There are a series of parent information sessions on the education system. These programs should be quite enlightening for parents who are newcomers to the education system, as well as to parents who want to learn more about the new curriculum. Programs coincide with our Reading Buddies afterschool program as many parents are already in the library at that time.
Program information is as follows:
- Thursday, October 6th, 4:00-4:45pm: School Expectations
- Thursday, November 3rd, 4:00-4:45pm: B.C.’s New Curriculum
- Thursday, December 1st, 4:00-4:45pm: Report Cards
The first session, “School Expectations”, will discuss ways to help your child have a successful school year and find out what you can do to support your child’s learning. The “B.C.’s New Curriculum” session will help parents understand the recent changes to the curriculum and the impact it will have on their child’s education. The series concludes with a session on “Report Cards” which will give parents tips on how to support their child’s learning in upcoming terms.
