Parent Engagement Calendar

December 2018


Dear Petrides Parent,

We recognize that partnering with parents is critical to ensuring that students have the continuous support necessary to succeed at school.  We are excited to offer opportunities for you to interact with staff and experience yourself, what is expected of our students.  Please see below the Parents as Partners activities we arranged for the month of December.  We invite and encourage you to join us for the interactive sessions that interest you!


Please see attached our high school December Parent Newsletter and our Technology circular which highlights the exciting ways teachers are using technology in the classroom.


We look forward to seeing you at school!



Joanne Buckheit
