SPECIAL EDUCATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE WANTS YOU!

 

The Special Education Advisory Committee Wants You!

 

The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) advises the school board on its organization of services for students with special needs, educates parents as well as encourages them to become involved in their child’s school experience.

 

Parents of students with special needs constitute the majority of members on this committee.  The SEAC Chairperson and Parent Commissioner are selected from parent members of this committee.  Other members represent the various professional and support groups in the ETSB.

 

The committee allows you to meet and talk with others who have the interest of children with special needs at heart.  Meetings are held monthly in Magog at the Eastern Townships School Board Office between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m.  Mileage compensation is available.

 

If this committee interests you, please ask your school principal for an application brochure or call the Assistant Director of Complementary Educational Services, Gail Kelso, at (819) 868-3100 x55035 to give your name or to ask for clarification.  Forms should be returned to your school principal by October 4, 2017.

 

 HEROES’ GYM UNIFORMS- SHORTS & T-SHIRTS

 

Shorts and t-shirts are available at the office at a cost of 10.00$ each.

The sale of shorts and t-shirts will occur ONLY during homeroom time and recess,

as well as on pre-determined times – ie. Parent evenings, etc.

 

WALKERS DOOR

 

As in the past we will assign an adult to assist the students who do not take a bus home at the end of the day.  The teacher will be stationed at the walkers’ entrance, and will release each student when the student identifies his/her parent/guardian.  We therefore ask parents/guardians to come to the walkers’ door to pick up their child. 

One additional request, we have several classrooms just inside the walkers’ entrance.  Heroes’ is asking parents to refrain from smoking while waiting for their child.  The smoke often travels into the classrooms through the open windows.

 

LIBRARY NEWS

 

Library classes will begin very shortly, and we are asking that all library books be

returned the morning before the scheduled library period, in order to allow our

volunteers more time for books to be shelved. 

Therefore we ask that you respect the Due-Date on your child’s book(s).

 

PPO NEWS

The first PPO meeting will take place on Wednesday, September 13th @ 7:00 pm.  If you are interested in being part of a dynamic team, come on the 13th.
