Parents often ask how they can be more involved at school.  Parental involvement can look like many different things!  Here are just a few of the ways parents are involved in our school:

  • Communicating through email, phone calls with teachers to see how you can better support your child(ren)’s learning
  • Checking e-teacher pages and teacher websites for updates
  • Checking the school website and calendar for updates (
  • Checking the EIPS website for updates (
  • Attending special events like Christmas concerts and assemblies such as Remembrance Day
  • Reading or doing work at home with your child
  • Attending parent/teacher interviews
  • Discussing report cards with your child and helping them set goals for the coming term
  • Volunteering in classrooms or on field trips
  • Coming to parent council meetings, being a class rep or reading the minutes each month
  • Supporting parent council and the school through fundraisers and attending events like the Halloween Dance
  • Helping with cultural events in the school - Épluchette de blé d’Inde, Canoë Volant, CinéMAGINE, Carnaval, Galala, etc..

We truly appreciate all of the many ways parents get involved in their child(ren)’s education and the way everyone supports our amazing school!
