It is National Volunteer Appreciation Week, so I’d like to take a moment to say THANK YOU to the many volunteers who support Home and School initiatives throughout the year. Volunteering is a very rewarding experience, and we do appreciate the help that many of our parents provide to ensure the success of our events and support of the school community. If you want to help, but are not sure about the commitments involved, please get in touch with us and we can give you an idea.
The next opportunity to roll up your sleeves is coming soon! For those of you with a green thumb, we are planning a Spring Clean-Up at the school for families to come out and help tidy up, spruce up the beds, trim the trees, and give the grounds some TLC. The tentative date is May 28 in the morning.
The Literacy Event for parents of children in grades 3-6 will be held on April 19th. If you have not received a registration form, please contact the school ASAP. As with the event for the early grades, there will be a movie playing for any children who attend.
The PEI Home and School Federation Annual General Meeting will be held this Saturday morning in Charlottetown. If you would like to attend, please contact a member of the executive ASAP.
A yearbook is in the works and will be available for purchase toward the end of the school year. If you have taken any photos at school events that you would like to share for possible inclusion, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
Our next Home and School Meeting will be held on May 10th at 6:30 in the staff room. All parents are welcome to attend as we discuss many important issues for the children of West Royalty. A few important discussion items from the recent meeting include:
- There is an executive position available for the coming school year, and we will be going through the nomination process soon.
- For the upcoming school year, there will be a parent involved in the schools Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee.
- An ad hoc committee is being formed to plan and oversee the development of the K-1 playground into the future. If you are interested in participating, contact Krystal Mayne.
If any of these interest you, please let us know.
