Next School Council Meeting - October 22 -- Elections | Update from our Trustee | What's Next?

Save the Date -- Thursday October 22, 6:30-8:30 ZOOM 

All Fern PS parents and caregivers are welcome (including our friends who have gone virtual, and parents of not-yet-school-aged at Ferncliff)! 

Election: We have one executive position open, Co-Chair of the School Council. If you're interested, let us know. We need someone open to seeing issues from the perspective of parents from JK to grade 8, English, French, and Extended French, who can help arrange the puzzle pieces of our various committees and fundraising efforts, and who is prepared to jump in and help as needed with the details. Happy to provide you with more information if you'd like to join our team. Send any questions to: fernaveschoolcouncil@gmail.com

We also have a number of committee lead positions open, so if you are interested in STEM, Eco-Club, Food Committee, or just pitching in as needed, feel free to put up your hand. 

Principal Update: Ms. Sardella will update us on the specifics of what's happening in the school. 

Trustee Update: Trustee Robin Pilkey will join us to provide an update of issues at the Board level, and to answer your questions. Virtual parents -- while we are happy to have you join us, we will need to limit the amount of time spent on virtual school questions, since this is the meeting for the bricks and mortar school. Virtual school answers will depend on how much time is taken up with other issues. 

What's Next?: Time permitting, we will discuss School Council's priorities going forward, and think about ways we can best support our school community. Depending on how things go in the next three weeks, this will include plans for Outdoor Learning, an inclement weather clothing drive, and ways we can enhance learning at Fern. 

RSVP and Questions: As before, we will send a zoom link before the meeting. Please RSVP before 3pm on October 22 to fernaveschoolcouncil@gmail.com. We can't promise we will get the link to you if you RSVP later.

If you have specific questions or topics for Robin Pilkey, please provide them to us at: fernaveschoolcouncil@gmail.com by Monday, October 19. You will have an opportunity for questions at the meeting, either on the chat function or verbally, but Robin would like to ensure she has full information to answer your questions on the call. Similarly, if there's something you'd like to ask Rosanna, please give us the heads up.

Look forward to seeing you. 
Best, 
School Council Exec
