Parents take part in workshops. Now’s the time to look ahead to elect new local executives

 

It’s hard to believe another school year is coming to a close. I want to personally thank all the local home and school volunteers for the important work you do for our children and our communities. It takes a team of parents and educators working together to advocate for our students in a given year of school activities.

 

Voices need to be heard. Schools encouraged to send parents, guardians, educators and students to 66th annual meeting and convention on April 13.

 

The Prince Edward Island Home and School Federation’s 66th Annual Meeting & Convention will take place on Saturday, April 13 at the Rodd Charlottetown hotel.  Every school is encouraged to send parents, guardians, educators and students to ensure their school community is represented.

Time to discuss 2019 resolutions. Annual meeting, convention set for April 13 at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel

Planning is underway for the Prince Edward Island Home and School Federation’s 66th Annual Meeting & Convention. The meeting will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Rodd Charlottetown hotel. This year’s theme is Stop. Collaborate & Listen.

Every school is encouraged to send representatives. Parents, guardians, educators and students are welcome. The registration package was mailed to home and school presidents and is available online at: http://peihsf.ca/agm. One registered delegate will win a night’s stay at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel. Register your school’s delegates by Friday, March 29.

One of the most important activities that local home and school associations go through each year is the discussion of proposed provincial policy resolutions. Once passed, these resolutions allow the Home and School Federation to speak with a collective voice.

Work focuses on children, teamwork. Nine P.E.I. schools to pilot health school food program in the fall.

The work of the P.E.I Home and School Federation in 2019 continues to focus on the importance of collaboration and advocacy in our work toward the well-being and education of all Island children.

                       

Making some changes. The beginning of each year is a great time to think about creating resolutions for 2019.

The new year is a time where many of us make resolutions to better things or improve ourselves. Resolutions are a powerful tool that local home and school associations use to drive change on a provincial level in P.E.I.’s education system. Home and schools are encouraged to consider issues of broad provincial importance to education, and to develop resolutions that recommend concrete changes to policy at the department or board level.

School food youth forums coming over next six weeks: Federation hosts successful semi-annual meeting and information exchange

Students from East Wilshire and Kinkora schools, Jordan Brown, minister of education, early learning, and culture, Susan Willis, deputy minister, Parker Grimmer and Dale Sabean from the Public Schools Branch participated in the Home and School Exchange World Cafe. 

New school year good time to get involved. Upcoming weeks feature variety of events, including leadership training and semi-annual.
