2012 AGM Meeting Notes for MTSC / MTSPA

The MTSC and MTSPA held their annual AGM last night. This is the meeting where we plan and discuss the initiatives for the year.  In the School Council we were introduced to the new Music Teacher Mrs. Heather Bourgeois.  She inspired us with her ideas for the kids at the school - not just in her music class. Our kids and by association, the parents, are going to really grow to understand music and it's components.  She also gave a detailed list of instruments she would like the Parent Council to help purchase this year.

During the School Council we filled the 3 open positions. Thank you to Linda B and Lacey S for officially filling the positions of Volunteer Co-coordinators.  Thank you to Jen R. for taking on the position of Vice Chair recently left open by Tiffany V. who moved.  You are all welcome additions to the Council.

MTS has fewer kids than was projected so has re-invited the families that were surplussed to Douglas Dale School to return.  Good news is MTS has been able to maintain their class sizes to between 17-21 kids. This is well below the average for other schools.

In the Parent Council, the budget projections for the upcoming year were outlined and approved.  The Fundraising Committee presented their family events for the year, as well as, fundraising goals.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the meeting. Our future meeting dates for the upcoming year have been set as follows: Oct 29, Nov 26, Dec 10, Jan 28, Feb25, Mar 18, Apr 29, May 27 and June 17.  The School Council meets from 6:30-7:30 and the Parent Council meets right after at 7:30-8:30.

Every parent with a child attending MTS is a member of the Council (no special invite or position required) so come see how you can make a difference there.  Look forward to seeing you in October.
