Speaker for Parents: On Thursday, June 9 we are excited to announce Dona Matthews, author of Beyond Intelligence and Being Smart about Gifted Intelligence will be at the school on to discuss “Growth mindset, ways parents can support a growth mindset in their kids, helping them approach math more positively, enjoy it more and do it better; blowing up myths that some kids are just good at math, and some just aren’t”. Thanks to the Ministry of Education’s Parents Reaching Out grant for enabling the School Council t0 arrange this evening. For more information on Dona Matthews check out her website. The talk will be in the evening (time still to be determined.) Free childcare will be provided.

The Bottle Drive scheduled for May 28 has been postponed until the 2016-17 academic year. Seems a national cancer support agency has the same idea we did about collecting empties after the May long weekend and will be holding their bottle drive that weekend, as they have for the past 10 years. Thank you to those who had volunteered to staff the table or had been saving their empties.

FDK Open House – June 14
Staff appreciation luncheon, June 16, potluck donations and volunteer servers sought, email email@example.com
