Watch your inbox for an email from the School that connects you with your  Classroom Parent Rep.
In May of 2019, Parent Council sent out a survey. Its purpose was to get a sense of what issues matter the most to our school community. Thank you to everyone who participated and who provided valuable information which will be used to shape our Parent Council goals for 2019-20.
 
Laurent has won 4 Front Row seats at our Next School Concert!                                  To see the Survey Results, Click here.

Why it's important to be involved with your Parent Council:

School parent council involvement helps you stay connected with the school and allows you to gain a broader perspective of how you can play a supportive role. You also network and make connections with other parents, business partners in your community and agencies that share a common goal of student achievement.

Interested in Getting Involved and want to make a difference? Do you have a skill or a Resource to Share?
Here are three (3) ways you can make it happen.

Classroom Parent Rep
 
1. Liaise with the classroom teacher.
2. Provide communication to the classroom about items covered in the Parent Council Meetings. ( a kit is provided to all parents).
Attendance at Parent Council Meetings

This is your opportunity to be an advocate for your child and their learning environment.
It gives you a chance to be involved in the discussions that make your school a better place.

Interview with your Parent Council Chair

Tara Ritchie

How long have you been a member of the Neighbourhood Community?

Since January 2008, just over 11 years.  This is me in my basement office.

Tell us about your background.

Before I became a parent, I worked in Professional services and was a tech resource for the Sales team. When they started to get blank stares on their faces, that is when I stepped in and took over the meeting. Since then, I've done a variety of things but currently, I run my own gig helping other businesses develop their brand and strategy.
 

Why did you become the Chair for Parent Council?

I ran the pizza lunch program for 2 years at the school and although that was fun, I felt it was time to move on. This will be a great year.

What is something that most people don't know about you?

I'm an introvert (mostly) and I was so nervous for the first council meeting this year, I sprayed on hairspray instead of deodorant. It was a Sticky night.

Share one goal you have as Parent Council Chair for this school year.
