Contribute to Strategic Planning at YRDSB – Upcoming Town Halls

York Region District School Board is revisioning its Multi-Year Plan (MYP) and Board Improvement Plan for Student Achievement and Well-being. The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting the strategic direction of public education in York Region public schools. The MYP incorporates the direction established by the Trustees with feedback received from all stakeholders, and will inform decision making at the Board in the years to come. Town halls will be taking place across the region and feedback collected from families and community members will inform the creation of a new MYP. Your voice is important and your input and feedback will help York Region District School Board support student achievement and well-being. There will also be other opportunities, including a survey available in April, to share your thoughts if you are unable to attend a town hall.

Report Card and Envelopes

Report cards were sent home yesterday for Term 1 (September- February 1). This is an excellent time to set realistic goals for term 2 with your child.

Please return the report card envelope to your child’s home room teacher next week. Help us help our environment by allowing us to reuse envelopes for term 2.
