EIPS is conducting its annual Parent Survey starting Jan. 9, 2017. The survey, which is a supplement to the Alberta Education’s Accountability Pillar survey, is a chance for all EIPS families to share their thoughts on the overall performance of the Division and their school, the quality of education being provided to students and areas for improvement. The feedback gathered will help the Division measure how its meeting the goals and priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015–2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better service its students and the wider community. Please encourage your families to complete the survey, which take only a few minutes. The survey is also posted on www.eips.ca and closes on Jan. 30, 2017.
Be a wee read volunteer!
Brentwood is pleased to announce that we are implementing an exciting new program called wee read. This eight-week program was designed by Alberta Reads (www.albertareadsnetwork.com) to help Kindergarten and Grade One children strengthen the foundations for reading and school success, and help children develop a love for books.
We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that support literacy skills. If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be, there will be a volunteer training session held in the library on Tuesday, January 24th from 3:30 pm-4:30 pm. We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. Please let Mrs. Tomkins, firstname.lastname@example.org know by Friday, January 20th if you can come to the training session.
Cold Weather and Indoor Recess
Students will be outside unless it is approximately -22 degrees Celsius or colder, taking into account the wind chill. During cold winter days, please make sure students are dressed appropriately with hats, mitts, boots and snow pants.
