Interim Report Cards, Book Fair and Parent -Student-Teacher Interviews

Thank you to School council for funding a very informative parent information evening on Social Network Safety Wednesday night with Paul Davis.  We all went home and changed our passwords! Paul shared valuable advise on how to open the conversations with our children about their on line presence and the long term implications for our lives based on our digital footprints. Some safety tips will soon be posted on the parent page of our website.

It is hard to believe that the first mark update will be ready for parents to view on Home Logic on October 15-18, 2013. Our first parent-student-teacher interview and Book Fair will be held on October 21 and 24. Thanks to our School Council, we will be using the Conference Manager Software to book interviews with your teachers. Conference Manager booking time opens at 2:00 PM on October 16, 2013. It is recommended that you book 10 minutes (two consecutive 5 minute sessions) with core teachers and 5 minutes with complementary teachers. Parents should leave 5 minutes of travel time between interviews. A handout will be coming home with information on how to log onto Home Logic and Conference Manager. Instructions also appear on our blog.
