7 Reports

Principal D. Stewart reported that:
An apology is in order to M. Battaglia for the lack of follow-up on her generous offer of her house for this last meeting of the year  2011/12 will see 6 or7 new teachers at DES due to Ghada Youness part of priority pool, Ginette Bergevin retiring, Caitlin Decker at the end of her contract, and substitute teacher Christine Mayer not having Quebec certification.  2011/12 will see a 3rd kindergarten to be arranged by compressing Cycle 2 and making a Grade 3/4 split . This is an excellent model when the students are chosen appropriately. There will 2 new kindergarten teachers hired.  The grade 3 classes will be large but this is a very calm group of students. If another teacher is allocated to the school, another resource teacher will be added. Looping will be continued for Cycle 1 teachers with the Grade 1 teacher moving to Grade 2. In response to the question as to whether clique issues are amplified by this model, S. Ferrara replied in the negative as all the grade 2s are together often. D. Stewart concluded by noting how much he enjoyed GB.

DES Pre-K has existed for the last 17 years; with rent to pay at the church, it was hard to keep viable. At the present time it has no debts; Home & School has voted not to run a pre-school in 211/12 because the co-ordinator Antonella Baratta’s last child is graduating from the school, and because it is a financial risk as debts would have to be absorbed by H&S, and because most of the students attending did not have eligibility and did not subsequently attend DES. Antonella plans to continue it as a private enterprise.  H&S will host a Welcome Back BBQ on Friday Sept 9, 2011 with the $4.00 cover charge just to cover costs for 2 hot dogs, burgers, veggie dogs or veggie-burgers and unlimited salads.
