Welcome letter 2017

Dear Meadowlands Community,

I am pleased to introduce you to our new school council.

My name is Colleen​ ​Hartigan-Tan​ ​and I am your new chair. I have 2 children who attend this great school and have had nothing but positive experiences with the staff and
community. I work at CHEO and I am passionate about kids. I had the pleasure of being part of council last year and enjoyed being able to make a difference in the learning experiences of all the children.

My name is Heather​ ​Mugford​ ​and I will be your vice chair for this school year. I have one daughter who attends Meadowlands and for that reason I have been an active member of parent council for the last 3 years.

As council treasurer for the coming year I will be ensuring all of your thoughtful donations are accounted for and appropriately distributed to enhance your child’s learning environment. I’ve been involved with Meadowlands school council for 5 years in different capacities, this is my first time being part of the executive. I’m really looking forward to a fun year and hope to see you either at a meeting or one of our exciting events. My name is Jen​ ​Dent​.

My name is Rula​ ​Worrall​ and I will be the council’s secretary this year. I have two children at Meadowlands, in grades 6 and 4, and I have been part of school council for a number of years as well, where I’ve learned so much. My passions are diversity and inclusion, and I’m looking forward to a year of activities that make all the children and their families feel welcome and part of the community.

This year we will be reviewing the events and activities that will be hosted at Meadowlands. We are hoping to try some new things but we also recognize the importance of keeping some of the old favorites. We know there are other great ideas and suggestions in this school community and we encourage anyone to bring them forward, whether by email or attending one of our school council meetings. Our meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of each month The more support and volunteers we have, the greater the impact we can make!

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or concerns, please feel free to contact
us at meadowlandscouncil@gmail.com.

We look forward to meeting you.

Sincerely,

The Meadowlands School Council
