Message from the Chair
Welcome to our new families and students from Fort McMurray. Our hearts and thoughts are with all families from Fort McMurray during this difficult time. Our Playschool has had requests from Fort McMurray families now in Edmonton who have been displaced by the tragedy. To support these families and their little ones with some sense of normalcy, routine and meeting new friends the Playschool will be providing a few no fee ‘spots’ for displaced 3 and 4 year olds from Fort McMurray for the remainder of this school year May/June 2016.
Also we will be accepting donations for Fort McMurray families a box will be placed inside the classroom. We will offer the donations to our new playschool families or donate them to a service agency collecting for the relief fund. Also on our website are listed some resources to help children and families cope with crisis.
As we enjoy the last few weeks of playschool, I would like to thank our teachers, Annette Graham and Cathey Chisholm, for a wonderful year with our children. As well thank you to our substitute teachers Jayme MacDougall and Amber Daniels. As parents, we are so lucky to have the opportunity to watch our kids thrive and learn in such a warm and enriching environment! Your dedication and enthusiasm is so appreciated by everyone!
Also I would like to thank all the parents who have contributed to a successful year, through their parent helper days, fundraising & toy cleaning efforts, and volunteering to help at special events. We couldn’t do it without you!
A big thank you as well to all of my fellow Parent Committee members. You put in many hours of volunteer work to ensure the smooth functioning of our day to day activities and I can’t thank you enough for your time, energy and enthusiasm! What a fantastic group of people to work with! June 2 is our changeover meeting where we will be welcoming several new committee members for the 2016/17 school year. The new members will receive a brief orientation to the Parent Committee and have a chance to meet with their outgoing counterparts.
