Dear parents, guardians and caregivers,Throughout the year, we create a range of opportunities for our community to engage in conversations about learning at Christine Meikle School. This includes day to day conversations with teachers, IPP meetings and team conferences, School Council meetings and conversations about emergent needs and issues with members of the classroom team, SSIL team and admin team. Each year, Alberta Education sends a survey to families of students in grades 4, 7 and 10 with questions about their child's experience at school. Across the CBE, schools also engages families through a survey about School Development Plans (SDPs) and School Fees. The information gathered through these surveys is critical to our planning for the next school year. Below, you will find information about:our upcoming School Council Meeting,the Christine Meikle School Planning Survey, andthe Alberta Education Assurance Survey.We strongly encourage families to participate in these engagement opportunities.
