Thanks to everyone who attended our community information evening last Monday. For those of you who weren’t able to be there, we began the evening with a presentation from our Director of Finance and Operations, Dale Willetts. Dale overviewed the school’s financial health and shared with us how the school is operating sustainably and moving towards its strategic financial goals.
We also reviewed some of the data from last October’s parent survey. Highlights are included in this brief overview. ISM, the professional organisation who conducted our survey, was extremely complimentary about our community and the survey results point to our many strengths. The survey also helps us identify and think about our areas for growth.
We’ll be following up on the survey in a number of ways, including our Grade Level Community Evenings. At these evenings, now in their fourth year, I facilitate conversations around specific questions with parents from a particular grade level over a potluck dinner. The Principals attend these evenings as well and are eager to speak with you and answer your questions. We hold about 4-5 of these evenings in a 12-month period, usually in PK1/PK2 and Grades 3, 5, 6 and 9/10. Dates for the next community evenings will be announced shortly.
Not every class has a Grade Level Community Evening every year. But my door is always open, potluck dinner or not! Please don’t hesitate to schedule a time with firstname.lastname@example.org to see me with any questions or concerns. And good news stories also always welcome!
