“Getting to Great” SURVEY for parents

Getting to Great: Please complete the new HRSB Getting to Great survey by May 8th. Getting to Great allows all parents/guardians, teachers, and students in grades 4-12 to share information that will help us improve schools. We are on a mission to make every school a great school, but we cannot get to great without you. Your voluntary participation in this survey will help us to identify the strengths and challenges at our school, so we can do our part to enhance the opportunities for students to learn. Your input is valuable in helping us make improvements that will directly impact your child’s learning and school experience. The online survey is available until May 8th. Please visit the website: select PARK WEST SCHOOL to start the survey. You are welcome to complete a survey for each of your children attending our school. Please remember, all survey information is anonymous and is not used to evaluate individuals. We need at least 10% of our parents to complete the survey to provide us with reliable and valuable data. Unfortunately, last year very few of our parents completed the survey. All students in grades 4 – 9 will be completing the survey at school.

Parent – Teacher Interviews – April 22 & 23

Let’s Talk About Student Progress: On Wednesday, April 22 (1:00 – 3:30 pm) and Thursday, April 23 (5:30 -7:30 pm) parents and teachers will be meeting to discuss student progress. Teachers, including specialists (French, music, band, resource, phys. ed., guidance, learning centre, EAL, etc.), will be available to meet with you to discuss your child’s progress. Elementary teachers will meet in their classrooms with parents by appointment. Parents of elementary students were given the opportunity to request appointment times with their child’s teacher. Junior High teachers will meet with parents in the gymnasium on a first-come/first-served basis. Jr. High parents are encouraged to take advantage of the availability of afternoon meeting times when possible, as the evening tends to be busier. To accommodate all parents most appointments will be for ten minutes each. If more time is required to discuss your child’s progress then a longer appointment can be made for another time. Information (including confirmation of appointment times) were recently sent home with elementary students. Some teachers may feel it is not necessary to meet with you at this time. If that is the case then you will be contacted by telephone by the teacher to review your child’s progress. If you feel an in-person meeting with the teacher is preferred then you will be accommodated with an appointment time.

Safety First

Safety First:   For the safety of our students and staff (and everyone who visits our school) all drivers on our grounds are expected to follow these guidelines:

• No parking in the traffic loop (except in the four designated visitor parking spots)
• No parking in Fire Lanes.
• A “Drop Off” zone is provided in the traffic loop for a QUICK drop-off or pick-up of students. Do not stay stopped or parked in the Drop Off zone. Move to the front of the Drop Off zone as far as possible when dropping off or picking up.
• Drop off and pick up students at curbside in the Drop Off zone, not in the middle of the traffic loop.
• Drive slowly. The maximum speed posted is 15 km per hour.
• Be aware of the marked cross walks. Stop when necessary for pedestrians to cross.
• Do not park in or drive through the staff parking lot.
• Visitor parking is available at the south end of the building (adjacent to the garbage compound).
• School buses always have the right-of-way in the traffic loop. At no time should vehicles impede the movement and parking of school buses on school property.
• Handicap parking spaces are only to be used for those with permits displayed.
