Thanks so much to all those who came out to the SCOCA AGM in May. It was a great meeting! We heard from Principal Tim Carlson that the Board has approved new furniture for all classrooms to support a flexible learning environment. This furniture will be in place for September, when the students come back for another year of learning. Something to look forward to, for sure!
Jackie McDougall, Chair of SCOCA, provided a summary of SCOCA’s activities throughout the past year. In this, our inaugural year, we have been busy! We’ve hosted several SCOCA meetings, kept in touch with parents through website blogs and emails, established a volunteer base, volunteer orientation and a volunteer handbook. We have kept the volunteers busy with a variety of activities from scribing to helping at Sports Events, Drama Productions, as well as helping out with many other school activities. We have also instituted Teacher Appreciation Meals. We have a lot more planned for next year, so certainly stay tuned!
The new SCOCA Executive was voted in at the AGM. Many thanks to those parents who committed their time and efforts this past year and welcome to all incoming Executive members. Your new SCOCA Executive for the 2019-2020 school year is:
