Welcome back! This year we will potentially explore an integrated Home & School Association and a new School Council. Both H&S and the Council’s primary role will be to create a gateway for parents to help build a better community and learning environment for our kids.
We aid in communications between parents, teachers, administrators, elected officials, neighbours, and students.
Please visit our website, www.withrowhands.com, for info on these two organisations and to sign up for our mailing list via the link provided by the end of the week. The website will be updated regularly with information about all our events. As well, look for our message board inside the Bain Ave. entrance doors.
Why might you you want communications from Withrow H&S Association / Withrow School Council?
* For information about fun upcoming events like the Welcome Back Picnic, family movie nights, the Fun Fair and the Silent Auction.
* For the opportunity to volunteer on a committee or on the executive. Engagement from families improves our school and community for all our children. Home and School’s events are organised by, and rely on, parent volunteers. We send our event sign ups via our mailing list and all the event committees are looking for people to chair or take a lead role in planning.
* To have an active voice within the school community and to remain informed about community led initiatives.
We hold a minimum of five meetings in the evening in the school library. Child care is provided and the first meeting this school year will be held on Oct. 3, 2019 at 7pm. We will look to fill the available positions on the Home and School executive panel and discuss the year ahead.
