***Message from Safe Prom Committee*** to Parents of Grade 11 Students

We are seeking your help with setup and decorating at Axtion on May 26 @9:30PM. Graduates will be arriving at Axtion 12PM following Senior Prom dance. We need approximately 8-10 people and we currently have 4 confirmed. I’ve put my sister, Claudette Hickey, in charge as she was there last year and is familiar with the setup we had last year. I’ll be setting up a quick meeting to go over things Tuesday evening at Queen Elizabeth Regional High School.

We would very much appreciate your help, plus it’s a great opportunity for you to see what we have planned and organized this year since your son/daughter will be graduating next year. If interested, you can contact me via email Bgpriddle@nl.rogers.com or by phone at 685-5617.

I sincerely hope next year you continue organizing a 3rd safe prom. Last year was a huge success and we anticipate the same again next week.

Thanks in advance.

Parents Please Complete this School Development and School Climate Survey

April 24, 2017
Subject: Request for Feedback – Family Survey

Dear Parent/Guardian,
This year, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is launching new annual school development surveys to replace previous school development and school climate surveys. The new surveys were designed and tested for reliability and validity by Panorama Education and researchers at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, and are currently being used by over 7,000 schools in 15+ countries. The Department piloted the surveys using online survey administration in five schools in Fall 2016, and the feedback from the pilot was used to make adjustments to the survey instruments.

The results of the Family Survey will help schools better understand the perceptions of the parents/ guardians in their school community. Together with feedback from students and staff, the survey data will help schools to identify strengths and areas for growth as they engage in school development.
The survey is anonymous, which means that we cannot connect your survey responses to you. We encourage everyone to participate so that we have the most accurate representation of family perceptions at your school.

Please complete the Family Survey by Tuesday, May 16th, 2017 by clicking on the following link:

https://www.research.net/r/SDFamilyEN

If you do not have internet access, you may contact your school to arrange access to a school computer or mobile device for survey completion.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new school development surveys, please contact:

Jennifer Smith at 709-729-5588 or jenniferfsmith@gov.nl.ca or
Patricia Emberley at 709-729-6850 or patriciaemberley@gov.nl.ca

Thank you for your participation and for being a valued member of your school community.

Sincerely,
