In the spring of 2014, we set up a survey for families to complete after our Family Engagement Night. I want to thank everyone who contributed. The responses were thoughtful, insightful and positive. I know our collective work will be both exciting and rewarding.

Questions and responses have now been collated into a Google Doc for your reference. 

The Google Chrome web browser is recommended for an optimal view.

Thank you again for your input, your thoughts and for your continued support of our new school.
