Memo to Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

Monday, May 1st, 2017

Parent Perception Survey Results - The PSSC as well as our Core Leadership Team has been meeting to discuss the results of the parent perception survey that was completed this past winter. Overall, the most common themes were around consistency of communication around achievement progress of their children, ensuring students are learning at their current level of achievement, communication of learning goals and events as well as parents wanting to be more involved in the school. We are working to determine next steps in addressing these concerns.  Monthly Calendar to be sent this week - tomorrow you will receive an email with a monthly calendar attached outlining clubs and events taking place during the day at school. This is in response to the parent survey suggestions.

 

Music Festival - Congrats to  our classes and individual students who performed in the Fredericton Music Festival - Creeker Cheers to all of you! This Wednesday, we are inviting all these groups and students to perform for our school at 9:00 am in our gym. Parents are welcome to attend.
