Chromebook cart for 4th Grade

The School Advisory Council met on November 15 and discussed our budget, which included the purchase of an additional Chromebook cart for 4th grade (possible with the generous support of our PTA!!!) as well as subscriptions for Dreambox in all of grade 1 and for support in grades 2 and 3. We also discussed the IT department’s provision of 10 additional Chromebooks to complete our carts in Grade 3. When we considered next budget priorities, the topic of bolstering our classroom libraries was discussed. It is important for every classroom to have a robust collection of books in a variety of genres at a variety of levels in order for children to have rich and engaging reading lives. I am currently on a working group that is assessing our classroom libraries across the district in order to plan for building them up effectively. More to come on that later in the year… Next School Advisory Council meeting is on Wednesday, January 17th: 7:30-8:30am
