Thanks to Melaine and the rest of Council, Principal Kroeker and Assistant Principal Brooks for the opportunity to attend the meetings last night.

Curriculum Coordinator Shannon Harwood provided an excellent presentation for parents in assisting their children with reading at home, using leveled literacy approaches and materials.

Following the literacy presentation, I appreciated participating in the School Council meeting.  Similar to the Hillcrest meeting last week, we had a chance to discuss the use of SchoolZone for Board and trustee communications.  I appreciate the excellent feedback, including:

– when parents log in to SchoolZone, use a pop-up alert that new info is available

– publicize in the newsletter as well

– keep to a few, brief questions each time

– ensure the parent can answer directly without having to follow any links

Here’s a photo of Ms. Harwood presenting to parents:
