The McKenzie Towne School Council and Parent Association meetings are Monday February 28th, beginning at 6:30 pm at the school.  These meetings are a great way to meet other parents, get informed about what is happening in your child's school, ask questions and be part of the decision making process.  Join us a few minutes beforehand for an informal meet and greet. 

In the Council meeting, we will be joined by Mrs. Foster and Mrs. Steedman for the Teacher's Report and Mrs. Sarginson and Mr. Murphy will provide a leadership report, which is always informative.  Our topics of the month are MTS Traditions and Teaming Up 4 Health.  During the Parent Association meeting, we will hear from the Fun Lunch committee and will be discussing and likely making some spending decisions.

Please join us on Monday evening.  Each meeting is expected to run approximately one hour in length.  You can print the agendas for each meeting here and here.  Please bring a copy along, and we hope to see you on Monday evening for one or both meetings.
