Principal's Message

June 2018

May was a busy month with our Spring Musicals, Kidney March, and Dance Residency. I would like to thank and acknowledge our Chris Akkerman Parent Society as well as all the parents who worked at the Casino for providing the funds so that our students could participate in this wonderful learning experience.
On Thursday May 10, we held a very successful Welcome to Kindergarten with 86 out of 104 Kindergarten students attending with their parents. Every student who attended was provided with a bag of books and activities to assist with their preparation for Kindergarten. Our teachers shared ideas and suggestions for parents to prepare their child for the upcoming Kindergarten year. I would like to thank our School Council for providing the funds to cover the costs of the Welcome to Kindergarten activity bags.
As the end of the school year approaches, our staff and students are grateful for the support of the many volunteers who contribute their time and talents to our school. Parents who take lead roles in our School Council attend meetings throughout the school year to advise and provide feedback to our school administration. Our reading volunteers support individual students in developing their reading skills visiting the students weekly. Parents volunteer on class field trips, and come into the school to assist in classrooms. Your generosity enhances our school. It was wonderful to see.
At this time, I would like to thank and acknowledge our hardworking School Council. This year they have provided counsel and advice to our school staff and administration on school operations, organized fundraising activities, provided funds for buses for field trips and other activities, planned the fun lunches every month and in general made our school a better place for students and their families. Our staff appreciates their support. Members of this year’s Council and Society Executive were:
Mrs. Atiya Ashna Mrs. Marcy Ryan Mrs. Amanpreet Jatana Mrs. Sadaf Iqbal Mr. Deep Monga
Many of the above members attended 60% of our meetings and as a result were given reserved seating at our Winter and Spring Concerts. If you would like to guarantee a great seat at future concerts, consider attending School Council Meetings and volunteering at our next Casino.
The School Council advises the Principal and school staff on the organization and activities of the school as a whole. The Parent Society fundraises to provide enhancements to school programs. Elections for next year’s executive for both the Council and Society are scheduled for Monday September 24, 2018 at 6:30 PM. All parents with children attending Chris Akkerman are members of the School Council and are eligible to hold a position on the executive. Please consider volunteering your time and expertise to support our school.
