Welcome – Christie Brown, Co-chair  

Very short parent survey – Christie Brown, Co-chair 

  • Wanted to capture parents’/students’ top 3 favourite activities/events at school so we can maybe focus on continuing those events and experiences. 
  • Thinking of the best way, if it’s better to list the names of the actual events or have free form fields or a combination of both? 
  • We’re hoping, especially, to capture the students in the higher grades since they’ve been around the longest. 
  • Will also share it with the list of parent volunteers. 
  • Jane will put it into Google Forms and share it with the council to provide feedback and determine final content before it gets shared with the wider community.

  • Family Fun Night scheduled for June 22, 2023. Timing TBD. 
  • Will put a call out for volunteers and sub-committees.

  • Clothing Exchange. Drop off clothes at school on Friday, April 21, and then have it on Saturday, April 22 at the King George School Gym.
