Thanks to Co-Chairs Shelley and Selby, rest of Council, and Principal Allen for the opportunity to participate in tonight’s meeting.  I enjoyed learning about the proposed Grade 6 leadership camp to assist the transition to junior high, and the mindfulness initiative.  This research based initiative is designed to help all students to focus, self regulate their behavior and increase empathy.  I was pleased to learn that the traffic safety situation has improved with investments by the City of Edmonton, although more work is needed.
