Thanks to Council and Principal Kope for allowing me to attend.   Congrats to new Chair Judy and the many new Council members. Principal Kope and her team presented on a number of topics:

  • new flexible seating arrangements for the Grade 2 classes to promote cognitive health and different learning styles for different activities
  • a new focus on writing, with samples to illustrate a grade by grade writing continuum
  • Bill 1 school fees
  • Student Council panda day
  • a very interesting discussion and feedback session reviewing 4 ideas raised by parents: – promoting healthy living, community garden, community service, and fun lunch

I appreciated the opportunity to present on the role of the Trustee, illustrated by the decisions from the September 12 Board meeting.
