HELPFUL THINGS FOR YOU FROM CAPSC.

TRADE SHOW FAIR – JANUARY 21

Resources for School Councils in Calgary!

7pm – 8:30pm at A.E.Cross Junior High School (3445 37th St. S.W.)

This is a chance for your school council to see a whole lot of helpful people in one shot. We have invited all the best school council service providers and supports to come and set up a table. It will be the ‘ONE STOP SHOP’ for your school council needs: The best fundraisers, superior presenters, experts on effective initiatives, helpful groups in the community (that you didn’t even know about!), and everyone else you can possibly imagine will be there to let you know what they can do to support and help school councils. We want to ensure that you have the best help possible. Come out with your team and save a lot of time and trouble.

It will be incredibly helpful!  RSVP here

 

PLANS FOR THIS YEAR

CAPSC is planning several things for this coming year:

• January 21 Trade Show Fair for Calgary school councils. TONS of incredible help in one place!

• AGM on February 18. Join the CAPSC executive team for a year. We are looking for a Treasurer and a few board members to be on the executive this coming year. It’s a very rewarding job and tons of fun! 

• March 18 CBE Trustee by-election forum and debate.

• A spring Fundraiser for the benefit of several schools in Calgary that don’t have strong parent support groups

• A Meeting with Alberta Education for Calgary school parents 

• June 17 Award and Recognition Gala event for outstanding school volunteers this year 

 

DO YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL WEBSITE?

CBE is looking for feedback on their school websites until January 15. After that they will be making changes. Have your say now on their school website feedback survey . If you are in another school board, send an email to your Trustee and explain your ideas or concerns.

 

DO YOU HAVE A CHILD IN GRADE 3 WHO TOOK THE SLA's?

Alberta School Councils Association is looking for your help in an online webinar one hour focus group – January 13 (evening), January 15 (daytime), or January 20 (evening). Go to their website to learn more and take your feedback to the top.

SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL!
