Welcome (back) to everyone and we hope all the kids had a great first week of school!
For those new to the school, this blog, along with the twitter account @EarlHaigCouncil, Facebook page and Earl Haig School Calendar are run by volunteer efforts of the School Council. Our Facebook page is updated with the most frequency but also be sure to sign up to receive our blog posts in your email inbox so that you never miss a thing.
It was great to see so many of you out at our coffee meet and greet on the first day of school. We are so sorry we ran out of coffee but we hope we at least helped some of you caffeinate properly for your morning!
School Council: We’d love to have you join us!
If you’re not familiar with the School Council, we are the parent/caregiver group that organizes and runs events throughout the year to bolster community spirit and raise funds. We meet most months (skipping December and March) with the administration and teacher representatives to discuss issues like facilities, extra-curricular clubs/teams, student concerns, special events, and academic issues.
You don’t need to be on the council to attend and everyone is welcome! (Childcare is provided in the Kindergarten room)
Our first school council meeting is taking place on (NEW DATE!) Thursday, September 20th, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM in the Music Room and we look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting newcomers. It’s a big night, as we will be holding elections for the 2018-2019 School Council. If you are interested in joining the executive team, take a look to see what positions we have. If you’re not interested in joining the executive, you are absolutely still welcome to join our meetings each month and there are volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
Lastly, we’ve added a new page on the blog for menus for our fantastic hot lunch and snack program. Be careful, though – because looking at these menus for too long is almost guaranteed to make your stomach rumble. Menus will be updated as they are made available.
** Please note, occasionally there are menu substitutions due to circumstances beyond control.
Looking forward to seeing many of you at our meeting on September 20th as we kick off another great year at Earl Haig P.S.!
