  •  Language Survey

Dear Students,

We are in the process of updating our records regarding the languages students commonly use. This information will help us better serve the diverse language needs of our students. You will soon be asked to complete a Student Language Survey during tutor time. It is very important that you answer all of the questions truthfully and completely. The survey will take only a few minutes to complete. Please ask your tutor if you have any questions.

Thank you for your help. (Ms Lemery)

On Friday, April 7th we discussed the following: establishing a non-elected media committee, Staff Appreciation Reception, and planning events for next year. The motion to establish a non-elected media committee that would be responsible for documenting StuCo events and cooperating with STUCO passed with a full house, and respective student council members will continue planning and organizing details to start this group next year.

All Student Council members are organizing a staff appreciation reception on April 14th to present a small gift to show gratitude towards non-teaching staff members such as the custodians and office workers for all the work they have done for us this year.

We also started to plan dates to schedule school events for the upcoming school year. If you have any questions, concerns, or opinions, please feel free to contact any of the respective student council members.

Regards, (Angela Choi, Student Council Secretary)
