Message from the Chair
Happy New Year! I trust that everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and a much needed break to spend time with loved ones. A big “thank you” to everyone who donated to the Kids Kottage Foundation. They were so appreciative of the generosity of our families and this was a wonderful opportunity to teach our children how important it is to support and care for others, especially around the Christmas season.
Our second Parent Meeting of the year will be held January 7, 2015 in the Lymburn School Music Room. We will be providing important information for the second semester and parents will then be signing up for their second semester Helper Days. One parent from each family needs to attend this meeting. When signing up please pick approximately ONE day a Month. If you cannot be there for any reason, please advise your class rep and they will assign your helper days from those left after sign up. Please find alternate childcare for your children, as space is limited and this will ensure everyone can hear and pay attention to the information being presented.
We have made some changes to the Parent Handbook and registration form, thank you to Michelle our Registrar for all her hard work. These changes were based on feedback from our survey from last year, Parent Committee approval, insurance and Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) requirements. We will discuss further at the parent meeting the changes for 2016-2017. They include
- Financial amalgamation with CLCL
- Mandatory Callingwood-Lymburn Community League (CLCL) Membership
- Increase in fee/month
- Mandatory chocolate fundraiser 2x/year in Sept. & Jan. (eliminating a fall fundraiser)
We will also be accepting registration for 2016-2017 registration for returning families only. Only complete registrations will secure your child’s spot on the class list. A complete registration must include ALL necessary forms of payment attached to the registration form.
