Dear parents and school council members,   With the election of a new Board of Trustees comes the important task of establishing the Priorities statement that will inform decision making and use of educational funds for the remainder of their four year term. At this time, we are in the process of finalizing a set of draft priorities we wish to share with key community stakeholders for feedback and confirmation.   On Monday, FEBRUARY 3, the Board of Trustees will host a public consultation workshop to provide more information about the draft priorities and obtain feedback from various educational stakeholders. The workshop will take place at the Centre for Education (One Kingsway) from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.  Free underground parking will be available in the Centre for Education.   As a key educational partner your voice and perspective is valuable in the work to establish District Priorities. The District hopes you are able to participate on February 3. Please R.S.V.P. your attendance to Judy Abernethy at 780- 429-8110 or judy.abernethy@epsb.ca by WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29.   If you are unable to attend, but still wish to provide feedback to the Board, you may do so by participating in the http://fluidsurveys.com/s/epsb/dbpfs/ [1]. This link will be live from February 3 – 14. Thank you in advance for your participation in this feedback process. We know by working in collaboration with parents and community partners, we will be most successful in providing excellent educational opportunities for our children and youth.   Sincerely,

Ken Gibson
