School Council Meetings – Free Child Minding Initiative Pilot Project!

In an effort to make it easier for the parent community to attend our School Council meetings, Council will be initiating a free child minding pilot project for our upcoming Council meetings! 

The children will be supervised by a trained child care professional who is a school board employee, already working at our school, to  be assisted by high school student/parent volunteers.  The children will be supervised in the extended day program (EDP) room , which is right across from the gym, and is fully equipped for children from the ages of JK to grade 6.  Parents who are attending the meetings, can bring their children to the EDP room, for 6:30 p.m., to 8:30 p.m., which is the time of the meetings.  Please note that the child minding is only available for parents who are in attendance at the meetings, and on site at the school.  Children can be from the ages of junior kindergarden to grade 6. Please email Council in advance of the meeting date to advise as to the number and ages of the children    

Free child minding will be offered for the following meetings:

November 11, 2014, December 9, 2014, January 13, 2015, February 10, 2015, 6:30 p.m., to 8:30 p.m., in the staff room.

            We encourage and welcome all parents to attend our meetings, to provide us with their input and ideas.  It is a wonderful way to be an active and valuable part of the Meadowlands School Community!

Recess Bin Drive

Council is doing a “Recess Bin Drive” for gently used or new donations of sports equipment or outdoor play items that the children can enjoy during recess. Items we are looking for include: soccer balls, basketballs, skipping ropes, chalk, tennis balls, bouncy balls, frisbees, tennis-badminton sets, sand toys, etc.  Items that will keep our children active and entertained at recess! Your donations can be dropped off at the Office with a note attached for School Council. Thanks so much for all your kind and generous support!
