Thanks to Co-Chairs Shelley and Selby, the rest of Council, Principal Allen and Assistant Principals Simmons and Hall for the opportunity to participate in tonight’s Council meeting. I was delighted with the very positive comments from Council for newly arrived Principal Allen, and was able to witness his engagement in seeking parental views about traffic safety issues, congestion due to the siting of portables, tracking of mud, student led conferences and rules around Halloween imagery. I am interested in learning about the paired reading program. I was pleased to hear the School’s goals for 2015-2016.

Once again, I appreciated parental and staff feedback about the possible use of SchoolZone for trustee/ Board communication with parents.  There have been common themes raised in the various council meetings:

– frequency should be determined by need

– don’t undermine staff efforts to economize the number of notifications
