Week Without Walls (WWW) Parent Information Session – Friday, October 13 at 2:00 pm in the Bayside Amphitheatre. This Week Without Walls information session is for any parents wanting to meet their trip leaders, know more about their WWW trip or that still have any questions to be answered directly by the organisers. There will be a representative from DragonFly present as well as our school trip leaders for each trip to discuss, in person, any questions you might have. Each grade level trip leader will give a brief overview of their trip, then the DragonFly representative will speak about their trips in general with a focus on their history, experience, training and safety. We will then answer any questions you might still need to be answered.
Student-Involved Conferences – Monday, October 16, 4:30-6:30 pm for MS students/parents only. Tuesday, October 17, 7:45-5:00 pm for MS and HS students/parents. Please follow this link to SignUpGenius to sign up for a Student-Involved Conference time. Student-Involved Conferences are an opportunity for parents, together with their child, to meet with teachers. It is important that your child attend the conference with you. We ask parents to sign up for a 2-hour time block to meet with all of their child’s teachers. (If you have more than one child you must sign up for more than one time block.) All of the teachers will be stationed on the first floor at Bayside in the music rooms, the drama room, in the cafe area, and in the amphitheater. Parents will be free to move around the first floor and meet with teachers for up to 10 minutes. If you need to meet longer, you can schedule a time to come in another day and continue your conversation. We require parents to sign up ahead of time for these conferences. We will honour the time of those who signed up so no “drop ins” are allowed.
