School Council Update - June

COUNCIL MEETINGS ARE OVER, BUT WE ARE STILL ACTIVE! 

Please consider donating your loyalty points at TERRA to the school. Give the cashier the points number 463884 to earn supplies and plants for the school's greening projects. Thank you.

We say many thanks to Upali Dharmabandhu who is retiring as co-chair after serving on the council for the length of his son’s education at TSMS.

All parents and guardians are welcome to join the council and its meetings anytime. We meet six times a year for regular meetings. In addition, we’ve applied to co-host a parent/guardian keynote presentation featuring a well-known parenting expert during our 2013-14 school year. Visit http://s.coop/tsmscouncilfb to subscribe for email updates about this and other news from your council. 

Our next regular meetings are Sept. 23 and Oct. 21 at 6:30 pm at the school. For meeting summaries, minutes, agendas and a description of what is involved in being a school councillor, please visit the Council blog at www.tsmscouncil.com.

See you in September!

School Council Update - November           

Thank you to the many parents and guardians who have participated on the School Council this year. To date we have submitted a resolution to our Members of Provincial Parliament and the Minister of Education to express our concerns about disruptions in the wake of Bill 115 (an Act to implement restraint measures in the education sector). We also completed our annual consultation for the school board about the characteristics we desire in our school administration, and heard an impassioned presentation from Mississauga youth worker Ken Dryfhout regarding adolescents and keeping communication positive. Thank you, too, to Reem H. who is a new volunteer in the Kiss and Ride drop off program.

A special note of appreciation goes to Mrs. Wagner, vice principal. She has been a steadfast contributor to our council meetings, and has helped us add value to special events such as the Grade 8 career day.  She will be missed at TSMS and its School Council in 2013. We wish her the very best at her new school.  

Our next regular meeting is Mon., Feb. 11, 2013 at 6:30 pm.  For meeting summaries, minutes and agendas, please visit the Council blog at www.tsmscouncil.com. To receive regular email updates, give us your name at http://s.coop/tsmscouncilfb.
