Neighbours and friends,
The first Toronto-Danforth Ward Council meeting of the 2015/2016 school year will be held on Monday October 5 from 7-9 pm at Bruce Junior Public School (51 Larchmount Avenue).
This meeting’s agenda highlights include:
- Roundtable Discussion: “Your Lightbulb Moment”–Share one of your school community’s best ideas and get inspired by others
- Reports from the Trustee, Superintendent and Committee Reps
- Next Meetings: Tues Nov 3 from 7-9 at Blake/EAST, Thurs Dec 3 from 7-9 at a location to be confirmed
- Election for FSLAC alternate representative
At Ward Council meetings, parent representatives discuss issues of common concern with the local Trustee, and the Trustee keeps parents informed about matters under consideration by the Board and gets their feedback.
Your school may have already selected one or two parent volunteers to represent the school at Ward Council meetings. Regardless, I invite you to please come and join the discussion — the meetings are open to all who want to attend. Child-minding will be provided and if you need translation services in order to participate, please email Maxeen.Paabo@tdsb.on.ca.
Alternate Representative for French as a Second Language Advisory Committee
An alternate representative is needed on the French as a Second Language Advisory Committee. More details about the position, committee and meeting dates can be found here and the election will take place at the October 5 Ward Council Meeting. If you are interested or have questions, please send me an email at Jennifer.Story@tdsb.on.ca.
Thank you, and I hope to see you there.
As always, if you have any questions, concerns or ideas to share, don’t hesitate to contact me.
All my best,
Trustee, Toronto District School Board
Ward 15 Toronto-Danforth
