School council meeting - Oct 23, 2017
I cannot believe that summer is over, it feels like it just begun! I hope that everyone had an enjoyable summer.
I remember being a little kid and being so excited to pack my backpack with all my new school supplies. I know my little man is excited and ready to be back with his friends. I am truly excited for the 2017-2018 school year, I am looking forward to see what new and exciting things are coming our way!
Your School Council team’s main goal is to advise and work with our Principal Cathy Cameron and Assistant Principal Kristie McCullough in providing the best educational experiences for our children. We invite you to be a part of this!
The School Council Information and sign up sheets are posted just outside the office. As always, School Council is looking for volunteers to join us for the new school year. I invite you to come out and join our first School Council meeting of the year on Monday, September 11 at 7:00 in the staffroom at the school. We encourage everyone to attend, learn a little about what our School Council does and to be an extra voice in the education of your child. Some of the committees that we have include but are not limited to; Social Justice, Friendship Meal, Family Fun Night and Carnival. These committees are run by parent volunteers that help make decisions on what should happen at/for these events.
As always, we will be fundraising this year. The major fundraiser this year will be QSP magazine sales. The majority of money that is raised goes to field trips so that our children are not only getting curriculum related learning within the classroom but are connecting this learning to real life experiences as well.
I am saddened to say that our hot lunch program is in desperate need of volunteers. Last year, we operated with just two or three parents for the entire year and there were times that it appeared that we would have no help. Our hot lunch program takes place on Mondays and help is needed from 12:15-1:00 pm. We ask that if you are available to help out on Mondays to let the committee members know or let Mrs. Brown at the front desk know and we will contact you. We are currently continuing with the hot lunch program until December. If we do not get more volunteer support for this activity, we may not be able to continue with it in the new year.
Thank you to everyone who made the Meet the Staff morning on the first day of school a resounding success.
