Thanks to Chair Lis, the rest of Council, and Principal Burns for the warm welcome and for the opportunity to provide an update.  I appreciated hearing Principal Burns comprehensive report, and the discussion about implementing the See Saw account and SchoolInterviews.ca. Despite a very cold night, Council was out in force and planning numerous school events.  Nice to see the strong bonds of friendship nurtured by serving together on Council.

Thanks to Chair Jackie, the rest of Council, and Principal McKeown for allowing me to participate.  I appreciated hearing about the traffic safety issues and initiatives, and I promise to follow-up to see if the City of Edmonton has designated Callingwood School for additional focus.

Day 2 of “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays” was excellent, with several of the same songs now performed by Grades 3-6.  A couple of fantastic solo performances, and some very nice videos of students explaining what they best like about their favorite holiday.  Well done!

Jingle Bell Jukebox, the Flipside, was a nice continuation of the theme from last week’s Division 1 concert.  I really enjoyed the handbells, the Body Percussion and the Bucket Drumming.
