Recap of Meetings

Tonight's meetings of the McKenzie Towne School Council and Parent Association were lively and well attended.  Thank you to all those that came.  Unfortunately, Art Johnston was not able to attend the meeting.  He did forward responses he had received from the Minister of Education, David Hancock's office to some questions we had regarding the capacity issue, which we invite you to read.   In addition, we received a response from the CBE's Superintendent of Facilities & Environmental Services, which you can view by clicking here.  The information we have received poses additional questions and a need for further understanding.  To that end, Mr. Johnston has invited some parents to attend a meeting at his office on Friday June 3rd.  We encourage parents to submit their questions for Mr.  Johnston (see details on left column).  For background information, you can read the earlier post.  We will plan a further communication to parents once that meeting has taken place.

In other business of the Council, Sherri reminded everyone that the executive terms will be up at September's AGM.  If you have an interest in serving in an executive role, please approach Sherri or one of the other members to find out more information.  Mrs. Pollock and Ms. Anderson provided us with an update regarding the grade one and kindergarten classes and Annette shared the Leadership report, including a thoughtful discussion with parents about the values and vision of our school. 

During the Parent Association meeting, a Fun Lunch was announced for June 21st.  Plans include pizza, drink and dessert for a cost of $4/child.  Stay tuned for further details coming soon.  Our casino dates were announced as November 15 and 16th at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino.  We will be looking for volunteers to work shifts over the two days.  More information including volunteer requests will be coming in the near future.  Sean T continues to make progress in terms of the surplus playground funds and hopes to be able to provide another update at the next meeting.

Our next and final meeting of the school year will be on Thursday June 23rd, beginning at 6:30 pm.  We hope to see everyone there.
