In October 2014, all OCSB schools received a PIC Grant that was to be used towards parent involvement initiatives. All spending should have been completed by June 19, 2015.
School councils must complete a final report on the use of their PIC grant. The report is to be signed by the school council chair and the school principal. The report and original receipts are to be returned to Kathy Hodgins, Director’s Office (570 West Hunt Club) by June 19, 2015.
THE SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED.
Thanks to all who participated
PIC and CSPA conducted a survey of school families, in partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board. The purpose of the survey was to find out what information families would like to receive from OCSB schools and how you wish to receive it.
Good communication between home and school allows parents/guardians & school staff to work together to help our children succeed. With many communication tools now in use, we believe it is important to understand how families currently view communication.
The survey was available both online and in printed form (from your school); in English, French, Arabic, Spanish and Simplified Chinese. Participation is voluntary and completely anonymous. We plan to use the survey results to work together with school councils and our school board to put in place communications plans and strategies taking into account parent preferences.
The survey was available in 5 languages:
The purpose of this week is to raise awareness among students, staff and parents of the importance of staying safe while working or volunteering. As parents, we can do a lot to help our children stay safe at work. Let's have these important conversations with our children before they start work!
Young workers are much more likely to be injured on the job and often they don't recognize hazards and hesitate to ask questions. Safety at work is everyone's job.
OCSB provides a number of technology tools and rich digital resources for students to use and support their learning. Many students and parents aren't fully aware of these tools and digital supports or how they can best be used to support their children. So, here is a chance to come and learn more! Two interactive and fun workshops will be offered on each evening at the same time; an Elementary Workshop (Grades: K-6) and an Intermediate / High School Workshop (Grades: 7-12)
Thursday April 30th: Notre Dame HS, 710 Broadview Ave
How do we prepare our children to deal with whatever comes their way? Learn what is resiliency and how it develops in children and youth.
