The Calgary Association of Parents and School Councils would like to welcome it's members back to the second half of the school year and we look forward to seeing you at our meetings in 2013.  First up is our January meeting which will take place Wednesday January 23rd at 7:00pm AE Cross School library (3445-37 St SW). 
This month we will be hearing from Jillian Drysdale who will be discussing her involvement with the Alberta Safe Streets initiative, which aims to extend playground zone hours to include all school start times.

Following her presentation the CAPSC executive will be hosting a conversation on how CAPSC as an organization can aid in promoting communication among school councils.  The executive will be looking for opinions on methods that CAPSC can use to facilitate council networking, and will also be looking for your council's success stories with engaging other associations.  Finally, CAPSC would like to get membership input towards the creation of guidelines for establishing public positions that best represent the interests of our members.   

As always, CAPSC values our member contributions.  Please feel free to attend our monthly meetings or contact a member of our team should you have comments or feedback.
