Weekly Message #3-28

images-1Thank you to everyone who participated in a very intense School Planning Day on Friday.  We have made an excellent start on forming a meaningful plan for next year.  Your feedback on our LIF (Learning Improvement Fund) application will help me to draft up a proposal for our school.  Finally, we have started the task of setting a calendar for next year.  As discussed, the following will be coming your way asap:

  • A survey regarding the setting of the 5 pro-d / 1 planning day for 2013/14
  • proposed wording for our school plan literacy goal and strategies
  • proposed strategies for addressing the aboriginal goal we have agreed to
  • proposed application for LIF based on your input and advice from the district office
  • sign up sheet for those interested in the Truth and Reconciliation project

Each of these requests for information will be very important to making sure that our School Plan, calendar and funding proposal reflect the needs as identified by our staff.  I will apologize ahead of time for the need for speedy feedback in order to meet district timelines.  I will invite you to meet as needed for clarification or further discussion.
