Our first GENERAL MEETING of the year has been schedule for WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 28, 2015 at the Education Services Centre at 7 pm.  Petra Willemse from Seycove's Performance Learning Program is presenting on TECHNOLOGY.  An exciting presentation with teachers and students on Leveraging Technology to Reach All Learners.

The NEW CURRICULUM continues to be a major topic of discussion and we are looking at ways to provide information and answer some of the questions parents may have.  Stay tuned and as we get more information or find links that offer reliable and useful information for parents, we will post them here.

We are also looking at updating our website and are hopeful that we will be able to launch it by the end of October.  Until then, we are compiling resources to help make it great.  Our new Communications Representative Carol Sartor is working away at an even more user-friendly version.

There are a number of upcoming dates in October that may be of interest:
The Carson Graham Family of Schools is presenting Sharon Selby on Emotional Resiliency on Wednesday October 7 at Queen Mary 7-830pm  More information can be found HERE:

For October at the School District, the Board of Education Standing Committee is happening on Tuesday October 13, 7 pm at the Education Services Centre and is open to the public.  The PUBLIC Board meeting is happening on Tuesday October 20, 7pm, also at the Education Services Centre

Of course Thanksgiving is Monday October 12 and there is a Province Wide non-instructional day planned for Friday October 23.
