Classroom Rep Coordinator

CLASSROOM REPS:  In an effort to improve communication among students, parents, and staff we are looking for a parent representative from each classroom to attend the monthly School Council meetings. the role of a Classroom Rep is to help us be informed on classroom issues and to be another way of sharing information back to the parents of their respected classroom.  An example of this would be reporting back about how a hot lunch was received, or sharing suggestions or questions and students on a particular topic.  If you are interested filling this role let us know.

Green Space Improvement Project: NEW COURTYARD INSTALLATION

Another piece of the courtyard design plan has been installed. The mud kitchen is in and ready for use. We owe a big thank you to Ricki Solamillo (Lisa Solamillo's husband), and Ricki's father for building the units for us. This new addition to the courtyard will expand the natural and creative experience of the students and provide an aspect of play that was missing from our traditional playground design. 

Ask your child about it this week and remind them the importance of respecting our spaces by using them in a kind and courteous manner.

GREEN SPACE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT  UPDATE

Over summer break our school completed a big landscaping project. The front triangle bed is looking fresh and new with thanks to the skilled work of The Landscaping Company. This project was supported primarily by Ecole Parc families who participated in fundraisers over the past two years. The cost of the tree, which is a Prairie Spire Green Ash, was sponsored by Dennis Stelmack of the Grow Your Own Project, and the cost to plant it was sponsored by The Landscaping Company. Thank you to everyone who made this project possible. It truly takes a community! 

To give our new tree and plants the best chance of survival we ask that students do not walk through the new bed. We will be watering the tree and plants on a regular basis and look forward to watching them grow.
