Becoming involved in your child´s education is rewarding for not only your child but also for you as a parent or caregiver. It is simpler than you think! There are so many ways to be involved, there is a fit for every parent or caregiver and for every amount of availability.
A great way to get involved and stay informed with very little commitment is to attend meetings and events at your child´s school. go to www.tdsb.on.ca and look up your child´s school to find information on meetings and events or contact the School Advisory Council (SAC) directly.
in Ward 3 you can attend Ward Council meetings hosted approximately every 6 weeks by Trustee Pamela Gough http://www.tdsb.on.ca/ward3/Ward3/WardCouncilMeetings.aspx
These meetings provide valuable information from guest speakers, Superintendents, the Trustee & Ward 3 Parents. They are also a great way to meet other parents in the Ward and find out about other schools and what Ward 3 has to offer.
