In memory of Ella & Tyler Hernandez

On Friday, April 28th, 2017, our community suffered a tragic loss, which has impacted us all ever so deeply.  Taken from us far too early were Ella Reese Hernandez, age 9, and her beloved cousin Tyler Mollie Wong Hernandez, age 3, who will forever be in our hearts. This fund has been set up for those who care and want to help out, but are unsure of the best way to do so.  Any and all funds donated to the Hernandez family will be used to honour these two angels, and assist their families in caring for one another.  It is hoped that enough money can be raised to help the parents of these little children cover a portion of their funeral expenses and contribute to the well being of the surviving members left in the wake of Friday’s tragic collision.

Nominations

BRAMBLEWOOD PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL (BPAC)

2017/2018 CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

Bramblewood Parent Advisory Council (BPAC) needs a strong Executive Team to ensure it can obtain government funding for our school, organize great events for our children and families, and maintain strong communications and relationships with our school staff.  Each year the BPAC is required to elect new PAC Executive members for a one year term, which runs from July 1st to June 30th.  The BPAC also looks for individuals for other non-executive positions that coordinate programs for the PAC.

As a parent/guardian of a Bramblewood Student, you are considered a general member of the BPAC and may submit your name to volunteer for a position, or nominate another parent/guardian for a position.  All names submitted will be considered and a vote will be held at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 at 6:30pm in the school Library.

Please forward your name or the name of a nominee along with the position of interest, email address and phone number to contact@bramblewoodpac.com on or before Friday, May 12, 2017.

This year is especially critical in that we have a number of parents who hold key positions who are moving on because it is their child’s last year at the school.

The simple fact is that if there aren’t parents willing to coordinate a program/event it will NOT HAPPEN so many of the things the school community has come to enjoy over the years could disappear.  Most of the position tasks can be set to your own schedule so being members of the Executive or a Program Coordinator can be conducive for all types of work schedules.

Please consider getting involved with the BPAC for the 2017/2018 school year.

Your involvement makes a huge difference in the school and for your child!!

A Fresh Start

Dear Parents

 

Wow, where did the summer go? Anyone see it? Yes it is that time of the year again. Back to school. Don’t forget that the new 2016 / 2017 school year starts on Sept 6, 2016.

For those of you new in the school we welcome you wholeheartedly. You will love every moment spent in this amazing community. For those of you returning, welcome back. And we all need to fasten our seat-belts as our children are now one year older.

With a new school year comes a refreshed website design. We hope you like it. Our goal is to serve you in the best possible way. Your feedback is always welcome.

See you all soon

Change to PAC Bylaws

NOTICE

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO BRAMBLEWOOD PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL BYLAW

SECTION XII – PAC REPRESENTATION to the SCHOOL PLANNING COUNCIL (PAC-SPC Rep.)

Bill 11 has taken effect which means that the School Planning Council was removed from legislature and no longer exists in the School Act and is now at policy level.

A vote will take place on Wednesday, April 6th at 7:00pm in the school Library to remove Section XII PAC Representation to the School Planning Council (PAC-SPC Rep.) from the Bramblewood PAC Bylaws.

There is a “Framework for Enhancing Student Learning” developed by the Ministry of Education that will not be legislated but does exist at a policy level, meaning how it is implemented will vary from district to district rather than being the same province wide. The DPAC is still learning and having meetings with the District office to see how this will look in SD43.
