Our School Council Meeting will be held this Tuesday, February 12th in the school library starting at 6:30pm. We have some upcoming events to discuss including our parenting workshop on Parenting Truths being held this month (more information following) and Parents for Diversity will be putting on a workshop entitled “Addressing Anti-Black Racism in Schools” (register: www.parentsfordiversity.com).
Agenda items such as Committee reports, fundraising events and updates from the Principal will be presented. We would also like to have a discussion about the 3 motions that OCASC (OCDSB’s assembly of school councils) is voting on to submit to the school board regarding the old/new health and physical education curriculum in Ontario and how we can have views of the WAPS community heard.
NOTE: All parents and community members are welcome to add items to the agenda by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by adding them to the ‘Chalk it Up’ section at the meeting. If you have any barriers to attending this meeting (ex. transportation, childcare…) please contact the chair at email@example.com, so that we can find ways to support your attendance at the meeting.
