Hello all! My name is Diane and I am very happy to be returning as your School Council Chair this year! Let me introduce the rest of the team: Wendy and Kora will be sharing the position of Secretary, Leah is the Treasurer and Tamara is Vice-Chair. I invite you to meet your council team next meeting which will be held October 10th at 7PM in the learning commons. We will have coffee ready for you!!
I just wanted to share with you a link (below) which explains what School Council is all about. This dedicated group of parents, staff, administrators, trustee and invited guests, are a very important part of the learning team in your child(ren) school life. School Council is one of the most effective way to be involved in the decisions making that affect our student’s learning by being part of an advisory team to the Principal, Assistant Principle and school board.
Every month we hear from our School Trustee Norma Lang. She shares with us what is happening behind the scene in the learning world and keeps us up to date.
And let’s be honest it some of the parents admit it’s a night off!!! Whatever your reasons are Kathryn School Council is inclusive and welcomes everyone that want to be involved in their kid’s education.
A survey is being sent to you and I would invite you all to please take a moment to fill it out - there are only 9 questions and we would really appreciate your feedback to help us move forward.
Have a great school year and see you all October 10th.
Diane Courchesne :)
