Building Excitement; Building Collaborative Culture

apr24To our community,

I want to thank those of you who were able to attend our Parent and Guardian Engagement evening last night. The discussions, on building collaborative culture, were rich and we were able to gather some important data for our team to consider in the coming months. A special thanks to our staff who attended and helped to facilitate the discussion groups. We also appreciated our school’s Child Care provider attending and participating in the discussions.

If you were unable to attend the night, please find our speaking notes now archived here for your reference. We have also set up an online survey for you to provide feedback on.

Thank you again for your time, your input and for your commitment on helping to build our collaborative culture as a school. We look forward to the next opportunity to dialogue at our Kindergarten orientation evening for families of children beginning school for the first time next September.

The excitement continues to build.


Mr. Collins

Parent & guardian school climate survey

Please see the following information from our board that aligns very well with our Family Engagement Evening coming up on April 24, 2014.

School Climate Survey for Parents/Guardians

Between May 20 and June 2, we will be inviting parents/guardians to participate in a school climate survey. The surveys provide the Board and our school with valuable information about how you feel about the school environment and your child’s education. The results will be used to identify areas that need to be addressed, monitor progress and plan strategies to support student achievement and well-being. We value parent input and encourage you to complete the survey. The information parents provide will be anonymous, considered confidential and kept in strict accordance with all relevant legislation. Information about how to access the survey will be sent home with students later in May.

Mr. Collins
