Last night, we had our first school council meeting. I thank everyone who was able to attend for their partnership with our school.
At our council meeting we determined the following positions:
Co-Chairs – Ms. Hunter and Mr. Mitchell
Secretary – Ms. Mackey
Co Treasurers – Ms. Pogue and Ms. Lewis
Community member – Ms. Howard
Additionally, we have a number of members at large who will form the voting members of council this year.
As always, you do not need to be on the executive in order to attend council meetings. All families are welcome throughout the year.
Our council has set the following dates for this year’s meetings:
- Thursday October 20, 2016
- Thursday November 17, 2016
- Thursday December 15, 2016
- Thursday January 26, 2017
- Thursday February 16, 2017
- Thursday March 23, 2017
- Thursday April 27, 2017
- Thursday May 25, 2017
- Thursday June 15, 2017
Our meetings will take place in our Discovery Hub located in room 206. An accessible elevator is available should you require one at any point. Child care will be available for future meetings as well. Minutes from meetings are approved at the following meeting so watch for this month’s minutes in October on our main school website. To register you need your child’s student number that was sent home on the previous handouts on the system. If you have misplaced those notices, another notice will be available at meet the teacher night. If your child has memorized their computer login this is also their student number.
Council is also planning a Movie Night for Thursday October 27, 2016. More details will be forthcoming.
Our Hot Lunch Program will also start soon. Key to our program this year will be ensuring families have registered for School Cash Online. The new payment system will allow you to purchase school related items online. We are hoping to have everyone registered by our Meet the Staff event next Wednesday. Please see the flyer for more information: School Cash Online Parent Register.
We will have computers available at our school next Wednesday if you need help registering for this payment system.
