       January 16, 2013

    1. Context/Background

    2. Objectives

    3. Implementation Plan

    4. Next Steps

   On January 7th, we met with Ms. Richards, Mr. Sidial and Mme. Tennant regarding
    the Community Initiative Pillar. We also had the opportunity to meet Mr. Azim who is
    the settlement worker that will be working at the school.

   We had a very productive discussion which we would like to discuss further at this
    school council meeting today.

   Before we share the highlights of some of the ideas we discussed, let us revisit the
    Objective of this Community Initiative Pillar


                     Boost Parent

      parents part                  Collaborate
      of the                          with the
      Solution                      Community     11
    Action Plan
1. Invitation/Information Nights:

    Broken out into 3 separate nights for the following subgroups; Kindergarten, Grades 1 to 3 and
     Grade 4 to 5

    The premise is to have 4 relevant issues for each of the 3 nights of interest to that particular group of
     parents and hold informal group discussions in separate areas of the school

    Samples of issues could include: Curriculum, Getting Involved (i.e volunteering), Solving Problems,
     Understanding Report Cards

    Parents would receive an invitation letter from the school for this event

    Targeting would-be parents that are new to the community, new to the school system and parents that
     would like to make connections in the community.
    Action Plan
2. Kindergarten Program
   Currently the school holds a kindergarten information night focused on
    “logistics”. Judy and Daryl are already taking on an initiative to begin a
    “program” night to discuss the curriculum and Kindergarten learning.
3. Email / Website / SynerVoice Message
   Consideration to using the SynerVoice phone message system for communicating
    certain information to parents
   To explore with Board the email privacy considerations and other issues with a
    group distribution list
   Website is continually being used by the school as a tool to communicate with
4. School BBQ
   Would need teachers involvement as this is a big initiative after school hours,   13
    therefore to consider at a later point.
Next Steps

   Set up a subcommittee meeting – tentatively planned for Jan 22nd at 9AM –
    to invite any interested parents to explore the above initiative [Invitation
    Nights] further and relevant issues to be discussed.
