HOME AND SCHOOL ASSOCIATION WORKSHOPS

The PEI Home and School Association are holding a series of three workshops bringing together home and school members and other educational stakeholders to work together to identify issues in education that would benefit from attention. The meetings will begin with a brainstorming session to identify the range of issues of concern, and will then collectively select a subset of those issues and break into small groups to identify possible actions, resolutions, or projects that can help to address them.

The workshops will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. as follows:

  • January 26 at Montague Consolidated School
  • January 27 at Elm Street Elementary School in Summerside
  • January 29 at Spring Park Elementary School in Charlottetown.

Interested parties are welcome to attend.  (The Dean will be attending the Charlottetown session).  A report of the issues identified at these workshops will be circulated in February.  If you have further questions, please contact Peter Rukavina, president of the PEI Home and School Association.
