. Anyone interested- just click on the form and let us know. We will be gathering interest over the next few weeks and will introduce the new board at the last PTA meeting of the year in June.
Community Engagement Parent Meetings
I've had the opportunity to have some great conversations with parents at my LISTEN AND LEARN meetings these last couple of weeks. Since my grade 4/5 meeting was cancelled due to a snow day, I am rescheduling that meeting to next Tuesday.
We discovered at our last meeting that setting the meeting up to be virtual led to a great increase in attendance. While I always prefer to meet in person whenever possible, since I'm hearing that it's easier for parents to attend a Zoom, I'm going to switch the format to a virtual meeting.
CLICK HERE for the Zoom link to attend the Grades 4/5 - Tuesday, March 21 @ 5pm virtually.
