Parent Council Minutes, May 30th

St. Andrew’s Minutes May 30th^J 2018

Dear Parents,

 Attached are the draft minutes from our last St. Andrew’s Parent Council meeting for this school year – May 30, 2018.  The next meeting is September 26, 2018.  We will hold Parent Council elections on this date.  Consider participating as a member of the Council, a voice during the meetings, or volunteer during events.

Thank you also for your support with the fundraising events – direct donation, pizza lunches, popcorn days, bake sales, and SPC card sales.  The funds raised enhanced curriculum and school experiences for our children – the Robotics Club, the PhysEd dance program, the music program, and the grade 8 and 9 graduations.  More cafeteria benches, supplies for the school garden, and art supplies for a school sculpture were purchased.

 Happy summer!

 Denise Vavaroutsos

Chair, St. Andrew’s JHS Parent Council

Cuts for Carley cancer fundraiser: Wednesday at 8:15a

Our annual Cuts for Carley has its final event of the year on Wednesday morning.  We’ll be gathering in the caf at 8:15am to watch as a group of students and Ms. Wong all cut their ponytails to be donated towards wigs for cancer patients.  Family members of the students donating their hair are welcome to attend.  Students and community members who cut and donated their hair separately this year are also invited to attend.

Later in the day during lunch, Mr. Della-Schiava will have his head shaved by a student.

All donations this year are being put towards Bladder Cancer research.  Donations can still be made online at http://convio.cancer.ca/goto/SAJHcuts2018

Trustee Gershon’s Community Coffee Meeting, June 21st @ 9:15 a.m.

Hi Everyone,

It seems that the chart we shared earlier this week, comparing the major provincial party positions on education and how they stand next to Ontario Public School Boards’ Association’s priorities, has since been updated. This means the link shared in the original email is, unfortunately, no longer working. Please find the new link below.

You can find that document, and other information about the upcoming provincial election on OPSBA’s webpage.

A reminder that our last Community Coffee with Gerri will be Thursday June 21 at 9:15 am at Longo’s on Laird (on the second floor). I am looking forward to seeing you all again. In the meanwhile, have a great weekend and once again don’t forget to vote in the provincial elections on June 7th!

______________________________________________________________________________________

I apologise if our tentative meeting dates have had to change for a variety of reasons. Our last get together will be Thursday June 21 at 9:15 am at a Community Coffee with Gerri at Longo’s on Laird (on the second floor). I am looking forward to seeing you all again. Everyone is welcome- and bring a friend.  Again there will be a report from the Board however, there is no specific agenda- but rather an opportunity to share ideas, concerns and news about our neighbourhood schools. You will receive an invitation and reminder at the end of next week.

In the meanwhile, a reminder to vote in the provincial elections on June 7th. The Ontario Public School Board has put together a chart comparing the major party positions on education and how they stand next to OPSBA’s priorities. You can view it via the link below.
