FROM THE PRINCIPAL - EDUCATING OUTSIDE THE LINES

In partnership with the Braeside PTO and parent organizations around the district, I am excited to share that Educating Outside the Lines is coming to Braeside the week of April 15. This week long affair will bring multiple learning opportunities to all classes to learn about, explore, and even experience living with differences. During this week, we will invite parent volunteers to join us in facilitating the program and see the learning up close. For those that are interested, please take a look at your availability the week of April 15 and reserve some time on April 11 at 9:00 a.m. for a mandatory training prior to the lessons. A parent sign up form will be coming out early next week.

PARENT LEARNING SERIES #3 HELP! - April 3 @ 7:30 p.m.

In this session, participants will engage in a round table conversation about how much or how little they should provide help at home to their child. Homework? Climbing a tree? Executive functioning? Cleaning the room? Space to work? Where do adults fit in with the needs of children to be their best advocates and self promoters?

SPRING CONFERENCE SIGN UP

As the temperature slowly rises we can see spring on the horizon. That means another chance to have you as our guests at school to discuss the progress being made throughout the year. We treasure this time with you and hope you’ll be able to attend during the days that are reserved for conferences. To sign up, please following this link.
